Gabe + Nikki | Los Gatos, CA Wedding

Gabe + Nikki were married at Nestldown in Los Gatos California and I had the incredible honor of joining Pictilio! The image below stood out because it shows the light that flows out of Nikki and reveals the unapologetic love Gabe has for his bride. They were such a joy to work with and the day was absolutely stunning in every way. More to come!

My Life in Photos This Fall

Fall PhotosIt’s Friday! And we have also entered into a new season, which is completely hard to believe. My fall has been filled with weddings and family gatherings,…busy and all good stuff!

Left: My most recent wedding in Livermore, CA. The WONDERFUL Michael + Jenni. Top Middle: My sister-in-law celebrated her birthday here in Monterey with us and we went to lunch at Roys. It happened to be one of the most beautiful days we have had here! Bottom Middle: Monterey plant life near Monterey Beach. Right: A beach pier not too far from our house at Asilomar Beach in Pacific Grove, CA.

As my wedding season comes to a close this month, I look forward to the holidays spent with new babies in the family, adventures with Adam, planning ahead for the upcoming wedding season, rejuvenating, baking with friends, and connecting with our community and gorgeous surroundings here in Monterey.  What do you have planned this season?
