Teresa O'Brien Photography bio picture
  • Hello + Welcome!

    I call hilly San Francisco home with my husband and wild child. I like wild, so I'd have it no other way. When I am not with my boys, I love to be out capturing life - people - in a fun and real way. It is work, but I get to laugh, play, cheer, and get excited … a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit my journal! Please make sure to leave a comment because I'd love to hear from you. It definitely makes my day.

    Hope we connect some day soon!

Desert Heat Wedding

Although I love hot weather and spent my childhood in Miami, I’ve gotten spoiled by my temperate San Francisco weather.  It became very evident after spending a day in the sizzling desert heat for this full day photoshoot.  I mean I felt like bacon frying out there in the super reflective hot sand.  Even if I placed the models with the sun behind them, they would squint by the intensity of this reflective light.  But no matter, it was worth it.  It tested my technical abilities while working at high noon in super intense light with little shade – a situation many fear and run away from.

This destination wedding session took place at the Nelson Nevada Ghost Town in El Dorado Canyon.  And these two were rocking it!

Many thanks to the creative team for making this event possible!
