It's my week with the Knot!

The fabulous wedding of Alli and Jeff has been chosen as a real wedding feature for the The Knot magazine. Not just the Northern California edition but nationwide! Very cool! What makes this even more cool is that Alli's sister Carrie and her husband Tony will be featured at the same time in the Northern California publication. Both magazines will come out around January of next year. I was so happy to be a part of each of their spectacular weddings. They were both planned by their older sister Amy of Amy Paris Designs. You rock Paris sisters!

The Knot Style Book and I'm included!

The Knot has chosen one of my images to be included in their upcoming The Knot's Guide to Wedding Style. The image will be included in the chapter on photography and will be in bookstores sometime in 2009. This is my first time being published in a book and it's very exciting!! The image is from the wonderful wedding of Kim and Sean last year at the Carneros Inn. What a gorgeous place to get married!!

Amy & Chris

Amy & Chris are getting married at the new Cavallo Point in Sausalito. What an amazing location! To get a feel of the new place we did our engagement session there. I loved the diversity of the area. We had a great bridge view along with some very cool textured buildings, one of my absolute favorite types of backgrounds. I can't wait for their wedding in October. It will be planned by the very fabulous Nicole D'Ambra.

The one and only. . . .

. . . . web designer! Meet Deb. She's the most amazing, talented, creative and just plain cool web designer out there. She designed my first website and we're currently working on my new site. I'm sad to say I'm definitely the hold up. Who knew gathering content would be so hard in the middle of wedding season?? Check back soon for my new and improved dstripe designed site.

She was in need of a headshot for her new website and I had so much fun roaming SF with her to find the perfect look for her new photo. Check out her new site. It will blow you away!!

Deb, you rock!!

And that's just plain silly. . . .

Nenette and Halid

I had so much fun with Nenette and Halid last week for their engagement session. After walking around the mission a little bit we headed over to the SOMA area. The Contemporary Jewish Museum is open now which lent itself as a great background for some of the photos. I loved the look of having a very new contemporary building set in place next to some old historic looking buildings. We then headed over to The Phoenix Hotel. If you've never been there before, it's worth a trip. What a cool old school place. There were so many fun and interesting spots to photograph!

What a great day! I can't wait for their wedding!

Geri & Jeff - Greens Restaurant

Geri and Jeff are two of the coolest people I've met. They were both really down to earth and seemed to be enjoying every minute of the day. We met before the ceremony for some photos at Lands End. Unfortunately it was a typical summer day in San Francisco, foggy! So we didn't get to see the bridge but I think the photos are still great. Very mysterious with all that fog!

Alli & Jeff - Clift Hotel

What a stunning day! Alli and Jeff were married at the gorgeous Clift Hotel in San Francisco. It was a fun wedding for me as I was working yet again with the fabulous Paris sisters! I photographed Carrie's wedding back in March at Thomas Fogarty and have worked with their sister Amy of Paris Designs on numerous weddings. Alli was looking drop dead gorgeous in her wedding day finery and Jeff wasn't bad either :) They make the perfect couple! I loved the elegant city feel to the entire day.

Alli and Jeff, you rock! Thanks for having me share such a great day with you and your families!
