The architecture, the moody surroundings, and the great food are just a few things that make the Headlands Center for the Arts one of my favorite spots to shoot.  It also helps that the couples who choose this beautiful venue tend to be flexible, fun, and adventurous.  J and S were no exception.  They got ready in the Presidio and then headed across the bridge to their fun and intimate Jewish (ish) ceremony.  Beautiful local food and a fun dance party followed.  The photo station I set up for them captured some great shots.

Sometimes you prepare for rain, expect rain, and instead get nothing but blue sky.  In the days leading up to Calla and Jo’s wedding, the forecast looked wet.  We came up with a rough plan in case of rain, but it didn’t vary so much from the clear day plan.  When I arrived at the house in Stinson Beach where getting ready was taking place, Calla and Jo were enjoying the beautiful day and doing their hair and makeup together.  There was Cowgirl Creamery cheese in the kitchen and a loaf of local bread.  Once Calla and Jo were ready, we heading up to Mount Tam where their wedding guests were dropped off via yellow school buses.  A progression to Trojan Point soon followed.  There was music, singing, toasts, and Calla and Jo married each other (no officiant).  After some pictures among the Serpentine rock formations, we heading to the Stinson Beach Community Center for Hog Island Oysters and beautiful food by Fork Full of Earth and the live music of Qinn Deveaux and his band.  Such a wonderful day.

I have been going to Muir Beach and the Pelican Inn since I was thirteen and was super excited to be photographing Emrie and Matt’s wedding there. Wedding photography sometimes takes me to new and exciting destinations, and other times brings me back to places I have been to many times before, but allows me to see these places in a new light.

Emrie and Matt were such a delight to photograph… and their families were a riot. Thanks for a rockin’ good time you two.
