Sabine & Jacob’s wedding celebration at Nikitsch Castle in Austria was such a unique and beautiful celebration planning and styled by the talented ladies of A Very Beloved Wedding. Sabine & Jacob share a love of traveling, food and shisha and their wedding incooporated all three beautifully. There were so many special details- I loved how herbs and vegetables were brought into the wedding styling and the market stands served up the most beautiful dinner buffet I have ever seen.

When Kristen, Adrian and I planned their engagement session together, we had envisioned the beautiful golden hour light for their Mount Tam engagement photos. On our drive over the bridge into Marin County, the fog started to get thicker and once we met them for the shoot, the sun had all but disappeared. But personally, I think the fog is even more beautiful and romantic in the photos! I always try and find beauty in the unexpected, this was one of those moments when the unexpected surpassed our expectations! I love the way film rendered the tones of the fog and golden hills. I can’t wait to share their wedding images, it was such a gorgeous celebration!
Katharina & Vishal’s multicultural Indian Wedding was so much fun to photograph. I always love seeing how my clients blend traditions and cultures to create a memorable and unique wedding celebration. Their German/Indian wedding started with a traditional Indian Baraat, followed by a traditional Indian wedding ceremony and ended with a black tie wedding reception. The colors were incredible and I loved how they were captured on film!
We were so honored to join Tiff & Anthony for their elopement in Positano over the summer. It was such a magical day and I have the biggest smile on my face looking through these photos and thinking about our day together on the Amalfi Coast. Tiff courageously battled cancer for the last two years and is now cancer free (!!!) They planned a fabulous summer trip through France and Italy, ending with their Positano elopement. Andreas and I both were so moved by their love for one another and so honored to be there to document a day that celebrated their commitment and future together.

Rade and David and their guests came all the way from Los Angeles to celebrate their marriage on the French Riviera, one of their favorite places in the world, and it was definitely one for the books! Their Grand Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat Wedding was held at one of the world’s most fabulous hotels, located at the southern tip of the Saint Jean Cap Ferrat peninsula. They chose an all-white theme for the day, from the flowers to the guest’s attire. For their ceremony, they chose location that offered stunning views of the sea and the dinner celebration was held next to the seaside infinity pool. Before exchanging vows, David’s aunt read the supreme court opinion authored by Justice Kennedy and the words had almost everyone crying happy tears.
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. It is so ordered.”
As the sun set over the sea, guests were ushered down to the pool in the bubble funicular and were greeted by synchronized swimmers and serenaded by a violinist playing while floating in a bubble in the pool. The incredible dinner was highlighted with speeches from those closest to Rade & David and the overwhelming love surrounding the couple was incredible to witness. The night ended with a pool party & dance party lasting into the wee hours of the morning. More weddings should end the party in the pool!!
