    Schroeder Family | Family Portraits | Old Borges Ranch, Walnut Creek, CA

    I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. The absolute best part about photography is the friendships and relationships I’ve began, built, or rekindled. Lauren and I were great friends at USD during college. She and Kam were engaged and married pretty soon after graduation and moved back to their hometown of Alamo/Walnut Creek to start their family. Their wedding was the last time I saw either of them, if you can believe it. After moving up to San Francisco, Lauren was one of the first people I thought about that I couldn’t wait to see and catch up with. They then asked me to do their family photos for their Christmas card, and I couldn’t wait to meet their THREE adorable boys. As you can see, they sure have their hands full, but are the luckiest parents in the world. These kiddos could not be any cuter, and I am so happy to finally be within driving distance to see all five of them!

    The End of 2013

    As we enter the new year, I’m really looking forward to the new exciting changes for my company, with a focus on Senior Portraits. The photos to follow are what I have been up to since my mid-year review in August (minus senior portraits). I wish you all a healthy and wonderful new year! 2013 is going to be a hard one to beat!

    I can’t believe it’s already mid-wedding season and what is even crazier… Silas and I are getting married in less than 2 weeks!!! I took off the entire month of August from shooting to focus on our wedding and honeymoon (Thailand!!!) so I have just a few moments before finishing up the final details for our wedding to post an update on all of the beautiful weddings, engagements, portrait sessions, etc. that I’ve done in the past 6 months in 2013. I also had 3 magazine features this year, one in Exquisite Weddings / The Bride Suite, one in San Diego Style Weddings and one in Le Magnifique Blog!

  • Trash the Dress

    Kristin + Justin | Trash the Dress | Palm Beach, Aruba

    I have clients ask me all the time why anyone would ever “trash” their wedding dress because it seems totally insane. I usually explain how “trash the dress” sessions do not necessarily mean ruining the wedding dress, it just simply means taking photos at a location that you weren’t able to go to on your wedding day. Plus, it gives you an excuse to wear your dress again! The level of “trashing” is completely up to the bride.

    Meet Kristin. Her dress was in shreds… literally… and she wore it jumping off a pirate ship.
