He is her rock. He has a commanding presence, matched with the kindest eyes. She’s the spontaneous, rambunctious, playful one. They knew within four months of dating that they wanted to get married, but their families insisted they were too young, and so they’ve put it off for six years, keeping their relationship going across the oceans, spanning the US, Japan, Philippines, England, now Germany, and soon Afghanistan.
Aaron is in the Army, stationed in Germany now, but deploying deployed to Afghanistan in a couple months. He and Audrey have plans for a full wedding when he gets back from his tour in Afghanistan, but really, they knew that this was the time. Aaron flew back to California from Germany for just three days, with one goal in mind: marry his girl. And with that, they eloped in San Francisco.
We met in front of the iconic Grace Cathedral on a gray day. It was overcast and chilly– the kind of weather that often envelops San Francisco but shocks tourists dreaming of Southern California sunshine and beaches. These two were unfazed by the cold, especially Audrey in her stunning vintage lace dress and those gorgeous peep-toe pumps.
Starting off strong in the middle of those beautiful steps.

Already said it once, but I love her shoes. And Aaron’s are shiny enough to see yourself in them.
There are no words.
Love this! There was a meeting going on in the room right next to where they’re standing. But they went ahead and pulled this off anyway.
Love the natural vignetting of this one.
Congratulations to you both! I wish you only the best in the year to come.
