Wedding Photographer at Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael, Marin County. Mariya and Evan.

Mariya and Evan are two of the kindest souls and smart….did I mention smart?  Oh boy they smart and they got the degrees from ivy league schools to prove it.  But they are kind too which makes you just love them anymore.  I loved being the wedding photographer for these two and especially at The Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael in Marin County.  The place screams to me, The Royal Tenenbaums, the movie that starred Gwenyth Paltrow.  So it has all it’s quirky grooves and crannies and the place seems to take on a persona in itself.  I really can get lost taking wedding portraits in the gardens or in the parlor on the french love seat —well basically all over the mansion.  I love these two and hope they continue to have the best times of their lives together.  And being that these two are so smart…I’m sure they’ll do just that.

LGBT Wedding Photographer at City Hall in San Francisco. Jack and Ryan. Love wins!

This romantic love story begins with a long distance relationship. Jack and Ryan met while Jack was vacationing in Thailand, and after a couple of years of long distance courtship, Ryan moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where they were finally able to marry under California law. The hosted the LGBT wedding ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall and their wedding reception was held in the delightful Japanese Tea Garden no less!  Because both Jack and Ryan couldn’t be more whimsical and fun I photographed their wedding photos in a very playful and artistic way.  It was raining when we got to the Golden Gate Bridge for their couple wedding portraits but I got the most awesome and unique wedding photo of them jumping with balloons with the drops of rain on my windshield.  We also took wedding portraits around City Hall and The Japanese Tea Gardens with their bridal party and had the best day ever —Yeah, Love wins!

Wedding Photographer at Hotel Vitale in San Francisco near The Ferry Building. Viktoria and Eric.

Viktoria and Eric love their city by the bay, San Francisco, and wanted to see all the iconic sights so having their wedding at Hotel Vitale on the gorgeous rooftop seemed like the perfect idea.  Check out the view of the bay and The Ferry Building as Viktoria tosses her bouquet to the deck below.  Such an amazing venue for your San Francisco wedding and I love being the wedding photographer at Hotel Vitale as it’s located in the Embarcadero in the middle of everything that is San Francisco.  I hope Viktoria and Eric have so many more wonderful adventures together and wish  them a lifetime of happiness!

Wedding photographer at The Generals Residence and Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco Bay Area. Leah and Aria.

Leah and Aria are so much fun as you can see by the groomsmen in their matching red boxer shorts! They chose The Generals Residence in the San Francisco Bay for it’s incredible views and historical meaning. But for the bridal party portraits they couldn’t resist choosing a The Palace of Fine Arts for the background of their wedding photography.  Such an exceptional couple with so much love for one another! xoxo

Wedding Photographer at San Francisco City Hall. Michelle and Brett

Michelle and Brett both love San Francisco, the city by the Bay, so after their intimate wedding ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall they wanted their wedding photos to pay homage with the Golden Gate Bridge. We also took some in some amazing artistic wedding portrait photography at Fort Point which has the most amazing spiral staircase! It’s all stone and you feel like you could be in a Scottish castle. Hope Michelle and Brett have so many fantastic adventures in their future together!

Wedding Photographer at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Redwood City in San Francisco Bay Area. Peiwan and Buddy.

Peiwan and Buddy had the most beautifully emotional wedding ceremony at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Redwood City in the South Peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area.  It sits high up on a bluff where the fog rolls in auspiciously and makes such a mystical addition to artistic wedding photography.  It was such a beautiful day with peonies and the most magnificent florals throughout the event.  Wishing Peiwan and Buddy the most wonderful lives together and many more wine tastings together at this spectacular venue.

Wedding Photographer at The Westin St. Francis and St. Pauls Union Square in San Francisco Bay Area. Suzzi and Mike.

Suzzi and Mike are so much fun it’s hard to even put into words.  They are hilarious and laugh all the time together.  However, they both love the glamourous things in life so their wedding photography reflects the gorgeous details that they both decided on for their wedding.  Their ceremony was at the baroque St. Paul’s Church in Union Square in San Francisco and they decided on the Westin St. Francis for their wedding reception because of the epic views of the city and the incredible interior of the top floor of the St. Francis.  It screams glamour and opulence.  I loved being their wedding photographer and would do it over in a heart beat.  So fun!  I hope Suzzi and Mike laugh the rest of their days together.  xoxo

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Monica and Frank.

Monica and Frank were so cute together I couldn’t take enough wedding photos of them.  They are both just gorgeous and were so beaming with love for each other I was beyond inspired.  Their ceremony was at the amazing St. Peter and Paul Cathedral in North Beach which is an iconic church in San Francisco. Not to mention The Julia Morgan Ballroom is so uber glamorous as a wedding venue with all it’s art deco architecture and gilted doors.  Frank is from Hawaii so they had a Hawaiian theme throughout their wedding. There was so much emotion during the speeches and they all had the most incredible time dancing until late.  Wish these two the absolute best for a lifetime together.  xoxo

Wedding Photographer at The Pavillion by the Bay on Treasure Island and San Francisco City Hall. Jamie and Matt.

Jamie and Matt are so awesome I can’t even put it into words.  First of all I met Jamie at her friend’s LBGT wedding at City Hall and she was so tearful with joy I couldn’t stop taking photos of her.  She is such a kind and compassionate soul.  And Matt is her super twin.  He is so supportive and just adores Jamie. They wanted to have the opulent and non fussy environment of San Francisco City Hall for their wedding ceremony and chose The Pavillion by the Bay on Treasure Island which has the most spectacular views imaginable of the San Francisco skyline.  Look at their wedding photography with the city lit up behind them.  Gorgeous!  Love them both!

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kelly and Ballan.

Look at the divine art deco detail the Julia Morgan Ballroom has and how perfectly beautiful does it look in Kelly and Ballan’s San Francisco wedding photography.  The two are very classic in their taste and values.  They wanted a venue that would reflect their love of tradition and family and being that The Julia Morgan Ballroom is in the heart of downtown San Francisco and it’s such a stately building they knew they found the perfect venue for their wedding.  Both of these two waited for a long time to get married as they hadn’t met until later in life so this wedding was extra special as everyone was so happy for them.  I love being a wedding photographer at San Francisco venues like this and especially when the couple is so grateful to have found one there “person” to spend the rest of their days with.  Beautiful.
