Pinole & Sausalito Wedding | Patricia & Neil

Neil's family has been dear family friends for years, ever since they moved to California from South Africa. Over the years they've been so supportive of my photography, even featuring a picture I had taken of my puppy on the recall cards for a daughter's EyeCare Optometry business! Now that's true friendship! :-D

I met Patricia two years ago when she and Neil were first dating, having moved to California from Austria. In that time she's become the calm to his whirlwind, and the supportive steady to his flurry as he runs around helping people. Both truly caring for their friends and family around them and both so excited to start this new life together!

Patricia and Neil, it was a joy to celebrate the day with you as your photographer! By experiencing all the little details and moments behind the scenes, I felt every bit a part of my Moonsamy family! Enjoy the sunshine and blue waters of Hawaii!

Patricia and Neil got ready at a family home overlooking the bay. The empty house provided a clean, airy backdrop for Patricia's beautiful Mori Lee dress!

Oh yes, this is definitely an Apple family!

A sweet family moment of mother and sister lacing up her dress and father seeing her for the first time!

Because their reception was a distance away from the ceremony and desiring a stress-free day spent together, Patricia and Neil chose to do a First Look!

There was a lot of "Wow!!" going on!

One thing I love about Neil's family is their love to laugh. So it's no surprise the ceremony was filled with family, close friends, and lots and lots of laughter!

Driving to the other side of the bay, to the cute town of Sausalito, we started off on the dock by the pretty blue water.


From a street poet to tourists with their cameras, everyone was excited to congratulate the couple! Neil videoed the experience with his iPhone, of course!

A favorite!

The reception at The Spinnaker had gorgeous views of the bay!

With typical Bay Area mist rolling over the hills. So pretty!

With the city lights twinkling in the distance, Patricia and Neil spent the night dancing and celebrating, surrounded by their friends and family!
