Somehow I am lucky enough to always get paired up with such great couples! Tariq and Annalise were a pleasure to be around and such a fun-loving couple. Not to mention they have their model poses down pat! They’re just a stunning pair, no doubt about that. I was thrilled I got to shoot at the swanky Sofitel Hotel just south of San Francisco. The classy feel of the hotel worked perfectly with the bridesmaids’ long flowing dresses and the groomsmen’s dark, sleek suits. Seriously, everyone just looked so good I felt like I was shooting a magazine spread! It was a change from my typical wedding party photos, as I usually opt for the natural, outdoor portraits, but I’m so glad I decided to shoot instead in the fancy lobby. Sheer curtains, tufted furniture, leading lines and not to mention great window light; how could I pass it up?
The ceremony and reception were held at Holbrook Palmer Park and had some more amazing spots to shoot. After the short and sweet ceremony and a great session of photos with just Annalise and Tariq, it was time to party! There was lots of dancing, laughter and cherished family time. It was a wonderful day and as always, I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to capture these memories for such a loving couple!
