Engagement Session of Amanda and Michael

I meet these two lovely people at a local bridal fair and from a distance I feel in love with Amanda’s eyes. I think we connected well and I had a great time photographing their engagement session. They brought their beautiful dog Athenna shes such a little joy. We photographed their session at the Beautiful Tea Gardens in Lodi California. I used both natural light and artificial light to enhance. I am excited to be photographing their wedding in August so stay tunned!!

The Engagement Session of Leslie and Mark

These two are certainly in love. They are really perfect for one another. Leslie was a total sport when we photographed them at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco that location seems to always be windy its a rarity for it not to be. Her colar on her dress kept hitting her but she managed well. I believe that Mark purposed to her here its a really special place for them. Stay tunned for the wedding photos!

The Engagment/Family Session of Irene and Michael

When I first met Irene and Michael it felt very comfortable like long time friends. I really enjoyed speaking with them and I got a sense that they are humorous and like to have fun and laugh and I really enjoy that. So when we did their engagement photos we had to bring that side of them out and which we did. I didn’t want to overly pose them I just placed and they did their thing which I couldn’t ask anything better. I loved that they brought their props things that made them unique. Stay tuned

Engagement Session of Nicole and Gerald

These two are young and adorable. They fit each other so well I love there enthusiasm and there youth. We shot at Lover’s Lane in San Francisco and the Presido and Palace of Fine Arts. This city of San Francisco amazes me each time I shoot there. Always great locations and Lovers Lane was a new place for me and I found it to be gorgeous but it is a big location. Anyway we had a fun time and I loved how they loved each other all the way through. Please stay tunned for their wedding pictures!

The Engagement Session of Carla and Andy

This was a fun shoot with these two. It was such a windy day in San Francisco poor Carla had to fight the wind but wow what a trooper she was. We started at the Japanese Gardens in San Francisco and then went off to Lands end and ended the day at Baker beach. They showed their support for their teams both base ball and foot ball. I loved that they were supper playful showing that in their session makes it fun and light harded. Stay tuned to their wedding pictures!

Taylor and Taylor Engagement Session

I photographed these lovely people a couple of months back just before their wedding day.  We went to Round Valley to do their session and its a wonderful park with a rustic feel.  It felt very country like but romantic at the same time.  I found it fun to call both of them by the same name.  For now enjoy the romantic light and beauty of these two people stay tuned for the wedding photos!



The Engagement Session of Alexa and Bryan

The engagement session was taken at Beringer in Napa.  They are great customers of their’s and beside all that this place is stunning.  It took us awhile to set up a session because of the rain we had this year.  It was a blessing to have the rain but it postponed our session a few times so we finally decided come rain or shine we are going to go ahead and just shoot in the rain.  Well, it total paid off.  It did rain a little bit during the session and lucky we did some cool umbrella shots but then it cleared up for the remaing time.  We got lucky.  Stay tuned for their wedding pics!!

E-Session of Emily and Adrian

We shot this engagement session at Santa Clara University its always so lovely there.  The architecture is beautiful but its also very well manicured.  Emily is a jewlery designer and she designed her own engagement ring which is a diamond it looked very rustic, and Adrian works for IKEA I love that place.  The two of them are having their wedding in a different state I believe Emily said Philadelphia very cool!  Enjoy the photos.
