Something that’s always been important to me is making sure to walk the line between documenting moments and creating more dynamic work. If I’m honest those two styles don’t often go hand in hand and I’ve struggled for a long time to create work that felt more “real”, something that feels like a sneak peak into a life. All that being said I was stoked to document some “real” moments of Daniel and Valerie picking out flowers at the San Francisco flower market for their wedding (which is another beautiful story that I’m sure will be shared soon enough). In the meantime I hope you enjoy some candid photos from a few hours with these two genuinely wonderful people.
Here’s a snippet from one of my favorite days (wedding or otherwise) ever. Kevin and Delanie are some of the coolest people I’ve known, and they threw down hard in Oakland. From their ceremony at Joaquin Miller Park to their reception at Classic Cars West downtown there wasn’t much more a photographer could ask for. We hit up redwoods to get that nature vibe and underpasses to get that grunge one, they truly were down for everything. Now if they could just get married every weekend forever that would be pretty great.
This is my favorite part of being a photographer, meeting new people and wandering around San Francisco. We spent the day hitting up all the cool kid spots: eagle’s point, golden gate bridge, cable cars, ferry building, and munching down on some burritos.
