Nicole & Amir’s Garden Valley Ranch Wedding
Nicole & Amir’s Garden Valley Ranch wedding was the first time we visited this hidden gem of a venue, and it couldn’t have been with a more lovely couple! Nicole and Amir are probably our nerdiest bride & groom (and smartest too — but they won’t tell you that!), and we had a blast photographing their wedding. Since their engagement shoot a year ago, we’ve been eagerly awaiting their wedding day, and it finally arrived. [ read more … ]
Annie & Kevin’s Sunny SF Engagement Photos
Annie and Kevin got married a few years ago, but they never got around to taking photos in San Francisco… so we set out to fix that last week! These two were a bunch of fun and full of giggles, like they had just gotten married yesterday. I loved capturing all of their little kisses and smiles, and the beautiful skies certainly didn’t hurt. Here are a few of my favorites from their shoot at a couple of my favorite spots in SF 🙂
Jeffrey & Julie’s The GlassHouse SJ Wedding Ceremony & Reception
It’s strange how some long wedding days can go by so quickly, and Jeffrey & Julie’s wedding was definitely one of those. We met up with them in the morning at Hayes Mansion, where the emotional tone for the rest of the day was quickly set with Julie’s reveal with her bridesmaids & bridesmen, followed by her very heartfelt speech thanking each of them for being a part of her journey over the years. J&J’s first look was a very touching one, and after that we lost count of how many times Jeffrey cried and laughed at the same time throughout the day. The mansion was a perfect place for all of this plus lots of portraits for everyone — both the beautiful interior and clean exterior are just so ideal for photos!
Though this first part of their wedding day was quiet and relaxed, it was a great lead-in to the ceremony & reception at The GlassHouse SJ, where the energy really picked up, especially during the reception which included a spectacularly-performed surprise lion dance as well as some pretty incredible dancing [ read more … ]
Eugene & Gemma’s SF Wedding Portraits
Eugene and Gemma got engaged and married in 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic, and as a result, they didn’t get to take a set of photos back then 🙁 And now that they’re husband and wife and we’re all free to roam around the city again, they decided that it’s time! We took this opportunity to get them back into a set of wedding attire and a couple of more casual outfits, and we created a set of SF wedding portraits at some of the most classic and iconic locations around the city. A big belated congratulations to E&G on getting married and surviving the pandemic together!
Cindy & Jonathan’s Filoli Gardens Micro-Wedding
Sometimes, you meet the right person and just know right away that they’re the one. Cindy and Jonathan’s story began not long before the pandemic, and while surviving quarantine life together, they both decided it’s time. Life’s too short to wait any longer! So on a sunny spring morning, we met up with Cindy, Jonathan, and a few of their family members to celebrate their micro-wedding at Filoli Gardens. [ read more … ]
