Tiki Themed DIY Wedding [Eva + Ryan] // Oakland Wedding Photographer

Eva and Ryan are two of the loveliest people I got to photograph here in San Francisco Bay Area. I am so happy they chose me as their photographer to do both their engagement session and wedding photography. These two were so lovely to work with. And hip. (Is this still a thing? I’m getting old here.) But really, they were amazing from their Santa Cruz coffee shop engagement session to their DIY wedding in Piedmont.

These two had DIY wedding with conscious choices. Eva and Ryan decided very early on that if they were going to plan a wedding, they were going to do it on their own terms, making no compromises in who they are and what they believe in. They chose to basically build their wedding from the ground up, hand-picking every single vendor and detail. These two believed in supporting: women, local businesses, and being environment friendly.

These two got married at Piedmont Community Hall which is such a lovely place surrounded by redwoods. Also can we talk about how cute every single details that were touched by them? The seat chart they made for the wedding was absolutely the cutest.

They both got little emotional on their first look and during their ceremony and I am so happy that I was to capture these precious moments of their special day. The vegan donuts they had was so bomb. 100% would photograph these two for the donuts! ;)

Oh, and these two decided to change their last name to something completely different from their formal names and it
