Katie and John have such great chemistry and I loved the energy at their wedding. John rocked the bow tie and Katie was stunning in her Amsale dress. I knew after their engagement session that we were going to have a blast roaming the streets of San Francisco and Golden Gate Park and boy did we ever.  Some of my favorite pics came at sunset on the roof top of the City Club so be sure to scroll down to see those. I loved all the details from John’s custom bow tie and custom cuff links to their cake topper and map of San Francisco for their guest book.  I should also add that I LOVED working with Curtis Nemetz and Natalie Bowen as always. Curtis pushes me to see things from a different angle and my photos are better because of it, thanks Curtis! Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see Curtis’s video from the day along with Katie and John’s recap of the day with information on all the vendors and details and their advice to other couples planning their wedding.

I truly think the pictures for this wedding fully tell the story of this fun loving, vibrant couple. Marta and Nathan were married at Hacienda de las Colinas, a private residence in Marin, and it was the perfect setting for their wedding . Their wedding was filled with TONS of incredible DIY elements; from the favors (handmade truffles anyone?) and table decor to the cakes made by a close friend. It was truly a celebration that felt incredibly personalized to the couple. I LOVED Marta’s blue Christian Louboutin’s and was a big fan of the Precedent Pinot Noir which Nathan is the winemaker for (I highly recommend picking up a bottle or two or heck, even a case:).  We had a blast as always shooting with the incredible Curtis Nemetz Productions and Natalie Bowen did a great job as always with the flowers. Make sure to check the bottom of the post for insight from Marta herself and to get the full list of all the vendors and last but not least, be sure to check out their highlights film from Curtis.

Blog Widget by LinkWithinJulie and Matt’s wedding was featured on Brooklyn Bride today.  You can view the post here.  Julie wrote a great story about how they met and details of the day so you have to head over there to read it.  Again I want to give a special shout out to Jon of Encarnacion Photography and Curtis and Travis from Curtis Nemetz Productions as these guys helped me out a ton and I thoroughly loved working with them.  If you haven’t viewed their video yet, check out the original blog post and scroll to the bottom, I promise you won’t be deisappointed. Also, that ring shot with the sushi that everyone loves…that was Jon!  Anyways, we are in Cabo for a wedding this weekend and then off next week to Seattle to do a photo shoot for a clothing company.  I will be sure to post photos of both along with some amazing recent engagement, family and portraits sessions.  Be sure to check back!

Blog Widget by LinkWithinWhere do I even begin with this? First off, hang in there with me as this is going to be a long post…but how else do you do justice to one of the most amazing weddings? Julie and Matt’s wedding was the first ever at the all new Yoshi’s Jazz Club in SF which is one of my new favorite spots for a wedding in San Francisco.  Seriously, the place was made for weddings.  Throw in working with my favorite videographers, Curtis and Travis of Curtis Nemetz Productions, and then Jon of Encarnacion Photography and Curtis as my second shooters and I had the dream team working with me. Cara was at home with our beautiful 3 week old daughter and while I really missed shooting with her, Jon and Curtis stepped it up and we didn’t miss a beat.  All of the printed details from the day were designed by Abbie of Passing Notes (See previous post for more details) and I was blown away with the quality.  For all couples out there looking for custom designed invitations, programs, and everything else, be sure to hire Abbie as her work is second to none. Matt owns a shoe store in Alameda, District, and the whole wedding had a shoe theme from their cake, invites, seat place holders and so on.  Julie’s dress by Junko Yoshioka was stunning and her jewelry by Renee Pawlee well, was stunning also, but my favorite thing even over Matt’s van’s was the cake.  I have never seen a cake that was even close to being as cool as this one by Debbie Does Cakes.  Enjoy all of the photos and you can view more photos here and you can view their engagement photos here.  Lastly, be sure to make it all the way to the bottom of the post where you can view their highlights video along with a video from their first dance. One more thing… here are some kind words from Julie and Matt:

We’re back. I can’t stop looking at the photos, watching the videos and bawling all at the same time. There aren’t enough words to describe our love and appreciation for you, Jon, Curtis and Travis. Want to do it all over again? Haha. Wish I could relive it everyday. Makes me want to start my own wedding planning business for sure. We were truly blessed to have such a talented and supportive team working with us! Can’t imagine the big day without you.

Big hugs!
Julie

I never got a chance to thank you personally for all your help on the day of the wedding. Man, you are a real pro. If I remember correctly (the big day is really all a blur now), it was during dinner when someone needed water or soda water - maybe because Julie had a spot on her dress or something? - that I saw you bolt over to a waiter and grab a glass and come to the rescue. It was at that point when I thought to myself, damn, this guy’s good. Haha.

Seriously though, I wish you nothing but the best with your career and budding family. And thank you again for all your hard work and preparation. You really helped make our day special.

Thanks,
Matt
