Saint Vincent School for Boys Engagement :: Katie + Rob

Its a common story tale. When two people meet, sometimes its not the right time. And years later they reconnect and a flame ignites……Katie & Rob have a similar story. The two have known each other for over seven years and went out on a few dates, but decided to go separate ways. Years later, the two reconnected and it was instant. Rob fell in love with Katie and Katie fell in love with Rob. And in a few short days, the two will be sharing their vows with one another, witnessed by their close friends & family and will finally call each other husband and wife.:)

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the two on a lovely afternoon a few weeks ago. We met at Saint Vincent School for Boys, where the lighting is always so pretty and the atmosphere is fresh. And it was a perfect location picked by the couple.

Katie & Rob, I am in absolute awe of the love the two of you share. I cannot wait to capture your wedding and I hope you two have some time to relax before the big day. Thank you for spending the afternoon with me and looking forward to it! XO Jihan

Calistoga Wedding :: Blaire + Tamer

Whenever I document special moments for my family, it brings me such genuine warmth. About a month ago, I had the honor of photographing Blaire & Tamer’s wedding in Calistoga {Blaire is cousin’s with husband, Joe). The lighting & details were beautiful, the energy of the couple’s family & friends was incredible and there wasn’t a single moment without laughter….it was truly a PERFECT day! And while I did my best to narrow the images down to describe the day, it was DEFINITELY a challenge.

Blaire & Tamer, your wedding was incredible! You two are SO loved by everyone who traveled near & far to celebrate the two of you and the day was nothing short from perfect! Thank you for having capture the day and enjoy your lifetime of happiness! xoxo Jihan

Here’s are some favorites from Blaire & Tamer’s wedding:

Sonoma County Engagement {Crane Canyon} :: Caitlin + Wade

Photographing couples prior to their wedding day is always an enjoyable time for me. It gives me a chance to get know them as couple and learn more about their wedding. And the best part is when we are blessed with pretty lighting and perfect weather!!

I recently photographed Caitlin & Wade, who are getting married in 2014. Both are super sweet and the camera absolutely loves them! We were lucky to have photographed during an incredible evening and I can’t wait for the big day!

Here are some favorites from their engagement session! Enjoy!! {Makeup by Raina Rombeiro}

Palm Event Center Wedding :: Gita + Harris

The energy was contagious! There wasn’t a SINGLE moment where you couldn’t feel the excitement throughout the day. The details were sparkling, the guests were full of incredible energy and the bride & groom were full of smiles from beginning and beyond the end. Gita & Harris’ wedding was one of the most amazing wedding’s I’ve photographed to date…….simply because of their genuine hearts and sweet personalities.

The two exchanged vows a few weeks ago at the Palm Event Center in Livermore, CA. The two opted for a first look and later changed out of their traditional ceremony outfits into gorgeous modern attire….and it was a perfect way to get the party started!!

Gita & Harris, What an incredible day! Thank you for opening up your hearts and sharing the most important day of your life with me. It truly was an amazing experience for me and having me document your wedding day. xoxoxo Jihan

Saint Vincent School for Boys Wedding {Bridal Shoot} :: Isabel + Nick


After the long anticipation of the wedding, the time finally came around. In July, Isabel & Nick exchanged vows in front of family & friends in Nicaragua; and while I was saddened by the fact I couldn’t attend, my frown was turned upside-down when I had the opportunity to photograph these two last week! I’ve photographed several sentimental moments in their lives…….Expecting little Roman, Roman’s newborn & one year photos and now, the seal of the family when Mommy & Daddy said “I do.”

Izzy & Nicholas…..I’m SO grateful to be a part of your lives. I’ve cherished each and every session I’ve spent with you and I’m truly honored to have captured those moments for you. Thank you for always having trust and faith in me and most importantly, for being so supportive for my love for photography. Love you both SO much and a big congrats again!!! xoxo Jihan

Here are some favorites from the afternoon….and it began with this cutie pie….well, at least while it lasted. 😉 Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICK!!!!!

Happy Friday! ~Jihan
