Wedding photographer in San Francisco. St. Mary’s Cathedral and The Julia Morgan Ballroom. Nelse & Brian.

With a ceremony at St. Mary’s in San Francisco and reception at the Julia Morgan Ballroom, everything about this celebration of love was classic, touching, and beautiful. The toasts were the most heartfelt and emotional I’ve heard in a long time. (Check out the passionflower on the cake!)  I love being a wedding photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom.  The art deco detailing in the building is the perfect backdrop for wedding portrait photography.  Also, around the area there are gorgeous buildings as well to take either your wedding couple portraits or your group formals portraits.  Such a spectacular day as the sunset peeked through the windows of the top floor of The Julia Morgan Ballroom while everyone danced and toasted this beautiful couple!  xoxo

 

Wedding photographer at City Club San Francisco. Nicole & Chuck.

A classic and gorgeous Christmas time wedding at The City Club San Francisco. I love being the wedding photographer at Christmas weddings with all the decorations and the twinkly lights. I think they make for great bokeh in your wedding photos as they blow out all big and fuzzy in the background of the photos.  I also like shooting things like the bouquet with a reflection in a glass table as it has an artistic touch to them.  But the best part about weddings at The City Club is the roof.  Look at the skyline of San Francisco behind this wedding couple.  I mean talk about an incredible couple portrait from their San Francisco Christmas time wedding!  Yeah!

Cheers to Nicole and Chuck!

 

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 the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Allison & Drew.

I had the honor to photograph such a beautiful wedding at the iconic and posh Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. The wedding photographs are very urban and architecturally artistic as the bride Allison wanted her wedding images to reflect the beauty of downtown San Francisco with all it’s glory.  She even wanted to include the TransAmerica Building and The Bentley staircase in her wedding couple photographs.  Allison and Drew had the most incredible appetizers that I took photographs of.  I love being a photographer at these grand events when they serve food this amazing!  Such a fun couple and lots of dancing went on late through the evening!
