After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

These two found me through Martin’s cousin, whose wedding I did a couple years back. Martin was the officiant at their Olympic Club wedding, so he and Kathleen were familiar faces when we met to talk about their upcoming wedding. I was super excited to photograph their wedding as I had become quite fond of the Gilson Family and now totally smitten by Kathleen and Martin! They are the perfect match as they complement each other’s personalities so well…and I must add, both hilarious in their own ways! They planned the most epic San Francisco wedding I have ever had the privilege of photographing! They got ready at the Lodge at the Presidio, were married under the iconic rotunda at the Palace of Fine Arts, and had the reception at the legendary San Francisco Film Centre. It was literally a day like no other from start to finish! My favorite part of the day was photographing them under the rotunda and watching her veil take flight! It never once flew off to my surprise, but it sure did make for some fun photos! I am so excited to share these images from their special day!

It is always such a great honor for me to photograph weddings for fellow college friends, so it was so much fun to be a part of Megan & Gregg’s San Francisco wedding!  They met in Colorado when she moved there for grad school and has called it her home ever since. They both love coming to SF especially since both her parents and both sets of grandparents were raised there too!  It is only appropriate that they shared their vows on a cliff overlooking Ocean Beach.  It was such an intimate and beautiful setting!  The sun was out and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky!  Oh, how I love October in San Francisco!  I absolutely loved the GIANT balloons that the flower girls carried during the ceremony and don’t even get me started on the nonbridesmaid – bridesmaid dresses!  The silhouette, the beading, the color…I mean, if they could go viral, they would!  After the ceremony, the bridal party headed to the Sutro Baths for the remarkable sunset, photos, & of course libations…a beverage always makes a great sunset spectacular!

The next day they hosted their reception at the SF Film Center, which is a historical location as it used to be part of the army barracks and was most likely used for an officer’s hall.  The theme was Hollywood Glam and the guests were ready to celebrate the newlyweds as they arrived on an SF trolly!  The outfits were amazing!  People really embraced the spirit of the Great Gatsby and I couldn’t help but wonder if back in the day officers had similar celebrations there.  I would like to think so 😉  Making this location even more special is the fact that Megan used to come to the Presidio Officer’s club as a kid with her grandpa. The evening was so much fun, I found it hard to leave the party!  Congrats Megan & Gregg on all the adventure and love you have in your future.

I mean, WOW!  Those dresses were perfect for the occasion and went so well with Megan’s gorgeous vintage inspired wedding dress!

What’s not to love about oversized balloons!  I can’t think of anything!

I went to school with all three gals and I couldn’t be more proud of their chugging abilities 😉
