Having a Microwedding during Covid? Let's get shooting!

You have an enormous variety of choices when it comes to photographers, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area.  So how am I different?  I am casual yet professional, friendly yet serious about the quality of my deliverables, and experienced yet open minded.    My pricing is transparent, without surprises or add-ons and I aim to over deliver every time. I take only one wedding client a month in order that I might give each client all of my attention. I also take your privacy very seriously.

Photography is one of the few lasting souvenirs you will have from your big day, but it is the last thing you should have to worry about during the hustle and bustle!  You should feel comfortable with your photographer's ability and reliability. My goal is to bring you joy, while creating a stress-free experience and relationship.

With over 20 years of experience, and a love of my work, I will help you have a worry-free day, a beautiful product to last for years to come, and all the attention you need before and after! 

I also believe you should like your photographer; so let's meet!  I want you to be excited!

Because many clients prefer to be involved in album design (or make their own), and because delivery dates for albums can vary widely from album producer to another, traditional albums are priced and delivered separately. 


I offer a custom-made, coffee table book for any shoot.  I can provide simple  guidance,  or design and produce the the whole book.  I am also more than happy to help find album providers and materials to fit any style and budget, and pass them along at no additional cost.

You spend hours thinking, supposing, and planning to make the moment you pop the question as memorable as possible- so don't forget the photographer! With a photographer nearby, hidden away, or sometimes mingling in plain view, you can capture the genuine surprise and emotion of your fiance/e- to- be in a tasteful, unobtrusive way. Then make an album or frame it as a gift...or use it for your wedding invitation.  In any case, it will be something truly special to have for years to come.


On-site shoot, typically 1-4  hour is $375 - $1,500    

  • Mix of color and black and white

  • Online proofing and image access

Destination Weddings

There are several advantages to hiring a photographer close to home for your wedding away:

  • you can choose the photographer of your dreams in person rather than using the choice of your venue,

  • you can meet in person to plan your event and establish a trusting relationship before the big day,

  • you can use your photographer for engagement photos,

  • you can have peace of mind about photography so you can enjoy your day

  • it will make also make viewing of your images and album creation much more convenient and fun once you are home from your trip!


Because Destination Services do require additional funds for airfare, accomodations, and transportation for Jody, and often require travel of three or more days, please call to schedule an appointment to discuss logistics and fees. Thank you!
