San Francisco wedding photographer / Daragh & Sal

Sal and Daragh remind me quite a bit of Aimee and Mike when they decided I was going to be their San Francisco wedding photographer. I photographed Aimee & Mike back in March at Plumpjack in Squaw. When I met with Daragh and Sal, Daragh had the same expression as Aimee did with I met with Aimee. Daragh KNEW. She loved how I photographed, the moments of my documentary style photography, the expressions between my brides and grooms, how I emotionally connect to my couples and live vicariously through them. Daragh had a crush on Sal for years…off and on. Sal fronts the KTVU Channel 2 News Live Drive Time Traffic center weekdays and is a general assignment news reporter for the 5 and 6 PM news in San Francisco. Many of my friends said to me when I would describe Sal, “oh yeah! The traffic guy!” I always was fascinated with the TV newscasters when I worked in newspapers. I would see them all the time at spot news (car crashes, fires, murders etc). At Sal and Daragh’s wedding, many of their guests work in TV in San Francisco, and I don’t know if it’s a blessing or not that I don’t watch a whole lot of TV and never when I’m in San Francisco. So much for being tongue tied. Daragh and Sal met with the help of their friend Jennifer Pierce Kirouac.  Daragh and Sal had seen each other at a Giants game in passing.  Daragh knew Jennifer was Sal’s co-worker at KTVU and asked her to introduce them.  Jennifer happily obliged and connected them though e-mail. After corresponding for a bit they lost touch for several years. As fate would have it, Daragh and Sal became “friends” through a social networking site in 2006.  Later,  when they both became single, Daragh and Sal decided to meet to catch a Giants game…. Sal and Daragh got ready at the gorgeous Fairmont hotel in the Nob Hill district of San Francisco. They were married at the amazing St. Dominic’s and their reception was held at the historic University Club in Nob Hill. Their day of coordinator was Marie Cooper of Boutique Events . I absolutely adore Sal and Daragh and hopefully soon I’ll have the opportunity of photographing them again soon! Thank you so much Sal and Daragh for being so fun to photograph!
