Taft Point, Yosemite National Park
Leora and Igal committed to showing their radiance and commitment by hiking to the Taft Point overlook carrying their wedding clothes and sharing intimate moments overlooking the Yosemite Valley floor. Even smaller than the intimate family ceremony they held and the total opposite of their 300-person bash, this moment demonstrated the understated elegance of two lovers at the top of the world together.
It was a pleasure capturing their stunning photos and putting together a video that showcased the transition from a glowing golden hour to a mysterious blue hour.

Miranda and Omar first reached out to me a few months before their wedding in some last minute planning (as most COVID weddings have been). Upon talking, Miranda shared that their original elopement was filmed on a GoPro, but halfway through it cut out, so they did not have the memories to look back on.
When she told me that story, I was more than honored to be there for them on their special day and to capture little clips of family heirlooms and first hugs after the ceremony was finished. Highlighting these moments were a special way to tie in the importance of their family in their lives.
I even surprised the two of them with some drone footage. A small thank you to Omar who serves our community as a firefighter.

Eileen and Phillip first reached out to me via Facebook, and we immediately clicked once they told me about their love story. We had a shared history with families going to the same high schools, love of boba, and a love for the city of San Francisco.
On their elopement day, we started out at SF City Hall for their ceremony. However, we did not stop there! We ended up exploring all over the city from Lands End to Legion of Honor to the Golden Gate Bridge. All landmarks of the the city that they first met.
