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.
