Amber Gregory Photography bio picture
  • Hello there,

    My name is Amber. I'm a wedding, portrait and event photographer currently living in San Francisco, California with my husband Scott and two tuxedo cats. I LOVE taking photos, which should be obvious, and have been doing so in the bay area for nearly fifteen years.

    I am creative, energetic, and find great joy in my work. I break the ice at engagement shoots by letting my famous mouth run and seeing what comes out -- don't worry, some of it manages to be funny! I would love to get to know you better and take your photo. I'm naturally inquisitive and versatile, and love photographing everything from traditional/ethnic wedding ceremonies to the weirdest of San Francisco underground performance art, to couples portraits and burlesque head shots. What I'm saying is I'm up for anything -- try me!

Kitty Von Quim | Clarion Alley | San Francisco

This past weekend I got to spend an enjoyable few hours with this gorgeous woman,  a burlesque performer who goes by the stage name Kitty Von Quim, in one of the most fun location spots in San Francisco — the creative, always-changing, beautiful, vivid Clarion Alley Mural Project. Patterns & colors collided to make magic, and this was such a fun, easy shoot.

Here are the final images that Ms. Von Quim chose for her promotional package!

 

Jordan & Fred’s Wedding | Point Montara Lighthouse

This is Jordan & Fred:

Jordan & Fred are such amazing people who truly, truly love each other. Along with their 4-month-old son, they have the cutest family, a beautiful house & wonderful people around them. This was a small wedding of close family and friends, and though the fog at the Point Montara Lighthouse created great ambiance early in the day, it burned off right before the ceremony started to reveal not just the Pacific Ocean below, but a crystal clear, unbelievably blue sky.

I think we can all agree: this bodes well for their future together!

It was such an honor to get to spend the day celebrating with Jordan and Fred, and hopefully this snapshot of their wedding day will convey the intense joyful emotion that ran through it. Congratulations again to both of you!

A B & The Sea | San Francisco | May 31st 2011

Over the last year and a half, I’ve photographed SF’s A B & The Sea live in concert so many times I’ve lost count (but the number is at least 11!).  As I got to know this talented, kind and generally awesome group of guys better, it became a goal of mine to shoot promotional photos for them at some point. It took a year and a half, but on Memorial Day I got the call, and for nearly three hours we roamed San Francisco’s Embarcadero, from the Ferry Building halfway up to Pier 32.

I must say, and I don’t say this lightly, that this is the most fun I’ve ever had on a shoot— in so many ways. Taking pictures was easy, as the guys have a natural affinity for the camera and never lacked enthusiasm for the shoot (I find this exceedingly rare!). A band that is as stoked to have their photo taken as I am to take it? I hadn’t realized how rare that was until I felt the breezy, laid back nature of this shoot. It also helps that these troublemakers also had me laughing so hard that my abs and face were sore when I got home!  It was just one of those days where everything goes right.

The following two photos are the only two to be released so far. Both were taken near the end of the shoot, after we’d lost our sunshine (ironic, considering that the single they’re using these photos to promote is called “In The Sunshine”).  Hopefully there will be more releases from this shoot to come—but for now, enjoy these!

Toolbox at Club 93 | San Francisco, CA | June 9th, 2011

My Thursday gig shooting photos at the best variety show ever truly is a dream. I find inspiration everywhere here. It is wonderful, and the people have opened up new pieces of my heart and soul over the last five months I’ve been going. I love how life is so unpredictable, yet we always seem to get what we need, right when we need it.

Here are a few shots from this past Thursday’s show:
