FloryPhoto_Eng_SanFrancisco01

One of my favorite things to do for a portrait session is walk through the streets of San Francisco so when Gee Hee asked to do just that I was excited, well…everything except for the last part of the day :)

FloryPhoto_Wedding_Mexico01I love Liz + Jason and I LOVED their wedding.  Liz is my sister-in-law and I couldn’t have been happier for her and Jason on their wedding day.  Enjoy these few pics and trust me, I will do a better job of blogging as I have so many great weddings from this year to share with you.  Be sure to catch the great family pic of us in there. On a side note all of these pics were processed w/VSCO Film which is a new processing tool for photographers I am involved with.

I cannot tell you what an honor it was to be asked to shoot Natalie and Seth’s wedding.  We have been working with Natalie for many years and her talent, creativity and style never cease to amaze us.  So when we got the call that they wanted us to shoot the wedding, we knew we were in for an incredible experience. Thank you Natalie and Seth for allowing us to capture your day. I have to give a huge shout out to my second shooters, Nirav and Shipra for helping me capture the day. Many thanks Amy Nichols for the excellent job coordinating the day and a very special thanks to the ladies at 100 Layer Cake for the feature. Be sure to check the end of the post for all of the nitty gritty details on Natalie and Seth’s big day.

001FloryPhoto_Elopement_SanFrancisco

I received a call from Julie on a Friday to see if I would be interested in photographing her Elopement on the Golden Gate Bridge the next day and I was like yes please! While it was beautiful blue skies out as I waited for them, in true San Francisco fashion the fog rolled in right as we walked out onto the bridge.  Instead of ruining it for them it just added another element to the story of the day.  Enjoy the photos and thank you so much Julie + Philipp for having me capture such an important moment in your lives.

001FloryPhoto_Wedding_Yountville_Bouchon

As a self proclaimed foodie, I won’t lie, when Michael + Amy emailed me about having their wedding at both Cotogna AND Bouchon my heart started beating a little faster. Throw in San Francisco City Hall and it was a dream come true.  Michael + Amy’s love for life, food and friends carried over in every aspect of the wedding.  One of my favorite details from their wedding were their invitations which were Bouchon Cookbooks with a personal letter enclosed and then wrapped in this Virginia Woolf quote: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” I also have to mention the staff at Bouchon. UNREAL. I have never seen a group of staff work so hard, from in the kitchen to the waitstaff to the bar, they were a well oiled machine and it was fitting that underneath every clock in the kitchen was their motto “sense of urgency”. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience to be back in the kitchen and watch Chef Michael and his team work.  Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to read Michael + Amy’s take on their wedding. Enjoy and if you haven’t already I highly recommend dinning at both of these amazing restaurants if you get the chance. p.s. be sure to check out their city hall & Cotogna photos here.

001FloryPhoto_Wedding_SanFrancisco_CityHall

Michael + Amy’s Wedding weekend was so amazing that I am having to blog it in two posts.  On Friday they had their ceremony at San Francisco City Hall followed by what was one of the most amazing meals ever at Cotogna.  The following day they held a very intimate dinner for family and friends at Bouchon in Yountville.  Be sure to check out the pics from Bouchon as well as words from the couple about details of their wedding.

001FloryPhoto_Wedding_CornerstoneGardens_SonomaThe thing that I remember most from Ei-Lun + Kirk’s Wedding were the vows.  Literally (said in Rachel Zoe fashion) every person there was crying as the two of them read their perfectly crafted vows.  Everything else that day spoke to their great love for family, food, travel and friends.  I knew when I met them that I would love them as they are even bigger foodies than I am and for those of you that know me you know that is very hard to do.  Sage Catering did a great job with the food and providing music for the day was one of my all time favorite wedding bands, Ever Music Group.  Alicia from Alicia K Designs helped execute the day to perfection. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to read about everyone involved in making their special day happen.  Lastly, if you haven’t already be sure to check out their Engagement photos here. Enjoy!

001FloryPhoto_Wedding_SanFrancisco

Few peoples family roots run as deep into San Francisco as Katie + John’s do. Their wedding celebrated not only their love, their family and their friends, but there was a sense of honoring their San Francisco heritage as well.  And did we mention these two (and their guests!)  know how to party? Thank you Katie and John for letting us be a part of your big day! As always we loved working with Dream a Little Dream Events & the flowers from A Simple Ceremony were stunning. This was the first ever wedding at One Leidesdorff and it was a perfect venue for their wedding. For a full list of vendors and more info about the wedding be sure to scroll down to the end of the post. Also, I want to give a big shout out to Nirav and Kelly for shooting with us at this wedding and a couple of the photos below are theirs.  Thanks you two.
