From an incredible Victorian home, up to Alamo Square, and down to the Verdi Club in the Mission, one thing was constant: Excitement.
Whether it was just in the company of their families, taking portraits together in the streets of San Francisco, the signing of the Ketubah, getting married beneath the Chuppah amongst friends and family, having their first dance as a newly married couple, behind hoisted above their guests during the Horah, or just gettin down on the dance floor, the excitement was undeniable. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself.
(Fun fact, I learned how to tie a bow tie on this day. Quality life skill.)
The time I spent with Jill and Kaung was filled with laughter both together and at each other. It's this kind of joy in a relationship that I love to photograph and bring out from couples.
Photographing at the San Francisco City Hall, a spectacular space filled with an abundance of soft light and striking architectural features, is always a pleasure. After a quick informal session at city hall, we headed over to another San Francisco architectural landmark, the Palace of Fine Arts, and then concluded our day basking in the warm sunlight of the SF coast.
We would return to city hall on a quiet Tuesday morning to complete their marriage during a civil ceremony in front of friends and family from near and far. I'm pretty sure we went a little over the 6 person guest limit, but they didn't seem to mind.
Two days with two wonderful people.
