2017 was a strange year. The overall level of uncertainty seemed unusually high. There were fires and floods in California, and wacky politics everywhere. As crazy as last year felt, when I look back at the people I worked with and the way they gracefully danced with uncertainty, I feel nothing but love. After many years of shooting weddings and working with couples and their friends and families, I am still stoked about what I do. Here are 100 images from last year.

Fun times with Carolyn and Andrew. We hit up some of my favorite spots in the Presidio. Getting ready at the Inn at the Presidio, a quick jaunt to Goldsworthy’s Wood Line, a stop off at those bunkers overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, and a pause at that place were the new freeways come together… and all before the ceremony started at the Presidio Chapel. Fantastic flowers by Belle Flower and delightful reception at the Golden Gate Club. Good stuff.
When I first started talking with Molly and Jake about photographing their wedding, it was a good sized affair that they were planning. At a certain point in their process, they decided that the wedding that they had been planning was not the wedding that they wanted… so they shifted their focus. They decided that they wanted to get married somewhere hilly with beautiful views. They wanted just a small group of friends and family, killer food, and to keep things simple. So when I got to Fort Mason to catch the shuttle to Trojan Point on Mount Tam, I was not surprised to see a school bus pull up to take us to the top of the mountain. With smiles on our faces, we all boarded the bus. Jake did roll call. Once we arrived at Trojan Point we walked out to the point and were greeted by views of Marin, San Francisco, and the Pacific Ocean. The cool breeze balanced the warmth of the day. Molly and Jake’s ceremony was bursting with heart. After the ceremony we travelled back to Fort Mason to the restaurant, Greens. The staff there was absurdly nice, and the food exquisite. Elizabeth Clayton of Lowe House Creative made sure that all the details of the day were taken care of. Belle Flower of Oakland did the flowers. And Molly made the chocolate chip cookies. It was a beautiful, intimate, and personal wedding. I feel so honored to have been apart of it. Congrats Molly and Jake!
