Half Moon Bay has this alcove with a stretch of sand, dramatic waves and a bluff overlooking the ocean.  It’s a special place that has different meaning for different people. For Christina and Kevin, this location was the site of one of their romantic dates, playing hookie from work to have some chowder and fly kites along this beach years ago.   We revisited this site as the backdrop for their engagement photoshoot and hat was supposed to be a shoot to celebrate the couple, turned into the most adorable little family shoot for Christina, Kevin and Cosmo too!  I can’t wait to photograph their big day at Ruby Hill Country Club later this Fall!

When you show up to a client’s wedding and the bride’s dress makes you speechless, you know you’re in for a visual treat.  Jessica and Matt are one of the sweetest couples I’ve met and it was such a pleasure documenting their big day and all the beautiful details that went into the wedding.  Even more rewarding was that their gorgeous wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty.  Click here to see the full Style Me Pretty feature and here for the original blog post.

Recent addition to the Blu Bungalow group, Every Elegant Detail is a full service wedding planning and design company.  I had the pleasure of photographing Janece and Lori of Every Elegant Detail around Union Street for some updates to their profile photos.  Read on, meet the ladies and get to know their event planning company.

This was my 4th year attending WPPI and I must say this year was by far my favorite.  I noticed attendance was lower than previous years but this was purely an observation based on how much shorter the lines were at Starbucks and the Food Courts.  I didn’t have to wrestle the crowds on the trade show floor or stand in long pre-boarding lines for the classes like last year.  I had a chance to thoroughly review products for my clients (new albums, new designs, new products for editing) and even attended some inspirational/motivational classes.  Not only did I meet new photographers but I also had more time to bond and get to know vendors/photographers who used to be just acquaintances.  Instead of just hugs and hellos in passing, I bonded over meals, shared excitement over winning the JACKPOT, and ending the night with sweet desserts and even dancing.  Lots of memories were made and shared and I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings for all of us.  Here are some photos taken with my iPhone and Lumix LX7.  Enjoy!

One of my proud moments was seeing my clients’ engagement session printed on sample albums at the conference.  =)
