Westin on Market Wedding Photos – Philana and Michael

by | Aug 28, 2009 | Weddings | 7 comments

Philana and Michael’s beautiful wedding took place at The Westin on Market in San Francisco. It might sound counter-intuitive but we were excited to see that it was a bit overcast in the city on this day. It’s interesting that the best light outdoors can be found when the sky has at least a few clouds and preferably no direct sunlight. This was especially great because we had a good amount of time allocated for Philana and Michael’s portraits.

The first spot we explored was the De Young museum in Golden Gate Park. While there were definitely many people in the area, thanks to the awesome light we were really able to get some great portraits of the entire bridal party. This location is just perfect on a cloudy day.

Our second spot was a lively pier near The Embarcadero and Broadway. Despite the full sun we were also able to capture some fun and spontaneous moments. Philana and Michael’s ceremony and reception took place at The Westin on Market and we enjoyed shooting the rest of their glamorous wedding day. Big congratulations to this lovely couple!!
