Curry-Hwang San Mateo Family Portraits

Christmas is always a great time to get the family together for portraits, but it doesn’t mean you have to go into a studio and sit with perfect posture in your holiday sweaters (unless that’s your thing). I went out with Jamie, Sinclair and Audrey to a nearby park and captured some quality family time. I remember photographing Audrey a few months after she was born and now she’s already running around. It’s amazing how fast babies grow up.

Rachel and Jennifer: Marin Center For The Arts Wedding

San Francisco Marin Arts Center Wedding Photography (12)

When Rachel and Jennifer first approached me about shooting their wedding, I was a little nervous and a lot excited. I enjoy taking on new challenges and capturing my first same sex wedding in a way deserving of those who’ve overcome many barriers and obstacles to get there was one I was eager to take on. With the perfectly timed fall of Proposition 8, Rachel and Jen took their vows in front of a warm group of friends and family at the Marin Center for the Arts, an old military... Read The Rest →

Katja and Martin: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Katja and Martin San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography (8)

I’m kicking off my return from a recent around the world trip with a beautiful City Hall wedding. I never get tired of shooting here. The lighting is soft, the architecture is timeless and there’s always so much energy as a number of wedding parties wait around for their ceremony. I met Katja and Martin on the steps of City Hall along with their beautiful little girl, Juli, before heading to the Rotunda for the ceremony. Usually City Hall weddings are smaller affairs witness by just close friends or family.... Read The Rest →

Sean and Kelsey: San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers Wedding

Top San Francisco Wedding Photography Conservatory of Flowers (1)

This is one of my favorite weddings I’ve shot this year. Sure the couple was gorgeous, the girls rocked the entire color spectrum in their dresses, the guys pounded PBR cause it’s classy like that and everything from their invitations to the location was just plain awesome. But above all that, there was a straight up giant Tyrannosaurus Rex to boot. How many weddings have you gone to where you can have drinks under a T-Rex’s butt? Grab a beverage, sit back and take your time to browse through the... Read The Rest →

Rachel and Adam: Marine’s Memorial Club Wedding

Best San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photography (29)

I first met up with Rachel and Adam in the Presidio where we did an engagement session with gorgeous weather. I joined up with the couple again on their big day at San Francisco’s Marine’s Memorial Club and Hotel. It was certainly an interesting day of shooting that included a Gangnam Style tribute dance, an unexpected addition to the wedding party, and a particularly interesting advice from the best man to tuck the dress shirt into the underwear to keep it well in place. You learn something new everyday. While... Read The Rest →

Ko and Yuki: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Best San Francisco City Hall Presidio Wedding Photography (18)

Weddings bring people from all over together. Some drive, others require a flight. In this case, Yuki’s family flew over from Japan to see her wed to Ko and then to enjoy a lot of meat at a Brazilian Charrascaria afterwards. I’ve eaten quite a number of delicious wedding dinners, but I can’t help but admire the simplicity in having a reception where the bride and groom doesn’t have to plan the menu, there’s something for everyone, and you can go back for seconds, and thirds — in fact, it’s...

Sven and Tove: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography (3)

I met Sven and Tove approximately 15 minutes before their ceremony walking through City Hall. The immediate reaction from the couple was one of extreme relief — that their photographer who they’ve corresponded mostly with via email back in Sweden, actually showed up to shoot their wedding. As it turned out, we were just waiting for each other at opposite entrances to City Hall. I reassured them that I in fact was a real photographer and that they didn’t travel all this way from Sweden to be married without someone... Read The Rest →

Tanya and Surya: Golden Gate Park Engagement Session

San Francisco Golden Gate Park Engagement Photography (28)

When Tanya and Surya first met at a friend’s party, they spent the night together…Tanya in her bed, and Surya on the couch. C’mon people, this is a PG movie. As the story would go, Tanya’s roommate had invited Surya to her party in hopes of introducing the pair. Her plan worked and the next day, the two had lunch together. The rest, as they say, is history. For their engagement session, we braved the cold and explored Golden Gate Park. Weather forecast said 73 and sunny. Actual weather was... Read The Rest →

Aine and James: University Club San Francisco Wedding

San Francisco University Club Wedding Photography (28)

I love all things Irish. Leprechauns. Guinness. Meat and Potatoes. I even know the first six lines of the country’s national anthem in Gaelic. So when Aine and James asked if I would shoot their wedding, I only had one question before saying yes: “Will you be dancing to the Dropkick Murphys?” Aine and James celebrated at the San Francisco University Club with friends and family flying in from as far as Ireland and Scotland. They themselves flew in from New York for the big day. I took a cab... Read The Rest →

Clare and Jason: SF City Hall Wedding

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography Portraits (36)

A lot of people say they love San Francisco, but every so often you get a stronger confirmation that you live in an awesome city. Of all the places where a couple can fly to for a wedding, Clare and Jason chose to come to SF to get married at City Hall. And why not. The building is gorgeous, the restaurant scene is a foodie’s paradise, and the weather is…well, the weather is unpredictable, but if you’ve saved up enough karma points for your wedding day, then it can be...

Rachel and Adam: Presidio Engagement Session

San Francisco Presidio Engagement Photography (14)

Spring’s here along with the Spring wedding season. I’m kicking it off with a new set of engagement photos of Rachel and Adam. Although we had a bit of a panic thanks to the poor weather forecasts from the SF news stations leading up to the shoot, we lucked out and ended up with a beautiful day in San Francisco. Rachel warned me about her being camera shy before the shoot, but you could hardly tell from the photos. I’ve always believed that if there’s good chemistry between a couple,... Read The Rest →

Aine and James: Golden Gate Park Engagement Session

San Francisco Golden Gate Park Engagement Photography (10)

Happy 2012. Here’s my first engagement post of the year. It’s a little late coming due to the release of my travel video, but here we are. Over the holidays, Aine and James flew into San Francisco from New York where they had just relocated to from London. Still following? We got together the day after the Christmas and shot their engagement session in Golden Gate Park. No matter how many times I shoot there, there never seems to be a shortage of new places to explore. This time, I... Read The Rest →
