Oakland Wedding Photographer

M+B Oakland Engagement Session

M+B wanted to capture the various neighborhoods in Oakland where they love spending time together.  We started at Piedmont Park (one of my faves for portraits because I am a tree hugger),  strolled through Temescal which is fabulous and colorful, and then landed at Lake Merritt (looking all classy and pretty I might add) and saw the sunset.   The variety of textures and colors we were working in provided beautiful backdrops which remind me of why I love the Bay Area so much.  These lovebirds are saying "I-Do" in a couple of weeks, and I am so excited to photograph their wedding.   Enjoy a few of my favorites below...

Pizza Love

Take the pizza parlor, Forge, in Oakland's Jack London Square. Sprinkle it with beaming family and friends formally dressed. Top it off with a beautiful couple to exchanging vows on the opposite coast from where they grew up, and you end up with a perfect ceremony of complimentary contrasts.This wasn't a wedding as much as it was journey to a place where the past and future came together for a celebration amid the comforting smells of baking pizza dough.  

Congratulations, Andy and Anna!!!  Smile on forever!!!!
