Calling all chocolate lovers—this wedding editorial is for YOU! I was lucky enough to be asked by Amy from Hitch Perfect to photograph this gorgeous shoot she put together at the Westin St. Francis San Francisco (one of my favorite venues!). Every piece, from the venue to the Ruby Chocolate cake by Love Natty Cakes was, uniquely put together by Amy to create this edgy, romantic shoot. Thank you, Amy, for inviting me to be part of such a beautiful and unique editorial!

Some of my favorite flat lay photos to date! I had so much fun styling all of these different elements. The different chocolates (which were delicious by the way…Amy let me take them home!), unique floral elements, acrylic invitations made these flat lays different than most which was a fun creative challenge!
Talk about venue view goals! The Westin St. Francis San Francisco is absolutely stunning inside (yay for white walls!), and the view just makes it that much cooler!
I love that more and more brides are opting for more non-traditional looks like this jumpsuit! I had a bride recently who wore a two piece—obsessed! And another stunning feature of Westin St. Francis San Francisco — these gorgeous floor to ceiling windows!
These florals…they are just so stunning! I love how Katharina Stuart paired the brown and pinks perfectly.
The windows in this space give great ambient light! This is a beautiful spot for wedding portraits if you time it right with your photographer.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos from this styled shoot as much as I enjoyed photographing it!
