Lauren + Anthony: Married! (James Leary Flood Mansion, San Francisco)

Lauren and Anthony's wedding was one of the most exciting event of the year. They were so much fun to work with and I was so pleasantly surprised when Anthony told me that they wouldn't need any group portrait pictures at their wedding. My photojournalistic sense was happily being fully utilized on the day.

Lauren and Anthony's ceremony and reception took place at the James Leary Flood Mansion in San Francisco. The mansion has a very beautiful architecture and a touching story behind its history. It's breathtaking panaromic view of San Francisco, together with the lovely couple made some remarkable scenes for me to capture. Thanks again for letting me be your photographer to capture precious moments on this important day of yours.

Here is the e-session I had with Lauren and Anthony not too long ago.

Thecla + Chris : Got baby! (San Francisco Golden Gate Park)

I met Thecla and Chris at Sharon and Chi's wedding. Thecla is only a couple months away from the baby arrival, but her agility was quite impressive as she was helping just everywhere. I was very happy when she contacted me a week later that she and Chris would like to book a maternity photo session with me.

It was a gorgeous day in San Francisco, very sunny and warm. At the beginning, Chris seemed a bit uneasy in front of the camera. I started with some distant shots to let them be themselves and get warmed up for a while. Then magic happened and the shutters on my cameras kept clicking and the couple was much more natural with all different kinds of shots: closeup, intimate, playful, loving... We stayed at the beautiful De Young Museum and the Botanical Garden till the end of the session. Thecla and Chris did a great job! It was a very enjoyable shoot!
