Sarah & Mike’s Wedding

Sarah and Mike meet in Washington DC but having been raised in the Bay Area, Sarah opted to tie the knot at the venerable Flood Mansion. We spent a good amount of time going to the classic San Franciso hot spots for portraits with the entire wedding party. Sarah was a natural in front of the camera and express her inner model while joggers ran by at the Lyons street steps. Mike was quite charming as well but in that east coast tough guy kind of way! By the end of the night, they enjoyed a gorgeous sunset on the balcony of the Flood Mansion and everyone had a rocking time on the dance floor.

Heyzap Portraits

I photograph executive portraits all the time, and most of the time the subjects aren’t as fun as these two fine gentlemen from Heyzap. Both co-founders were from London and had been friends since their childhood days. Anytime the subjects have a bit of history together, it’s always much easier for them to cut lose and have a bit of fun with the photo shoot. They were telling me that they went through a bunch of co-founder portraits and how much they wanted to look as good as the other ones! These images weren’t necessarily my favorite selects from the shoot but since our post-production team did a fine job on the client’s selection, I thought I would post them anyway.

Kim & Daniel

You probably can’t tell that Daniel doesn’t enjoy having his photography taken but luckily my charm won him over. It’s rarely easy for guys to be in front of the camera and Daniel was no exception but Kim and I (with help from their dog), made sure he had some fun being a fashion model. PDA (Public Displays of Affections) is a skill set that most guys don’t have but I always tell them doing the engagement session that they’re getting a valuable free lesson from me! Anyway, we went to Cavallo Point of the first part of the shot and then roll down the street to a nice panoramic area near the yacht club.

Mitzi Jo & Howard

Mitzi and Howard are from the fabulous kingdom of LA. They opted to celebrate their love in the heavenly realm of San Francisco in the always adorable Shakespeare Garden in Golden Gate Park. Friends from all over the US flew in to join them in this very intimate affair. While Mitzi’s son was passionate about breaking the glass after the ceremony, I was reminded of my own commitment vows to my wife’s kids. It’s not easy being a step father but now I guess i have the honor of being both.

Erin & Matthew

Erin and Matt got married in late April, and throughout the day I was praying that my wife wouldn’t go into labor! Luckily, the baby came a month later and the day went without a hitch. The entire wedding was at the Flood Mansion and the set up was extraordinary, as I recognized many of the top vendors in the industry working there. Erin and Matt were one of the most low key clients I’ve worked with and I appreciated the fact they were so hands off throughout the wedding. Erin was simply gorgeous and naturally photogenic. Matt started the day a little nervous (who wouldn’t be!) but his natural smile came out when things got started. One of the most humorous speeches I have ever heard came from the Maid of Honor, Erin’s sister, where she compared the similarities between their respective backgrounds in the form of a top 10 list.
