Engagement Session in Presidio

It was December in San Francisco and the weather was gorgeous. It was a nice day to be out and about in the Presidio. Gigi and Manuel told me they were very shy in front of the camera but they did a great job being natural.
In the Presidio, there is a path called Lovers’ Lane which is a great walk among eucalyptus trees. The path was originally a three mile trail used by soldiers to visit their loved ones and families from the Presidio to the mission. The Wood Line, a configuration of eucalyptus branches among the trees created by Andy Goldsworthy right next to the Lovers’ Lane, is also a pretty fun and worthwhile spot to check out.
Of course there is no better way to end the evening than by taking some sunset pictures with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

Anita and Nick at the Berkeley Brazilian Room

I always enjoy shooting at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley. Not only is it a nice and cozy reception hall in Tilden Park but it also has some gorgeous spots to photograph next door at the Botanic Garden. I have known Anita for a very long time and it was a pleasure photographing her wedding. It is so happy to not only share the special day with her and Nick but to also provide her with memories of their momentous day.

Aurora and Ian Wedding at the Berkeley Brazilian Room

I love the Berkeley Brazilian Room as a wedding reception venue. It’s not too far away nestled in Tilden Park in Berkeley making it somewhat easy to get to. Best of all, there are great spots in the trees and garden area for portraits. As the morning fog cleared up, the sunny blue skies opened up just in time for the ceremony.

It makes my job much more enjoyable when I can see that the bride and groom are easy going and relaxed and can truly enjoy the special day. This was obvious from the start as the bride and groom started getting ready in the same hotel room! It’s also great to see when the guests are having a blast during the dancing as well as during… wait for it… flipcup, yes flipcup. This was the first wedding that I have photographed where flipcup was played and it was awesome.
