Laurent & Helena. San Francisco, CA.
San Francisco Wedding Photographer

Laurent and Helena’s wedding day was certainly a true representation of who they are as individuals and as a couple. They were married in the backyard of a house at the top of Bernal Heights in San Francisco. The yard stretched down into 5 tiers. The top tier was where the ceremony took place as well as where the Kally Price Jazz Band played. The next two tiers were occupied by friends who played different instruments as well as a champagne station. The 4th tier was the oyster bar and the final tier was the barbecue and fire pit where Laurent’s father and team (of Butler & Chef ) prepared food for the all the guests (complete with a tree house for city viewing).

This was a day unlike anything I have experienced but I can’t say I’m surprised. I wouldn’t have expected anything less from these two. Love you guys very much.

Helena is also a talented wedding photographer and you can check out her work here.

A huge thank you goes out to my friend Bianca Morra for 2nd shooting this wedding with me. She’s incredibly talented and I look forward to collaborating with her more this year.

Music by Duke Ellington.

P.S. The hat/wreath used during the wedding were hand made by the talented Behida Dolic. The wonderful floral design was by Jessy Brown.

What exactly was it about this day…

Was it that one of my favorite tracks from Sigur Ros was being played as she walked down the steps to marry him? Was it something about the way he looked at her and held her? Was it the sweet vows and promises they made to each other? Was it the way they loved each other and everyone around them so wholeheartedly? How about the way their friends all talked about them as being their heroes and role models? But perhaps it was how she held her father’s photograph close to her heart throughout the day. I think it was all of that and more that made it impossible for me to hold back my tears as I captured memories for these two incredible people. I love them so much and I will never forget the gift they gave me of being able to tell their story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kambiz & Sara.

Music by Sigur Ros.

A tremendous thank you goes to Amari Kenoly for shooting this wedding with me. He’s an incredible friend and artist. Please do yourself a favor and check out his site.
