They tied the knot on Christmas Eve, in the early morning hours. We created this portrait before sunrise to capture their special moment in front of the majestically lit tree by the MacLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park. How unique! We also designed a beautiful album and a metal wall art gallery for both of them with these beautiful portraits. Thank you for letting me portray your big day! ❤️

The cute Christmas "love train" was very appropriate for their story - shown in the page below that we created for their elopement album!!

After these intimate sunrise portraits we went to Sutro Heights for their unique ceremony with an amazing view of Ocean Beach and the vast horizon full of the magic the future was holding for both of them.

Chikara is known in our community as an amazing athlete! Many people wonder about his dietary approach to performing so well. His secret? Donuts! Diann is an amazing culinary artist and loves to bake all kinds of wonderful treats for her clients! What would be better for them than to exchange donut rings instead of their jewelry counterparts. This made for a really joyful and funny ceremony - truly something I had never photographed before!! The wedding album page below shows some of the fun and memories!!

After the ceremony we took some more time to create beautiful wedding portraits of the two in Sutro park, most importantly, incorporating their personal touch to the day: running shoes, donuts, and a lot of love.

Given Diann's wonderful baking skills combined with the unique wedding day creativity, the wedding cake was just as fun as the rest of the day.

We also designed a wedding album and a metal wall art gallery for both of them with these beautiful portraits. The wall art collection is shown in the image below.

Wedding Photography By EyecatchlightYour wedding day is among the most important days of your life. We truly strive to create the memories you deserve for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

We love to portray intimate, small elopements just as much as we enjoy creating the memories for your big festivity among all your important guests, be it friends and loved ones. Truth is, no matter the size of your special day, the photographic memories you keep for years to come are among the most important!

Our packages are flexible to fit both of these, small or large! We use hourly rates so that you can tailor your memories to fit your unique day. You purchase the custom artwork you own once you see your personal portraits of your special day, and once the stress of organizing is in the past.

We guide you through every step of the way during your season of romance, with a consultation to help design your goals, a stunning wedding day, and beautifully artistic wedding albums, folio boxes, and wall art to own for generations to come. Your bond of love deserves the honor of being displayed instead of living inside a drawer on a USB device.
