Justin + Brianne [Married] Hotel Vitale, San Francisco // San Francisco Wedding Photographer

September in San Francisco is hands down the best time to get married. As a SF September bride myself, I just love visiting the city when the tempratures are mild, yet warm, the fog is absent and the tourists have gone away – well almost all of them.  Justin and Brianne are from the hockey playing nation just North of our boarder – yup! Canada! These Oilers fans (shhh.. go Sharks!) opted for the City by the Bay because in their previous trips to our lovely city, they fell in love with it all. The majestic Golden Gate, the hills, the people and all the things that make San Francisco amazing. The two quickly settled on the beautiful Hotel Vitale – a rooftop wedding and party that overlook the ferry building and the Bay Bridge – what could top that?! Nothing other than their amazing love for one another, the sweet daughter that they share, and of course, a smashing good party!

Enjoy!

Getting ready to walk down the isle, Justin held their daughter, who was their flower girl. The two stayed traditional and waited until the ceremony to see each other. Justin literally held his breath and then smiled ear to ear – the biggest I saw all day – when he saw his beautiful bride walk towards him on the arm of her father.

After the ceremony, Justin and Brianne scheduled a limo and three hours – THREE HOURS – to venture around the city to take pictures. Now, San Francisco on a Friday afternoon can be a little crazy, so we narrowed town our adventure to the Ferry Building, Crissy Field and a Cable Car depot! They were so much fun to ride around with – jamming out to California Love.

What did Brianne have to say about her experience?

Hi Karey!
Just wanted to extend my deepest thanks for being the most amazing photographer I could have even imagined for my wedding! You were so much fun to shoot with and us, along with our bridal party and guests were all so impressed by the job you did.

Nathan + Marina [Married] Ravenswood // Livermore Wedding Photographer

“It’s about time!” is what everyone said, shouted and cheered. 8 years in the making, Nathan and Marina found the perfect time and perfect location for their vows.

Ravenswood Historic Site in Livermore offered the perfect backdrop for their chic vintage wedding. With nearly everything DIY, Marina and her mother planned,  worked, and laughed together as they pulled off one of the most beautiful weddings Ravenswood has ever seen. Everything was them – they exchanged handwritten vows under the gazebo; The wooden bench that served as a guest book; Marina’s boots; Their bichon, Marley, serving as their ring bearer; No bridal party, just them; Simple and perfect.

 

From Marina’s Mother:

“I just wanted to drop a quick email to you and let you know that I think the pictures you took of Marina (my daughter) and Nathan are exceptional!

You are truly gifted at your profession and I especially love your technique in capturing so many natural non-candid pictures. Your creative eye and sense of knowing how to capture them and produce such beautiful photographs is just amazing. I feel like I’ve walked through the wedding again, which is so amazing because the day went by so fast that you just forget how everything looked or missed, but you captured it all. Your unique touch of personalizing the web-site with your story and capturing “key” words that were mentioned just shows how engaged you were with this event. I couldn’t be more impressed by you and your work Karey – you are an amazing photographer and have been sharing your website with family, friends, and co-workers and will definitely be recommending your name to others.  I feel really blessed that Marina and Nathan found you to capture one of the most important days of there lives. ”

Thank you so much!
Linda

Lee + Shelby [Married] Monte de Oro Winery // Temecula Wedding Photographer

The Tour de Muse has been a number of years in the making. With both of them in earning advance degrees (Lee, his MBA and Shelby her Doctorate in Physical Therapy) the two enjoyed cycling, traveling, wine tasting and the Anaheim Ducks (GO SHARKS!) in between classes and papers. One day, the two went to Pelican Hill Resort in Newport. Unbeknownst to Shelby, Lee was planning a special surprise… He dropped down on one knee and proposed – and it was all caught on camera by a professional photographer who then took them around for some fun proposal day photographs! On cloud nine, the two got right to planning their big day.

Bouncing between a SoCal and a NorCal wedding the two decided that a wedding in the southern part of the state was the best for everyone. Shelby and Lee’s wine country nuptials were beautiful.  Choosing the beautiful Monte de Oro Winery in Temecula, guests from near and far came to witness a ceremony overlooking vines and dance the night away in the winery’s barrel room.

Following the ceremony, we went for a romp at sunset in the vineyards. Simply wonderful! Could not have asked for a more perfect evening. After we were all done, Lee and Shelby still had time to enjoy some quiet time by themselves before they were announced at the beginning of their reception!

Kenny + Stephanie [Married] Sunol Valley Golf Club // East Bay Wedding Photographer

I had the joy of first meeting Kenny and Stephanie back in 2013, shortly after they got engaged. They were so sweet on one another and excited to tied the knot at a beautiful late-summer ceremony at Sunol Valley.

Beautiful flowers and a custom tailored gown – perfect weather and California sunset – their day was simply perfect! A complete DIY wedding, the two worked hard alongside friends and family to make their day magical!

Juan + Michelle [Married] Dublin Shannon Center // East Bay Wedding Photographer

Juan and Michelle are simply sweet for one another. Engaged while vacationing in Hawai’i last year, the two began planning their perfect day.  With friends and family by their side, the two said, “I do.” in a lovely sun-filled ceremony in Dublin.

As huge 49′er fans – I thought it only appropriate to post their blog on the season opener!

Enjoy!!
