Destination Riviera Maya Wedding

Sun, beach, waves, and just a little bit of rain, all made for a remarkable wedding celebration for Marina & Gregory. It was a beautiful destination wedding held at the Fairmont Mayakoba and we had a blast working with Fer Juaristi and Ed Peers who captured the photos – check out the feature on JuneBugWeddings.

Romance in the Alps

Few places leave you speechless, like the Swiss Alps. Laura and Mark chose to host their wedding celebration in the beautiful town of Arosa, Switzerland. Arosa boasts 360 degree views of amazing snow-capped mountains, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. With a tremendous love for the outdoors and fun, Laura and Mark invited their close family and friends to enjoy a weekend of skiing and sledging; along with Swiss Fondu and an al fresco lunch on the slopes. Their wedding day was adorned with tradition; including a horse drawn sleigh, vintage carousel rides for their guests, and Swiss longhorns announcing the couple’s arrival for drinks reception. Their wedding celebration concluded with an evening of live music and dancing until the early morning.

Helen & Jason’s wedding was full of soft and romantic personal touches, culminating in their wedding ceremony and reception overlooking the Deep Water Bay in Hong Kong. It was such an honor to produce their wedding film at the stunning Hong Kong Country Club.

Croquet at Meadowood

Sarah & Brad had the wonderful idea to welcome their guests and start off their wedding with a croquet themed dinner party. Close friends and family were greeted with drinks and a signature pair of shoes, along with private lessons on a proper game of croquet. It was an evening full of fun and laughs and was the perfect start to the weekend.

Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse Wedding

Set in what has to be one of the most idyllic Southern Californian locations, Kirsten & Tim’s Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse Wedding took place atop the rolling hills of Santa Ynez Valley wine country; their wedding was full of classic rustic, elements and personal touches like a six layer cheese cake. Santa Ynez has some of the most beautiful locations and I’m always so blessed to shoot in such beautiful scenery.

A Journey Through Hong Kong

On a recent trip to Hong Kong, we met up with Charo & Shaaz, and had the opportunity to spend sometime time with them as they explored Hong Kong by land and sea; from the antique markets, to an abandoned fort, to the peak overlooking the city of Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor, and all this was followed by the breathtaking views of the Hong Kong skyline, as only can be seen from a boat. It was a remarkable adventure and  I cannot wait to make it back to that amazing city.

Chic Sunstone Villa Wedding

The California sunlight in the late summer – early fall, is one of my all time favorite things and it really comes through in Brianne & Brien’s wedding film. The sunlight’s soft warmth wraps around everything. It was the perfect compliment to the warm and subtle textures incorporated throughout their wedding day, all beautifully put together by Alexandra Kolendrianos with floral design by Mindy Rice. Not to mention, Brianne’s beautiful gown and all the fine details in her bridesmaid’s gowns, truly remarkable. Spellcaster Maxim

Escape to Napa

Very few places are as well known as Napa Valley and for good reason, its reputation proceeds it as being a purveyor of Californian lifestyle – food, sun, wine, and relaxation abound. Sarah and Brad invited us to capture their beautiful napa wedding weekend and I’m so excited to share this small preview from their very intimate wedding soiree. More to come soon…

Lakeside Wedding in Switzerland

We had the immense honor of producing Geraldine & Felix’s wedding film in the beautiful town of Ascona, Switzerland; a place I hope I can revisit often. I could go on and on about the detail and rich history of the church in which they said their wedding vows and the beauty and character of the island villa they partied at all night long, but I think it’s better said with images than words, so I’ll stop here :)
