Z & A {Wedding} | Bay Area Wedding Photographer

So two days after Christmas, with both of them home from college and all the families in town, this adorable couple was married in the Oakland LDS temple.  It was a gorgeous, but chilly, day for a wedding!  The wedding party had me cracking up with their silliness, and the families were soo supportive and kind.  It was such  a privilege to be a part of this memorable day. Thanks for letting me be a part of it, you guys! 🙂

    The last black and white- the kiss with the church in the background is just divine!!! Everything is exquisite about this photo – the lighting is just so and the composition is too. Beautiful!!!! The vertical triangles really bring the eye up and away …!

    Oh my goodness, her train is so cool! I love the one where you have it spread out to the side while they are sitting. I also particularly love the slight wide angle on the horizontal BW with the temple in the background. Nice work!

    Gorgeous! You actually get a feel for how laid back the bride and groom are. I am in love with the blue shoes and matching blue ties.
