we are Mike and Nat,

husband and wife wedding photographers in the SF Bay Area. We are passionate about authentic moments and developing a great connection with each couple.

Thank you for being here. We hope that you stay awhile. Read more about us...

I’ll let you in on a secret: when we go to the weddings we cover we take many, many pictures. Shots of the wedding, of course, but once in a while we’ll also grab a quick shot or two of each other. We just can’t resist taking a photo if one of us looks particularly cute. Or especially funny. Or just plain ridiculous! :)

So here are some photos of us in action and behind-the-scene shots from last year. The good, the bad, and the funny:

The hardest thing during this shoot was not not to get my gear completely soaked:

Happy Monday everybody!
