San Francisco City Hall Weddings, published on KQED Art...

I’m (apparently) focusing on published work this week, because I want to share this one next.  Just a quick blurb celebrating San Francisco City Hall’s 100 year anniversary (and the many, beautiful weddings there) on the KQED website’s arts page:

It’s true: I do love City Hall weddings!  If you’ve never had the chance to do some bureaucratic work at SF City Hall, find an excuse (you don’t even really need one) to pop in there soon.  It’s jaw droppingly gorgeous, especially for a municipal building.  I’m a BIG fan of getting married there – so much so, that Devon and I got married there 10 years ago this December! – and so much so that I’m putting together a special, SF City Hall elopement photography package, JUST for this particular spot.  If you’re thinking at all about skipping the big wedding plans, and budget, and trappings, and fuss, I highly recommend grabbing just your favorite Sunday clothes, a few wildflowers, a best friend to witness, and your friendly local photographer to capture it all.  You can always have a party later.

Happy eloping!  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

On the Snippet & Ink Best Wine Country Weddings Li...

What a nice surprise!  I was cruising through Snippet & Ink’s “Best Wine Country Weddings” list, and found one of “my” weddings!  Christina and Ben’s romantic, purpley wedding at BR Cohn was a really beautiful one, and Snippet & Ink is one of the very prettiest, highest quality wedding style blogs out there.   So, yay!  That was a lovely thing to stumble across.

Much of the reason this wedding was such an awesome one was thanks to the fantastic team of A Savvy Event’s planning and styling, and Nancy Liu Chin’s flowers.  Kelly and Nancy have a lot of exuberance and excellent taste, and they work so well together.

(I mean, plus these guys are super sweet:)

I’ve got some more beautiful weddings coming up for more pretty publication, so check back soon! xo

(I love that image because you can see the sweet details of the seating chart, but also the big stainless steel tanks behind – BR Cohn is a working vineyard/ winery, and I’ve been there when they’re in the middle of harvest and crush, regardless of a wedding going on!  It’s not distracting, but it adds a little something rad and authentic to the event – this is wine country, after all.)

Michelle and Tom’s Kunde Winery wedding featured ...

I recently realized that I’ve been a “Little Black Book” preferred vendor with Style Me Pretty since 2008!  That’s almost since the beginning, and means I’m one of the first of their special photographers.  I feel special! :)  And I feel ‘Pretty’!  (Heh.)

So!  Here’s a wedding of mine that they recently featured on their “California” blog.  Michelle and Tom’s wedding was at one of my very favorite (and most often photographed) venues, Kunde Family Winery, in Kenwood.  This place rocks, and has such perfect light, backdrops, views, and staff, that I never get sick of shooting there.  It’s gorgeous anytime of the year.  The wine is delicious, and the views are amazing 360 degrees around: no kidding!  It’s very special to me, and my work there has been featured on Style Me Pretty many times before – so I’m stoked to have it showcased again!
