Getting Gussied Up

I’ve been friends with Erika and Mike since High School, and so when Erika asked me to photograph the “getting ready” portion of her wedding, I was excited to do it. Erika and Mike’s love story has been one of here and there- it began in High School, continued in college and then then onto their lives in San Francisco- a place that perfectly fits their personalities. So, photographing Erika as she prepared for one of the biggest days of her life was an honor. Not only did I get to be with her during that special time, but since she had another photographer for the wedding and reception, I got to enjoy myself as a guest for the rest of the evening. Of course I couldn’t resist snapping away all night, and I included some of those shots here as well. And the wedding was a blast! Yes, that is a team of break-dancers giving a performance half-way through the reception. It was an unforgettable night.
