Courtney and Tyler are two amazing individuals from Arizona with some of the biggest smiles I've ever had the pleasure of photographing! They lived in San Francisco while Tyler was in dental school which is why tying the knot in the San Francisco Bay Area was an obvious choice for them. They rented out the Fourth Floor North Gallery for their ceremony where Courtney's brother officiated and both their families looked on. It was a very emotional time, particularly because Courtney had lost both her father and brother recently. She carried their photos on her bouquet to hold them close to her heart, as her mother walked her down the aisle. Their vows had everyone crying and laughing simultaneously, photographers included!
One of my favorite moments of the day was photographing their first look. Tyler was a little nervous but once he saw his bride, there was no wiping the smile off his face! I also have to mention what a great send off these two had! Their families lined up outside of the iconic City Hall doors as the couple ran through a flurry of pink ribbons. You can always have a proper send off, even at City Hall!
We ended their session at Baker Beach where we had to capture them with the always photogenic Golden Gate Bridge. Congratulations Courtney and Tyler! I am so glad I was able to be part of such a special day for the two of you.
I also have to give a big thanks to Susie Chhuor for doing an amazing job on Hair and makeup, not that I'd expect anything less than perfection. And of course a big thank you goes out to Kayla Fletcher for being such a fantastic, second photographer. You ladies make my job even more amazing!
