Marriage Proposal Photography – Leonard + Olivia

Such a magical moment I got to photograph! It was a very heartfelt wedding proposal when Leonard proposed to Olivia. They flew out from Boston to Sonoma and Leonard surprised Olivia at The Fairmont Mission Inn Sonoma. Then he had his and her family fly out from back east to surprise her at a dinner at Tarla in Napa. It was a very emotional evening and I’m so happy for this couple as they are so beautiful inside and out!

Wedding Photographer at Emanu-El in San Francisco. Genie and Mark.

A beautiful and classic Jewish wedding ceremony and a reception with the hora dance at the absolutely gorgeous Emanu-El in San Francisco. This special day had everything, even the iconic cable car shot and wedding preparations at the distinguished Fairmont Hotel. Emanu-El has exquisite architectural details for your wedding photography backdrop and the lighting is divine.  Mostly using natural light in these artistic wedding photos I try to capture the raw essence of the space using ambient lighting.  These wedding images are beautiful as they are an artistic expression of the couple themselves and their Jewish values.  A San Francisco wedding photographer can have so much fun shooting the Hora dance as everyone is so vital and excited to be a part of this epic traditional dance!  You gotta move fast with your camera though as everything goes by in the blink of an eye.  I love the hora dance wedding images as everyone is so excited and filled with this innocent joy!  Mazel tov to this exceptional couple for many years to come!
