The Rupperts in Seattle | San Francisco Bay Area Family Photographer

My final class/session at Click Away in Seattle was a second run of The Playful Portrait Session. Teaching others how to walk into a family session and make it not only stress free, but FUN, for the clients is one of my favorite things. We chat like friends, tell jokes with the kids, and overall just have a great time which results in beautifully fun, playful photos!

This family is super special to me - Brad actually used to be my husband's boss and was the one who got us to move to Seattle in 2012! In the 3 years that we were there we spent a ton of time together with our families, and Charlie, their youngest, was due the same day as my daughter Sloane! Christy and I were literally due date buddies which was fun since we literally lived down the street from one another :)

Tova & Tyler in Seattle | San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to head to Seattle, WA to teach 4 completely full classes at the Click Away conference. Two of my classes were styled wedding shoots, the first of which was with Tyler and Tova. If you recognize Tova it's because she actually modeled for a styled shoot that I did with BHLDN in Seattle last year! This year she brought along her boyfriend Tyler and along with 25 other photographers we shot in a few of Seattle's most iconic locations.

This is just a quick sneak peek of the beautiful, intimate, 23 person wedding I shot at San Francisco City Hall earlier in October! I cannot wait to blog more <3 This place is a wedding photographer's dream and I felt like I was back in Europe, not the heart of San Francisco!
