Sara & Scott
I love shooting in the Bay Area because my family is there. Usually my sister is my second shooter when I work there, and we always have a ball together! We shot Sara and Scott’s wedding at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Because I am on the preferred vendor list and end up shooting quite a few weddings there, I’m constantly looking for ways to make each wedding unique. I grabbed a shot of Sara looking out the huge windows on the mezzanine of the hotel. And I love the motion in the shot with Sara and Scott dancing in front of the hotel.
Shooting with Joy just makes the wedding that much more fun for me!!
elena and matt
Elena and Matt met in film school and decided to use their mutual love of movies as the theme to their wedding. It was a cool idea complete with their name in lights on the ballroom wall!
The flowers by Nancy Liu Chin were unbelievably gorgeous which certainly makes my job easier!
I have shot at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel quite a few times, so I’m constantly trying to come up with something creative and different for each wedding there. I like the shot of Elena and Matt kissing outside of the hotel with all the cars passing by. Here are a few of my favorites from the day:
michelle & dakin
I drove down to the charming Coto De Caza for Michelle and Dakin’s wedding. What a cool place! Three Arch Catering is owned by the lovely Cynthia Sieloff who was really great to work with.
In lieu of a veil, Michelle wore a hip flower in her hair. She was quite the stylish bride and provided parasols for all of her girls!
Coto de Caza has a cute little park, and I was really excited to get some fun shots there. I was thrilled that Michelle and Dakin were so willing to be playful and we got some great shots!
