I keep seeing some amazing work being shot by other photographers at weddings with the Fuji X-pro1 (and other cameras in that family), and I’ve begun to use mine for detail and ‘getting ready’ photos. While I rely on DSLR’s for most of the coverage, I’m finding the low profile and quiet shutter is far less intimidating as people are relaxing before the big event.
As other people have noted, the JPG processing right out of the camera is beautiful, with a very film-like quality too it. Thank you, Fuji!

24 hours later and this still feels overwhelming. It’s almost hard to believe that this long road is over, that DOMA is put to rest and Prop 8 is officially part of California history. The celebration last night in San Francisco was epic, of course. Most touching to me were the families with children who showed up, as well as the older GLBT people. I’m in my mid-thirties and this is a tremendous victory, but I cannot imagine what it would have been like to been unable to marry my partner for most of our adult lives.
The ACLU has released a pdf of useful information for same-sex couples in California interested in being married, it’s right here.
Can you imagine a world where these two adorable people can’t marry? Me neither.
And yup, that person popped the question to their partner at 18th and Castro st.
A resounding ‘yes’!
More photos below the cut. Congrats to all the newly engaged couples, to the already committed couples who can now benefit from legal protections, to our GLBT soldiers who now have marriage benefits, and to couples separated by geography who can now be together in the United States. We did it, everyone. Love triumphs.
Amy and Jason took DIY to a new level with their 1920′s Carnival theme Livermore wedding.
These two crazy kids hand-made their decorations, invitations, and save-the-dates; Amy’s mom arranged all the flowers; Amy made several kinds of pickles for the drink and snack table; and Jason spent the months leading up to their wedding day brewing several kinds of beer – each of them unique and delicious. I especially liked the watermelon lager.
Food was provided by a food truck, there were carnival rides, games, and a band. The wedding took place at the Ravenswood Historical site in Livermore on a warm summers day and everyone had a terrific time lounging under the trees, sipping cold brew, and celebrating the love between these two creative people.
