Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Krissy and Max

The Julia Morgan Ballroom is a perfect place for a wedding in San Francisco. It has the most incredible art deco architecture so your wedding photos have the most stellar backgrounds and the lighting is spectacular to capture your wedding reception photos at sunset. The light comes in through the windows just in time to highlight your first dance as husband and wife. It’s an honor to be a wedding photographer and I know these traditions are so important to be captured in an photojournalistic way but to also keep them artistic and beautiful.  Krissy and Max did a first look at Omni Hotel where they were staying before they hopped across the street to the Julia Morgan Ballroom for their ceremony in the lobby. The wedding reception was upstairs on the penthouse floor with the glamorous San Francisco City skyline peeking in through the windows.  Fabulous wedding and such a fun and sweet couple!  Here’s to lots of wonderful times together, Krissy and Max!

 

Wedding Photographer at Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Karen and Trevor

This New Jersey couple had their wine country wedding ceremony and reception at the Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg. This spot is simply, undeniably lovely, and this couple is too! They flew all their guests in from the East Coast to join them. There are so many beautiful rustic backgrounds for wedding photography.  I love taking couple wedding photography on the train tracks and at the rustic barn.  Also the Italian fountain is a beautiful location to take your wedding portraits at as well.  There are so many  to choose from.  Of course there is always the vineyards to take your couple wedding portraiture in at sunset to get that iconic wine county wedding photograph!  Love this cute couple and wish them the best!  Cheers!

 

 

Wedding Photographer at the Villagio Vintage Estates. Yountville and Napa, CA. Ashley and Brian

It’s really hard to beat the Villagio Vintage Estates in Yountville near Napa Valley for a spectacular wine country wedding. You can get the iconic wine county wedding photography as there is a gorgeous winery near these cool train tracks and at The Villagio there are wonderful backdrops for your wedding images too. I love photographing couples under the ivy pergola as it frames them and the wedding bridal party images look great with the faded murals as their backdrops.  I took most of these in a photojournalistic style but some I had posed into a more editorial and artistic setting.  Mostly thought I used natural light even for the toast under the moonlit skies with the twinkle lights.  Such a gorgeous couple.  Just look at the image of them getting rose petals tossed on to them after they said their I Do’s during their wedding ceremony.  It was a glorious day had by all!  Congratulations and best wishes for a wonderful life together!

 

 

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 Calistoga Ranch. Napa Valley Crystal and Tom.

Crystal & Tom had their wedding at the awe-inspiring and rustic gem Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Crystals dress was one princesses dream of having their wedding photographs taken in.  It was exceptional as was her decor with hanging votive candles everywhere and blossoms framing her in every wedding image.  Emotions were running high and happy tears were shed as this beautiful couple said their I do’s.  I loved the butterflies she had hanging over their table during the reception.  I loved them and feel their wedding wedding photographs reflected the artistic choices they made for their ambience.  Wish these two the best together!

Wedding photographer at the Generals Residence in San Francisco. Janie and Jim.

A grilled cheese truck and a donut truck, and a gaggle of glamorous red shoes — this wedding was a blast to photograph. The General’s Residence in San Francisco’s Fort Mason is a magnificent venue for a wedding with incredible views of The San Francisco Bay. If you want your wedding photos to parlay the beauty of San Francisco then look no further as this venue is close enough to the Palace of Fine Arts where you can photograph your wedding party and also have enough time to photograph your wedding couple portraits at Chrissie Fields to get the iconic photos of The Golden Gate Bridge in your wedding attire. So much Fun being the wedding photographer on this awesome wedding and who doesn’t want a donut late into the night.  Nicely done Janie and Jim!
