Looking for something in particular? Here are a few places to start browsing:

We were introduced to David and Ernst by common friends and it’s been a blast getting to know them. For one thing, they are those rare people who like chocolate more then we do :) David is a talented chocolatier and creates the most amazing chocolates! As you can imagine I liked these guys right away :)

We loved how their engagement session turned out and had pretty high hopes for photography on the day of the wedding.

Their preparations took place at the Sir Francis Drake hotel and the ceremony with the following reception were held at The Old Mint on 5th and Mission. It was fascinating to get to know The Old Mint and learn that it’s the 3rd oldest building in San Francisco. Complete with a set of cool vaults for the cocktail hour, this venue was a stylish setting for this celebration.

After the preparations, we loved having the opportunity to create some beautiful portraits at Sir Francis Drake:

How awesome is this ceremony setup? The tables allowed all the guests so have their cocktails and comfortably chat while waiting for the ceremony to start:

As wedding photographers, we LOVE emotion and there was no shortage of it on this day. You could see people tearing up during the ceremony and giving standing ovations to some of the touching reception toasts. We loved the intimacy witnessed on this day:
