Raissa + Brian – Marin Headlands Wedding – Mt. Tamalpais Wedding – San Francisco Wedding Photographer

The door opened at the cafe, and when I looked up from my hot cocoa, we both smiled and let out a quick chuckle. Now, thinking back on the phone call I received from Brian, apologizing that they’d be a bit late for our meeting, of course that’s why his voice was familiar in some distant way. As it was, Brian just happened to once upon a time live one floor above me in the same dorm room some (many) years ago at Cal Poly SLO.  “Out of all the gin joints in all the world…”  But yeah, it is a damn small world.

So the world is small, but it’s also enormous.  It’s full of wild encounters, amazing people, and endless stories.  Today Raissa and Brian wrote their own story, on their terms. They tied their own knot, literally, as a symbol of their bond.  Their wedding ceremony was intimate, love-filled, comedic at times (horse-radish!), and honest.  I am honored to have been a part of it. What follows are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
