The girl behind the camera

undefinedWhy is my right arm up like that!? I am seriously convinced that I hold the camera vertically a little weird! ^.^

…and for some fun, here is the result!.  They are soooo cute, right?!

:Wedding: Patricia + Paul

captured by erika, photography, ring, kisses, chocolate, candy, wedding, san francisco, bay area, I fell in love with Patricia and Paul from our very first meeting. In fact, the wedding consultation felt more like hanging out with long-time friends than a business meeting. We talked about travel, they taught me a bit about Port (they are both proud Portuguese) and Paul had me cracking up the whole time! They are super fun, laid-back and together exude so much goodness that it is hard to remain unaffected by their personalities. I am so honored that they have allowed Michael and me to document their love. Here are some photos from their day. ^.^captured by erika, photography, wedding, bride, car, Bentley, san francisco, bay area, sophisticated, romantic, dreamycaptured by erika, details, butterfly, photography, wedding, san francisco, bay areacaptured by erika, photography, wedding, photographer, bride and groom, san francisco, bay area, processional captured by erika, photographer, photography, wedding, bentley, romantic, dreamy, san francisco, timeless, bay areaundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedcaptured by erika, photography, photographer, wedding, dreamy, romantic, sophisticated, san francisco, bay areacaptured by erika, photography, wedding, photographer, bride and groom, romantic, dreamy, love, san francisco, bay areacaptured by erika, photography, photographer, couple, dreamy, romantic, ivy, window pane, san francisco, bay areaundefinedcaptured by erika, wedding, photographer, photography, ivy, window pane, couple, dreamy, romantic, san francisco, bay areaundefined
