I had an amazing day documenting some of my closest friends, and fellow photographers, Tim and Jess. Your friendship is a blessing!
A huge thank you to Sophia Park of SPark Event Consulting, who helped me connect with Joseph and Woosun! I couldn’t have done it without you!

Late last year Donal Doherty, an awesome photographer in Ireland, contacted me to set up a session of himself and the beautiful Margaret. Little did she know, Donal would be proposing the evening of the shoot. Together Donal and I picked the location, the talented Jace Brooklyn to provide a sweet serenade, the perfect makeup and hair work of Amy Clark and the man Jacob Nichols to film the whole day. Throughout the day I knew Donal would be nervous, but as the evening approached, a calming overcame the land for the most beautiful proposal, atop the hills of Malibu.
While I knew Donal briefly from industry conventions, it was such a blessing and honor getting to know both him and Margaret, and celebrating their engagement at WPPI. They’re both such uplifting and beautiful people, who are such a blast to work with. Thank you Donal and Margaret for your friendship and everlasting laughter and love!
Kirsten and Daryl are such a great example of why I document weddings. The best possible outcome after a wedding has passed is to become friends. And how they’ve blessed me! I first documented their engagement session at Disneyland about a year ago (here), and followed up with their beautiful wedding in Tahoe last year (here). Each time we’ve re-connected it’s been such a fun time.
This time around I was blessed to document their 1 year anniversary in San Francisco. Though it was a rainy day, we sure did have fun and grubbed on some epic food. In short, do not get “The Mighty Moose” from Jack’s. Unless you have a bottomless stomach, you will be defeated.
Here’s a few favorites from our time with them just a few weeks ago!
