Gavin Farrington photographs weddings throughout San Francisco and all over the world. From Northern California affairs covering Napa, Carmel, and Tahoe, to destination weddings in Mexico, India, Japan, Hawaii, New York, Southern California, Colorado and Canada, Gavin captures the love, laughter, and emotional connections that tie families and friends together.

Gavin’s work breaks the traditional mold of wedding photography by remaining as hands-off as possible, and by always striving for the bare minimum impact on how your event unfolds. Gavin embraces the lack of control that comes with wedding photo-journalism, and concentrates on being a family historian rather than a creator/director of fabricated “moments.”

This philosophy allows shy couples to enjoy their celebration without feeling like they’re on stage, and confident couples to relax and participate in their wedding without the constant disruptive demands of traditional wedding photography. The end result is a beautiful retelling of what actually happened. Learn More

On our wedding day, Gavin’s presence was priceless. He was there when you needed him to be, but disappeared effortlessly into distance when you were having your moments.
