• I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based in San Francisco and Boston. I work with a mix of film and digital photography at weddings in order to achieve a beautifully crafted collection of final images, that truly documents the beauty and energy of your wedding day. Thanks for stopping by and have a peek at some recent weddings and photo shoots below!

As much as we photographers love a traditional wedding at an incredible venue with painstakingly prepared design elements, intimate nuptials at City Hall will always hold a special place in our hearts. I can’t make this statement enough; we have a beautiful City Hall in San Francisco. When you consider the cost of getting married in such a beautiful space, well, let’s face it…it’s a deal.

Chloe and Andrei wanted to have a traditional wedding with their friends and family but with intense work schedules, they knew they wouldn’t be able to do so for another year or two. Not wanting to wait two years though, they decided on an intimate elopement at City Hall until they could have a big party with their loved ones. I love photographing these weddings. It’s like getting back to basics. Just two people, committing to spend the rest of their lives together. I also love how getting married at City Hall allows a couple to embrace their style. Chloe and Andrei just have this confidently classic style. For her something old, Chloe wore a beautifully delicate brocade that belonged to her Grandmother. Andrei was also passionate about having film photography…so a million bonus points to him!

Whenever I think of winter weddings I think of snow. I’m from Buffalo, so, it’s natural. But we would NEVER get snow in San Francisco, EVER. Don’t worry, I’m not complaining. Claire and Geoff’s winter wedding was on a beautiful sunny day at the end of December and was special for many reasons (aside from the no snow in December!). Claire is from Ireland, so most of her family and friends traveled so many miles to be here for their celebration. They live in North Beach and were married at their local church, Saint Peter and Paul. I don’t get to photograph ceremonies in churches too often, and it was amazing to shoot in such a beautiful space that was a part of their everyday life. We walked around their neighborhood afterwards, and took photos in front of some of their favorite places (like Goorin Brothers!) and with their adorable pup Harvey. We were then invited to the top of the church for photos at sunset. Then it was off to Claire’s family’s bar, Danny Coyles, for their reception! Can I just say, having your wedding at a bar…not a bad idea, whether it’s family owned or not. Congratulations again Claire and Geoff, I’m so glad I got to work with you guys!

Where to have your engagement session…you can’t go wrong with a local farm! For Christine and Jake’s session, we headed to Tara Firma Farms in Petaluma. This must have been the most relaxing engagement session EVER! And bonus, we got to pick up fresh eggs, bacon, bbq and delicious vegetables on our way out. A huge thanks to Tara Firma for hosting us…if you’re ever looking for something to do on the weekend, I would highly recommend checking out their free tours on Saturdays and Sundays, so cool! Make sure you head over to The Wedding Chicks to check out Christine and Jake’s feature…I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!
