“I need someone who knows struggle as well as I do. Someone willing to hold my feet in their lap on days it is too difficult to stand. The type of person who gives exactly what I need before I even know I need it. The type of lover who hears me even when I do not speak; this is the type of understanding I demand, the type of lover I need” – Rupi Kaur (Milk and Honey)
“Not a day goes by, that I don’t wish you know how much I love you · Not a day goes by, that I don’t wish better for you · My love is like a river, it is like a fountain; it is longing and flowing for you · No matter what hard times we’ve been through, My love has kept on growing for you · I hope you can see, that it is you I need · I know we are bound for a higher life, where we won’t bear anymore strife · Yet, in the still of this life; not a day goes by, that I’m not praying for you, and still loving you.” – Amanda M. Dawson
This was my first time visiting (and photographing) at the Sutro Baths/Lands End, and I cannot brag enough about how this location is an absolute dream. So many of Jose and Winnie’s images amongst the misty grove of Cypress trees, look like they were straight out of a fairytale, especially with that stunning dress of hers. Everything was truly perfect, and I am really looking forward to their wedding in only a few short weeks.
“The sun upon the rocks, And the breakers on the bar; And a line of tossing shadows – Where the royal palm trees are; The brilliant, cloud-filled heaven, The strong voiced wind roaring by, And the blazing red hibiscus, And a lazy, deep “lanai”; A soft, liquid sound of singing, As the day draws nigh to night, While the purple darkness deepens — All these things are my delight” ~ Christine Siebeneck
This bridal session was photographed on film by Marin Kristine, on a rugged black sand beach near the Golden Gate bridge in Sausalito, California. Inspired by organic earthy elements, the rings were chosen for their natural raw state, and the brides styled in a bohemian barefooted manner. Everything was meant to feel relaxed, organic, and ethereal from gowns to floral.
