Lauren and Tom’s Big Fake San Francisco WeddingSan Francisco, CA

Lauren and Tom's Big Fake San Francisco Wedding
Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and Tom's wedding here in San Francisco. Here's a question for you, though... can you have a wedding if you're already married? The answer is definitely YES! Lauren and Tom had a vow renewal that was disguised as a wedding, thanks to The Big Fake Wedding. For those who don't know, The Big Fake Wedding is basically [...]

2016 Favorite Wedding Photos – Second Shooting

2016 Favorite Wedding Photos - Second Shooting
Every year, one of my favorite things to do is work with other wedding photographers as a second shooter. Not only do I get to hang out with some great people, but I pretty much always learn something as well. This year I mainly worked with two different Bay Area wedding photographers: Holly Drennen and Jeremy Hohengarten. Thanks to these two awesome people for trusti[...]

Kristen and David Got Married!
Kristen and David's San Jose wedding was my last of the year and I couldn't have hoped for a better grand finale to the 2016 wedding season. From the wonderful people to the beautiful venues to the amazing weather, weddings don't get much better than this.Kristen's ladies were so much fun to be around (as you can probably tell from the Bridesmaids-inspired photo) [...]

San Francisco City Hall Weddings

San Francisco City Hall Weddings
Ever since the first time I stepped foot in San Francisco's City Hall, I knew I wanted to photograph a wedding there. The architecture is just so grand and classic, it seems much more like a wedding venue than a government building.In the past few months, I've had the opportunity to photograph a couple of weddings at City Hall. The first was Guinnevere and Elise'[...]

Christine and Josh Got Married!San Francisco, CA

Christine and Josh Got Married!
When a couple is getting married and I'm photographing their wedding, I always try to meet with both of them before their wedding day. Typically this happens automatically, either during our initial meeting or at the engagement session. Every once in a while though, I'm meeting a bride or a groom for the first time on their wedding day. That's exactly how it happened [...]

Melisa and Evan Got Married!San Francisco, CA

Melisa and Evan Got Married!
Melisa and Evan's San Francisco wedding marked many firsts for me. Theirs was the first wedding I booked once moving out to SF. Theirs was both the first engagement session and wedding that I actually photographed right here in the city. And on a personal note, it was my first cable car ride! With all of these firsts, you'd better believe that I was pretty excited for[...]

2015 Favorite 2nd Shooting Photos

2015 Favorite 2nd Shooting Photos
I love being a second shooter at weddings. In the past, I averaged 2nd shooting 15-20 weddings per year. This year was a little different, though. Since I moved to San Francisco, I didn't know as many photographers, so I didn't get to 2nd shoot very often. Fortunately, the weddings I was able to be a 2nd for were pretty amazing! There were a few early season weddings [...]
