Candid, Creative, and Fun Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is not a photoshoot. It isn’t endless posing and kissing.
It is your epic celebration, and I am just there to document your story.

I want you to look at your photos and remember how you felt. I want you to see your photos on the wall and retell stories about them in the future. 

How I photograph your wedding is ultimately how you remember your day. That is not something I take lightly.

My mission as a Bay Area wedding photographer is to document the love of the day for you, your guests, and for generations yet to come, so you can remember how much joy there is in your lives.

Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Hi! My name is Ian and I’m a San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographer! I know being in front of the camera can be awkward, so don’t worry! I prefer a candid approach.

But when I do instruct you, I will make you laugh, guaranteed! If I can’t do that, then I will just do a handstand and try to impress you at least.

I like country music, am an avid yogi, and can talk sports all day.

Photos that remind you how you felt during your wedding day

 Wedding Photography in San Francisco

As a native Bay Area wedding photographer, I have been fortunate to have grown up in one of the best places in the world to elope. In addition to the great cuisine, attractions, and weather, Northern California is home to some amazing natural landscapes and elopement venues. Redwood trees, ocean views, and wineries are all a short drive from the City.
