Mount Tamalpais State Park Engagements | Eunice & CY

Mount Tamalpais State Park Engagement

My first time photographing around Mount Tamalpais State Park was amazing. I can’t thank Eunice and CY enough for inviting me out to experience more gems around the bay area. Being secluded on a mountaintop surrounded by vast hillside and damp mossy woods while still spotting downtown San Francisco and ocean views was an experience.

What makes these engagements truly beautiful though are Eunice and CY and the energy they brought with them. Going into the session they had a good idea of what they wanted which we communicated beforehand so we could simply show up, experience our environment, and create. We spotted deer, embraced a few silly moments here and there, and photographed well into sunset when fog rose and rain fell. They allowed themselves to feel vulnerable and interact with little guidance, while also taking my direction for any and all ideas. I can’t thank them enough for the energy and trust they brought to these engagements.

Special thanks to Eunice and CY for having me out! San Francisco is one of my favorite cities to visit and I love every opportunity to visit. Check out my travel dates and reach out if you’re in the bay area.

River Bottoms Ranch Wedding | Katya and Bart

River Bottoms Ranch Wedding by Elisha Braithwaite Photography

Katy and Bart’s River Bottoms Ranch wedding didn’t disappoint! Loved ones traveled in from all over, including their sweet goldendoodle pup named Noodle. Mountain views offered an incredible experience and their vendors created a lovely mix of natural yet elegant vibes inside the light filled barn where they enjoyed dinner and partied. Visually and emotionally their wedding was incredible and one I’ll never forget.

One of my favorite parts of the wedding was how their day began. Upon arrival Katya’s friend, Yael, guided the bridal party in meditation. Their intent was to begin the day in a way that was both energizing and nurturing for Katya. She also wanted to give back to her loved ones who have loved and supported her. During the meditation each bridesmaid would sit across from her, hold hands, and give her a blessing. A good vibe, wish, optimistic hope. In the Jewish tradition brides have an extra special power on their wedding day, so Katya gave right back. She welcomed her bridesmaids to ask for something they needed in their own lives. This set a beautiful tone that remained through the day.

Their ceremony was emotional with many readings from loved ones and personalized vows. The overall vibe of their wedding felt very calm and natural, progressing into a full on party as the day went on. They even invited us along to their after party where they treated us as friends and let us capture some of the craziness that followed.

I’m deeply grateful for clients like Katya and Bart who want loved ones to have just as great of a time celebrating as they’re having. Couples who fully live in the moment and celebrate with meaning and passion. It was a day where we celebrated with them well past midnight and didn’t want it to end.

Date Night with Rocky Mountain Bride

Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine released their 2019 Utah issue today and it’s dreamy! Our feature is a collaboration with the Blended Table to show you how to have an intimate anniversary or date night at home vs. hitting the town. My favorite part? These recipes the Blended Table crafted are easy for all to recreate together at home. My love and I prefer staying in and cooking together vs. going out and we liven up our meals with locally sourced produce and splurge on tasty cheese. Most importantly though when we cook together at home we are connecting and learning new skills that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. This editorial goes right along with something we would enjoy ourselves which is why I enjoy it so much.

Big thank you to the ladies at Rocky Mountain Bride and the Blended Table team! Our engaged couple Madison and Chris were also fantastic for bringing all of their loving vibes. They were naturals.

Rocky Mountain Bride Date Night Editorial

Instead of a lively outing on the town, opt for a romantic night for two in the comfort of your own kitchen. Splurge on the finest ingredients, light the candles and turn up your favorite playlist, darling. The Blended Table will take care of the rest! From curated cocktails to crush worthy recipes, staying in just got a little sweeter.
