Harris & Leslie :: San Francisco Engagement

Harris & Leslie booked me for their October wedding a few months back. Yesterday, we found time to photograph their engagement photos around San Francisco. We had a blast cruising around the city and shooting in parks, Coit Tower, Grace Cathedral, and random architectural elements. Thanks to Harris & Leslie for an incredible dinner in North Beach! See you both in two weeks for your wedding!

Wedding :: Pranjal & Parshv :: San Francisco Indian Ceremony

Parshv & Pranjal held their traditional Indian wedding ceremony on the San Francisco bay this past weekend with over 300 people in attendance. This was my first time photographing an Indian wedding. I was shooting for Brett Butterstein and will be sure to link to the slideshow he hosts once he gets the 5000+ images edited! Brett was with Pranjal and I spent the getting ready moments with Parshv. Here is a sneak preview:

Obama :: Elko, Nevada

Today, on my way to San Francisco, I timed my driving so I could stop and photograph Barack Obama's rally in Elko, Nevada. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed by his speech--it was just a stump speech. He was speaking to the CNN crowd instead of the folks from Elko. I thought it would have been great had he come out and said something about mining, guns, and small desert towns rather than his AIG, Wall street to Main street, I say this stuff all the time all over the country, talk. Nevertheless, it was good to be shooting a political event. Here are a few images....

Wedding :: Rene & Matt :: Stanley, Idaho

Rene and Matt's wedding weekend was action packed. If folks weren't surfing the wake of a ski boat, cliff jumping, rope swinging, soaking in a hot spring, dancing, drinking, laughing, or crying--it was late and everyone was passed out in their cabins. It was an incredibly beautiful weekend with temps in the mid 70's and not a cloud in the sky. Congratulations Matt & Rene! As everyone was saying over and over, "Thanks for getting married!"
