Hollie & Xavier's Engagement
San Francisco, CA
Sometimes things go wrong.
No matter how much you plan, check and double-check, there will always be that one time when something goes terribly wrong and my job as a photographer is to turn it into a beautiful photo anyway. This definitely applies to wedding photos, but engagement shoots should be a bit easier, right? Not in this case.
Hollie and Xavier are a wonderful couple who live in Tennessee, but flew to San Francisco for a weekend with a single task in mind, to have engagement photos taken. It rained, all weekend long. What started out as a casual San Francisco drizzle turned into an outright storm on the night of their shoot. The rain was literally coming down at a 45 degree angle, but canceling wasn't an option, we had to make it work. Soaked, tired, but happy, we walked away with what's by far one of my favorite engagement photos of the year and I couldn't be more thankful to Xavier and Hollie for letting me go through with it. You guys are amazing and I can't wait to shoot your wedding in Atlanta!
Carolyn & Colin's Wedding
Palace of Fine Arts & San Francisco Film Centre, San Francisco, CA
It's always a treat to shoot at one of San Francisco's iconic landmarks. It's even more of a treat when our clients love this city as much as we do. Colin and Carolyn's wedding at the Palace of Fine Arts was classy, gorgeous and downright freezing! This bride and groom hardly noticed the cold however, while voicing their vows to each other among family and friends.
Our favorite part of the night was Carolyn and Colin's debut on the dance floor at the San Francisco Film Centre. As a ballroom dancer, Carolyn showed off her graceful and elegant choreography with Colin as her perfect partner. It was quite a sight to see their guests (many of whom were ballroom dancers as well) showing off their fancy footwork alongside the bride and groom. It was hard not to find a great moment of dancing with this crowd and capturing it was an amazing experience. Congratulations Colin and Carolyn, your wedding was beautiful and we feel extremely privileged to have been there to capture it!
