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.

Wedding Photographer at The Landmarks Art and Garden Center in Belvedere/Tiburon, Marin. Theresa and Marc

Theresa and Marc chose the The Landmarks Art and Garden Center which has the most exquisite views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. And they chose, Meren, from A Savvy Event whom is the most inpeccable wedding planner and she never fails to deliver anything less than perfection on your wedding day.  I love being a wedding photographer when A Savvy Event team member is one board as the design details are amazing.  Marc is the most phenomenal chef and used to own the iconic restaurant AQ in San Francisco where they would change the theme and menu according to the season.  He had his staff make the five course meal that was served to thier wedding guests and the food was out of this world.  Hope their life together will always be a grand epicurean adventure as this wedding was.  xoxo

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 Lake at Villa Bella Tahoe. Lake Tahoe wedding. Bethany and Chris.

Villa Bella Tahoe in Lake Tahoe has the most spectacular lake views and perfect for a wedding venue and that is exactly why Bethany and Chris chose it!  They rented a school bus which was so cute to escort the guests to the lodge and we had so much fun shooting their wedding photos with mostly natural light as the skies were gorgeous.  At the time of their wedding Villa Bella Tahoe was called Fitzhaven, however, it is now under new ownership and the name has changed.  It’s still just breathtaking and the you really can’t get better views of Lake Tahoe!

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.

Wedding Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena. Napa Valley, CA. Sarah and Nick.

I am in love with being a wedding photographer at The Culinary Institute of America as it is not only an exquisite wedding venue architecturally but the food is divine of course!  The light in these artistic wedding photos I took of Sarah and Nick is gorgeous and I loved capturing their couple wedding portrait photos in the vineyards and at their hotel, The Harvest Inn, in St. Helena beforehand. It was the most gorgeous wedding and Nick is a dress designer and he custom made Sarah’s dress!  At the wedding reception there was a beautiful video montage of him making her dress so it was so touching to see all the details he put into it.  Love this couple and hoping more creative endeavors in their future.

Wedding photographer – Lanai, Hawaii – Four Seasons. Jenny and Sean.

You can’t get more spectacular than the Four Seasons in Lanai, Hawaii. I love being a destination wedding photographer from the San Francisco Bay area….I mean who wouldn’t want to photograph gorgeous couples like this in a paradise such as Lanai, Hawaii.  Look at these stunning skies and views in their wedding photography.  Hawaiian dancers, roasts from friends…it was all just picture perfect!

Love Jenny and Sean and hope their future is as bright as this day was!  xoxo

 

 

 

Wedding photographer at City Hall in San Francisco in Bay Area. Veronika and Oleg.

This creative couple had a City Hall Wedding in San Francisco.  The bride contacted me from Moscow, Russia with some very editorial ideas for her wedding — she even brought rabbit masks! The dinner reception took place on the elegant Napa Valley Wine Train. Talk about an incredible backdrop for your wedding photography photos!  It looked like it was right out of a movie!

Wedding photographer at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, Marin County. Stacey and Matt.

The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA, is a magical place for a wedding. Stacey and Matt made it even more magical with sparklers illuminating the air as they strolled off together into their future…I love wedding photography with sparklers!  And the gardens at MAGC are spectacular.  I particularly love the wedding couple shot of them under the massive live oak tree.  And anytime you can blow out twinkle light in an artistic way with beautiful bokeh you should!  Wedding photographs look so artistic and beautiful that way!  I like to shoot my aperture at 1.8 to make the depth of field very slim to none to give that Monet art feel in the background.  Love being a wedding photographer in Marin and wish Stacey and Matt the best life together.  BTW, Matt is quite the talented photographer himself.  I was impressed!
