The Wedding of Clint and Nicole

The wedding was held at the beautiful Casa Real in Pleasanton CA.  Ceremony and reception same location.  It was a winter wedding in January of this year.  Funny thing it had been sunny for quit some time but then the weather decided to drizzle on and off again but either way the light was really nice.  Nicole looked stunning in casing her hour glass figure so beautifully.  I meet Clint for the first time on their wedding day what a nice young man.  He was very graceful and kind. Reception was so lively and exciting.  It awesome to see people just let loose.  I wish these two the very best and thank them for having me shoot their wedding day.  Please enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Michael and Amanda

It was a great pleasure to have photographed Michael and Amanda’s wedding at La Grande in Oakley.  She was my first bride that I had Skype with.  I know it sounds funny but I have never really used Skype before but I figured it out and I was so proud of myself.  Amanda at the time lived in Eureka and it was so much easier to communicate that way.  It was a lovely fall wedding with the leaves turning gold in color and it wasn’t cold or hot on her wedding day.  I loved how Amanda looked at Michael so cute and sweet on him the whole day.  I wish them the very best in their future together.

 

 

                   

The Quincenera of Yvanna

Her 15th birthday was held in Hercules CA. I had the great pleasure photography this young lady. She had a surprise when she did her special dance when Mickey Mouse came to swift her off her feet. She is a great fan of Mickey Mouse so this meant a lot to her. Enjoy the photos!

Engagement Session of Gabrielle and Dan pt.1

Gabrielle is a Veterinarian and her love of animals just touches me deeply.  I adore animals myself so it was fun to have Gabbie and Dan’s little guy with us.  I love his pictures with them.  We photographed them in this very special location in Napa it somewhere they come to frequently so its special to the couple and I totally enjoyed shooting there.  The lighting was so beautiful on them and they glow so nicely.  Stay tunned to their second photo shoot and then their wedding images.

Jon and Krupa 1

I had the pleasure of photographing this mini Indian wedding of Jon and Krupa.  It was held in San Francisco and a gorgeous Indian wedding ceremony for Krupa’s family.  I thought it looked magnificent with all those adoring colors and fancy fabrics which is not what you normally see in a typical western wedding.  It was great to be apart of something so cultural I absolutely loved it.  I also had the pleasure of photographing their more traditional wedding but you will get to see that next week.
