San Francisco City Hall, San Francisco, California

The first time we met Helen and Walter, we were in our pajamas, standing in our foyer with bright-red faces and pounding hearts.

For the first time ever in our lives as photographers, we had overslept and completely forgotten about the meeting we had scheduled with them. As we tucked our tails and excused ourselves to change into real clothes, Helen and Walter just smiled sweetly and tried to laugh it off. This is just how they are – extremely gracious, accepting, and just plain nice. It’s an attitude they demonstrated throughout their entire wedding day. They never seemed stressed out, or anxious, or nervous. They just seemed happy to be there, and happy to be with one another

Helen and Walter’s wedding was our first full wedding at the stunningly beautiful San Francisco City Hall. The vast, open interior, with its soaring high ceilings and neoclassical architecture, is like a giant playground for photographers. And Helen and Walter brought in the perfect blend of colorful lighting that gave this very serious building a dynamic, nightclub-like atmosphere for the reception.

After their wedding, they embarked on an around-the-world honeymoon where they engaged in their favorite joint pastime: eating. We had a blast following their adventures on Facebook. And of course we were extremely jealous the entire time.
