Mike and Roberta have been dating for roughly half their lives, all the way back to junior high, and chose to rock the 09/09/09 as their wedding day. One of the sweet aspects of their wedding was that all the events stayed within ten blocks of downtown San Francisco. From the Wickham Hotel (which briefly served as San Francisco’s city hall, City Hall, to Alamo Square, and back to the Wickham for the reception everything was right there. I could even take public transportation from my house and back. Great times, guys, cheers!
The Palace of Fine Arts has a ton of nooks and crannies that can make for fun pictures, while the size of the actual rotunda allows for some dramatic shots. Nichole and Brett were classy through the shoot, and had plenty of laughs for me to document. We were also lucky enough to have a relatively people-free beach on a beautiful evening. They’re also getting married at a georgeous winery, which makes their photographer very happy.
Welcome! It is my great joy and passion to take pictures and create beautiful images. I see this blog as an opportunity to exhibit current work and provide a more diverse record of images than you may find on my main site. You’ll find here the personal side of Matthias. But I also hope to do a little more with this. I would like to provide an educational opportunity and resource for couples and others interested in learning more about wedding photography, current styles and trends, and information on how to find the photographer that best matches your needs. In this vein I want to offer couples with tips on how to do their part to maximize their opportunity to get great pictures at their wedding. As I meet with couples to talk through their wedding day people are constantly asking me insightful questions. Here I have the opportunity to compile and fine-tune the answers, so that you can be equipped by the curiosity of others. Finally I see this as an opportunity to direct you to other photographers, vendors, and other websites to help you understand, appreciate, and make the most of wedding photography. Happy reading, thanks for joining in the journey.
