It’s an editor’s nightmare I tell you! There were so many amazing photos from Lindsay and Aaron’s wedding, I had trouble cutting it down. But… since it’s my blog, I can do whatever I want with it! So get ready for a ton of photos, but it’s well worth the extra cruising time. Anyway, blah blah blah, this wedding was super fun and crazy love filled. These two are such sweethearts. I just melted watching them grace each other for the first time, all gussied up on their big day. They took turns crying! He is definitely her lobster… whatever that means?! I know, I know, it’s a Friends reference, but I would need to watch the episode to brush up on the history. But you know, it’s great to see people so in sync with each other. Makes life down the road that much easier! Here’s wishing you guys a smooth sailing, loved filled and blessed life.
Tina and Derek made their way from NYC to the west coast with not a minute to spare. Late to catch their flight and stuck in traffic, they feared the worst. Arriving at the airport they found their plane delayed, and as luck would have it, was just starting to board. I tell you, there is something to this wedding magic business. We met inside City Hall on a gorgeous fall day. The building was fairly empty and the ceremony went smoothly (I mean, they’re like 5 minutes, so what could go wrong?). The only hiccup the entire day was on me. I somehow lost track of my car in the Tenderloin, and spent the better part of 20 minutes running past crack heads, homeless people, and pushers in my dress shoes. I passed one guy a few times and he showered me with praise with phrases like, “Run young blood, run!” or my favorite, “There he go again!” Replace “young blood” with Forest and I think we have a better match. In the end, I finally found my car (actually it’s an ’84 VW Westfalia – which makes it way more important than any old car), and returned to Tina and Derek red-faced and out of breath. But the light was perfect, so we grabbed a few more frames outside the building. Take a look for yourself!
You want great photographs? Go to great places, and bring your imagination. A fairly great place would happen to be our backyard: San Francisco. So when Lisa and David contacted me to photograph their very impromptu ceremony at SF’s City Hall, I happily obliged. Ahhhh, the possibilities… There are so many possibilities, and then on top of that, more possibilities. From the architecture, light, and people, one can get fairly overwhelmed when trying to narrow down the options. When in doubt, I try to take my own advice – go with the moment, listen to your gut, and rock it!
Hope you enjoy!
