Las Positas Vineyards Livermore Wedding Photos – Kaitlin and Joel

 

Kaitlin and Joel were married on a gorgeous day in Livermore California at Las Positas Vineyards. Las Positas is an awesome spot for small to medium sized weddings. It is surrounded by vineyards and the property is recently renovated and feels very clean and kind of rustic-modern. We love being a Las Positas Vineyards wedding photographer!

Sequoia Retreat Center – Ben Lomond – Wedding Photos of Monique and Joe

Photographing weddings in northern California is such a privilege. Wedding days like the one we had with Monique and Joe at the Sequoia Retreat Center in Ben Lomond, California really make us appreciate the beauty of where we live and the warmth of our clients and their families. Monique and Joe are especially kind and staggeringly intelligent. It was a pleasure and an honor to share their wedding day with them.

A week ago, Susan and Tom were on the beach in Hawaii, on a pre-honeymoon honeymoon I guess, when Susan noticed a San Francisco City Hall wedding had just posted. She hadn’t yet thought about getting a photographer for their upcoming elopement so she reached out to me immediately. I was available on her wedding day of Tuesday, 4.18.17 and here you go!

Noe’s Nest San Francisco Wedding Photos – Rene and Joe

We photographed an intimate wedding at Noe’s Nest Bed and Breakfast in San Francisco for Rene & Joe. They are both from Saint Louis, Missouri but wanted to have their ceremony in San Francisco. (excellent idea!) After the ceremony the party moved to Finnegans Wake in Cole Valley. A very cool bar loved by many locals and travellers alike.

Wine and Roses – Lodi – Wedding Photos with Dianah and Juan

Wine & Roses in Lodi, California is such a beautiful venue for a wedding. This is the second wedding that Jim Vetter Photography has done at this amazing location. Our first wedding there was in 2012. It was a pleasure to be back!

 

Dianah and Juan met us at a wedding fair in San Francisco early this year. We were delighted that they entrusted us with their wedding photography. It is truly and honor to photograph this huge occasion for our clients!

Dianah made all of the bouquets and boutonnieres herself! This is some pretty awesome DIY.

The bride and bridesmaids had the beautiful Deodar Room at Wine & Roses. This large suite has a big patio surrounded by huge trees. The light was AMAZING on the patio and we were able to get gorgeous photos out there all afternoon before the ceremony.

In the groom’s own words… “She is one of the most interesting, fun, outgoing people I have ever met, not to mention athletic. She knows how to take care of her friends and family, and would give up everything for them. There’s never a dull moment when she’s around, that’s for sure.”

Dianah and her Maid of Honor, Melissa have been very close for a long time. So close that they have matching ankle tattoos.

In the bride’s own words… “Juan is very loving, responsible, fun and carefree. He has strong family values, a great sense of humor, and a willingness to try anything new. Juan gets along with anybody and everybody! He’s incredibly hardworking, practical and considerate. He never forgets a birthday, holiday or anniversary, and is always very reliable. He’s the greatest guy I know!”

Bently Reserve Wedding Photos with Erica & Robert

The Bently Reserve has always been one of my favorite venues in San Francisco. Its classic architecture and grand appearance make it insanely elegant – especially when the right care goes into the event design and planning. This wedding was planned by Solmaz at Pretty Occasions and was really done right! We had such a great time photographing this wedding! Erica, Robert, and their wild wedding party were a blast to work with. They made our job easy by being so fun and so beautiful as well. Just look at Erica! Her superb hair and makeup was done by Angela Kim. Bently Reserve Wedding Photos Erica and Robert-1

Downtown San Francisco Engagement Photos with Erica and Robert

I was introduced to Erica and Robert by the amazing wedding planner, Solmaz Burke of Pretty Occasions in San Francisco. Erica & Robert were planning a September wedding at one of my favorite SF wedding venues, The Bently Reserve. I was very excited to be chosen to photograph their big day!

 

The couple really wanted to have a metropolitan feel to their wedding as well as their engagement. I suggested that we have the engagement session downtown and make use of the beautiful architecture of the Embarcadero Center and they enthusiastically agreed.

When we met in front of Embarcadero Four I had the wonderful surprise to see that they had just adopted a crazy-cute french bulldog puppy on their way to meet me that afternoon! He didn’t even have a name yet but he was full of personality and kind of ran the show that day. Can you believe how beautiful this puppy is?

In my regular style, we wandered around the Embarcadero in search of great spots to shoot. We were gifted with beautiful light everywhere and had a fantastic time. The Embarcaderos have really cool walkways that spiral up through multiple levels. The next few images were taken on that walkway.

Of course, we had to jump on a San Francisco cable car at the bottom of California Street. What could be more San Francisco than this 🙂

 

San Francisco Engagement Photos Erica Robert 4

I LOVE to photograph in the city with my super wide 14-24mm lens! I’m able to capture the towering buildings that make downtown San Francisco so cool. This lens also makes people look really tall and thin when used correctly. People seem to like that for some reason.

I had been wanting to do this show below for some time. Erica and Robert were down for it so I set it up and we braved the cold air just long enough to get this awesome shot of Erica and Robert frozen in time while the city zips by all around them.

I’d like to thank Erica & Robert for being such fun people to photograph. I’d also like to thank Solmaz for introducing me to this wonderful couple.

The wedding is just around the corner. More photos to come…
