It’s no secret that I love an intimate wedding, and actually specialize in photographing them. There’s something so perfect about a small event. To me, they feel especially warm and loving, and I think it’s because the focus is less on the details of managing a large party and more on the wedding itself. Here’s a favorite that I shot at Waterbar in San Francisco. The wedding and reception took place in a private room on the second floor at this pretty restaurant overlooking the Bay Bridge. We took advantage of the location on the Embarcadero for some iconic San Francisco shots, and also of a pretty brick, university campus across the street for a more private setting for family photos. The couple was expecting their first child, and they had a small wedding with just immediate family. As you can see below, the love was just palpable and it was a wedding to remember. Oh, and the lovely Shana Astrachan of Fox & Doll did the bride’s hair and makeup.
