Mikaela and Jordan hail from Austin, Texas and stopped in San Francisco for our session atop Mt. Tam before driving up north for their Northwest Tour. They are a lovely and down to earth couple and Indie folk duo.
It was a cold day in San Francisco, and as we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge we were nervous about the heavy cloud coverage. But as we drove up towards the top we were greeted by the sun and found ourselves above the thick layer of clouds. To our surprise, we caught a warm evening on Mt. Tam as these two shared stories of where they are from, how they met, and even some travel tips. We watched the sun dip over the horizon, creating the perfectly colored sky before checking for ticks and hoping back in the car to make the trek back down.

Emily and Jason got married a few weeks ago at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley which overlooked the entire Bay Area. Their ceremony was short and sweet with the beautiful sweeping view as the backdrop. They transitioned into cocktail hour that glowed from golden hour. Their wedding was catered with UNLIMITED ice cream, and they did a "first scoop" instead of cake cutting. They ended the night with dancing, surrounded by their closest friends and family.
These two have been together for ten years, and are parents to two cats, and a dog, Tibbers, Luna, and Dino. I grew up with Emily in church and went to the same high school as both Emily and Jason. It was an honor to be able to capture this extremely kind and loving couple's special day.
