Wedding Photographer at Argnonaut Hotel in San Francisco. Natalie and Andrew.

Natalie and Andrew had their wedding ceremony and reception at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco. This was a totally flawless day for an adorable couple. They thought of some wonderful special touches like enjoying an Irish coffee at the famous Buena Vista in Fisherman’s Wharf with their entire bridal party before their wedding ceremony. We walked around I did their San Francisco wedding photography portraits on the iconic cable car and around Fisherman’s Wharf.  We even did their wedding couple portraits on a valet dolly with the concierge in the photo.  I love the wedding image of the couple framed by the red doors in Ghiradelli Square and they are sticking out their tongues.  Such a Fun day and beautiful San Francisco Wedding for a fantastic couple!

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Angela and Yuan.

Angela and Yuan were married at the coveted and iconic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco It’s a fabulous wedding venue for your wedding ceremony and your reception.  The natural light that pours into the windows are so dramatic and the art deco details at The Julia Morgan Ballroom are so great as a backdrop to your wedding photography.  It literally frames a couple in their images as the architecture is so intricate and bold.  This was a FUN wedding.  The couple and their bridal party literally danced down the aisle for the procession and their recession during their wedding ceremony.  Such a fun festive group they had and I had so much fun as the wedding photographer capturing all this fun in downtown San Francisco!

 

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!

Wedding Photographer at St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. Megan and Russell.

Such a classic San Francisco wedding! The couple got ready at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental, with formal wedding  photos taken at the Palace of Fine Arts. They were married at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, and the wedding reception was at the St. Francis Yacht Club in the Marina where this awesome couple partied hard with a corn hole toss, photo booth and tons and tons of over the top fun dancing. The wedding photography was artistic and photojournalistic in style.  They also wanted to incorporate classic wedding photography into their images so we took formal wedding photography images at The Palace of Fine Arts.  I love using light and color to highlight my subjects as a wedding photographer and each wedding venue location had it’s incredible light source so I had a magical day photographing Megan and Russell.  Here’s to magic all their years ahead of them!

 

 

Wedding photographer at San Francisco City Hall. Natalie and Mike

Lovely Wedding at San Francisco City Hall.  I loved photographing this couple’s wedding images by framing them in a silhouette at City Hall in San Francisco.  We had so much with their exit as well as all the guests jumped for the wedding images and it was such a fun celebration.  We also took a wedding detail image of Natalie, the bride’s, cute little blue shoes.  San Francisco City hall has the most exquisite architecture and it always looks spectacular in wedding photography!  I love photographing weddings at City Hall! Here’s wishing Natalie and Mike a beautiful life together!

 

Wedding Engagement Photographer in San Francisco. Marisa and Josh

Enagement Photography with this super cool couple at Sunset and Ocean beaches in San Francisco. I love being an engagement photographer especially when the couple wears wedding attire and wants to be adventurous with their engagement photos!  It’s so fun to go all over Sunset and Ocean Beach in San Francisco taking fun and artistic engagement photos!  I loved when they went for it and got in the ocean.  Best engagement photo ever!

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!
