San Francisco University Club Wedding :: Marie & Joe

San Francisco University Club Wedding :: Marie & Joe

I have been a been quiet lately. For good reason of course because my summer and early fall has been spent photographing the most amazing couples! I’m sharing my favorite snaps from Marie & Joe’s wedding this past May. They officially married on a Friday at San Francisco’s City Hall, and then held a reception the next day at The University Club. These two really set the tone for my whole wedding season. It allowed me to really dive in deep and photograph not just these beautiful moments, but the feeling of their wedding day. Joe and Marie are all about being fun, adventurous, HAPPY, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with these photos from their day. Take a peek at my favorites below. xoxox

Playful Engagement Session in Calistoga

Playful Engagement Session in Calistoga

I spent a several hours with Melanie and Will in wine country!  We went for a playful approach, starting with a tandem bike excursion in Calistoga, then happening on a quaint wine bar and finishing off the day chasing the sun. These types of sessions are always so fun – it’s a great way to ease into being photographed and for us to get to know each other! I am looking forward to their wedding this fall.  xoxo – Christina

Bold Wedding with Couture Red Wedding Gown

Forewarning, this is probably my biggest post ever. There are just way too many favorites that I can’t not share! Last year I had the honor of photographing Hannah & Andrew’s wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. Hannah’s sister is Emily, the editor and owner of the wedding blog Once Wed. I was beyond ecstatic to be their photographer and it was evident the moment we chatted on the phone why were were such a match. This wedding is so special to me: it’s bold, unique, lively and the photos all tell such a wonderful energized story. Lots of fun film cameras were used to create this wedding! Thanks so much for having me Hannah & Andrew!  Want to see more? Pop on over to Once Wed! xoxoxo

Multi-Cultural Wedding at Barndiva :: Brianne & Jay

Multi-Cultural Wedding at Barndiva :: Brianne & Jay

This year has been so incredible!  I found myself photographing three lovely weddings at one of my favorite venues, Barndiva! Barndiva is the kind of place you want to take your parents to when their in town, it’s the kind of place you want to share with your family and friends. From the ambiance and legendary “Eat The View” to their impeccable food and service, this place will always stand out to me as one of the best in the Bay Area and it’s no wonder Brianna & Jay chose this venue!

Preppy Wedding at Dawn Ranch

Preppy Wedding at Dawn Ranch

2014 has been the year of me shooting multiple weddings at the same venue and I love it.   Just last week I shared this Dawn Ranch wedding and now I’m so excited to share with you Megan & Evan’s wedding! They hired a team of some incredible players including Enjoy EventsShotgun FloralKatie Nash and Elizabeth Hummert to name a few!  Megan (an interior designer by day) left no detail behind! Like starting with handmade signs from wood taken from Evan’s family farm and placed on each cabin personalized for their guests.  Then, Evan’s momma made each gingham napkin that also matched the groomsmen attire!  They had ridiculously beautiful florals, a really cool escort card display, paper airplane ceremony programs, and speaking of ceremony check out their amazing seating!  It was a thoughtful wedding filled with so much love, color and amazing energy. I mean —  I could go on and on and on…. so I’ll just let the photos take over!  Enjoy!  And, thank you Green Wedding Shoes for the lovely feature!  Congratulations Megan & Evan!
