Palace Hotel SF Wedding

We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph Karina and Michael’s wedding. Getting to know them for their Cavallo Point engagement photos gave us a good idea about how much they’re in love and we just loved spending time with them.

Karina and Michael’s wedding day was simply spectacular and it was inspiring to see how much work was done in preparation. The details were gorgeous and the emotions were keeping us excited throughout the wedding. We had the chance to visit two great photo spots in SF for their portraits and the rest of the day took place at the classic and timeless Palace Hotel.
