Outdoor Art Club Mill Valley Wedding Photos – Katie and Michael

Mill Valley is such a beautiful setting for weddings. We photographed the wedding of Katie and Michael at the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley. 

Katie got ready for the wedding at her parents house just a couple of blocks from the venue. They live in a cutest neighborhood up in the Mill Valley hills.

The Outdoor Art Club is a charming venue right in downtown Mill Valley. It has a beautifully sunny front patio as well as a more private back patio where we did the ceremony.

The indoor space at the Outdoor Art Club is very warm and cozy. The old timber construction has the rustic feel of an old log cabin. It was a very intimate location for the dinner and dancing.

Sunset Hornblower Cruise Wedding – Paula & Dariush

Marin Headlands Engagement Photos – Kirby Cove – Kim and Aaron

I feel so fortunate to be a wedding and engagement photographer in the San Francisco Bay area! There are so many amazing locations to shoot. This week, I took Kim and Aaron down to Kirby Cove and we had the best conditions – perfect weather, barely a soul around, and a moonrise that blew us away.

We started up on Battery Spencer overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Then we followed the sun down the hill toward Kirby Cove. Sunset on the road to Kirby Cove is so beautiful.

When we got down to the beach at Kirby Cove, there were very few people so it felt like we had the place to ourselves.

Just as we were about to start the hike back up the hill, we noticed that the full moon was rising over the city and under the bridge. Amazing!

Such a sight to see! The bridge turned into a lighthouse as the moon shone through the north tower. That’s a very rare thing to see.

Congratulations, Kim and Aaron! I can’t wait for the wedding 🙂

Marin Engagement Photos – Philz Coffee and Mt Tamalpais – Lana and Eric

Lana and Eric LOVE coffee. So, when I asked them where to meet for their engagement photos, coffee was their request! We met up at Philz Coffee in Corte Madera for a few shots (coffee AND photos) before heading up Mt Tamalpais for the epic photos that Mt. Tam always gives me.

Sunset Hornblower Wedding on San Francisco Bay – Kumi and Tyler

We had a rockin’ wedding on the bay last weekend with Kumi & Tyler. Seriously, the boat was rocking like crazy and the dance floor was hilarious! That didn’t stop anyone from having a great time though. Kumi and Tyler were couldn’t have been happier.

The wedding was held onboard the Sunset Hornblower Yacht out of Berkeley. The Hornblower crew, their service, and their food is always fantastic!

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
