Lori & Todd: Presidio Wedding Photography in San Francisco

There aren’t many places without palm trees where you can have a warm wedding in December. But as Lori, Todd and I were walking back from a sunset photo session above the Pacific Ocean, we couldn’t help but marvel at how great it felt to be outdoors.

Lori and Todd’s San Francisco wedding had the best of both kinds of Winter. Leaving the warm, windless bluffs, we headed to the Presidio’s Log Cabin for the reception. The entire place was decked out in holiday decorations. Frosty centerpieces, glowing Christmas trees and a warm fireplace made it hard to believe it wasn’t cold and snowy outside.

After shooting Lori and Todd’s San Francisco engagement photos, I knew their wedding would be a highlight of the Holiday Season. With a large wedding party of close friends, a Triumph “Just Married Getaway Car”, and an incredible sunset by the Bay, it surely was.

Lori and Todd, a big ‘Congratulations’ to you both!
