Cass House Cayucos | Wine + Dine Event


YOU GUYS. This event was my actual dream. After photographing Adam + Devin's wedding here in March, The Cass House invited me back to photograph their first Winemaker's dinner. Their head chef, Cory, partnered with the winemaker at Aaron Wines to create the most perfect menu. savory sourdough donut balls dusted with onion powder and served over Fondue.... braised beef that melted in your mouth, served over the most perfectly creamy mashed potatoes... my mouth is watering just thinking about it. If you're ever in Cayucos, or anywhere near SLO county, you have got to head over to The Cass House and enjoy a meal at their restaurant or bakery. Big thanks to their Senior Coordinator, Jenna, who coordinated this perfect event.

Oakland Home Session | Andria Leigh Events


This babe is one talented wedding planner with gorgeous taste and an equally gorgeous home up in the Oakland Hills, so when Andria asked me to do a home session for her I was thrilled! I met Andria about a year and half ago when one of her clients hired me to photograph their wedding and it's been such a fun time getting to know her! I absolutely love getting to make friends in the wedding industry, it makes working them that much more special! Can't wait to share the photos from the wedding Andria and I just worked together but in the meantime, enjoy these beauties and definitely check her out if you're looking for a wedding planner!

Carmel Family Picnic | The Melendrez'

If you haven't noticed, I don't do family photos very often. When kiddos start crying + running away from me, I start panicking + want to cry with them because their parents probably think I'm terrible with children (when in reality they probably are mad at their kids + not even noticing me panicking)... but when Matt asked if I would photograph a family picnic, it was a no brainer! Matt, who you might recognize from this shoot, has felt like family to me since the day I met him so it was a real treasure to meet the people that he loves so dearly + cry laughing for hours because they are literally the funniest group of humans around. His older sister, Venessa, coordinated this adorable Christmas styled picnic with warm blankets, wine (for the adults) + donuts for all. It was an afternoon filled with joy, laughter, delicious snacks, + all. the. snuggles. Love this family + cannot wait to see them all again at Matt + Lindsey's wedding!
