the best job…

IMG_3837Last month I got to work at two weddings in the Bay Area with the best caterers. My main job once dinner rolled around was serving tables, but before that time, I was asked to photograph appetizers and as many other dishes as possible. I felt super honored to be asked to do that, and prayed for good lighting and good photos :) In the end, I was pleased and Gemma & Murray were pleased, plus I had a ton of fun.

P.S. Those Mango Panna Cottas pictured above? Sometimes I dream about them. Continue reading

hearst memorial mining

hearst memorial miningYesterday was super great. In the morning, I got to meet up with my friend Natasha for coffee and photos. Then in the afternoon, Micah and I headed into the city for a handful of hours.

IMG_3011Two Saturdays ago Meegan and I ventured out of town for the whole day and went to an art museum.

It’s nice to have a friend who also occasionally feels the need to get out of this town and see something new and different.

Anyways, we were both visiting this particular museum for the first time, and we loved it. Continue reading

shadows on the tennis court

tennis01Yesterday I convinced my brother to go play tennis with me because it was such a beautiful day and I’ve been dying for a chance to play. The public court we use gets full sun, and I found myself admiring the dramatic shadows as we played. So when we finished up I grabbed my iPhone and took a few snapshots. Continue reading

pretty packaging

IMG_1360-1Do you ever buy something strictly based on how it’s packaged? A book because of its cover, a candle because of its jar, or chocolate because of its wrapper?

While I didn’t purchase this chocolate only because it has the prettiest packaging in all of the land (the logo! the patterns! the colors!), I will readily say that that factor played a big part in the final decision.
