Bringing your love story to light
Elegant Wedding Photographer in San Francisco
Hello and welcome! I’m thrilled you’ve stopped by. Meeting you and hearing your story is one of my favorite parts about being a wedding photographer. As a boutique wedding studio I value every couple I meet and work with and I strive to create unique, personal, and elegant wedding photographs that capture authentic moments and the special magic of my clients’ wedding days… while offering the very highest level of customer service. Every wedding is sacred, and I bring that story to light through memorable candids, breathtaking, story-telling portraits, and spectacular detail shots.
I’m Grier Cooper, a San Francisco wedding photographer and former professional ballet dancer. I feel very lucky to call the San Francisco Bay Area my home; it’s a place filled with countless beautiful locations; perfect settings for engagement portraits, wedding ceremonies, and wedding receptions. Although I’ve lived in the Bay Area for more than twenty years, I’m continually finding new awe-inspiring natural wonders: gorgeous waterfalls, majestic redwood groves, secluded beaches. I’m happy to travel and discover new places whether I photograph weddings near home, or in places like Napa, Sacramento and beyond.
