Marimba & Steve's Wedding, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA

There are a handful of people in my life that no matter what happens I will always feel connected to. Not just in a friendly way, but in a family way. These people mean so much to me, that I would do anything for them. You need a kidney? You got it. Combining my love for a person like this, and my love for photography gives my heart wings. It means so so much to me. Marimba is my sister, my oldest friend. She taught me how to become an artist by giving me insight and confidence when I didn’t have much. I could go on and on about her, but if you really want some perspective about how special she is, please listen to this wonderful podcast she was just on: QuestHands

As you can imagine, when Marimba & Steve asked me to be their wedding photographer, I flipped out with joy. Although it was a brisk day, it was such a warm wedding, comfortably nestled in the heart of Golden Gate Park. And as GG Park means a lot to Mim and I, it was incredibly fitting. I adored that we got to photograph with the SF mime troupe, which was a welcome side note to the day, and very apropos to our current political climate. Before owning her own pilates studio, Mim was an incredible dancer and performer, so it was wonderful for me to see her on stage again <3 That said, my favorite picture that day was of Steve during the ceremony, looking at Mim with tears in his eyes. Ugh, it was just such a beautiful wedding and I’ll cherish it forever. I love you guys!
