Allison and Shane will celebrate their wedding next year at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, and I feel fortunate that they booked me as their wedding photographer. When they decided to shoot an engagement session together this fall, I proposed to photograph them in some of my favorite, secret places of Coastal Sonoma County: a path that leads to a secluded prairie in the Redwood Forest, and a beach on a quiet corner of Highway 1. What a treat to witness this couple's joyful and pure love in such setting! 

Engagement Session in Big Sur // Agustina and Patricio

Before their wedding in Argentina next February, Agustina and Patricio decided to take a road trip from LA to San Francisco. On their way up, they stopped in Big Sur and we explored the amazing landscape during an engagement session that ended up being one of the highlights of their journey. I'm so happy I was able to photograph them at such special time!


Andrea and Balint were such a dear couple for me to photograph. I met them in San Francisco, where we shot their engagement session that was later on published on The Knot. Kindness is the first word that comes to mind when I think of them. There is also the recollection of a profound feeling of joy from experiencing the love they have for each other.

The day of their wedding was a celebration of that joyful love, and was shared with their closest family and friends in the beautiful wine country of Paso Robles. You can read more about them in The New York Times, who published their wedding story with one of the photographs we shot together in San Francisco.
