San Francisco Wedding – St Patrick’s church – Omni Hotel – Julia Morgan Ballroom – Merchants Exchange Building

Several months back I had the opportunity to work as a second photographer for Noah Hawthorne during Megan and Brian’s San Francisco wedding at St Patrick’s Cathedral. The day started with extra coverage of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. Then it was a quick trip across the street to cover the guys getting ready at the Omni Hotel. Next  it was on to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the big event. After the wedding ceremony it was time for a cable car trolley ride to the San Francisco piers to take some ocean side photos. The day’s coverage ended where it started at the Julia Morgan ballroom in the Merchants Exchange building on the 15th floor. Thanks for inviting me along Noah, it was a fun day and a beautiful wedding.

That shot of the bride and groom in front of the bridge is really superb, as it the rest of the set. That venue looks amazing as well.

Great photos with some wonderful captured moments. Your couple must be very happy. Well done!
