Richard + Courtney's Fort Mason Center Wedding

 

Richard and Courtney tied the knot at the Fort Mason Firehouse with a beautiful ceremony overlooking the water and Alcatraz. The firehouse was an industrial space with beautiful light falling in through the gridded windows. Although a breezy (to say the least) day by the water, the sun was out and shined down on their ceremony. The night ended with dancing by the water.

The bridesmaids dresses were custom made by a close friend, and each groomsmen (+woman) was to find their own bolo tie. Their dinner was catered by a close family friend who only caters for fun! And florals by Courtney’s father’s coworker, who is the head florist for Safeway. You could tell how much time and love from close friends and family was put into this wedding and what a great collaborative effort the day was. The laughter was lovely, white claws were downed (not sponsored), tears were cried, and overall the love was spread.

Venue: Fort Mason Center Firehouse

Just Love at the Palace of Fine Arts

 

I love when couples reach out just to shoot for the sake of their love for each other, no big milestone or event but just because. I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with Malia and even had the opportunity to shoot her senior portraits so was excited when she reached out again.

When we decided on the Palace of Fine Arts, I was stoked, I knew the light would be stunning. However, we made a rookie mistake of doing the session on a Saturday when there were a million people, not to mention a photographer meet up. Nonetheless we made do, it was a great session with beautiful light and Malia and Alex’s chemistry was undeniable!

 

Black Sands Beach Anniversary

 

What better way to celebrate a year of wins, losses, challenges, accomplishments, disagreements, and love. I spent an evening with Ann and Kilol at Black Sands Beach in Marin. They danced and spun, falling and laughing as the sun dipped behind the rocks, to commemorate the first of year of the rest of their life together.
