Wedding Anniversary Portraits in San Francisco: Jamie and Ben

We recently had a very special opportunity to retake a couple’s wedding day portraits. Their original wedding photographer did not show up and we were so honored when we were asked to retake those photos (and replace the past memories).

Jamie and Ben scheduled their session with us over half a year ago so it happens right on their two-year anniversary. It was a great pleasure to create these natural portraits and we had a blast getting to know this lovely couple.

Some favorites:

We had the chance to use a 1950′s Morgan for this portrait session.

UPDATE: We love hearing feedback from our clients and it’s always a great feeling when they’re happy. We just received the following from Jamie:

Dear Mike & Nat,

You guys are sooooo talented and captured so many beautiful moments between us in such natural and beautiful ways – simply WOW! I am so so grateful to you both for making this dream of ours come true and really righting a wrong that was done to us with respect to the photographer who didn’t show up to our wedding.

Natural Wedding Photos at The Mountain Winery and Dynasty – Lori and Alex

Lori and Alex’s wedding day was full of great stories and intimate moments. One of the first things we usually hear in the morning of is that the bride and groom didn’t sleep very well – they’re so anxious. When we first saw Lori, we found out that she actually overslept a bit and there was even a small delay with starting the makeup :) We were glad to see them so relaxed and to allow the day to just happen naturally.

Lori and Alex were really psyched about their portraits and picked out some amazing locations for their wedding photos. We started off at the Cypress Hotel, headed to the Hakone Gardens, and continued to The Mountain Winery for the ceremony. Posed and unposed, it was awesome to see them having fun and really enjoy being intimate in front of our cameras.

Nat and I were both digging the light during the preparations:

It was especially touching to see Alex get emotional during the ceremony vows. We could just feel how much these moments were affecting both of them:

Allied Arts Guild Wedding Photos in Menlo Park – Feng and Kevin

We were excited to come back to the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park recently for the wedding of Feng and Kevin. This lovely couple is from the East coast and met while attending school here. They picked a gorgeous Mediterranean venue that not many people have heard of for their special day – the Allied Arts Guild. We love how it’s full of hydrangeas, roses, and carefully manicured landscapes throughout. This was a perfect match to Feng and Kevin’s intimate wedding.

We felt very lucky to have clouds providing beautiful light:

The cocktail hour was a great, relaxed time for people to mingle while enjoying some poolside hors d’oeuvres:
