Stunning, evocative, gorgeous – Kaisha was all of these things, and so full of joy and laughter. Dylan was master of the dance floor – boy can that man get down. These two so obviously inspire each other. Their energy was great to be around. When going over details before the wedding, I suggested that we go from the hotel in Jack London Square in Oakland where Kaisha was getting ready to the produce packing district a few blocks away. I had noticed a dive bar there, the Merchant Saloon (Poisoning Oakland Since 1916), a few weeks prior while picking up my weekly coffee fix at Bicycle Coffee and thought that it would be a cool place to shoot. It turned out that Kaisha and Dylan had be thinking the same thing. We did a “first look” and then strolled around for a bit before the ceremony taking pictures and chit chatting. They had a blast getting high fives from the usuals at the bar and hoots and hollers of congrats from people who saw them walking around in their wedding day finery. Their ceremony at the Jack London Aquatic Center was sweet. Dylan ad-libbed part of his vows and brought down the house.
