RED HOT! If a mini dress and slick gray suit don’t do it for you…well, I don’t know what will! Dani and David fled Chicago for a weekend elopement getaway in San Francisco last month. A true elopement. What a blast! They said their ‘I do’s’ at SF City Hall, said hello to an adorable (random) donkey, laughed hysterically by my new favorite mural, kissed while waiting for the F street car, continued making out under the cutest house, held hands and shared their most favorite dessert ever from Miette….carrot cake cupcakes! Days like that make me pinch myself…I have the best job ever! Enjoy their escapade sneak! (more…)
I don’t have to tell you that spring and summer is in the air! But I will say that spring had definitely sprung on Michele and Ryan’s super sweet mini wedding day. A gorgeous private ceremony on the 4th floor of San Francisco’s City Hall, kissing under the cherry blossoms in Presidio Heights and celebrating with fabulous friends and family at the Spruce….what could be better? Maybe not even chocolate chip cookies ;) Oh wait, Michele’s oh-so classy fur (fake!) bolero is what’s better!! Congrats you classy two! Enjoy the sneak! Big thanks to the FAB Jane Kim (The Glamourist) for Michele’s fantastic makeup and hair styling! (more…)
What do you get when two creatives wed in the fall?! Pure yay! Kristen and Ben’s City Hall mini wedding was full of vintage inspirations, diy fall details (like the flowers, can you believe she designed and arranged them!?), lots of laughter, surprises and San Francisco charm. We met Ben at our first look spot and found a wedding date sign that he made then Kristen surprised Ben and family with a pop-up bag reception (including a banner, sparkling cider & Frank Sinatra via her ipod) outside in the plaza. Wondering where she got her dress, here! We had so much fun…this is what weddings are all about. Enjoy! (more…)
Youna, Tim and I started our serendipitous portrait adventure in the charming Hayes Valley neighborhood just before their SF City Hall ceremony. Pretty pastels, pops of fuschia florals and a lime green bow tie highlighted their soft and charming personalities. It’s really nice photographing a petite wedding (1 of 2 weddings for Youna & Tim) because they tend to be more relaxed and care-free. Youna even showed me one of her skilled talents of piggybacking Tim (Youna, don’t worry I didn’t include that photo here)! Big shout out to Natalie Bowen Designs for the as-always chic florals! Enjoy the sneak! (more…)
Happy Friday! I’m going on 4 hours of sleep so I’ve had better Fridays ;) But as soon as I received the tweet that 100 Layer Cake posted Michelle and Jacob’s oh-so cute wedding, coffee couldn’t jolt the excitement I had! Check out the feature here and more images on my blog here. I love my 100 Layer Cake ladies, mwah!
