Weddings Magazine Raleigh :: Cover Feature

We came upon a happy surprise last week. One of our images was recently featured on the cover of Weddings Magazine, a publication distributed throughout the Research Triangle region of North Carolina! The original image was shot here in San Francisco at RF-80 (now SF80) for the bay area's top-notch magazine, Today's Bride San Francisco. Today's Bride commissioned the photo shoot back in 2009 and our magazine cover ran in the fall of that year. See it here with full photo credits. Without further adieu, here is the cover of Weddings Magazine featuring Arrowood Photography.

San Francisco's The Old Mint :: Valeria & Kirill's Wedding

I was so excited to be a part of Valeria and Kirill's wedding from the word Go. For starters, I met them through my fabulous friends and awesome couple, Irina and Len, who you may remember from my blog posts featuring their engagement session and wedding. And secondly, Valeria and Kirill were getting married at The Mint, San Francisco and I've never shot there before! This venue happens to be a National Historic Landmark and will soon become the San Francisco Museum at The Mint. But in the meantime, you can rent it for special events and soak up the history, architecture and industrial elements of the space. I loved shooting there--the light fixtures, the vault, the abandoned machinery, the brick walls…..so much fun and totally my beat. 

So thank you Valeria and Kirill for allowing me to photograph your wedding and gain access to this really cool venue!

Today's Bride Magazine :: Editorial - Gothic Rose

Late last year, I once again had the privilege of shooting an editorial spread for the San Francisco based magazine Today's Bride. The Gothic Rose feature can be seen in the magazine thoughout the winter, spring, summer and fall editions of 2013. The concept and styling was all about how to infuse a typically dark, gothic design into refined, sophisticated wedding and event decor. The results are in! Check out the inspired work of Asiel Design at the Berkeley City Club and see if they've convinced you that going gothic can be beautiful.

South Asian Bride Magazine :: Editorial - Glitzy Glam

Two weeks ago I received an email from Madiha Khan of Exquisite Events telling me that one of our styled shoots was being featured in South Asian Bride Magazine. Very happy news! One of the greatest reasons I always share images from a shoot with the vendors who work very hard on styling and designing is so they can in turn submit images for publication which will inspire future brides. So thank you to all the vendors who made this shoot so glitzy and so glam that the editors of SAB decided to publish the images. This blog entry is dedicated to you!

Archana & Adrian :: A Fusion Wedding at San Francisco City Hall

Archana and Adrian's wedding was a melting pot of culture. Adrian's family is from Argentina and are Jewish and Archana's family is from India and are Hindu. The wedding celebration was a cleverly combined fusion ceremony- half Jewish and half Hindu. You'll see a mix of cultures and different elements from each, along with some non-traditional/modern elements in the images selected below. Mazel Tov!
