Life throws you curve balls all the time.

You can have your dreams and plans seem perfectly orchestrated, but things will still not go as planned. Sara and Lisa had been planning their wedding for a long while and booked me even was chatting with me before they were officially engaged! We clicked so well when we spent the afternoon together for their San Francisco engagement session. So of course I was stoked for October to come along so I could celebrate their big day with them.

So many things had to change on their big day, but Sara and Lisa made the best out of it and remembered what was really important : their marriage on that day. It ended up being nothing like they had planned, but it was one of the most unique wedding experiences I have ever been a part of. It was a real day long wedding celebration sight seeing in San Francisco, taking photos, and then a delicious intimate dinner back at their roof top suite of the St. Francis hotel.

I am very happy to call these two my friends now. Thank you, my two sweet friends Sara and Lisa for having me be a part of this incredible day.

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.”
