San Francisco City Hall is a magical place that is always humming during business hours with the people’s work. It also has a continuous flow of tourists soaking in all of it’s architectural grandiosity, with an added spark of lovers eloping or having small weddings with friends and family. It’s a beautiful energy. Had a lovely time with Mais and Ashley as they got the full City Hall wedding treatment with these fun and adorable portraits, a great judge that added depth and wisdom to the ceremony, with their best friends at their side. Adding to this singular happening was a group of sightseers, straight off of the tour bus, gazing and adding their love and encouragement to the newly weds. It was amazing. Check it out.
Martina, Geoff, Sunny the Pug, and I had a fun and fog filled engagement session at Fort Funston in the southwest corner of San Francisco. The day was a quintessential San Francisco day, cool yet comfortable, and the fog gave us it’s magical embrace at ground level. We chatted, hiked, chased Sunny, and watched hand gliders float over us, and generally had a nice time taking photos together. Enjoy the cuteness.

Natalie and Ben are two savants that found each other at an early age. They are really sweet together and super cerebral on a wide range of disciplines. For instance during our engagement session I was able to see their relationship and minds work in playful, as well as intellectual ways. They both work in math and science based fields, but can easily go in-depth on plant anatomy and then seamlessly shift into politics at a high level. They will poke fun and laugh at another’s infinitesimally small neglected detail on a concept. Super cute. Anyway, their wedding was a perfect combination of their personalities and the fusion of traditional jewish wedding customs with the modern world. At one point there was a wedding shtick where guests entertained and bemused the bride and groom with stunts, tricks and performances. What!? It was fun and lots of smiles were to be found. Enjoy.
