Rani + Ryan

So many things I love about this: Rani is one of my dearest friends who I've known since my very first day in college. (She loved me through my flare jeans and flip flop phase, and I am forever grateful.) I had the privilege of being a guest at Rani + Ryan's Footloose-inspired, glitter-infused wedding, and we did a day-after shoot around San Francisco to commemorate all the celebrating. Hashtag how did I get so lucky.

Emma // Wool and the Gang

I recently got to team up with the very talented Emma, who conveniently happens to be one of my favorite people in the world. Emma knitted an incredible piece through Wool and the Gang, and we took some photos in her San Francisco studio to show the sweater off in all it's Icelandic glory. (My skill level doesn't extend beyond sewing  on buttons, so I am in awe.) You can read her post on Emmadime, and see our feature on Wool and the Gang here!

Nelly + Michael: Road Trip Engagement

Nelly and Michael are the kind of humans you want at your birthday party, your dinner party, your weeknight cereal dinner- basically anytime you're doing anything. They are full of life, full of joy, and full of love for each other- and it just spills over to everyone around them. Nelly and Michael are both fishermen in Alaska, and they drove their VW camper van to San Francisco where we met for a weekend of playing and shooting their engagement photos along the coast. (Side note: Nelly made that flower crown. Talent show material.) This shoot is one of the reasons I love my work. And why it hardly feels like work at all.
