Show Me Your Favorite Spot

Maybe it’s the place where you proposed. Or the location of the first date. Or just a place you both hold dear in your hearts. I’d love to join you in one or even a few locations to capture the perfect images of the love you share together. I have extensive experience using natural light and can bring out the best features of your favorite place. 

Looking for suggestions? I’ve worked in many locations around California and even as far as Paris. My favorites are Grove of Old Trees in Occidental, Old Mill Park in Mill Valley, The Marin Headlands, Yosemite Valley, Lake Tahoe, and many more. California provides so many different backdrops in such a short radius. I can help you find the perfect place, from the mountains, to the sprawling vineyards of the valley, to the beach. 

Keep It Casual

Does the thought of being in front of a camera give you a jolt of anxiety? You’re not alone. Many couples are camera shy but my experience has always been that this anxiety washes away after the first few photos. I’ve often been praised for how comfortable I make my clients feel, and in the end, we always end up with authentic photos worth cherishing. My style of bringing in the scale of the landscape also takes some of the pressure off of the close-up and perfectly compliments the shyer types.
