Maylene & Alejandro | Classic Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel Wedding

Annie and I flew to the east coast last month for Maylene & Alejandro’s Fairmont Pittsburgh hotel wedding. That weekend marked many “firsts” for us (we had never been to Pennsylvania!), but the biggest one is that it was our first time photographing a close friend’s wedding. We normally get to know all of our couples pretty well by the time we show up on their wedding day, but it’s really a different experience to look through the lens and focus on every expression, every smile, and every tear for someone we’ve known for half our lives… and I’m so glad we did it!

Sonia & Christian | San Francisco City Hall Grand Wedding

Shooting a grand wedding at San Francisco City Hall is every photographer’s dream! Thanks to Christian and Sonia, we can now cross it off of our bucket list 🙂

It was an overcast day, but the rain didn’t stop the love!! Before their wedding ceremony, I got a few funny candid photos in the rain with a flipped umbrella when stepping out of the WorldMark SF, and then at the end of the night we got a few romantic photos outside City Hall, in the rain, right before their send-off in a Yellow Cab.

Van & Matt’s Wedding at Union Hill Inn, Sonora | Northern California Wedding Photographer

I can’t wait to share with you Van and Matt’s stunning wedding photos! Their wedding was like a dream come true with a breathtaking chapel ceremony and a reception that was full of surprises. It started with a DIY boozequet that Van made herself — a beautiful, handcrafted silk bridal bouquet with a metal straw for drinking the beer cleverly hidden in the base… genius! She also designed her own dress, incorporating Vietnamese culture into their American-style wedding. [ read more … ]
