San Francisco Wedding Photography|Reyna and Noah Portraits

After rockin out Frasinetti Winery with Reyna and Noah, we all got some rest and took a weekend vacation together to San Francisco for rest, relation, sushi, and portraits.  This was a fantastic luxury to have my clients and friends excited about doing something different and shooting their portraits on the next day…. I was so stoked that they were stoked!   My lovely wife assisted, and we were able to get in some sweet locations before the sun set on us and it was time for a fabulous dinner… Check out our day in San Francisco, my concrete paradise.

These getting ready photos have a more relaxed feel to them, and this was a common thread throughout the day… I’m hoping it translates well.




I ran across the street and went the the 12th story of a parking garage for the next shot… love the city feel, and I’d climb those stairs again anyday. And when I say stairs, I mean the ones leading to the elevator=)


Ahhh Pier 39. Clam Chowder, silly socks, Carousels, and tons of memories… and newlyweds.









Yeah, we had to head to the Palace. You know this place gets some serious photo-love…. it was a Monday, and there were STILL two other wedding couples having photos taken there… but we were watching. We made sure to rock it harder. I could see the jealousy in their eyes when I busted out some lighting gear ( the wife counts as lighting gear in this case… thanks babe)





We were losing light fast, but we made the decision to haul butt over to Baker beach, cause Reyna promised me that she will get her dress wet before the day is over…now keep in mind that this is San Francisco, not San Diego, and that water was JUST slightly warmer than freezing, so we didn’t completely trash the dress.  I rolled up my pants and hopped in there so I knew what Reyna was workin with. She toughed it out, I screamed like a little girl when that ice water hit my pale legs!


I’m in love with this last image… since they are family friends, I should be able to get away with hanging it on my wall at home. Love U guys! Not quite as much as the love in this photo though… the hand, the look, its just… <3.

As far as photoshoots go, this one was epic. San Francisco portraits with my wife and great friends, sushi, pastry, designing my first bouquet with Maple leaves, it was perfect. Thanks Reyna and Noah!! I barely even realized I was working, and thats how work should be.

Much<3,

Dave
