Margee and Kate

Adm and I love love LOVE photographing weddings mainly because we love couples in love.  All couples in love.  We are staunch supporters of marriage equality for everyone.  So, we were over the top excited when we learned last week that after years of deliberation, the Conservative Rabbinical Assembly has voted in favor of providing guidance to rabbis for performing same-sex marriages.  This decision has been a big deal within the Jewish community, and it was icing on the cake when one of the photos from Margee and Kate's wedding last year was chosen to help illustrate it.  The article and photo have been making the rounds internationally, including in Ha'aretz and The Jewish Daily Forward.

To that we say, “Mazel Tov!”

Caroline + Kiren's Book

Check out Caroline and Kiren's massive wedding album below.  It is GORGEOUS and there's no digital image that can compare with a printed 10.5x14" photograph.  We LOVE making albums for our clients and it's our favorite way to view a collection of images.

Oh hey, Kiki.  

For Japan With Love SF Benefit

Last night, Adm and I attended the silent auction fundraiser for Japan with Love in San Francisco. It was truly inspiring to see not only all of the local businesses that contributed goods, services and time to both the auction and event, but also to see how many people showed up to support the cause.  I mean, the place was packed!  I don't know the total amount of proceeds raised, but the goal was $5000, which will go towards funding 5 Shelterboxes, and I have a feeling it was definitely surpassed.  Here are a few photos from the lovely event.  All of the photos were taken by Adm.

Starbucks Show

If you happen to find yourself in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, oh say on Fillmore between Sacramento and Clay streets to be exact, might I suggest popping into the local Starbucks to check out some photos that I've got hanging on the walls?  Thanks to my good friend Allen, we're having a mini "show" of some of my favorite wedding photos to help reach a new crowd of brides and grooms.  Feel free to grab a promo card which is hanging in an old wooden shutter opposite all of the photos.

For Japan With Love: Silent Auction

As another part of the relief effort for Japan, we are participating in a charity benefit next Tuesday, April 26, at Blu Bungalow in San Francisco.  There are tons of wedding professionals who are donating services and goodies for a silent auction where all proceeds will go to Shelterbox for the relief effort.  If you're in the area, please RSVP (it's free!) and come bid on some super cool stuff!  Some of the awesome bidding items include a make-up lesson by Jane Kim (for regular blog readers she prettied up all the girls in Erika and Colin's wedding last year), a couple of flower garlands by Ashley Meaders (this girl is a creative genius! and we hope to photograph a wedding she's touched one of these days), and prints by uber fabulous L.A. photographer Max Wanger.  We are donating two matted, framed and signed travel prints.  Check them out below:
