A Travelers Guide To Love In San FranciscoSeptember 27, 2016

When Tim & Johanna inquired about their San Francisco elopement, I was beyond excited for many reasons. Of course, I love San Francisco and the Bay, it’s one of my favorite places and to capture such a special moment would be incredible. I also knew that I’d be able to visit my younger brother who lives there.

I decided to pack up the family for a little vacation on the West Coast. It was my daughter’s first time flying, which was so exciting for us and her. We certainly had a fun filled week, hanging with old friends and doing new things with Emilia. The real reason, however, was to be with this wonderful couple who traveled all the way from Germany to celebrate their 10 year anniversary, to the day, by eloping in San Francisco City Hall.

Before I tell you about their day, let me just start by saying something about Tim and Johanna. They are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. They’re quick to laugh and find humor in almost anything and the gentleness they have towards each other is something to envy. After spending the entire day together, I did indeed miss them.

The day was finally had finally come. With all the planning, emails back and forth, here we were! When I arrived at Triple Twist Salon, Johanna was in the middle of her beautification while Tim was taking it all in. Johanna had hand made her bouquet the day before as well as Tim’s boutonniere. Just amazing!

From there, we headed straight to City Hall. If you’re not familiar with City Hall weddings, it’s very much like going to the DMV. Well, not exactly.. haha. There are lines and tickets with numbers being called while,”Now serving number 1071 in Lane B” flashes on LED’s in the hallway. But you aren’t waiting to deal with your expired registration, no! You are there on the happiest day- your wedding day! Imagine a DMV of LOVE!

Once the paper work was good to go, we walked to the bottom of the grand stairway for the ceremony. If you never been inside SF City Hall, I highly recommend it. The building is absolutely stunning. The ceremony was quick and official.

What follows was a day filled with taking in the sites as husband and wife in the great city by the bay. A Powell & Market trolley, the Lion Street Steps, a stroll through the Palace of Fine Arts, a view from Sutro Baths and a kiss at Battery Spencer is how these travelers loved in San Francisco.

Good to be luckyMay 3, 2016

As I lifted the 67 up towards my eye, before a chance to change settings, I accidentally fired the shutter capturing what you see here. Sometimes it’s good to be lucky.

The place you find yourselfMarch 28, 2016

Some of the most exciting times in life, no doubt, is hearing that someone is expecting a baby and naturally the news of the little bundles arrival. It’s really hard to convey the power of these emotions, as they take hold of you as a parent. It’s something felt down in your core, in the very place that centers you. Impressed upon constantly, in every moment you share now with your child, this place fixed in your body, somehow guides you to be the Mommy or Daddy you are.

Mike & Rachel: A New Haven WeddingAugust 23, 2015

I know I’ve said it before and every wedding photographer probably feels the same way, but I have the best job.  I literally press a button on a machine and all it does is captures love and this wedding had no shortage of that to go around.  It was awesome for me because Rachel and I have known each other for some time.  I met her through one of our long time friends, Matt, when he and I were battle DJ’s, turntablists if you will.  So yeah, that’s like 100 years ago.. haha.    It was great, Matt flew in from Canada to spin some beats and another long time friend, Gene, had his band rocking the party.   Quite a reunion of friends and family celebrating with the bride and groom.  I even think there’s a video of me doing the running man with Rachel out there somewhere.. yikes!

 

Mike & Rachel, congrats to you both and thank you for having me be apart of such an amazing day.

-Tim

Family Vacation 2015: Cape Ann Adventures Part 1August 11, 2015

Last week was perfect.  It was Emilia’s 2nd trip to the beach but 1st that she could actually move about on her own.  We explored a local farm, where she made friends with a baby donkey.  We hung out with Nana in Gloucester and found some really big anchors.  Emilia was surrounded by her amazing great Aunts and Uncles.   I got to watch my little lady, full of delight, as she ran up and down the beach and in and out of tide pools.  Most importantly, our family made new memories in this timeless place that will last a lifetime.  We love Gloucester!

This is the place: CaliforniaJuly 20, 2015

In April, I had the pleasure of working with my good friend, Neil Landino, in California.  We shot one of his friends weddings at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos.  Needless to say, it was an incredible experience and all around great time.  When he first asked if I could help shoot the wedding, I said yes, of course, and started thinking about what else I would do while on the west coast.  My brother and sister live in Venice Beach, so getting into trouble with them was a must.  Coincidentally, another good friend and his family from Connecticut were on vacation in the same neighborhood.  I saw them and took some family portraits on the beach.  It also happened that my sister was graduating from Second City Hollywood the night I arrived.   I got to see her perform live and it was beyond amazing!  Maura and I also had a chance to work with each other.  Along with the help of another good friend, Kelsey; wedding planner extraordinaire, and my Aunt and Uncle; a creative dynamic duo, we put together an editorial shoot in the mountains above Thousand Oaks.  It was a jam packed week of visiting, collaborating, and celebrating with family and friends.  I can’t wait to do it again!  Below is a small sample of images from this memorable trip.  Everything was captured on a Pentax 645n with a variety of different film stocks.

Enjoy,

Tim

Bryan & Lisa’s WeddingMay 14, 2015

Every wedding day should be filled with as much joy and love as Bryan & Lisa’s.  Capturing a wedding like theirs is a gift and reminds me how much I love what I do.  During the evening, the father of the bride shared a beautiful sentiment, “Love is just a word until two people give it meaning.”  Well on this night, a whole bunch of people came together to show their love for that very reason.

 

Congrats again you guys! Enjoy a few images from your special day!

-Tim
