I recently discovered this gem of a venue in Winters, CA and I managed to score a photography slot during their Spring Photographer’s Invitational. You may not expect it while you’re driving down the deserted country roads leading to it, but this is one of the most stunning locations to have a wedding/event in Northern California. Tucked away in the peaceful country side with a perfectly manicured garden and serene view, this spot is truly incredible. Had a picnic and a shoot with the girls and it was honestly one of the best ways to spend a Sunday! Definitely check it out if you’re in the market for a venue or maybe just pay it a visit for a mellow Sunday.

Excited for the spring weather to be in full swing so I can head to Napa for some much-needed wine-ing! Having spent much of my childhood exploring the small town of Calistoga with my parents, wineries feel like home (the love of wine probably contributes to this also…) In Napa, I can usually be found at V.Sattui winery having a picnic or at Domaine Carneros pretending I am fancy. I highly recommend seeing what Calistoga and St.Helena have to offer! They are small quaint towns with so much to offer. Spring is a great time to go because you can sit outside and have a picnic without baking.
Happy hump day! Here’s another shot from our post-park breakfast morning in New York. I am enamored with this city and it sure makes for a great backdrop! The weather was a sunny 65 degrees but note the snow on the ground, gotta love it.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with NYC. It has an energy and a spirit that few other cities do and remains my favorite even after having seen many parts of the world. I had the chance to take a very short trip this weekend and couldn’t say no! New discoveries this time around: Milk Bar a basic but delicious place for cereal milk ice cream and Mr. Purple for good city views.
24 hours were not enough, so who’s looking to be my travel partner? 😇
Had a great time shooting my friend Laura in Central Park this week! Her ballet/dance background added an extra fun element to our pictures. She’s a trooper for going along with my nutty ideas! 💕 more pics to come!
Greece has been on my mind a lot lately. This is a shot from Mykonos this past summer when I traveled Europe with my bff Bogdana. I miss the narrow walkways and the delicious food. I miss the sunshine and the beautiful men. I even miss staying up all night and being exhausted the next day (which says a lot, I love my sleep). Cannot wait for when I am back in this beautiful place, lounging with a kebab in one hand and a drink in the other.
A message to my true love: travel. This is perhaps one of my favorite pictures ever (do I say that often? Oops.) I have come to terms with my gypsy soul and its unquenchable thirst for exploring. I could have a lot more money in my savings account but I sure as hell wouldn’t be as happy. The world feels like a source of endless possibilities waiting to be explored. So this Valentines Day I am happy to be taking yet another trip and sharing the holiday with one of the cities I love most! Keep posted for which one it is, hehe.
Captured this simple shot near the AirBnb we stayed in, in the Nob Hill area of San Francisco. It was on the cutest street with a Trader Joes on the corner, talk about the dream home for D. The iconic SF architecture provided such a great backdrop for these pictures, I just couldn’t resist taking the ol’ Canon out. The clean colors and simplicity of it bring me so much joy.
I had always heard about Abbot Kinney in La but had never gone until recently and let me tell ya, it was just as hip as they say. All kinds of Vegan restaurants and expensive boutiques, everything you’d expect in LA. But I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day here and captured some great sights like this mobile flower shop! Had brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter and it was AMAZING. Would recommend 10/10 especially for those of you that are lactose intolerant because they offer all dairy free 🙂
Another day, another great shot of Shanni. Spent the weekend in San Francisco exploring/getting into shenanigans with my bff and took some amazing pictures along the way. This particular one is in the Mission District, which I had not really explored before. There were so many beautiful classing SF homes and a rich culture. We stumbled upon this small Mexican pastry shop and got to enjoy freshly baked goodies that were incredible. My favorite travel adventures are the ones that you happen upon by chance 🙂
