San Francisco Pier 5 and Land’s End Engagement Photos – Miranda and Byron

Amazing couple. Amazing Day. Miranda and Byron requested that we do the engagement session in San Francisco on Pier 5 as well as Land’s End. I love both of these locations and they didn’t let us down.

We started with a drink at Coqueta and then got some great shots on Pier 5…

Then we went up to Land’s End for a gorgeous sunset. I love it when San Francisco gives us some dramatic clouds for an engagement shoot.

Thank you, Miranda and Byron! Can’t wait for your wedding this summer!

The Hornblower yachts have the best views in the bay area!

St Dominics and Argonaut Hotel San Francisco Wedding – Patty and Erwin

We had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Patty & Erwin earlier this month. The wedding was planned and designed by Melissa Fancy.

They held their ceremony at the very grand Saint Dominic’s Catholic Church in San Francisco. See images of this beautiful cathedral in the post below. The reception was held at the Argonaut Hotel near Fisherman’s Wharf.

The gorgeous florals were provided by Hayley at Calla Hill Floral. Hayley was so great with my clients and her work was superb!

San Francisco City Hall and Stern Grove Wedding Photos – Dulce and Cedric

Dulce and Cedric were married at San Francisco City Hall following a quick portrait session at Stern Grove. City Hall has their giant Christmas tree at the top of the stairs and it is breathtaking. Such a beautiful place for a December wedding!

Stern Grove is always beautiful with its towering trees and beautiful stonework and walking paths. Its worth checking out for weddings and other events.

Marriage Proposal Photos – San Francisco Embarcadero Cupid’s Span

David surprised Shareen with a ring and a photographer under Cupid’s Span on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. I was posing as a tourist and captured their San Francisco marriage proposal. Jim Vetter Photography has been doing a lot of proposal lately 🙂

She said yes!

Letting it soak in…
