Fatima + Andrew
got married in November 2015
I didn’t have the chance to meet in person with Andrew and Fatima prior to our photo session as I usually prefer to do with all my clients. We only had exchanged few emails and had spoken on the phone. But when I met them at the day of their wedding ceremony it felt like we knew each other from years. Andrew is a pilot and he was dressed up with his official uniform. Fatima looked as if she was a Persian princess with her prince. Both were very elegant.
Getting married at San Francisco City Hall is always beautiful to photograph, especially in the autumn. The sun is low and creates a warm backlight when doing the bride and groom portrait session outside in the City Hall surrounding. The leaves of the trees appear in a brownish golden tones.
That day San Francisco City Hall wasn’t crowded as usual with people getting married. The main stairway was closed for an event and we weren’t allowed to take photos there. Despite of that we asked the planner and I was able to snap some shots of the couple there. We had to improvise because the time and space we were allowed was very limited. In retrospective, it might’ve been a good circumstance of serendipity, because thinking on our feet in an already emotional situation sparked my imagination. I’ll let you enjoy the wedding images and decide for yourself how it turned out.
