Jen + Skyler: Love in the City (San Francisco, CA)

San_Francisco_wedding_photographer_Engagement_session_Palace_of_Fine_Arts_Crissy_Field_01From our first meeting, I already felt connected to this charming couple. Jen and Skyler are one of the couples we worked with this year who moved away from the Bay Area but will be coming back to this beautiful city of San Francisco to host their wedding.  

We first went to the Palace of Fine Arts, an all-time popular spot for engagements and weddings. The place was crowded with tourists as usual, but we got the charms from the couple for the nice weather and blue sky, which was all we needed! We had so much fun making some creative portraits with the light.

Our second stop was Crissy Field. The nice weather and the crimson Golden Gate Bridge made a perfect scene. I especially like how Jen's dress and hair danced in the wind! A gorgeous, romantic feeling, especially with the sunset lighting!

Can't wait to work with this lovely couple next year for their wedding!

Ashley + David: Cheers to our love! (Tiburon, CA)

San_Francisco_wedding_photographer_Engagement_session_Tiburon_Old_Saint_Hilary_church_Horseshoe_Bay_01 What a beautiful day to saunter in the Tiburon town and the surroundings of Horseshoe Bay! It's also the day that marked one year before Ashley and David's wedding day! Such a nice thought to pick this special day for their engagement session. 

Ashley and David walked along the hillside where the charming looking Old St. Hilary's church sits on top, and wandered through the beautiful town of Tiburon. We then went to the pier at Cavallo Point by Horseshoe Bay, and the couple made their toast on the shore! 

I especially loved and enjoyed creating this set with the soft afternoon light! So dreamy and romantic. Although it will still be a while, but I'm already anxiously looking forward to this gorgeous and fun couple's wedding next year!

Miriam + Martin: A Dreamy, Fairy-tale Wedding (San Anselmo, CA)

San_Francisco_wedding_photographer_San_Francisco_Theological_Seminary_Bay_Club_Stone_Tree_Wedding_01

On this lovely day in the Marin county, in the charming, peaceful hills of San Anselmo, inside this European style white architecture, the beautiful couple Miriam and Martin tied their knot and started their Happily Ever After story and journey.

The beautiful white building was the Stewart Hall of the San Francisco Theological Seminary, and was designed after the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy. Just the perfect place for a fairy-tale wedding! 


As the ceremony started, it was such a lovely sight to see the beautiful bride led down the grand walkway of the Stewart chapel. And she was introduced by the cutest little baby flower girl ever, in her pretty little white dress and a pacifier in her mouth! 


After the ceremony, the bridal party got the chance to explore the uniquely designed campus and architecture, and we took many many great pictures of the cool couple and their awesome bridal party. 


The celebration continued at the Bay Club Stone Tree - the grand entrance of the most gorgeous looking King and Queen, their wonderful first dance, followed by an exhilarated night of dancing and great food and wine - a joyful night for the newlywed and all the guests there!


Congratulations again to the happy couple, wishing them a lifetime of happiness and love to follow!  

Thank you to the talented Joseph Tan for second shooting this gorgeous wedding with me!
