Tina & Marty’s Wedding at Boundary Oak Golf Club | Walnut Creek Wedding Photographer

I’ve been waiting for Tina and Marty’s big day since their engagement shoot this summer. They’re a super lovely couple and their wedding ceremony has been the most emotional one I’ve shot so far! T&M wanted to keep the traditions but also couldn’t wait to spend a few minutes with each other before the ceremony, so they opted for a “first touch” — meeting each other back-to-back under a tree without looking. It was such a perfect choice for them! Romantic and personal, yet keeping all the emotion and surprises for the moment Tina walked down the aisle with her parents. It was their love and trust for each other that made everyone cry at the ceremony and it was a beautiful moment to witness and share with you all.

Congratulations, Tina and Marty!

A & F’s Wedding | Bay Area Same Sex Wedding Photographer

A & F’s wedding ceremony was held in the Santa Clara county chapel. It was a very touching one – there was not a dry eye in the room and their friend did an amazing job by singing All of Me to conclude the ceremony! The reception was then held at the rooftop patio at the Loft Bar & Bistro where many more of their friends joined in.

A & F, I adore the deep love between you, and I wish you two (and the little plus one that is on the way) all the best!! Congrats 🙂

Violet Smashing the Cake | Bay Area Baby Birthday Photography

Little Violet is one year old! She is OH SO adorable!! I LOVE everything of this cake smashing set up. Everything is, literally, violet — the banner, the cake, the blanket, the necklace, the hair bands, and even the custom made diaper! Little Violet certainly enjoyed that cake as she flipped it over and smashed the whole thing 🙂

Happy birthday Violet!
