I arrived at this photo shoot disheveled and confused – literally threw my face on in 15 minutes the morning of and ran my ass down to Grace Cathedral. Although I’m usually quite good about sticking to my commitments, this was just one of those off (slash hungover) days, yanno?

So it is a legit miracle that Ms. Jen Christo managed to make me look as put together as I do in these pictures. God bless this woman (who besides being seriously talented behind the lens also has bad-ass style herself – y'all can follow her at her Instagram here).

As for the venue, I’ve always wanted to shoot at Grace Cathedral. It’s one of my favorite places in all of San Francisco: so peaceful, yet majestic and imposing (like all religious institutions I suppose, but this one preaches inclusive Christianity and also has free yoga classes on Tuesday, so forgive me if I’m biased). Even atheists like me can’t help feeling small and reverential when you’re standing in the square. 

Hope everyone had a happy 4th – photos from my weekend at a farm in Sonoma to come soon.
