GAHHHHHH!!! These two fierce women got married and I am on the cloud 9 to have photographed their day.

San Francisco City Hall is finally open after COVID-19 and I am glad to open up this season with Nayara and Fernanda’s wedding. They are both Brazilians and as you know, I am too, so when we find each other is like we know each other for a lifetime.

Nayara is an outgoing woman that bright up any room she gets in and Fernanda is a lovely woman that is visible that loves Na with all her heart.

SF City Hall is still with the mask regulations and now only one witness can get in to sign their marriage license and no more photos are allowed inside. The ceremony is still allowed on the top of the stairs but while the ceremony happens, is necessary to keep the masks on. After is done you can take the mask off for a kiss photo.

After they got married at the top of the stairs of SF City Hall, we then went all the way up to photograph some family as the light in the morning are beautiful up there. As we slowly got down, we got the whole stairs open to have them both in the middle to have the epic shot. We stay inside photographing them two for about almost two hours and then went to the exit where the SF City Hall name is placed.

You won’t believe what happened…

There was having a gathering outside of city hall, kind like a protest. As we opened the doors and they came out, a while bunch of people cheered them up and the smiles on their faces was memorable. I got to photograph their happiness and put some of the photos below. It gave me the chills. It was like a celebration of their love, a great start to a life long relationship.

It is CRAZY how God put His hands in every detail of our existence and I feel honored for being able to photograph such memorable and special milestones of my clients life.

As you know, maternity sessions have my whole heart and I am always in the look out of helping you to have the best experience ever.

We start with the locations, where you tell me what you are looking for (forest, intimate, hills, beach, desert…) and I give you options that we can do. After the location we will start planning the outfits. I do offer a small selection of clothes that you can pick from with no additional cost. You can bring your own dress too if you want. After picking yours, we will complement your hubby outfits to have a smooth and beautiful session.

We will meet up and have the best time together. I still get asked a lot if the husband and other kids can come and the answer is always YES!!! The new baby is a miracle for the whole family and it should be celebrated together also as a family.

Every session is different to me as everyone has a need and special requests. That is why is so important for me that you share a lot of information about what are you looking for, how do you feel, what is important for you and how your family unfolds.

These two is having their first baby girl and wanted to register this moment but wasn’t sure if a session would be worth it, because he hates photos and she wanted to be fun for both. I got to show them to trust me and guarantee that we will have fun together and they will not even realize that I will be photographing and guess what: THEY LOVED IT!!!! He is the one that is most proud of how all the photos turned out and keep saying how great was the decision of having their photos taken.

See for yourself how beautiful these turned out. We went to my favorite place in Walnut Creek for their maternity session. I am obsessed!!!!

Dani and Karlton met in a club while hanging out with friends. She was the one to take the first step to ask him to dance and after that they spent the whole night together. They have never be a part ever since.

To propose, Karlton prepared an amazing scene having Dani’s best friend to help him out. She works for television and got to hide all their plans really well. Dani’s friend tricked her saying she needed help in this event, so Dani went. In between the way, she said she needed to stop at this place and they ended up in this garden where Karlton with her whole family was waiting for her. He also had a violinist playing to make everything even more magical.

Them both are from Florida and they were eloping in Sonoma county at Vitners Resort. I was so excited!!! First, if you don’t know Vitners Resort, please go check them out. Looks like you are in a fairytale. It is an intimate place, fulfilled of vines on their hotel walls and their gardens and vineyard are stunning. Second, I got to meet them both online before we closed anything and we clicked right away. It is so important to me to get to know you before we decide anything. Having a wedding photographer is a big deal and is the person you get to spend most of the time together at your beautiful day. So finding someone that you love is essential.

They eloped in Sonoma and brought with them their immediate family to witness this beautiful moment. Every detail was so well planned and made their day even more magical.

Dani didn’t want a first look so I asked her if she wanted one with her dad, before he pick her up to get in and she said yes. It was so emotional and she was so happy that she did this. A girl is the most important treasure of a father and having this moment before he delivers her to her future husband is so special.

Their ceremony and speeches were lovely and intimate to create the perfect celebration atmosphere to the day. Everyone at Vitners Resort were amazing.

I want to say a special thank you to Dani and Karlton for trusting me and my work, you two are amazing souls and I absolutely loved meeting you two. I can’t wait to see your future together and all the amazing things you both will achieve.

Also, to the most amazing vendors, you all are incredibly talented.
