Let us know what you are looking to create and we will help make your wedding photo dreams come true! Your wedding album is one of a kind, and we work together to create a story that won't be forgotten.


Below are some selections from the wedding photography archives showing a variety of artistic photographic techniques available.



Fine Art Wedding Photography:

A classic rebirth in photography brings new options for recording your wedding day! Recreate the old time hand made photographs of your parent's and Grandparent's photo and wedding albums.



The Black & White image has a classical look that is one step removed from the everyday color lives we lead. When custom printed with archival papers, these images will last a lifetime as they are, or they can be a starting point for any of the options below.

Hand tinting is when a black & white image has been colored by hand, thus removed one step more…it becomes a piece of art rather than a standard photo. This process is done digitally on the computer, or traditionally using a variety of oil base pigments that can be applied with great detail, or more subtle, with the resulting image being realistic or abstract.



Another classical variant, Sepia toning, gives black & white photos a warm timeless feel that looks sensational. This is a chemical process which can be done to any black & white print and looks exceptional with the subtle addition of hand tinting.

Infrared photography transcends our concepts of what a black & white wedding photo is supposed to be and is best described as an "image from a dream." Differences from regular Black & White include darker skies, soft, glowing skin tones, and foliage that radiates a warm bath of light. This type of photography shows its best results when done outdoors with good weather.



Color photographs are always going to be in fashion, so don't forget to get them as well. We shoot most of the images in color, and can convert any of them to black and white for you.

Digital cameras have come a long way since their inception. Now we are able to capture display quality images and have them available for viewing in a fraction of the time of traditional film cameras. This means you and your friends and family can view and order photographs from your wedding day celebration online - in most cases before you return from your honeymoon!


Photojournalism is a style of photography that is based on capturing the action as it occurs. We photograph the event as it unfolds to tell a story without having to pose the shots. These images look more natural and compliment the traditional portraiture style photographs. By having two photorapher shooting at the same time, we insure there is a balance in your wedding photography collection.
These creative photography options can be used alone or mixed and matched to make your wedding day memories something to be displayed and cherished for years to come.

The Modern Engagement Session:

An excellent compliment to any contemporary wedding package. This is the pre-wedding casual portrait session for the bride and groom to be. You will be photographed in color or black & white at your favorite location. You will have an hour's worth of photos to choose from on a cd with internet upload and one 11x14 enlargement from this session for presentation on your wedding day. These sessions are great for getting photos made for invitations, thank-you cards, newspaper announcements, as well as gifts for family and friends.


Call today to insure your San Francisco Bay Area wedding date is still available, since most popular wedding dates are reserved 8-12 months in advance. Thank you for your interest in personal photography services.
