A long-time family friend, I was in the same class as one of her three older brothers and remember L as being the tiny Miss Bumble Bee in the brothers trampoline based wrestling tournaments. She is now very much an adult, pursuing her masters and her lifetime with high school sweetheart, musician H.

After covering their engagement in the wintery weather of December, it was fun to cover them on what evolved into what we can call a sunny San Francisco day, especially for summer!

It's always fun to watch the dynamic between brides and bridesmaids whether I'm the photographer or a guest. Some bridesmaid appear annoyed and I wonder if there's jealousy, or bridezilla, or just a general sense of not being a true friend, but L's single bridesmaid was EVERYTHING a bridesmaid should be. A friend who is ready to help, a friend who is happy enough in her own relationship that there's no envy in yours, and a friend who can't contain herself because despite her happiness for you, is honestly a little bit sad you'll no longer be roommates.

Following tradition, they were adamant about not seeing each other before the ceremony, and I barely convinced Hunter to look at me for this photo I was trying to create, worried that I was somehow trying to encourage a sneak peek at his bride. I would never!

While the Observation Post offers beautiful views of the city which creates a great stage for the wedding ceremony, it doesn't offer much in the way of finding a place for more intimate photos of the couple I like to take just after the ceremony when they are in the newest of newly-wedded bliss, and allow them to let it sink in before they go about greeting and thanking guests. But at L's suggestion, and her dad's expert driving, we managed to sneak away back into the woods of the Presidio for some of these.
