    Anchored in hope, saved by Grace.

    We believe in love & laughter. We believe life needs to be documented & stories should be shared. Adventures are always out there, it's up to us to discover them. Here at Photoflood Studio we would love to get to know you while photographing you, coordinating an event or designing for you.

Love can truly bring two people together — she’s a bay area native & he’s from Ireland. He immediately fell in love when they met & knew he had to find the key to this girl’s heart. The proposal included her two loves: board games & fantasy, which after 2 months of toiling over a custom Dungeons & Dragons board game, totally worked. It’s obvious when couples have natural chemistry & within the first few minutes of hanging out with them we knew that they really do have something special.

Kat just finished up her graduate studies at San Jose State University & thought it would be fun to do her graduation photos while bringing along fiancé Aidan. The entire afternoon was filled with smiles & hugs.

We are so pumped to shoot their wedding this upcoming weekend & already know how beautiful of a bride + handsome of a groom these two will be!

When Annette from Petals of Love Floral + Event Design first emailed me about shooting her sister in law’s baby shower she mentioned that the decor would consist of giraffes + gold confetti. But I had no idea how elaborate & beautiful the entire party would be! Annette did a gorgeous job of utilizing the space & her extraordinary talents to create this vintage chic baby shower.

Set in her mother’s amazingly perfect victorian home, Lynna’s baby shower was the most amazing baby shindig I’ve ever been a part of. Surrounded by family & friends with unending delicious treats Lynna was all smiles! This was such a blessing to witness & to document. I feel like Jackson & I have been a part of their family for years!

Congrats to the proud mama-to-be on her first baby girl & Annette for planning a super successful shower!

Weddings can be the most beautiful celebrations. A day, or even multiple days, full of love & laughter with a couple being surrounded by their loved ones. They can also turn into the most complicated & intricate events to plan out, but luckily there are amazing creatives who are there to help. One of these talented individuals is Mary from Very Merry Events, a super talented wedding & event planner.

It’s always amazing to find individuals who are so passionate about their dreams, but it’s even more encouraging when they’re actually making their dreams happen. Mary has had a running start in founding her series of workshops for designers, event planners & creative vendors. Not only has she already begun teaching & inspiring others locally, she’s already been invited to some of the biggest wedding industry conferences as a speaker! The Sketchbook Series is for those who are curious about bringing it all back to the basics. Nowadays we can find so much inspiration in many forms – magazines, blogs & Pinterest, but Mary believes that if an awesome idea comes to you – draw it yourself! In her workshops Mary teaches foundational skills in sketching out one-of-a-kind ideas for your events.

I was lucky enough to be able to photograph her workshop at the Napa Valley Linens showroom in Emeryville where she teamed up with Honeycomb Designs, The Whole Cake, Soul Flower Design Studio, Milk Glass Vintage Rentals & Archive Rentals to create her “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” themed dessert display. A brillant idea taken from pencil & paper to a beautiful arrangement of tasty desserts, diamonds & bright colors.

If you’re interested in learning more or taking one of her classes (which I highly recommend), please visit the newly launched site here: www.thesketchbookseries.com
