Things you see when shooting in SF.

One of my favorite things about San Francisco is that you never know what’s going to happen.  Last weekend, I shot a wedding on the Embarcadero, and just as we were going to do posed portraits, thousands of Giants fans came streaming towards us.  So we crossed the street, found a little quiet space, and waited for the moment to pass.

I love taking photographs of this sweet little girl, wearing antique dresses her grandmother saved for her.

Artist Crush – Ron Hicks

http://www.ronhicks.com

 

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted one of my artist crushes, too long in fact, and that just means that I’ve been saving up some good stuff.  This week, I have a crush on Ron Hicks – he’s a contemporary artist, but I think his work evokes earlier eras, and the old Dutch masters.  I love when contemporary art takes inspiration from days gone by and does something fresh with it.  Take a moment and click through to his work – I think you’ll find it worth your time.

I had so much fun putting together yesterday’s post with candid shots that I started going through the archives & I think an intervention may soon be necessary as I’m falling in love with candids all over again.  Here’s some more from Colleen & Matt’s pretty wedding at the Peninsula Club.

Sometimes I can be a bit slow.  I’m finally updating my actual website (I’ve spent far more time on this blog in the last few years and the portfolio has gotten neglected).  In the (slow) process of doing that, I realized that I don’t really feature a lot of what I do at events and weddings, and that is take candid shots.  Secretly (or not so secret since I’m telling all of you), they’re some of my favorite photos to take.  I love watching people and catching that moment when the smile is right, the expression is natural, and the moment is pretty.  Here’s a few favorites from a wedding reception I did last fall.  I’m going to dig into the archives and hopefully bring you a few more posts along these lines.
