Friday Favorite

Green Tea with a scoop of honey. I have at least 1 (or 5.....) a day. And I'm a firm believer in the idea that a pretty mug makes it taste better.

Mug from (where else?!) Anthropologie

Behind the scenes

Sometimes my 2nd shooters and assistants take photos of me when I don't know it (those sneaky girls!). They are almost always horribly unflattering. But there are a few that I will let see the light of day, and I thought it would be fun to show what it looks like to everyone else, and what it looks like through my lens. Case in point, see below.

In 1 photo, I'm lying on the dirty dirty ground in the SOMA section of San Francisco. In the other, I'm balancing, cheering, and shooting on a 12 foot ladder.  I look crazy in both, but totally worth it in the end, don't you think?!

Another behind the scenes shot, this is typically what the parents look like as I'm photographing their kids. They usually end up making me giggle too.

And snow? Who needs it to be snowing when you can bring along a strainer, place some snow from the ground in it, and ask the Dad to shake it over his son's head.  Works like a charm :)

Lastly, testing the lighting on a photobooth can only be done while striking a silly pose (or busting out some of the props, but that is for another post!)

San Francisco Engagement Session- Heather & Tom

Heather and Tom knew each other in high school, but didn't date. He had asked her out, but she said no. The funny thing is that she doesn't remember it, and honestly I'm not sure she believes him when he says it happened! Regardless, they met up again later in life, started dating, and are now getting married at the fabulous Olema Inn in August. They are both a little quiet, a little shy, and completely adore each other. I think the best shots happened when they didn't realize I was still shooting, that's how cute they are in real life.

Congrats Heather & Tom! Can't wait for the wedding!

Can I just take a moment to acknowledge how GORGEOUS Heather is?!

Clos Du Bois Wedding- Jenny & Mike

Anyone who saw Mike & Jenny's photobooth pics, know that their wedding was a definite good time. They had it all... dancing, in and out burgers, a prom king and queen, photobooth, amazing dance music, pretty much anything you can think of that would be fun and interesting, they had it. This was supposed to be a sneak peek since I haven't quite finished the editing yet, but it somehow turned into a full on post. I had a bit of a hard time narrowing it down :) Hope you enjoy them! Congrats Jenny & Mike!

Venue: Clos Du Bois Winery
DJ: A. Long Music

Thanks to my fabulous second shooter Annika, and assistant Leda! You guys are awesome!
