Sam and Natalya found me through mutual friends, and I'm so glad they did.  They were expecting a new baby, so we actually did two shots - a separate portrait shoot in their wedding gear before their wedding, and then the big day itself.  

For their pre-wedding portraits, we went around the North Shore and captured the city skyline in the background.  Their actual wedding ceremony took place at Phipps Conservatory in Oakland.  It is a gorgeous venue filled with more flowers than you can imagine.  After their small, intimate ceremony, we went to their reception venue; a warm and cosy event space at The Willow.
