Well I am a big San Francisco Giants fan. I can still remember fondly the loud metal bleachers and bitter cold games at “the Stick” and my favorite player as a child, the 1989 MVP Will Clark. Fast forward (cough, cough) a few years and here we are with our 2nd World Championship team in 3 years in San Francisco and now I have a little boy to enjoy it with…

Which brings me to our first SDE I would like to share from Ann & Michael’s wedding. These guys are HUGE SF Giants fans with Orange and Black dresses and tuxes, and Giants themed decor and centerpieces at the reception. The theme of the day was Let’s goooo Giaaaaants! (clap, clap, clap clap clap) as we drove around the city and over to At&t park for photos with the bridal party. While we at Lumitone were excited for game 3 of the world series, so were Ann & Michael. In fact, they had the game screening at their wedding on 8 TV’s! They are die hard fans of San Francisco Giants baseball and had no problem representing their team. It was a special day to capture in the city with all the excitement in the air. Enjoy their SDE.

Our second couple, Salina & Allen, were also great to work with. The tea ceremonies kicked off a beautiful day in Northern California. The good natured, playful door games let me know we’d be working with a fun wedding party! Too much wasabi for one of the groomsmen made it difficult to hold the shot without laughing too hard. They managed to keep the fun and energy going for their pre-ceremony photo session at the always beautiful Kohl Mansion in Burlingame as well as for the post-ceremony photos at the Japanese Tea Garden. We were then off to Zen Peninsula Restaurant in Millbrae where everyone enjoyed a fabulous meal and the guest were treated to the SDE, which was a big hit. Enjoy…

Amberly & JT were great to work with. They were both very easy going and their friends are really nice and like to joke around. We had a great time going to the city for their ceremony at Church of the Epiphany and back to the San Mateo Marriott for the Reception. It was a bit cold for picture, but these guys were held tough for us to get some great shots. Our couple went with our Fusion photo and video package with a same day edit. Enjoy…

We had the pleasure of shooting a “love story” concept video prior to Rachelle and Tony’s big day. As their friends and family already know, they are quite the interesting couple. With Tony’s meticulous nature and Rachelle’s free spirit, they prove to be a unique balance. Enjoy their SDE and Love Story Concept Video
