We’ve had people ask if we ever get tired of shooting at San Francisco’s beautiful City Hall and to be quite honest, we don’t. People might think that the shots are usually the same but every couple is so different, that their personalities bring out a different set of images each time. Take Ann and David for example, they started the morning off by helping each other get ready with their closest friends helping with hair and makeup, and tying up any other loose ends. When Ann put on her dress, David and we were in complete awe. Her dress seemed to capture the classic surroundings of city hall. And her veil, oh goodness that long veil that caught the wind so perfectly, like a feather floating to the ground.
They followed their nuptials with an after party right in their San Francisco backyard and instead of cutting the cake, they started the party off with a prosciutto slab cutting. Nom Nommm!
We love Joann and Ken! Besides them being one of the most adorable couples we’ve worked with, they were so comfortable in front of the camera that their special day was a breeze to shoot and a great experience. I remember showing up at city hall and Joann was all smiles, wearing a beautiful white dress and holding a giant bouquet of yellow roses that really added to her simple elegance. They both nailed every shot and direction I threw at them and we had a lot of fun. It felt like a real celebration, and it was great to share the day with them. Joann and Ken also surprised me when they asked me to sign as their witness, and I am so honored. Joann’s mom even jokes and says I’m part of the family now 🙂
Three cheers and many kisses to come for Joann and Ken! We can’t wait to see them again for their big day early next year!
