It doesn’t get more special than Sadie and Reid. Sweet Sadie is a pastor of Bethany United Methodist Church, and Jerred and I had the honor of photographing her beautiful wedding right here in San Francisco. They wanted an urban feel to their images, so we drove around Noe Valley and ended with a sunset in Burlingame. Beautiful, natural, and effortless. Sunsets and people in love never get old.
Calling the weather a warm afternoon would be the understatement of the year. At 112 degrees during the peak of any other day might have been unbearable, but there is always extra magic floating around when it comes to love and weddings. They cuddled and laughed during their portraits like a pro, and Liz’s hair somehow remained perfect throughout the whole day- see for yourself! Liz and Craig wanted a Great Gatsby feel to their wedding, and we think they pulled it off with flying colors! Sunset time in Kenwood can be somewhat difficult because of the hills towards the coast, but I was lucky enough to steal them away for a short sunset session right before the first dance.
Shooting in wineries is always a joy. Posing and strolling among the grapes and lush greenery stays being a winning combo for us. A color palette of sage, peach, blush, with pops of magenta and raspberry colored our day as we focused in on what we do best: turning beautiful moments into lasting memories.
Ashley and Kevin’s wedding took place at 3 different venues. We started the day at the Stanford Park Hotel where Jerred, Vincent and I met them. Jerred went to hang out with Kevin and his groomsmen while Vincent and I shot Ashley’s dress, shoes, and invitations. As soon as we were done with the details Ashley got in her dress and we went straight to the courtyard for pictures of her with her friends and family.
An hour later we got in an old school bus that was converted in to a large Woody. It had a killer sound system and wood paneling on the inside. We proceed to rock out to Taylor Swift on the drive to the Church.
We arrived to Mission Santa Clara around 2pm for the ceremony. After the ceremony we did family portraits, bridal party pictures, and a few pictures of Ashley and Kevin in a record 30 minutes! We hopped back on the bus and our next stop was the Menlo Circus Club. It was stunning.
Right before sunset we strolled around the property to get a few more portraits and off to dinner!
On December 3rd, 2016, Anabel and Tim got married and the day couldn’t have been more perfect! Anabel worked closely on the design of her wedding with the team from Willow Heights Mansion, who designed, planned and coordinated the event.
The ceremony was outdoors about an hour and half before sunset. Willow Heights Mansion is not only stunning on the outside; the interior of the venue is also a photographer’s dream. The inside is light grey with hints of white and large windows. It was a fabulous way to end our 2016 season!
