Amanda and Jody’s elopement took place at City Hall in San Francisco, CA. City Hall is one of our favorite places to shoot in the city! The architecture there is so gorgeous and the light is perfect in so many places!

The windows in this hallway are perfect for bright backlighting for pics.

We started off the day at Amanda’s room at the Hyatt in the financial district for pics of her hair and makeup.

We used the glass table in the hotel room for this shot of Amanda’s ring.

Amanda loves going barefoot, so she wore cute little bottomless sandals with her dress.

Jody got ready at a rental house over near Lower Pac Heights, so while Amanda was finishing up, Dusty went there to do pics of Jody getting ready.

We did a little first look with Amanda and Jody right before they went in to sign their marriage license.

Shannon and Tyler’s wedding took place at Centerville Estates in Chico. Centerville has a beautifully manicured, terraced area for their weddings to take place, and Shannon’s flowers matched the setting and decor perfectly!

Shannon wore a gorgeous beaded dress that reminded us of all the art-deco detailing from the 20’s.

This sunflower on the flower arrangements at the ceremony was the perfect place to do ring shots!

Shannon gave silverware jewelry to each of her bridesmaids so they could wear it with their lavender dresses.

This vine arch in front of the creek and canyon wall at Centerville is one of our favorites spots to shoot there!

The mauves, purples, and greens in Shannon’s flowers make up one of our favorite color combinations for wedding flowers.

We always love photographing parents as they walk down the aisle with the bride and groom! It’s also so much fun when the flower girls and/or ring bearers stall halfway down the aisle and wonder what to do next!

The reception took place outside right next to the creek. It’s such a fantastic view while you’re eating dinner and dancing!

This wooden ‘S’ was such a cute idea for Shannon and Tyler to use as their guest sign-in.

Centerville-Estates-Chico-Wedding-033

The favors for the guests were cute little bottles of delicious honey.

This was the first time we’ve had donuts instead of cake or cupcakes, and it was phenomenal!

Shannon and Tyler even had their own Mrs and Mr donuts!

Christina and George had their first kiss on the bridge next to Old Town Sacramento, so they decided it would be the perfect place to do their engagement pics! Old Town is such a fun place to shoot with old signs, boardwalks, and brick backgrounds everywhere!

The yellow bridge in the background here is the aforementioned spot where they had their first kiss.

This is one of our absolute favorite buildings in Old Town! We just love the writing everywhere and the long wall of red doors and windows.

George is also a big fan of trains, so we totally had to hit up the train museum in Old Town, too.

Crissy Field is such a fun place to shoot, especially early in the morning when there are hardly any people there! It was nice and foggy the morning of Amy and Ernie’s shoot, too, which made for a moody, gorgeous background for their pics.

Crissy-Field-Engagement-Photos-San-Francisco-01

The view in any direction at Crissy Field is fantastic! The two pics below were basically taken in the same spot, and you can see both the bridge and the San Francisco skyline right there!

Crissy-Field-Engagement-Photos-San-Francisco-02

We love doing pics with all the old, beachy military buildings!

There are always a ton of fisherman on this pier, but we can almost always find a spot where none of them show up in our pics!
