She liked him. The long conversations, the laughter, the lingering thoughts of him throughout the day…Kelly was undone by Tyler. But she lost her heart the day she received a package addressed to her Boston apartment. Having moved to attend photo school, Kelly missed home. Northern California was a part of the world she hung her proverbial hat and rested from the chaos life sometimes threw her way. In Boston, Kelly longed for all things home.

Tyler was a friend from church and someone who made the transcontinental distance shorten. They emailed, IM’d, and chatted as any friends might, but when Kelly slowly unwrapped the box with the California return address, she realized she had given her heart to Ty in the process of communication.

A handwritten note, freshly cut grass from California (a smell she so dearly missed), and a hat from In-N-Out Burger. That’s what she found in the box.

Kelly and Tyler’s friendship unraveled through the years to reveal how perfectly matched their hearts were. They now call San Francisco home…a place filled with handwritten notes, freshly cut grass, and In-N-Out Burger.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with an amazing team of San Francisco wedding professionals to photograph a San Francisco elopement. This shoot was a labor of love and it was an honor working with a stellar team to put together a photoshoot for the fun of it…I can’t wait to work with everyone again soon! It was a day I appreciated and won’t soon forget.

Here’s the thing about Tyler: he’s awesome. Sometimes you meet people and within a few minutes, you know you’re better because of them. Tyler is one of those people. He’s smart, witty, caring, and really hears what you’re saying in between the lines. On top of this, he’s talented. He’s the lead singer for Branches and I lovelovelove their music (check out this Beyonce cover song they recently did!)

Oh, Kelly Kell, we both know you’re all kinds of crazy, but only the best kind of crazy. I love you to bits and pieces. Thanks for the inspiring conversations and becoming a new friend…

Kelly and Ty bragged about San Francisco’s City Hall…and, well…I couldn’t disagree. What a gorgeous backdrop for wedding photos…every square inch is magical. I could shoot there every day and never tire of it. Ever.

After leaving City Hall, we celebrated with libations at Comstock Saloon in San Francisco…no better way to toast than with bubbly.

I just have to take a second and thank Natalie and Jenny of Natalie Bowen Designs for creating a gorgeous bouquet and boutonniere…love them!

We quickly passed through Golden Gate Park for a few more wedding photos…

Kelly, you’re gorgeous. Really.

Kelly and Tyler share a beautiful thing called love and I was thrilled to document every ounce of it.

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
