Leading up to Olga and Misha’s wedding at The Fairmont in San Francisco we had no idea that a wedding in late November could have such beautiful weather. This was a full day of coverage for us and it was a pleasure to capture the wedding day so thoroughly – from the morning preparations to the final toast of the night.

Some favorites from the day:


The beautiful, intricate detail work on Olga’s dress was matched perfectly to these shimmering silver heels:


Olga had the help of her sister, Yulia, when getting ready for the big day:




Loved this sillhoutte we captured during the final make-up touches:


First stop for portraits – the famous Legion of Honor! Considering this was a late November wedding, we hardly had any competition for those beautiful columns. Tourists and other visitors were watching our activities from a distance when one of them approached to ask if this was a “real wedding”:


It was so much fun to pose Olga and Misha for their romantic portraits! They were naturals and it almost seemed too easy:


They had a few tricks up their sleeves as well – it looked like they had this move completely mastered:


It’s always great fun when we sense that our couple is up for some edgy posing ideas. Did they make this one look HOT or what? :)


The ride across town in the limo with their Bridal Party was a lot of fun:


We were all wowed when we saw the amazing lighting and decorations set up for the ceremony in the Venetian Room of the Fairmont Hotel:



Here’s a wider view of the Venetian Room for their ceremony:




We love using settings with character and had a blast creating portraits in this brick-lined alley way:




When we were back on Nob Hill we noticed this pocket of sunlight and just had to make use of it for some more photos of Olga:




Following the ceremony, we rushed to the Gold Room to capture all the room decorations set up for the reception party:


The lighting was amazing throughout the night and it was great to see the room change color during Olga and Misha’s first dance:


Some more images of the spectacular decorations in the Gold Room:




We’ll finish off Olga and Misha’s wedding day story with an intimate photo we had a chance to capture in The Fairmont’s elevator:


Congratulations to you guys! It was a joy to be with you on this day and we wish you much happiness together.
