Maria + Alvin were married on August 1st. We had such a fun weekend at their wedding in San Francisco. Not only was it an awesome wedding, but Justin and I were celebrating our 7 year anniversary the very next day! Maria + Alvin's wedding was a perfect excuse to get away to one of our favorite cities, be a part of a wedding, and remember how important marriage is!

Wow wow wow you guys laid down the hammer on SF! What a stylish couple and wedding and photographers to match. These images are seriously sicker than swine flu! Something about the groomsmen shot in the alley is so badass! Also the dance shot on the left above the cookies is my fave! That thing belongs on a wall for sure!
