Courtenay + John

Courtenay and John were married earlier in June this year but decided to throw on the wedding attire and run around again for some fun photos in San Francisco. We started on Mission Street and made our way downtown stopping first at the owl bar before heading to the Hotel Triton. What other photo shoot can I invent so i can keep working with you guys! So much FUN! oh - yeah - KIDS!

Aaron + Cate

The day started at the St. Francis hotel, a landmark in union square and the heart of downtown San Francisco. Aaron and Cate really wanted photos in the city and what a great backdrop
it provided. We set out through Union square, dropped into a few alleys and headed to The Regency where they had their ceremony and party. The wonderful crew at Leftwich Events, the fancy red baroque-style decor of this venue and the 6 piece band, really made the evening feel timeless like attending a fancy dinner party in the 1940's.

This year was filled with great clients and Carly and Ryan are absolutely among them. It was a beautiful weekend in Seattle and they choose to have an intimate ceremony and dinner with family and friends on Friday followed by a photo shoot around town and reception/party on saturday. Admittedly - a great way to do it.

Melissa + Larry

What a wonderful day to get hitched in San Francisco. Melissa and Larry had a beautiful and intimate ceremony in Golden Gate Park. It was a perfect location. The trees surrounded the perimeter of the ceremony site which made it feel secluded yet within walking distance, we had access to the parks main center. We took advantage of both the architecture and landscape. Larry was a bit shy at first but broke out of that quickly and it shows in these lovely photos below. They ended the night with dinner and drinks at Bacar. YOu guys rock!

Cecily + Brendan

The Brazilian Room at Tilden Park in Berkeley, CA. is a great place to get hitched. Lovely views and the sweet smell of eucalyptus to boot. Cecily and Brendan wanted to have their ceremony outdoors on the patio. Afterwords we took advantage of all the open space for fun formal shots. The inside dining area was uniquely decorated with vinyl records as place matting and an on-site photo-booth could take snaps for guests throughout the evening. Fun party guys!

anna + mike } clark, colorado.

oh where to start ....i must say that individually mike and anna are just awesome people. They are both creative, generous, witty and definitely goofy. Together they are an explosion of fun. For example, they love to jump. they love to sing and dance and play the ukulele. they also drink whiskey on rainy days, especially their own. .... wedding day.
I've learned to read people pretty well spending all this time with them on their big day. You never quite know how things will unfold (or how couples will react) when the itinerary becomes a piece of scrap paper or a shield against the elements. Needless to say anna and mike's wedding day was full of all kinds of "fun" little surprises ( and if you couldn't tell already i use 'fun' as in crazy, impulsive and/or unpredictable). By noon we were on to plan "d" and not once, and here's my point to all this, was there a fuss, a ruckus or scene of any sort. not once. even when it almost snowed in August. Admittedly, if placed in a similar scenario i can't say for sure i'd come out the better person. But they were a team. making decisions on the fly, laughing and jumping around when they had the chance. like i said - a big explosion of fun. cheers you two. and big hugs to all of your wonderful family and friends. hope to see you soon!

katie + brian } engagement

This was one of my only photos shoots in Pullman, Wa and now that I'm moving to Portland this weekend I'm quite happy I was able to have the opportunity. Katie and Brian we're easy and super willing to go the extra distance; like laying down in the middle of a wheat field by some derelict train tracks. we did get in trouble for that by the way but not before we got the shots.
