It’s not every day we get to shadow vampire slayers as they do their rounds at the local cemetery, but we had the chance to do just that during Erin Sara & Lucian’s engagement session. We met them at their cute Oakland home, which was filled with whimsical knickknacks and camera-shy cats. After a bit of reading, Game Boying, and communing with the salamanders in their backyard, a quick game of chess, and an attempt at cat wrangling, we were ready for action.

Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the architect perhaps most famous for New York’s Central Park, Oakland’s Mountain View Cemetery is a historic 226-acre necropolis with tree-lined avenues, thoughtful sculptures, ornate mausoleums, and sweeping views of Oakland and the San Francisco Bay. Among its many daytime visitors, aside from people paying their respects to those laid to rest there, are joggers, dog walkers, and sullen goth teenagers.

Breanne & Adam’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement

A gorgeous Beaux-Arts building appointed with a sweeping staircase, San Francisco City Hall is perhaps the most popular place to get married in San Francisco on a weekday, with local, national, and international couples alike making their way through its doors. It’s also a common site for protests. We encountered both when we arrived on March 14 to capture Breanne and Adam’s nuptials, but thankfully the clutch of protestors wielding signs to save City College of San Francisco didn’t prevent anyone from getting hitched that day.

Since we had a full hour between their marriage license application and their civil ceremony appointment time, we had the pleasure of getting to know our stylish couple, who had flown in from Reno. Breanne is an artist and events manager and thoughtfully coordinated everything, from her fanciful spring-inspired dress, mustard-colored cape, and mustard-colored shoes to Adam’s green tie and pocket square. She even…

San Francisco boasts several vantage points from which to view its skyline, among them Twin Peaks, Mt. Davidson, Bernal Heights Hill, Treasure Island, and even Dolores Park. Thanks to Erica and Steven (better known by family and friends as “Ringo”), we recently added another spot to our list: Kite Hill.

But before we gazed across the city, Erica and Ringo wanted to take a ride down the somewhat-treacherous Seward Street Slides, tucked away in the hills of the Castro. They arrived just as park staff was preparing to barricade it for the night and managed to squeeze in one exhilarating run. We’d heard of people skinning their elbows and ripping the seat of their pants on the slides but Erica and Ringo were slide ninjascompletely unscathed.

From there, we made the quick jaunt to Kite Hill (which, it must be said, was a bit windy but devoid of…

Noelle & Wade’s Intimate Spring Equinox Wedding in Napa


Spring Equinox wedding in Napa! What could better?

The Bay Area isn’t known for having four seasons. Rather, it essentially has two ( spring and fall), and even then it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish between them. The Napa Valley isn’t as sneaky when it comes to the changing of the seasons —some trees, for instance, do indeed lose their leaves for the winter, as do the grapevines. When spring arrives, it’s as if Mother Nature hits the “on” switch and all plant life suddenly burst into action.

We were extremely fortunate to celebrate the first day of spring with Noelle and Wade, who flew out from Texas with their parents for their very intimate wedding. Their special day started at the Meritage Resort & Spa, where we captured them getting ready before moving on to Reid Family Vineyards, a beautiful property appointed with a budding vineyard, soaring redwoods, a rustic barn, antique farm machinery, and a…
