What my clients share with me is heartwarming. – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

A few weeks back I photographed Claire and Duncan for their 10 year wedding anniversary in Golden Gate Park.  They were so happy with the photos they wrote to tell me about it and what they had to say was just so sweet I had to share.  Thank you Claire and Duncan!!

 

Here’s what they had to say…

My Husband and I wanted some professional photos taken for a couple of reasons; first, we are adopting a baby and wanted some more classical headshots for our adoption profile. Secondly, it was coming up to our 10th wedding anniversary and we wanted some pictures of the two of us to commemorate this. After checking out Liz’s website, we knew that she had the edge over other photographers we’d seen and fell in love with her work.

Prior to the shoot, Liz gave us lots of advice on how to look our best for the big day. She helped me pick out my dress that I was going to wear by looking at texts that I had sent her of my clothing. On the day itself (the shoot was in Golden Gate Park), we met Liz and she knew exactly where we should go to get some great shots, as she’d been down a few days earlier to scope out some good locations.

Liz immediately put us at ease, which was great for my husband as he really, really, doesn’t like being photographed. She also helped put me at ease too, so I wasn’t so wooden! She was so great to work with, she knew exactly what she was doing and put us in the best poses to look natural.

We went to several locations, with Liz carrying all her heavy looking equipment. I am an amateur photographer and I was drooling over her equipment, this stuff was top notch.

In the days following the shoot, Liz was very quick with uploading our photographs so we could take a look at them and choose the ones we wanted. They really were the most beautiful photographs and Liz captured perfectly how my husband and I are still very much in love. All of our friends and family love them.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Liz, she is fun and friendly, yet very professional, a fact I think that comes out in her work.

Stow Lake Golden Gate Park San Francisco Wedding Anniversary – Claire and Duncan – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

Golden Gate Park is such a gorgeous setting to walk about, and what a better place than Stow Lake to celebrate a 10 year wedding anniversary. If you’ve never been to this part of the park it has a little bit of everything. There’s the lake, of course, but then there’s a waterfall, two bridges leading you on and off the island, multiple benches to sit and contemplate, a boat house where you can rent peddle boats and row boats, a cute cafe with a huskie who helps out customers, a Chinese pagoda, and in the middle an island that climbs and climbs and climbs to a peak called Strawberry Hill where you can find loads of butterflies if you have the patience to wait for them to show up on the petals of flowers.

Originally from England, Claire and Duncan have been living in the Bay Area for many years. They wanted to commemorate this milestone in their lives with a photoshoot in one of the places they both spend many hours together, either on morning walks with their two cute pups or out for runs. The park is like a second home to them as they live just steps away.

Ten years goes by in the blink of an eye, yet the energy and love these two have for one another is just as strong as when they met. When they look into each other’s eyes, it’s almost as though they know exactly what the other is thinking. Claire and Duncan are really such a sweet and loving couple. I was especially happy to be able to photograph this time in their lives and hope to be able to capture them together just as loving for their twenty year anniversary.
