Chalk Hill Wedding with Garden Details

If you have met Danielle and Caleb then you love them dearly. The moment I met them, there was an instant spark, a kindred spirit thing that set the tone for what their wedding was going to be all about. The love that pours out of these two really is contagious, unique, magnetic. Chalk Hill winery in Healdsburg served as the perfect backdrop for these two love birds’ wedding day. Danielle donned a strapless lace dress from Sarah Seven and carried a loose garden bouquet with trailing jasmine vine and cafe au lait dahlias. It was stunning! Caleb was decked in a formal black tux for this black tie event. The Ceremony was held on the lawn ringed with beautiful oak trees and a swagged arbor with eucalyptus garlands marked the spot.  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed tasty bites from Stark Catering paired with estate wines during cocktail hour. For dinner, a Zepyhr Tent featured long farm house tables decorated with lush, blush, floral arrangements featuring annabelle hydrangea, garden roses, and dahlias by wedding planner and floral designer Jenna Lam Events. After dinner, the couple kicked off the dancing with an elaborate first dance featuring a mash up of the couple’s favorite songs ranging from Stevie Wonder to Queen. Special thanks to Utterly Engaged for featuring this wedding!

It is always a joy to see my work in the pages of a print magazine, especially one as beautifully curated as Utterly Engaged. I felt so honored and lucky to document such a memorable day for Danielle and Caleb. Their wedding (more to come soon!) was a dream to be a part of mainly because the love that poured out of this couple was truly infectious. To this day, its one my all time favorite weddings. If you haven’t picked up a copy of Utterly Engaged, you’re missing out. The pages in this magazine are truly a work of art, especially if you’re a print obsessed collector like me.

Caitlin & Andrew, ENGAGED


One of the greatest highlights of my wedding season this year was meeting Caitlin & Andrew. Effortless, cool and just downright the sweetest people you’ll meet. I was truly honored to not only photograph these two during such a special season of their lives but to find a kindred connection with them both. We explored the same trails that Caitlin grew up running with her dad. These grounds hold a such a special place in her heart as she embarks on a new journey with Andrew there is even more richness with every step.

A favorite gift to give: Artifact Uprising!


Its no secret that I love photographs but one thing that gives me a dose of #momguilt is not printing my photos as much as I need to. These days, I’m constantly shooting photos of the girls and their budding relationship or our weekend adventures and as a result I feel the desperate need to see these photos on our walls or in albums before I forget all about them. We can all agree, kids grow too fast and I get really sad when I see that an app on my phone is reminding me about what life was like a year ago (*cough* Timehop *cough). I want to see more of those moments on my walls, not just on my phone! SO…I’m making a decision to frame more photos, print more personal albums and pull the trigger on ordering prints (even if I don’t have the perfect plan for where each one will live). I don’t want to see my photos get lost on my camera roll anymore.


In honor of Father’s Day, I printed a photograph of Arash and the girls from our recent weekend trip to San Francisco. I absolutely love this photograph because its captures the three of them so authentically. (Look how Aria has her hand rested on Arash! I can’t even.) Makes my heart melt!


Im so thankful for Artifact Uprising who has made my #momguilt a little more bearable. I can order prints, albums, even a custom frame directly from the app on my phone or on my desktop. Its super easy to take advantage of all those photos we snap and make some beautiful printed art. For this photo of Arash and the girls, I chose Artifact Uprising’s 11×14 Gallery Frame in the Walnut finish. Im so happy with how it turned out because its the perfect addition to our home. The quality is exceptional and the printing is spot on!

For one week you can get 10% off your order, just in time for that Father’s Day inspired gift! Enter the code: BLGDMAU10 for 10% off site wide. Say no to that #momguilt and let’s start printing our sweetest memories!!


Intimate Backyard Wedding in Sonoma


Cody & Jerome met in kindergarten and after 3rd grade they lost touch only to be reunited 20 years later when Cody moved back to Cali from NY and Jerome had his bags packed to move to NY from Cali. Their story is like a movie! They tackled a long distance relationship for a while but distance could’t keep these two away from each other. When it came time to plan their wedding, they wanted something casual and intimate. Cody and Jerome decided to get married at Jerome’s parent’s home where they had spent a lot of time during their relationship. Stacy Mccain came on board and transformed the backyard into a beautiful, casual farm-to-table dinner party catered by Farmshop Marin and Hog Island Oysters. The food was out of this world and the prettiest eye candy I have ever seen, really. The gorgeous florals pulled it all together, designed by the ever so talented, Studio Mondine. Im so in love with every detail of this day, it was warm, sweet and just like Cody and Jerome, it was meant to be.
