Emma

I had the wonderful opportunity last week to go take pictures of Emma at her home just after she woke up from a nap. I had such an enjoyable time hanging out with her and her parents Julia and Dan, and just as much fun editing the images the last week.  I love black and white, and some of my favorites of her are the b/w. Julia had the fantastic idea of taking some shots of all their hands together and I think the two images I included here are some of my favorite shots of the month. It  I’m also experimenting with the new image frames I worked up in Photoshop this morning. Let me know what you think.

Cheryl & Jeremy’s Berkeley Engagement Session

When we started setting up this photo-session I was excited to hear that Cheryl and Jeremy wanted to shoot in Berkeley, where they met hanging out on a lawn.  It’s special to me to take pictures in places that have emotional significance for the couple. We started out in the Berkeley Rose Garden, where we found a sweet old tree, and then moved over to the UC Berkeley campus. My favorite shots we took at the end of the day when we stumbled upon a funky door with its own little outside “hallway”.  I try to always look for unique spaces, and this immediately caught my eye. Cheryl and Jeremy were a blast, willing to enjoy the moment and have fun being playful together. A great success, you guys will have a great Tahoe wedding!

Eric & Carol’s Yerba Buena Gardens Engagement Shoot

Carol and Eric had a quite a hike to drive into San Francisco for their engagement pictures. It had been raining all week, but somehow we got an hour between showers and made the most of it. Its amazing how you can pick any given block in downtown San Francisco and find tens of great little nooks and crannies to shoot in. I particularly like the brick walls of Saint Patrick’s Church and the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and the great colors on the outside of the Yerba Buena Art Museum.  If you’re looking for a great place to shoot after a wedding check this location out! The colors and Eric and Carol’s fun together offset an otherwise somewhat gloomy day. After the shoot they also introduced me to Beard Papa’s cream puffs. Let’s just say the ones they sent with me didn’t make it home.   🙂

Tom & Jennifer’s Wedding: San Francisco City Hall

I met Jen and Tom a while back at a friends’ party, and was able to do an Anchor Brewing tour with Tom, who is a proficient brewer and Belgian ale coneseiur. Its been a blast to get to know them as a couple and I really enjoyed their wedding day just before Christmas. There are times when I am in the middle of taking pictures during a wedding when I am struck by how honored I am to be at such a special event in the lives of two people. This wedding was filled with those moments. They wanted to have a private ceremony at City Hall, which meant that it was just me, the justice of the peace, and the two of them who were able to witness their vows. After the ceremony we took some shots around City Hall and then headed over to Alamo Square Park and the Painted Ladies to finish off the wedding photos before they headed off to wine country. Thank you for allowing me to be part of such a special day.
