My Personal Blog

I’m not the most interesting person. When asked what I do for fun, I often have trouble coming up with an answer. My best friend is my dog, Twinkie, and I can’t imagine my life without her. She tries to talk to people because I constantly talk to her. I think Japanese ramen is absolutely fantastic. I’ll never turn down a red velvet cupcake. And kale chips beat potato chips anyday. I love foresty hikes more than walks along a beach. I'm not sure what else to say...

Twinkie is pretty much terrified of water, except for the small bowl of water she drinks from. Every time someone in the house showers or if it's her turn to shower, she crawls under the biggest bed in the house so no one can get to her. Normally during her potty breaks, she'll stay outside as long as she can, but if it's raining, she finds the closest plot of grass, does her business, and runs back to the door panicking and scratching at the door to open. It's pretty darn adorable how terrified she is of water, but I also wish she didn't see water as such a threat. Sometimes I wonder what happened in her puppy-hood (Canine Psychology 101 anyone?)

Anyhow, I bring that up because there's a rain storm in Northern California at the moment. Trying to take advantage of the small moments when there's no rain so Twinkie can go out. And also taking advantage of the few times I can dress her in her raincoat. Is that not one of the most adorable outfits for a dog?! I can hear the internets shaming me for dressing my dog up, and hey, I hear you -- I used to be adamantly against dog clothes. But Twinkie is such a herp derp so she basically doesn't even notice clothes on her. She just loves the extra attention she gets when she's in costume.

Forgive me for being terrible at keeping my blog updated regularly. Blogging used to be so fun for me and I've recently realized why it stopped being as enjoyable. So there will be a change, I promise! I also have a few weddings backed up that I need to post, so keep a look out for them soon!

Earlier this year, I second shot a wedding for Junshien International. This wedding took place in Novato at Stone Tree Golf Club, and it was absolutely gorgeous. You know a wedding is going to be fantastic when the bride chooses a sparkly pair of Jimmy Choo...

Golden retrievers are my weakness.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” — Marilyn Monroe

Photographed a wedding as a second shooter with Diane of Diane Angel Gomez Photography a while back and I'm so excited to share it! It was such an incredibly beautiful day at Parducci Wine Cellars with some of the most beautiful details I've ever seen. All images created in conjunction with Diane Angel Photography.
