This is one of my favorite wedding venues. The people who manage this old building have done an amazing job, not just keep the building in good condition, but not over-restoring it. The walls are preserved & show it’s age & history. When I first returned to the bay after collage & some years in Socal I learned that The Marin Headlands center for the arts have a program for fine artists. I desperately wanted to be a part of it, but not being a fine artist I had no idea how that was going to work out. Now I get to photograph weddings there! I’ve done a handful of them there now over the last few years, from when I use to 2nd shoot to now doing my own. It is always a treat to be in that space. And the exclusive chef, Katie Power’s food is amazing. It’s homey, classic, and seasonal. There are a lot of photos of the giant ceremony wreath by Loop flowers, I couldn’t help myself it’s beyond gorgeous. I’m curious who got to take it home? This was a fun loving couple with lots of family & friends from the east coast. And the touches of Irish heritage is lovely.
If I do say so myself, the photos from this SF city hall wedding turned out so cute! And I had so much fun with these two running around town. Here’s a sneak peak of W+M’s very SF wedding. And the amazing Fort Point was such a great location for photos. Can’t wait to add the photos from their reception at Wayfare Tavern.
I love that I get to connect with people over their pets. These two cuties are Nacho and Pinot. Mark + Marissa live in Sausalito, in a cozy place on the water. We also ventured into Marin headlands, and during the last bit of light Mark played a beautiful song he’d written about Marissa. It was such a treat, I’m a sucker for acoustic guitar music. Looking forward to their wedding in Calistoga later this year!
Here’s a sneak peak of a sweet wedding in the Presidio. We did the first look overlooking the marina, the ceremony at the lovely Swedenborgian church, then the reception at Foreign cinema.
This was just so sweet! Jaime & Alex had a lovely wedding at SF city hall. I do cry at weddings sometimes, I can’t help it. I don’t always know what people’s tears are about, but I know it’s about love and happiness. First it was Jamie who made me cry, with her Wynona Ryder eyes. Then it was Alex, when Jaime proposed to their daughter Izzy, which was beyond adorable. Izzy being a smart cookie took the opportunity to negotiate on a puppy, while Jaime was making her promises, ha. Jaime gave her a lovely gold monogrammed ring. This little girl is soo loved!
I love that we got to use this geometric mural, I’d been wanting to use for some time. It’s a simple design with a lovely calming color palette. The reception was at Cala in hayes valley. If you haven’t been there, the food is to die for. I love the rustic elements in the space & the ceramic light fixtures.
