Guys, there are so many things to fight for in this world. Where and how do we put our efforts, our love and our support to everything that's so important to us? Puerto Rico, Houston, Mexico, Civil the Northern California fires. These fires have really hit home with my boyfriend; that's his hometown, where his heart is rooted. He has friends and family who have been directly effected, who have lost their homes and are completely displaced or are at the mercy of the winds and hoping for the best. I've seen a few photographers in my network doing fundraisers with their print sales. So I'm joining the efforts. 100 PERCENT of the print sales from this gallery will go directly to the Redwood Credit Union Fire Relief Fund. Prints are just $20. You get a little piece of pretty on your walls and it's a quick 5 minute chance to help our fellow human beings are in desperate need of relief. It's small, but it's something.

Though not all images in the gallery feature SF/the Bay, these are images of places Darren and I have traveled together that are of great significance to us; places and moments together that are close to our hearts. Perhaps the gallery features an image of a place you've been but never printed that photo that's on your phone? Here's your chance, friends!

Please share this link and donate to the efforts! Boom. xoxo -amy. 


Annie+Justin's Love Story Session

Annie+Justin were engaged in Capri to be exact....when the sun was setting...on a sailboat. Ugh, Justin. Nice work. ; ) I am so glad that I found these two cuties and was able to take their portraits. Annie is simply gorgeous and so easy to photograph and they weren't shy to hop in a row boat at an attempt to pay tribute to Justin's romantic proposal. South Lake Union may not quite be Capri, but hey. Bobbing up and down, getting trapped in between a few larger boats and getting hollered at by the Center for Wooden Boat staff was worth every second with them! Thank you so much, Annie+Justin! Congrats, Lovelies! xoxo

-xoxo amy.

Alyssa+Mike | Farm Kitchen Wedding in Poulsbo, WA

This couple! I just have so much adoration for Alyssa+Mike. They are so kind, love themselves some good food and drink and culture. I met A+M at Matt+Lilly's wedding in Vermont (which was featured on Rock N Roll Bride! Woohoo!) and I was so excited when they asked me to be part of their day, too! Their Farm Kitchen wedding in Poulsbo was so so so stellar and these two can't hide how into each other they are.

These guys did it right and I'm so thankful to have been part of their incredible day! We just also just delivered their wedding album and it was such a fun album to design!

Congrats, Alyssa+Mike!

Kristen+Nate's Swan Trail Farms Wedding

This incredible couple is out adventuring across the pond right now celebrating their One Year Anniversary. So it's the perfect time to share their beautiful wedding on the blog today.
