Julia Morgan Ballroom, Merchants Exchange Building, San Francisco, California

Despite living in San Francisco, we had only two weddings here this year, with Caitlin and Cyrus’ being one of them. In addition to getting to stay in our hometown, their celebration, at the historic Merchants Exchange Building, with the reception in the glamorous Julia Morgan Ballroom, gave us the rare opportunity to shoot both the ceremony and reception indoors. The extraordinary light in the Merchants Exchange Building was some of the most interesting we’ve seen, and luckily we had a full night of Persian dancing to go along with it.
Since first photographing Caitlin and Cyrus’ engagement session we have become fast friends. Cyrus keeps us informed on the latest in hip-hop music, and we all talk about what’s going to happen next on the vampire TV show True Blood. Now we just have to wait for the next season to start before opening up a pack of O-Positive TruBlood with them.
