Michelle + Ryan’s San Francisco City Hall Wedding

It’s a special day when you have the opportunity to capture a new family coming together. Michelle and Ryan are a product of much love and care, so it made perfect sense they would have their closests at their side to share in such a beautiful story.

The day began in San Francisco’s gorgeous and historic Fairmont Hotel. As they finished readying, they took a deep breath and prepared to see one another for the first time. It never gets old. Witnessing the moment a bride sees her groom, and a groom sees his bride is so special you want to bottle the moment forever. It’s a moment two people stand looking at the rest of their lives, as two families become one. There are 7.1 billion people on this earth, and in this moment, two of them are choosing to be with one another for the rest of their days. This day was meaningful, full of joy, and lovely in every way.

Michelle and Ryan, it was an honor to be a small part of your big love story. You are generous at your core, and it was wonderful to spend time with your families and feel so welcomed. Thank you for who you are, and what you will accomplish in this world together. We love you guys!
