Andrea & BC’s Japan-Inspired SF Winery Wedding

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:


Known for its spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, Treasure Island is probably the last place you’d think to look for a winery. Surprisingly, it harbors several, including The Winery SF, a 20,000-square-f00t wine-making facility that also hosts special events. Remember Andrea and BC and their engagement session at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park earlier this year? They tied the knot at The Winery SF over the summer, and we were privileged to capture it.

The Winery SF’s vast space is lined with wine barrels, and we loved that Andrea and BC complemented it with Japanese touches. The escort cards were actually ema (wooden plaques onto which Shintoists write wishes and/or prayers) featuring Japanese icons such as Hello Kitty, geishas, beer vending machines, sushi, and sumo wrestlers (Andrea made the round image stickers from photos that she and BC took during their time in Japan).

Lyndsay & Mike’s Intimate Napa Elopement

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:

Lyndsay & Mike01
Couples frequently get engaged in exotic locales, but Mike took it to the next level when he and Lyndsay were on vacation in London: In preparation for his proposal, he secretly had a graffiti artist paint “Blondie <heart> Steele” on a wall right on Kingsland Road in Hoxton (Steele’s his last name and Lyndsay is, well, blonde). We can’t even begin to imagine Lyndsay’s face when he unveiled the surprise and popped the question!

We had the privilege of capturing their joy in July, however, when they journeyed from Texas to tie the knot at Napa’s Meritage Resort & Spa. We also had the pleasure of seeing (and photographing!) Mike’s expression when Lyndsay revealed a surprise of her own after their touching ceremony: “Blondie <heart> Steele” painted on canvas and unrolled against a backdrop of leafy grapevines. So sweet!

Afterwards, they enjoyed their first dance in the summer sunshine with…

Erin Sara & Lucian’s Zootastic Post-Wedding Excursion

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:

Remember Erin Sara and Lucian’s woodsy Pacific Northwest wedding? The next day, we joined our newlyweds across the sound at the Woodland Park Zoo for a post-wedding photo session. Erin Sara had volunteered there when they lived in Seattle and was thus able to give us a whirlwind tour of the grounds before the zoo closed for the day.

In one hour, we sped past twirling gorillas, pacing jaguars, and lounging wolves; stared down curious meercats; rode a sleeping komodo dragon, hung out with giraffes; took several spins on the carousel; climbed a thorny tree; and spied on endangered birds, among many other glorious things. How could it be anything but fun??? Check out our still and animated images below.

Running Amok in Berkeley with Eliza, AJ & Artie

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:

What’s more fun than an engagement session with a crafty, creative couple? An engagement session with their canine companion!

Eliza and AJ have spent most of their relationship restoring pieces or creating magic with material from Urban Ore, a salvage yard in Berkeley, so we were excited to meet them and their scrappy pup Artie (named after the intrepid Warehouse 13 agent) there. The place is chockablock with freestanding doors, windows, sinks, furniture, and more, and we had a blast exploring its nooks and crannies while Artie kept an eye out for the resident kitties. We especially enjoyed the photography section (of course!), where Eliza and AJ messed around with a couple of Polaroids that we were tempted to buy.

Once the shop closed, we made our way to Point Isabel Regional Shoreline, an off-leash dog park that’s one of Eliza and AJ’s favorite places to let Artie get…
