Small weddings in our hometown make us so happy! We started our day with Helena and Daniel at the Claremont Hotel where we photographed the couple getting ready and seeing each other for the first time. Afterwards we hustled over to the Temescal neighborhood for their Pizzaiolo wedding. The ceremony took place on the back patio in the late afternoon sun, followed by drinks, dinner, and dancing inside the restaurant. Shooting at Pizzaiolo is such a treat for us: a cozy atmosphere, delicious food, and great people. What's not to love?
After dinner we grabbed the couple for some quick portraits before the sun set. We walked around the block and snagged some portraits in front of cute Oakland homes, rustic fences, and along the Temescal Alley.
These two were such a pleasure to work with and we wish them all the best together. Cheers to couples keeping it Oakland!
