San Francisco Ed Pingol - Bay Area Wedding Photography: California Wedding Photographer: liana and henry's wedding - the cathedral of st. mary - hotel nikko - san francisco

liana and henry's wedding - the cathedral of st. mary - hotel nikko - san francisco

commentator: monica

to continue the city theme they wanted to impart during their e-session last year, liana & henry planned their wedding with plenty more classic san francisco details. this beautiful couple chose the cathedral of saint mary as the church to be wed and hotel nikko as their reception venue. we began the morning meeting up with the gals at their bridal suite, where the gorgeous bride got ready, along with her closest friends and some relatives who traveled from the philippines for the occasion, including her mom. the sweetie that she is, liana who was ready to go, continued to help her bridesmaids with their finishing touches, including tying their sashes and putting on lashes.

once at the church, we had the opportunity to meet up with henry and his guys. the cathedral is so stunning, offering a wonderful backdrop for their group photos. we also had more time with the bride, who was kept "hidden" from everyone in what appeared to be a "basement dungeon." seriously, one can get lost in this awesome church, with it's winding halls and incredibly high ceilings.

once wed, the couple had chartered a private cable car to take the entire bridal party around for their group photos. we traveled to a couple quintessential sf sights, including atop nob hill and union square. needless to say, the newlyweds and their entourage drew plenty of attention as we roamed about the city!

the excitement continued through their wedding reception, which was a blast for all, including live entertainment provided by d'groove and a photo booth that drew a crowd throughout the entire night.

congratulations, liana & henry! may you enjoy plenty more years of "love and the city!"

Awesome work Ed. It was a pleasure finding a photographer like you with a new cool look (awesome use of flash and HDR?) along with your stellar captures of the day.

Holy Cow - these are outstanding. I'm really digging that mixture of HDR into the images. I've been playing around with that for a while now... but the time it takes on each one... def. only meant for special images. Keep it up dood! you rock star you.
