Ninth Annual Émigré Community Gala with Jewish Family and Children Services

On February 6th, hundreds of us gathered together at the historic Palace Hotel to celebrate and strengthen our community in the Bay Area and Israel. The event raised more than $400,000 to support families hit by the economic crisis, provide scholarships for youth, care
for frail seniors, and help children who have experienced trauma. Multiple generations—including a record number of young
leaders, enjoyed world-class entertainment and danced the night away. It was a great party for a vital cause!

Raquel and Jonathan | Jewish Orthodox Wedding

Raquel and Jonathan decided to tie the knot at the JCCSF. Actually I didn’t expect it to be a full Jewish Orthodox wedding but it was a nice surprise. Raquel and Jonathan are amazing couple deeply in love and it was pleasure to photograph at their wedding.

Amy+Benson | Fort Mason Chapel | Hotel Whitcomb | San Francisco

Amy and Benson are one of a kind! They’ve managed to create superdynamic wedding I rarely see. There was such a powerful positive vibe. And Amy was a center of that storm. I recall one of the bridesmaids say: “Can you feel it? That’s Amy’s vibe, she’s always like that”. And as usual it was pretty easy to shoot. No matter where you point your camera, there is always something happens.

Nancy+Lowell | San Francisco Theological Seminary | Ondine Sausalito

Nancy and Lowell had an intimate wedding at the San Francisco Theological Seminary followed by a reception at the Ondine Restaurant in Sausalito. It was easy and fun to photograph.
I vividly recall Nancy’s first phone call. I was at the SF Zoo with my family at that time. We had a short conversation and five minutes later she reserved my services online. We never met before. That was fastest booking ever. When I saw Nancy and Lowell for the first time in my studio, I instantly knew, we are perfect match.

Tina+Kevin | Sunol Valley Golf Club Wedding
