So hard to choose…

Meet Kiea and Colin. They got married on 6-7-8 (june, the sixth month, on the 7th day, and in the year 2008)… and everything about their love story seems to work in that amazing organic way… proving they fit together perfectly. They said their wedding was absolutely wonderful, and their only regret was there weren’t many photographs of just the two of them. They had a different photographer, who did an excellent job, but who didn’t get enough photographs of the two of them.

So they called me and we made a date. Kiea scheduled a hair and make-up appointment with a friend and then we met in the middle… which happens to be in the middle of the most beautiful countryside and a perfect backdrop. And in a matter of 2 hours, we covered just about every beautiful setting possible. Now the only problem is, how do you choose which photo to pick as your favorite… because they all are so darn cute.

It was wonderful to have so much time to play, and to play without the stress of the wedding day. I loved it and only wish I could have a photo shoot after the wedding with all my wedding couples.

OK… I said it was hard to choose a favorite… but this one wins, for me.


Engagement Photos and Haiku’s…

Meghan and Tom wanted engagement photos because they did’t have any photos of just the two of them together. And that made me very happy because…

  • it gives us time to get to know each other better
  • I get to see how they photograph
  • they get used to me hanging around and documenting their every move
  • and we get to play without having to worry about time constraints, like on the day of the wedding.

So we met in San Francisco at the Ferry Plaza where we warmed up with baguettes and swing dancing in the bright sun.

Then we made our way to the Golden Gate Bridge where the fog was playing at the edge of the sun, which made for great light and cold photos.

Meghan and Tom were good sports and open for anything, even dusty old phone booths. And they were perfectly happy to be told to “get close” and “snuggle in” because it gave them a chance to talk about haiku’s and laugh.

But my favorite photos of the day were at the very end. We were all more comfortable with each other, the wind was blocked by the tress and the grass was glowing green… everything was perfect.

Come again soon to see their Nicasio Valley wedding photos.
