sacramento, bay area, & beyond


I had the pleasure of meeting Mary through her younger sister who I went to high school and college with. If there’s one thing I know about the Sampson women, they’re full of life, joy, and laughter. That rang true for Mary’s engagement photography session with her fiancé Josh. It made me SO excited to shoot their wedding this December! For their Danville engagement, we started our day outside of St. Isidore’s Chapel where they’ll be saying their vows this December and continued onto Oak Park where their reception will be held at the park clubhouse. It was so fun to explore both of the locations we’ll be at on their wedding day at their engagement session! As I too grew up in Danville, California, it’s always a treat to go back!

Mary and Josh, I can’t wait to celebrate your nuptials this winter in my hometown of Danville, California. Thank you for inviting me back to a place with so many wonderful memories for your special day. I can’t wait to see you two as a stunning bride and groom!
