Michelle & Jeremy Wedding - San Francisco, CA
We were with Michelle and Jeremy for 6 events. It was important, to the couple, that I captured the events leading up to, and the events following the wedding itself. They wanted to remember the experience and emotions, not just the one day. This meant covering the tree cutting, the family helping with preparations, the rehearsal & the dinner, the getting ready and of course, the wedding atop a mountain in Berkeley, San Francisco.
Over the duration of this many events you really get to know people and we became good friends with Michelle and Jeremy. We took them to their favourite childhood pumpkin patch, where they picked their trees and later documented their respective families helping them with their preparations for the big day.
They held their rehearsal dinner at Skates on the Bay, in Berkeley, CA and we got some great photographs there. Skates on the Bay is a fantastic waterfront facing location that feels very modern and chic.
The family all came together in the bride’s mum’s house, including cousins from some other continents, where they all worked as a team and helped in the preparations. We were there to capture this beautiful family moment.
Lastly, they held their wedding at The Brazilian Room, also in Berkeley. It was a very sunny day on the day, which made for some very dynamic photos. The day went off without a hitch, Michelle having some Belizean roots resulted in some great dance routines and traditions.
