Vidal & Debi are so awesome! They were so fun and a joy to be around. I especially love the way Vidal looks at Debi. His eyes light up each and every time! Debi had mentioned that she is a little camera shy, I think she is beautiful. I especially love her baby blues- Franck Sinatra would be jealous!! Don’t you agree?

They are both transplants to the Bay Area and as such don’t have family here. Therefore to share their special day I have posted a slideshow at the end of this post so everyone who was here in spirit only can see the days events!

I am inspired by many things! I would say in my top 10 places to find inspiration is in Art, regardless of the era. Border’s might hate me- I tend to plop myself in front of the Art & Photography section for hours thumbing through all the beautiful books. One iconic image which is burned into my mind is that of Grant Wood’s American Gothic. (I must also add I was fortunate to see this piece in Mardid’s Museo ThysenBornemisza while on exhibit borrowed from the Art Institute of Chicago)I would like to thank Vidal & Debi for playing along. Here is my version of this iconic image:

and a bit of a spin:

Another item of inspiration for me is architecture. I love the architecture in San Francisco’s city hall. Here we see Vidal waiting for his bride and her best man doing his duty of holding her purse. 😉

I love the emotion of weddings and especially the interaction between parents and children. Here is a heartfelt hug from mother & son.

A proud mother can’t have enough photos!

How fun is the groom:

After the ceremony we headed over to The Presidio and did portraits at Chrissy Fields with the beautiful Golden Gate Bride in the background. (maternity images to follow in a separate post- stay tuned!)

Congratulations Vidal & Debi!!! I wish you much happiness!!
