Jessica asked Matthew if he wanted any getting-ready shots and yes, of course he did, so he grabbed some whiskey and came out in his underwear. It was the second time Jessica had met Matthew. I giggled.
We got dressed and took some shots in front of our knot calendar.
Portrait before we head out.
Starting the 1 mile walk to the wedding room at the Oakland Auditor-Controller Clerk-Recorder's Office! Sounds romantic, huh?
We walked around Lake Merritt and Jessica joined us briefly so she could get this shot. For a mile it was just me and him and the lake and the birds and the sun.
This couple was also getting married. We loved them. And are really glad that I am not 8 months pregnant.
