2017 was a strange year. The overall level of uncertainty seemed unusually high. There were fires and floods in California, and wacky politics everywhere. As crazy as last year felt, when I look back at the people I worked with and the way they gracefully danced with uncertainty, I feel nothing but love. After many years of shooting weddings and working with couples and their friends and families, I am still stoked about what I do. Here are 100 images from last year.

The Pelican Inn is one of those places that is steeped in nostalgic memories. Many years ago I went on an all day adventure with a friend. We were on my motorcycle, and did not end up heading home until after dark. The fog was thick as we rode home from Stinson Beach, and we were unprepared for the cold damp ride. We stopped at the Pelican Inn and warmed ourselves by the fire, soaking up the smell of good food, burning candles, and wood fire before riding the rest of the way home. It is no surprise that people feel a connection with this charming place. Sierra and Michael are just about the sweetest and most good natured people around. Their wedding day at the Pelican Inn was kissed with joy.
Fancy food, a beautiful location, nice clothes, great music, yummy drink, and pretty details certainly make for a good looking wedding. Grace and Carl’s wedding at Headlands Center for the Arts had all those things and more, but most importantly, they had great people at their celebration. Inviting fun loving folks to your wedding is really the best way to insure a fun party and great memories. Grace wore a jump suit instead of a dress. Their friend Bri from Lover Bee Botany did the fun flower/ foliage arrangements. I set up a self serve photo studio for guests. The Dexter Lake Club Band flew out from New York and rocked the dance party. At the end of the night Gillibus brought in a fleet of tricked out party busses to bring guests to the after party. This was an epic event with no lack of great people.
