The vast bonds of nature and humanity... | San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photography

On of my recent projects involved a very special wedding project. We took beautiful portraits of Brittany, our lovely bride, on majestic Ocean Beach in San Francisco. This was a special place - a place where the wild waves mingled with her hair, and where the wind blew her dreams all the way to her from out on the horizon. And while we thought we were only the team of stylists and photographers, our dreams were drawn and blown across the sky along with hers, in an amazingly stunning red tinted scene of Californian sunset.

What speaks to me most about photography is the theme of love - in the form of a vast and powerful connection with our surroundings. This connection either appears in a bond with other people or with the vast extent of nature to which my subjects are linked in invisible, yet strongly visual ways. Inevitably, each time I am also connected and drawn in - and this is precisely why my passion for this amazing form of art will never die.

The theme of love appeared in this astoundingly special session through the simple fact that Brittany was a bride and connected to her future and current family in such beautiful ways! But much more importantly, I felt a very powerful bond throughout our large team of stylists, make-up artists, photographers, videographers, florists, and more, a connection that slowly but steadily grew as the afternoon went on towards its grand finale of a majestic sunset. We, on that day on the beach, worked together as a community and with love and personal passion - to make Brittany look fantastic, and to capture her special moments in the very best way! See for yourself what a beautiful setting our stylists were able to create!

Once the sun started to set we were ready to catch Brittany's beauty and the hard work of her make-up artist and stylist on camera. She was beautifully styled in her wedding dress and with vintage flowers in her hair. The breeze blew strongly and reminded me of a beautiful wind of change and future direction that Brittany was embarking on. I particularly fell in love with her majestic large bouquet of flowers. As the sun set, Brittany seemed to gaze far, far away, into a land of dreams whose focus lay in the depths of the horizon of the vast ocean. Not without taking us along with her on her mindful journey into a future of love.

The second theme that really spoke to me in this project was the one of nature. I believe this theme can't be emphasized more strongly than in majestic locations like wide open Ocean Beach. As the sun set and the breeze cooled our faces, we were completely immersed in the scene, and Brittany slowly moved from being the main subject in our photos to be a part of the incredible landscape. This is one of my passionate elements in photography - the marriage of nature with humanity, as it was possible in the portraits below.

Even after such a long time, as a photographer I still learn new things about life from each session. This particular one taught me about the vast immersion of all of us as a community in nature. It seemed to me that we all had our own world of dreams that came true that day on the beach. As time went on, we connected more and more with each other and with the vast beach and the sunset. Each of us for one another and nature for each of us made a dream come true - the realization that life was a wonderful sequence of moments and of connection within a community and within a planet of beauty.
