If you’ve been following me this past year you see that my work has shifted some- I was a photographer who specialized in weddings and couples for 8 years!!! But my life has changed a bit and i’m so excited that the focus of my work can change with it too. You’ve probably seen that i’ve been shooting less weddings and more families, and i’ve been loving it! I’m still a Livermore Photographer though, just focusing more on a different type of photography now!

I did get to shoot a handful of weddings in 2019, and they were all so lovely! Each was special and untraditional in its own way, and the brides and grooms were such a treat to get to know and work with! Although I plan on blogging a few full weddings, but I thought first I would share a few of my favorite images from all four of them here! 

The weddings I shot last year took me from Livermore to Pleasanton to Pescadero. They were all “local” and I didn’t do any business travel this past year for weddings. It was a lovely year to just settle in of sorts. We had left our apartment and had a short few months of transition until we found a darling little house to live in. I spent a lot of time focusing on my vision for my business and what I really wanted to shoot, not necessarily what I had always been doing.

2019 lead to a lot of opportunities to shoot more film at weddings. In the end I really loved how it turned out. I felt like at the beginning of the year I was still learning film some, but by the end of the year I was challenging myself to shoot situations on film where I would usually just shoot digital. Overall it was such a great year of change and growth, and challenge in the best possible way!

Anyways, without further ado- here are some of my favorite wedding detail images from 2019!
