LGBT Wedding Photographer in Castro Valley, San Francisco Bay Area. Stacey and Laura.

If you are lucky enough to know Stacey and Laura then you know you are among the kindest people around.  They have twin girls and were beyond elated that that their moms could finally be married in the eyes of the state of California. And believe me they had some rocky times.  They had been married during the brief time period gay and LGBT weddings were legal but then the Supreme Court ruled them not legal and they had to go through that emotional hula hoop. BUT….this time it was LEGIT.  And it has since stayed.  And from the emotion of their twin girls…this is one happy family.  Love you all and hope your life is filled with this much love until the end of time.

LGBT Wedding at St. Peter’s Chapel on Mare Island in San Francisco Bay Area. Lisa and Maya.

Lisa and Maya found St. Peter’s Chapel on Mare Island in the San Francisco Bay Area and they knew it was the perfect quirky chapel to finally tie the knot in front of their extra large brood and extended family and friends.  It has this very deserted feel to it yet that day it was like life was blown back into this very cool church. And did I mention there were kids everywhere having the time of their lives?  Between Lisa and Maya they have 4 children and it wouldn’t have been a celebration without all their kids friends as well!  It was so amazing to be the wedding photographer at this festive very kid friendly event.  I captured kids in their awesomeness which is exactly what Lisa and Maya wanted. Big kudos to this incredible family!

 

LGBT Wedding photographer at City Hall San Francisco bay area. Bill and Joe.

I love Bill and Joe. There I said it.  You know when you meet someone and you just adore them instantly.  They had come in from Ohio and googled San Francisco Same Sex or LBGT wedding photographer and found me and I showed up for their wedding ceremony at San Francisco City Hall and we just clicked.  We had so much fun posing all over City Hall and then took a trip to The Japanese Tea Garden, The De Young Museum and Baker Beach to take more fun wedding portraits.  In the end….I came across a rather large piece of drift wood at Baker Beach I had to have in my backyard so we all just hauled it back laughing our asses the entire way.  Such a wonderful day!  Can’t wait to visit you two in Ohio one of these days!  xoxo

Gay Wedding photographer at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Bay Area. Peter and Jared

I can’t say enough about how fantastic this wedding was! I loved everything about documenting Peter and Jared’s amazing day.  We did couple wedding photographs at their hotel and at the Grace Cathedral.  I love photographing same sex weddings as I am honored to be a part of progressive civil right change.  Being a LBGT wedding photographer is one of my favorite things and I am most proud of being to work with these exceptional couples.  They are so positive and have the deepest level of compassion and emapthy.  In perfect SF style, they had a cable car deliver them to their ceremony at the magnificent Grace Cathedral. They prepped for the wedding at the luxurious Scarlet Huntington Hotel, and their reception was at a club so swanky I’m not allowed to mention its name online! Peter’s children were in attendance with their partners, all beaming with happiness for their father. We had so much fun taking photo journalistic style wedding photos of them all at the wedding reception and took some more artistic and stylized wedding photos of the couple around the venue. Food stations were everywhere with every kind of food imaginable. Such a beautiful day full of so much love…Congrats!
