My favorite thing is when I get to shoot my family and friends. I first met Roberta the first day I opened my studio in Sayulita, since she worked in the shop right next door to me! She is now one of my closest friends and I love getting to photograph her and her family 🙂 I have done her pregnancy photos, newborn, and now the 6 month photo session. Now her little girl will be in front of my lens forever!
Love you guys (…even you Stephane)

This awesome couple knew how to celebrate 25 years of wedded bliss the best way, at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita, Mexico!
For their anniversary they left kids behind, and flew to Mexico with their closest friends to have an awesome party and vacation.
This was such a fun and energetic group, I could see the love right away why they have all been such great friends for so long.
Here’s to the next 25!!

Mallory & Martino decided to host a Villa Amor wedding in Sayulita, Mexico to celebrate with their friends and family with a festive destination wedding, after their earlier intimate wedding ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall.
The wedding was planned by the always awesome team of Sayulita Weddings by Karen Ruezga .
The day started with the girls getting beautified by Rebecca from Bliss Salon. I then met up with the boys who looked very cool in their tropical printed shirts.
The ceremony was on the patio of the Grand Villa overlooking the whole town of Sayulita and the ocean, and it was amazing! The flowers and decor at the reception were bright and vibrant and the bride and groom got the party started right by bringing in a couple salsa dancers to give so lessons on how to dance all night long!
It was an amazing day and night, and we even continued the fun with a trash the dress session a couple days later where we roamed around town capturing the all the colors and textures that make Sayulita and Villa Amor so magical.
Congratulations Mallory & Martino!!

Before heading down to Mexico for their destination wedding, Mallory & Martino and their closest family and friends headed to beautiful city hall in San Francisco to make it official!! City hall is one of my favorite places to shoot, and it was made even better with this fantastic couple.
Congrats Mallory & Martino!! Next up, tequila and waves!!
Last weekend Ray & her husband Mindaugas and their family and long time friends came to Sayulita for a vacation and to do a vow renewal! After 18 years and 5 boys, they wanted to celebrate their love 🙂 We went to a beautiful private beach, and found an awesome spot with their feet in the water to come together. They were an amazing group and I was thrilled to be able to capture the love!!
The area around Cancun Mexico is known for its beautiful cenotes, which are beautiful cave like fresh water pools. So what better spot to do an awesome trash the dress shoot! Abby & Jeff were super brave and we got some amazing shots with them fully immersed in the very cold water! LOL
I met Abby & Jeff when they came to Punta Mita for a vacation last year and had me do their engagement photos. We hit it off and I was so excited to travel to Cancun Mexico to shoot their awesome destination wedding at the beautiful Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort. Since I mostly shoot on the west coast of Mexico, it was a treat to head to the beautiful Caribbean side of the country. I had a great time getting to know all their friends and family, and despite the weather saying it was supposed to rain every day, we had perfect weather! The wedding day was beautiful, the bride was stunning, and the party went on late into the night. We also did a very cool trash the dress shoot the next day, so stay tuned for those photos!
Congrats Abby & Jeff 🙂
Last month was time for Alicia & Emmanuel to head down to Sayulita, Mexico for their destination wedding!
Alicia looked absolutely stunning in her custom wedding dress, and Emmanuel was very handsome in his cool blue suit.
The day was absolutely perfect, from the super-cute flower girls to the chandelier hanging from the arch during the ceremony.
The wedding was at the beautiful Don Pedros Palapa, the perfect destination wedding venue, and was planned and designed by the always amazing Yazmin from Sea of Dreams Weddings
Congrats Alicia & Emmanuel!!
Amy & Chris traveled to Mexico with their closest friends and family to celebrate their wedding. Family was definitely a big part of the day as Chris’s sister was the officiant and his beautiful daughters were the bridesmaids. They had a gorgeous ceremony right on the beach, a prefect way to get your feet in the sand! Then on to Don Pedros for the party!
Congrats Amy & Chris!!
Megan and Adam came down to Sayulita earlier this year to host an amazing celebration of their wedding with their closest friends and family. The wedding was at the spectacular Palapa Ganesh, which is an incredible ocean front home that really shows off the beauty of the area. I love how relaxed and intimate their beach ceremony was, with people longing on pillows and low chairs, and the party rocked with a live band. The always fabulous Yazmin of Sea of Dreams Weddings pulled the whole event together, and the day couldn’t have gone better.
Congrats Megan & Adam!!
