The Pier of San Francisco and the Golden Gate were the places chosen by Rocio and Mike for this session. In fact, Mike says that The Port is more iconic than The Golden Gate. I had the oportunnity to phisically meet then on this visit, and the appointment was at the Water Front Restaurant very close to Ferry Building.
I think the most important thing was, aside from the photos, the opportunity to meet them as well as the story that has kept them in love together for ten years.
Rocio is a very happy women from Chihuahua, and Mike is a Stanford University graduate doctor. This couple is together by fate and we’re close to document their wedding in San Miguel de Allende
Hope you enjoy these images !…
The Port of San Francisco is a semi-independent organization run by a five-member commission, appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Supervisors. The Port is responsible for managing the larger waterfront area that extends from the anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge, along the Marina district, all the way around the north and east shores of the city of San Francisco including Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero, and southward to the city line just beyond Candlestick Point. In 1968, the State of California via the California State Lands Commission for the State operated San Francisco Port Authority (est. 1957) transferred its responsibilities for the Harbor of San Francisco waterfront to the City and County of San Francisco / San Francisco Harbor Commission through the Burton Act AB2649. All eligible State port authority employees had the option to become employees of the City and County of San Francisco to maintain consistent operation of the Port of San Francisco.
