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...
Oakland Wedding Photographer
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!!!!
