Campy Guerneville Wedding Reception – Gino and Tony – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

I can’t get enough of Guerneville. I love it there. I mean I really really love it there. Every time I go there for a wedding I think, gosh, I need to come back here, everything is so beautiful and relaxed. The immense amount of trees make this place serene, but that’s not all, the river is so fun to float down on and the actual town of Guerneville is full of boutiques and my favorite cafe, Big Bottom Market. The people are pretty sweet too.

It’s no wonder that Gino and Tony chose this place to have a layed back wedding reception with only their closest family and friends. The two were married privately earlier in the year but wanted to celebrate with a good old fashioned cook out and pig roast. Tony’s brother brought a giant smoker and bbq so that they could fit the entire baby pig. It was pretty phenomenal. The whole afternoon was filled with fun. Kids were playing soccer, parents were sitting and enjoying the sun, and later in the afternoon a giant bonfire was lit for marshmallow roasting and snuggling next to.

Gino and Tony were so darling. They doted on one another the entire afternoon and were so grateful that all their very best friends to be there. I was truly special to see these two families joined together by the love of these two men. I wish them the very best in their lives together.

James and Alastair’s Engagement, Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

What a fun engagement shoot! James and Alastair really wanted their shoot to be candid and photojournalistic. And that is just my style. Doing the traditional San Francisco iconic backdrops was not what they were looking for. They wanted to have their engagement shoot be a time for them to warm up in front of the camera so they’d be ready for their wedding day photos.

How better to keep things comfortable than to shoot at home. We had an amazing time in their kitchen as Alastair made one of his signature pies. On the menu for the day was blueberry.  All the ingredients were laid out and the two got to making the most delicious pie I’ve had in a long time. James is pretty lucky to have such a great cook.

While the pie was in the oven we popped up to the roof for a few photos where you could see Twin Peaks in the background. Then down to the garden and out to front of the building for a few more photos and then some photos with the kitties Sharla and Onyx. It was a great afternoon with James and Alastair and I felt really lucky to be invited into their home to see a glimpse of their life and their love for each other.  I’m really looking forward to their wedding day at Hotel Vitale and capturing more great moments.
