I absolutely loved 2014 and had an amazing year creating photos for all my wonderful clients. I was lucky to have photos published in several magazines and blogs as well as work with great new clients and couples.

A huge thank you to each and every one of my clients for trusting me to take beautiful photos of you.

Win a Gorgeous Canvas for Your Home!

To celebrate, I’m sponsoring a special contest giveaway! I’ve selected the best photos from different sessions throughout the year, and I will give away a free 16″ x 20″ canvas gallery wrap (from my pro lab) with the photo of their choice to the couple who has the most votes before January 30, 2015.

How to Vote

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY TO MAKE SURE YOUR VOTES COUNT!!!

Each person can receive one vote by leaving a comment below telling me what you love about the photo you are voting for and the name of the couple you are voting for. Comments that don’t have both of these things will not be counted.

You can receive an extra vote by “liking” my Facebook page in addition to posting your comment. Simply “like” my page (if you haven’t already) and then leave a comment saying which photo you’re voting for AND WHY so I can count your vote toward the correct photo.

Voting Ends at Midnight PST on January 30, 2015. Winners will be announced as soon as votes can be validated and counted.

The fine print: By commenting, you allow me to use your comments as testimonials on my website, print or social media marketing. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by Facebook.

Thanks again for your support! I’m looking forward to an amazing 2015 and am excited for the new weddings and portraiture sessions I have coming up.

Good luck, and Happy New Year!!

James and Alastair

Here Comes The Guide Approved Wedding Photography – from a top san francisco wedding and engagement photographer

I’m so so so excited to be part of the approved Here Comes the Guide Wedding Photographer list. It’s no easy task to be a part of this list. Brides, Grooms, Wedding Planners, Florists and Wedding vendors needed to be contacted and interviewed about their experiences with me as a photographer and service provider to the wedding industry. If I was not up to snuff, I did not get to be part of the elite group of Wedding Photographers.

James and Alastair’s Great Gatsby Themed Wedding at Hotel Vitale – from a top san francisco wedding photographer

The Great Gatsby was definitely a major influence on James and Alastair’s wedding. Both James and Alastair were decked out in custom suits from Al’s Attire reflective of the roaring 20s.

Alastair wore an all white suit with accents of color in his dark sand colored vest and golden tie. James wore a complimentary suit in dark sand with a lighter colored sand vest and navy bow tie. The two looked dapper together.

The wedding was held at Hotel Vitale in San Francisco, but friends and family flew in from all over the world. James’s family flew from Hong Kong and New Zealand while Alastair’s family flew in from St. Louis. Jennifer from The Styled Soiree transformed the already stunning rooftop venue into a decadent and memorable wedding site. James and Alastair recited their vows right before sunset on the rooftop overlooking downtown San Francisco, the famed ferry building, the embarcadero and the bay bridge. A corner suite with views that went on and on far past Treasure Island and the Oakland hills was a temporary home for their delicious three navy and gold layer cake. Here the colors of their wedding popped in every room. Purple, white, navy, and gold were seen in the flowers, the linens, the furniture, and on James and Alastair themselves.

After the sun set the two danced the night away on a particularly warm night for San Francisco. Congratulations to two of the sweetest men San Francisco is lucky to have.
