This Bay Area photographer creates photo magic with fine art skills & moment-making wizardry

I see a lot of amazing wedding photography that tugs at my heartstrings and makes me belly laugh from great shots. But once in a great while we get to see a portfolio of wedding moments captured by someone who really knows visual art and makes it obvious that they take great care in capturing a wedding day with that eye for detail and magic. That's what I felt when I saw what Ella Sophia was creating for her couples…

A romantic O'ahu wedding with two grooms, a beachside ceremony, & jumping the "groomstick"

A beachside ceremony, ceremonial leis adorning killer fashion, and two grooms ready to make it official on the southern shore of the island of O'ahu. This is a wedding to savor. White, blue, and silver roses adorned the island venue that was made even more magical with perfect island weather. Devon and Ricky had romantic and funny vows that were set to a song rhyme. Finishing the ceremony with the jumping over the "groomstick" capped it all off with a little tradition. Don your beach hat and sunnies and bask in the bright day and even brighter love of these two grooms and their Hawaii wedding…

Crowns, pink flowers, & the cosmos at this Space Center wedding

Jay and Rick described their Chabot Space Center wedding style as modern, edgy, and glam and I couldn't love it more. Jay wanted to include a few nontraditional elements to capture who they are like her flower ring instead of a bouquet and a bad-ass crown made by her friend. The ceremony was also very customized and included the Quaker tradition of sitting in silence and waiting to be moved to speak. Don't miss AMAZING fashion (featuring epic ink), ceremony space to die for, and pops of pinks and reds that make everything have warm vibes…
