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.
Karina’s mom Natasha was helping her get ready.
Love finding dynamic moments of people in action.
Michael’s groomsmen were so much fun! Thanks for really enjoying yourselves, guys.
Can you believe the guys’ took longer to be ready than the girls? ;)
We LOVE emotions and this candid moment right after the First Look was so touching.
Karina and her ladies were so beautiful and a blast to photograph.
Guys knew just what to do.
I can see why the Palace of Fine Arts is one of Michael’s favorite spots in the city.
LOVE playing with interesting light.
And it was windy!
The champagne was flowing as we headed back to the Palace Hotel SF wedding.
This is what I saw facing one way during the processional…
And when I turned around I saw this.
Michael’s brother made a killer toast.
I have a feeling the Horah was fun for everyone except maybe the bride :)
Michael’s brother Colman!
And almost everyone was having a blast :)
Congratulations, Karina and Michael! Your wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful.
P.S. Thank you SO much to Vitaliy Prokopets for joining me to photograph this beautiful wedding. It was a great pleasure working with you.
