Congratulations George! The Kennedy Center Honors George Lucas

Such a well deserved honor was handed to George Lucas by the Kennedy Center on Sunday night saluting 5 legendary artists for their lifetime contribution to American culture.  "You've changed movies absolutely forever" said Stephen Spielberg during the award ceremony.  

There will be a televised showing of the evening on December 29th on CBS, 9pm-11pm & we are thrilled that this image of his family will be included in the event slideshow & published in Vanity Fair Magazine for an article on his amazing wife, Mellody Hobson.

A Day in May features a Classic San Francisco Wedding

One of our favorite invitation designers (and long time friends), A Day in May Studio, recently featured the wedding of Gretchen & Spencer that we photographed at Grace Cathedral and The Bohemian Club.  Nothing could describe the day more than their apt title "Classic San Francisco".  We feel so lucky to have met and worked with Gretchen & Spencer and their families.  We're excited to be a part of her sister's upcoming wedding at Cavallo Point in 2016.  Thank you to the planning by the fabulous Stacy McCain.   Thank you for the feature (and your always beautiful designs) ladies!

In case you weren't ready the first time...

That's ok neither were we.  But our new website is done (mostly) and we want to share it with you.  We'd love to hear what you think.  And if you just want to look through some photos of some amazing weddings that we've been a part of and documented over the years we'd like for you to do that too.  Thank you for being our cool friends, family, clients and co-workers.  We feel pretty lucky that we know you!

New Year New Website
