California is known for golden sunsets, majestic views, lush and endless wineries. Most clients love a natural light photographer that can capture the essence of California.

But there is so much more to California. There’s this little city called San Francisco. It’s foggy, rather dark at times, and there isn’t many grapes growing there.

I let Holly and Rob know that the sun flares weren’t going to happen on their wedding day. In a cold day in January, the sun would be down before portraits of them together. They had seen my artificial light images from when I shared my commercial + fine art portrait work with them after hearing they had experience in the cinematography industry. So upon warning them on the lack of sunlight and that we would be relying on artificial light and flash of their portraits, they said something really awesome.

“That’s ok. We totally trust you.”
