We were fortunate to catch the tail end of cherry blossom season this spring in Golden Gate Park for Jo & Bryan’s engagement session. I never tire of these beautiful blooms! It’s too bad they only make their appearance just once a year. Jo & Bryan are such a fun loving couple and I love how they interact with each other. Their playfulness really shows in the photos. I can’t wait for their wedding later this year!
As a photographer, I always strive to stay creative and fresh. I was very excited to hear that Crystal and Greg were having their wedding reception at Trou Normand, a non-typical wedding venue. I was fortunate that my couple gave me complete artistic freedom to shoot whatever I wanted to shoot. I took this as an opportunity to photograph this reception in a very editorial style, something you would see in Travel + Leisure or Kinfolk. It was such a sweet and beautiful celebration of close family and friends coming together to share in each other’s company with delicious food and fine wine. Everything was made beautiful with the styling and flowers by the talented Nancy Liu Chin.
Both Kellie and Jon’s families have long histories in San Francisco so it was only appropriate to photograph their engagement session in our beautiful city. As a native to San Francisco, I never get tired of the beauty and charm of my city! I love engagement photos because that is where I develop the trust from my couples. No questions asked, Kellie & Jon gladly climbed up on ledges and stood in the middle of Powell Street dodging cars just so I could get the perfect photos.
I love how video gives you such a different experience to the wedding day. Lucy & Ben had a beautiful wedding at Cornerstone Sonoma and the couple’s personality really shined in their video. You must hear Ben’s opening line as it sets such a fun tone to the rest of the wedding day! Congrats to Lucy & Ben!
