And we’re back!

We are finally updating our blog after a long time but because of a very valid reason. We recently became parents to a beautiful and healthy baby boy and have been engrossed in taking care of his every little whim and fancy. We also covered a South Asian wedding recently, a first for us. Sandhya & Rishikesh got married on Nov. 19th, 2010 in a ceremony seeped in tradition which showcased the vibrant South Indian culture.  Even though we covered the wedding from 8am onwards, the bride and groom were up since 5am for all the various rituals that lead up to the actual wedding ceremony.

And here’s the wedding slideshow of Sandhya and Rishikesh’s South Indian wedding!

So we finally had the opportunity to shoot a ‘Trash the Dress’ session with Lien, our trooper of a volunteer bride, along with her husband Robert at Baker Beach in San Francisco, CA. A form of photography, ‘Trash the Dress’ concerns the bride taking her expensive wedding dress and subjecting it to some kind of distress; all the while wearing it! The contrast created by the elegant dress and the environment in which it is being photographed, coupled with the zaniness of the concept, is what makes it interesting for photographers.

With the ever present fog keeping the sun out, the photo shoot still turned out to be a memorable one as we waded knee-deep in cold, sea water and directed Lien in trashing her dress. If there was anything we learned on this shoot, it was to throw up our hands in the air with each crashing wave in order to keep our cameras safe from getting a bath.:) Here are selected images from Lien’s ‘Trash the Dress’ session.

Weather has always played an important role for photographers specializing in wedding photography; outdoor portrait sessions do turn out to be more pleasant with Mother Nature’s cooperation and some sunshine. Then, there are days when one has to go against all odds to get the job. On May 28th, 2010, in the middle of a heavy downpour, we shot the wedding of Karen and Joost at the San Francisco City Hall.

As the wedding ceremony and reception was a small yet elegant affair, the couple decided to do the portrait session at some beautiful locations around the city. The day started off at the Legion of Honor, a museum displaying a collection of ancient and European art with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge; when not enveloped in dense fog that is. After the museum we headed off to the oldest San Francisco landmark: The Palace of Fine Arts. An artistic wonder built after 1906, The Palace of Fine Arts served as a stunning background for the couple as it was fenced off for renovations at the time and there was nary a visitor in sight.

The San Francisco City Hall is a favorite among couples looking for a quick civil ceremony to bind them in Holy Matrimony. The historic architecture inside and out has served the community for more than eighty years. The wedding ceremony for Karen and Joost was held at the fourth floor gallery, a serene and cozy place filled with sunlight coming through a huge window above. We observed on Karen and Joost’s special day that no matter how big the venue is, nothing compares to the intimacy of sharing a precious moment in life in the company of friends and loved ones at the San Francisco City Hall. Even with the weather not being on our side, it turned out to be a perfect day after all!
