San Francisco Ed Pingol - Bay Area Wedding Photography: California Wedding Photographer: vi and vince's "pre-shoot"

Jul 2, 2007

vi and vince's "pre-shoot"

guest commentator: monica

denise and clarence, mutual friends of our's, decided to gift an e-session for vi and vince as their wedding gift. (they're such cool friends!) vi and vince are newlyweds, having recently had their civil ceremony, and will be on their way to cabo san lucas for their intimate destination wedding in a couple of weeks.

when they asked if they could bring their bridal attire, we assumed that vince had already seen vi in her wedding gown, though he had not! of course, we had to set up a a "first meeting" that we encourage all our couples to do just before the wedding ceremony, so they can have a few private moments to enjoy their "first glance" of one another and have it captured on camera.
so instead of a "trash the dress" session, i like to call this their "keep-the-dress-clean" pre-shoot.

baker beach was again the selected location and again, we were graced with awesome weather! (and several "full moons" of the nudists hanging out, enjoying the day.) the barracks provide a great backdrop, giving the scene a rustic, old-world spanish feel, a prelude to their destination wedding in mexico. and we couldn't help but take advantage of the platform with stairs, creating the illusion of a wedding cake tiers. this couple makes a beautiful cake topper!

congratulations, vi & vince! have a beautiful and fun wedding ceremony in mexico!

okay, the handprints with the rings are too cute.

too cute ed. so quit it. j/k

have you looked around the presidio or even fort mason for picture spots? on the presidio they have those great looking captain home's and there is a nice rampart overlooking the bay in fort mason [behind the hostel] that has the gg bridge in the background and a cool cannon. i'm sure you could find other neat places to shoot around there too.

I like the cake topper look. The steps for that one photo looks like the cake layers.

Best ring shot ever! Hands down. Pun intended. Great job as always Ed!

The sand shot is just the coolest

They're all good, but I really like 1 & 2! The handprints in the sand with the rings is just great!

#5 is growing on me, but I kinda wish the couple was just a tad bit more in focus. Not much, just a little bit

Good job!

Love the hand prints in the sand, though it's a little hard to see the rings.
