Scott and Ngoc enjoyed their first look on the terrace of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in San Francisco. This wedding moment was truly incredible – a sunset, a young love, a gorgeous couple, and the vastness of San Francisco spread out below them. It truly felt meant to be, the way it all came together.
I love the contrasts that emerge from my work! And I love the fact that my clients have such a high level of trust in me, to allow me to capture moments like this!
Had a beautiful time with Somaira and Abbas at San Francisco City Hall and beyond. More photos from these gorgeous shoots coming soon! In the meantime, here’s Somaira in her custom-made dress which took three people three months to make!
Every photograph I take is seared into my mind. That day at Villa Montalvo, with the tables set, the chuppah gently fluttering in the warm breeze, and the guests assembled impatiently for the ceremony, one of the strongest images was that of Shari and Ben, peering anxiously down at the ceremony before their processional. A wedding at Villa Montalvo is cozy, warm, and seamless, as the guests easily transition from ceremony to cocktails to dinner to dancing. Shari and Ben’s wedding unfolded beautifully, with an emotional ceremony, gorgeous decor, captivating and creative toasts, and some awesome dancing to cap the celebration. Congrats again to Shari and Ben, and Montalvo, I hope to be back soon!
San Francisco skies are usually either crystal clear blue, or a blanket of grey. But every once in a while, usually around this time of year, the confluence of Indian Summer and slightly less foggy evenings brings some drama into the skies. I only need a little bit, San Francisco, and I can make some kick-ass sunset wedding photographs!
Many clients see my posed shots and ask me about my approach to weddings. Is it more hands-on and posed? Or do I also do candids, aka wedding photojournalism? The honest answer here, in my opinion, is that weddings demand a professional photographer to master both approaches. When working with family groups, setting up my iconic creative portraits, or capturing details, it’s important to get exactly what I want as an artist (that’s what my clients expect!), and to ensure that these parts of the day stay organized and go smoothly. But there are also many parts of the wedding day where it’s best to fade out to the background and let the emotions flow and the moments happen naturally. With the right tools and sense of anticipation, I become an effective photojournalist. Because I understand the flow of a wedding day, I am always prepared to capture the most raw, the real, the intimate. This image of Robert and Martha is just such a moment. After the ceremony, the couple exited to a separate room and stole a moment to themselves, away from their families. I made sure my shutter was on silent mode and peeked around the corner to find them in an inseparable embrace, overcome by the emotion of their commitment. The result is one of the most truly candid wedding photographs I’ve ever taken.
