Yesterday I shared thoughts and photos from my friend Kerry’s wedding welcome party last weekend in San Francisco. I was so grateful that she and Josh invited me to their wedding and asked me to photograph an important part of their weekend. As an added bonus to their celebration, I had a few days to myself and with some close friends in the city. Traveling alone meant I got to explore as I pleased, and with my camera in hand, I walked the streets of San Francisco with no jacket on, occasional sun on my face, and a constant smile on there as well. I have long dreamed of going somewhere with complete freedom to explore and photograph and I fell in love with San Fran from behind my lens. Here are favorites of my adventures and a city that stole my heart.
