Engagement Portraits on Baker Beach in San Francisco, CA. August 2017Read More
There are some weddings that change you, in a way, or remind you of parts of yourself that are your best parts, and that is the major draw for myself in shooting weddings. This wedding reminded me of the beauty of Paul Simon Graceland, being barefoot is underrated, and that food served in courses over the night with drinks and friends is really one of the most joyous things around. I feel like the Nora Ephron inside of me was bright and abundant. I never want to forget this wedding party.

and now for the epic dinner party to end all other dinner parties!
Perfect way to end a dual wedding with a feast & friends. Thank you Asher & Isa!
Asher & Isa hired me in March to cover 2 weddings: the first for family in Oakland, and the second for friends in Tomales, California. This first wedding was filled with family, and close friends, a catered taco truck, flowers, and bright colors. It was incredible to see all of the families together, giving their love to these two dynamic individuals.
Thank you A & I - it was a pleasure!Read More
I was asked to cover a unique assignment: the releasing of doves to commemorate this families grandmothers birthday. Honestly I'd never covered a dove release, but was up for the challenge. The entire experience ended up being so positive, and moving. I was swallowing tears as I snapped pictures, and feel like I've made new friends. Thank you for asking me to capture your family at the Golden Gate Bridge this July. It was an honor!Read More
This is my third shoot for Marin Ventures. They hire me annually to cover events, and this year added their summer picnic to the schedule. It was a moving event, filled with laughter, and so much love. What a special place that exists for those who need it. There was live music, games, food, and the staff was so happy and generous.Read More
When Tereza & Cody suggested this year's family portrait session be held on Mt. Tam, I was a little apprehensive because of tourists, and I know their girls are still small (which basically means, short attentions for photos!), but Nick and I managed to find our our little corner of the Matt Davis Trail, next to the Pantoll trail, that was perfectly suited for families with small children. What we ended up capturing was life during this time when not everyone wants to smile, or even get their picture taken. I want T & C to look back a these photos and remember this moment in time with a feeling of fondness. Parenthood can be busy, but its so so so worth it!Read More
Marin Civic Center Wedding in June, by Anise LeAnn PhotographyRead More
What an absolute TREAT it was to visit the Yuba River just north of Nevada City, California. I was completely blown away at the COLOR, and the ROCKS! Although we could not really swim in the river, we did manage to find a spot in between the rocks at Hoyts Crossing, to relax in the river, while Harold swam back & forth between on, while on leash. I would like to explore this area of California even further, to find the perfect swimming hole, where the pup can be offleash.Read More

It was a PLEASURE to get to photograph Katie & Tristan on their wedding. We met at Stinson Beach, California for the ceremony, and then retreated to the Tiburon Lodge in Tiburon, California for the reception. It was a gorgeous wedding, with a gorgeous bride! Thank you Katie for connecting with me, and here's to a lifetime of love!Read More
Nick had a hankering for Crawfish, so after some investigation, was told to head across the Mississippi River into Louisiana to a place called C&M Crawfish. I tried one, but there was no chance in hell that I was going to tear those things apart.... yuck! I stuck to shrimp & corn. 2lbs of crawdads later, Nick was satisfied, and content.Read More
Kate & Mark get marrIed at The Elms, in Natchez. It was an elegant and absolutely fun wedding. The day started with a slight drizzle of rain, but by time the ceremony started, the clouds had parted, and the sun broke through. By the end of the wedding, after the cake, and during the dance-off, the clouds gathered once more for a dramatic thunderstorm. One guest commented "Thunder & lightning are Gods Fireworks" (or something along those lines!). It was the most romantic of weekends. Congratulations Kate & Mark!Read More
