San Francisco wedding photographer Mike Danen

Cool people here. You might remember Ken & Ly from their gorgeous wedding at Hong Kong East Ocean last Summer- thanks so much guys for having me! With such nice people, it’s always a pleasure to get to get together and do another session after the wedding day is over. Ken & Ly chose Golden Gate Park, and the beautiful Japanese Tea Garden, and once again they rocked it! Great job guys, we got some cool images!

Happy Holidays!!!

Love was everywhere! What a beautiful couple, and gorgeous wedding! You might remember Omar & Julie from their fab engagement session a few months ago- we had a blast- literally, we got sand blasted down on Pfeiffer State Beach in Big Sur! Their spectacular wedding day was held at the beautiful new InterContinental The Clement Monterey. Shout out to Donal Daly and all the staff, it is always a pleasure to work with such professionals! Everything came together to perfection, from the stunningly beautiful and tasty cake by Marina Sousa of Just Cake, to Julie’s sister Megan McDonnell’s creative and original table decorations- you guys really outdid yourselves! Marty Satow of Good Vibrations rocked the reception, and fun was had by all!

Thanks so much for having me guys, it has been truly a pleasure working with you and your families. Enjoy the pictures friends, and your comments are always appreciated! Have a great weekend!
