Rooftop Party! (City View, Metreon - Lexus Laws of Attraction Photography Exhibition)

Actor Jamie King

   We're big fans of rooftop parties for the views.  This one overlooked Yerba Buena Park, with the MOMA resting its chin at the end. We sipped pinot noir, perfectly effervescent with age, and enjoyed a lovely sushi bar which made uni (sea urchin) our next favorite thing.  Happily, uni tends to be more sustainable than many seafood choices, allowing us to dine with a clearer conscience :) 
    It was also great to run into friends and meet some new ones.  It wasn't hard to find things in common, as so many of the guests were either musicians, actors, or in the fashion industry.  (We both play music, Sam used to be in the film/theater industry, and Ariel's spent plenty of time at the catwalk).  Ariel even got help from a new friend to convince Sam to go to the next fashion week in NY.  She was pretty happy about that. 

    Actor Jason Schwartzman

The sleeve and drape of her dress was wonderful.

Sam takes photos with a Leica M9.

Beautiful white dress and shoulder reveal.

 Ariel only chooses cocktails that match her nails.  Just kidding ;)

   Ariel had a blast taking fab fashion photos for her blog, Street Threads.  Check out her blog for more fashion candy.

Pool Party after a Destination Wedding

    We have the travel bug.  Ariel's been on Kayak every day for the past two weeks looking up flights to Colombia, Puerto Rico, Argentina... really anywhere we can get away and have an excuse to put on our swimsuits.  Once we get there, we'll pitch a story to a mag editor, meet some great people, and capture some compelling photographs.
    And then there are destination weddings... our absolute favorite!  You mean we get to travel, and we've already been greenlighted for a photography project in an awesome new locale?  Yes, please. We took the photographs above, the day after a beautiful wedding in Grass Valley, soaking in the rays before our trip back home.  Bring on the summer high season!

San Francisco Engagement Photos with Cecilia + Patrick

  Cecilia + Patrick are such a stunning couple! We spent a classic foggy San Francisco summer day in Golden Gate Park with them last Sunday to take their engagement photos, but you can't tell how freezing it was from these images, because we were having so much fun. Congratulations to you both on your engagement!
