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 Photography at Deer Park Villa, Fairfax in Marin County. Leah and Matthew.

Wow.  What a beautiful day this was.  I mean the love between Leah and Matthew is off the chart and their devotion to their four children is even more mind staggering.  The children were a part of every celebration and they loved it –even with a newborn attached to them most of the evening.  The venue, Deer Park Villa in Fairfax which is in the heart of Marin County near Samuel P. Taylor National Park is awe inspiring.  The redwoods tower above you giving you a peek at the star filled sky.  Such an emotional and authentic ceremony and reception gave me pause and event planner, Chiara DeJoy, made sure everything was just exquisite! I wish these two the absolute best life has to offer.

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emily and Steve.

Emily and Steve loved The Julia Morgan Ballroom with it’s grand lobby and architectural details.  We even got to steal to the roof for a gorgeous sunset portrait.  The ceremony was very elegant at St. Peter and Pauls Church in North Beach and then Emily and Steve along with their bridal party hopped on a trolly car to take them to The Julia Morgan Ballroom for such a fun and fantastic evening of incredible food and dancing. I hope these two have the most wonderful time for the rest of their lives.

Flying Cloud Wedding Photographer in Petaluma, Ca. Christina and Dan.

I just loved Christina and Dan the moment I met them.  They told me how they met and they were once roommates in San Francisco in the most sought after real estate in the country.  They ultimately chose love over security and it’s history ever since.  They are so fun and playful with each other and I know these two will be together for the long haul.  Their wedding took place at The Flying Cloud in Petaluma, CA and it was such a fantastic Indian summer evening. Love being a wedding photographer in my hometown of Petaluma!  Wish you both the best in life!

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 Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Castello di Amorosa in Sonoma Napa Wedding Photographer. Jessica and Jake.

Jessica and Jake were too cute.  They had a very intimate ceremony at Calistoga Ranch and then we went on an excursion to Castello di Amorosa in Napa Wine Country and took some more photos.  We had such a fun time sipping champagne and snapping photos.  I mean, come on….it’s wine country so when in Rome….Wish these two a lifetime of more adventures together.

Wedgwood Wedding Photographer Oakland, CA wedding photographer. Sheneesha and Marc

Love how sweet Marc and Sheneesha were with each other.  This reception went off with the dancing and I couldn’t have had more fun with all the funk and blues.  Their reception and ceremony was held at The Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center in Oakland, CA and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  Wishing these two much love and babies in their future.

San Francisco Wedding Photographer. Petaluma Photographer. Chrissy Fields, San Francisco. Murali and Prista.

So sometimes the internet can work in mysterious ways and Murali and Prista found my work online from Singapore and wanted to do an engagement session while they were in San Francisco.  We had a blast together and I hope they are snuggled as two bugs in a rug back in Singapore.  xoxo

Oakland Wedding Photographer. Berkeley City Club Wedding. Showing and Micah.

Couldn’t be more excited about photographing at The Berkeley City Club with all it’s timeless architecture and history.  It was a super fun wedding and Showing and Micah were thrilled to tie the knot at this historic landmark. Showing even had Micah compete in a warrior competition.  Which he completed with all his fervor!  He’s gonna make a good husband…. Congratulations to you both!

Wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco Bay Area. Engagement photo session in Monument Valley looks like a movie…Abigail and Ian.

Here’s the formula for an engagement shoot that looks like film stills from a cool western film full of adventure, intrigue, and romance…

We road tripped for a weekend to Monument Valley — once we were there, we explored Native American reservations, the arches, and had a blast!  Abigail and Ian were going to get married at Viansa Winery but wanted a different feeling for their engagement photography.  As a wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco I was more than thrilled to get to road trip and take awesome engagement photos in an artistic and editorial way in the red sand dunes.  Such an incredible engagement session as the photos speak for themselves.  Wait until the wedding in Sonoma Valley at Viansa Winery--the heart of wine country!
