Alex & Gareth-San Jose Engagement Photos

Alex is one of my best friends, she's getting married in Sonoma in
July, and I'm soooo excited. She is amazing and wanted me to actually get to attend a wedding for once (I normally end up shooting them all), so I recommended another great photographer to shoot the wedding instead, and I get to drink champagne and dance the night away. I'm super excited, but after shooting some photos for them for their save the date, now I'm wishing I'd get to photograph their wedding too! How gorgeous of a couple are they??? Congrats Alex and Gareth! Can't wait for the wedding!

Nora portraits

Some kids LOVE having their picture taken and just smile away, posing (maybe a little too much sometimes...) and in general just having a ball. Other kids...not so much. I think Nora allowed me to take maybe 5-10 minutes of photos, which I totally understand as there was important playing that needed to be done. She's hilarious and adorable though, so I'm glad I was able to distract her from the playground for a little bit to get a few photos for her parents. Then we got to play tag, go on the slide and ride bikes home. I'd say it was pretty successful.

Aussie weddings

Here are just a handful of photos from some of the weddings I've shot over here in Australia. More to come!






Since we live in an area of Australia where summer is the rainy season, it's not unusual to have rain (or really...a torrential downpour) during weddings.




Or...the weather can go the opposite direction and it can so unbelievably hot that it melts the gummy bears meant for your guests.


But oh....when the sun is out and it's not too hot..... it's pretty amazing.




Australians hat game is much, much stronger.


This is a pretty standard looking group of Aussie guys from the town where we live. Wearing footy shorts (shorter, athletic shorts to an American), sitting in the bed of a ute (a truck), with their dog, drinking beer. If they were drinking XXXX instead of a german beer, these may be the most Australian photos I've ever taken!


And it's true what they say, everything here will try to kill you. Even the deer.
