The Wedding of Drew and Jennifer

This was the last wedding for me of 2016 but it was also one of my favorites.  I really do enjoy this venue its got views and a really solid staff.  Drew and Jennifer they are cuter then two peas in a pod.  I love Jennifer’s laugh and smile it is intoxicating.  She smiles and laughs with passion right down from her soul and its great.  Drew is on the mello side but so funny in his somewhat serious way.  Anyway these two I was thrilled to have been their photographer.  Thank you, you two!!

The Wedding of Alejandro and Cassie

This wedding was held at the lovely La Grande in Oakley CA.  Such great people who run this location highly recommend it anyone who is in the process of looking for a venue.  What can I say about these two only that they are beautiful and beautiful when they are together.  It was a pleasure photographing their wedding and I wish them the best in their future.

 

The Wedding of Alex and Angelina

Angelina and Alex were a joy to work with.  They didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen which is such a different experience for me but one I quit enjoyed.  We concentrated primarily on them as a couple and family which is the most important thing.  Angelina is such an elegant beautiful young woman and the way Alex looks at her its amazing.  He is such an awesome person.  The last photo is an image of me with the groom and other vendors that Alex wanted to make a toast I don’t ever drink at anyone’s wedding accept maybe a diet coke.  So it was hard for me to take a shot but I did it and you can see my hand in the shot.  Please enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Jose and Elsa

This couple are truly sweet.  They are definitely meant for each other you can tell the love and admiration they have for one another not only in their engagement session that I took but in their wedding day.  It was a remarkably warm and beautiful sunny day in October.  They had their wedding in the gorgeous catholic church Immaculate Heart of Mary in Brentwood CA and then off to the reception at The Black Hawk Country Club,  gorgeous views as the back drop from their venue.  It was an upbeat and fun wedding with great food, laughter and music.

 

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.

The Wedding of Angelo and Kaylee

Besides these two being adorable, I can’t say how goregous this wedding was.  I love the fact that Angelo and Kaylee’s wedding was held at Angelo’s parents house which is a beautiful property in itself.  They couldn’t have asked for a better location.  If it was just the location and nothing else that would have been just beautiful but then Kaylee had it decorated immaculately.  I loved all the little details she had and this wedding did not lack that whatsoever.  The rustic elements just matched perfectly with the location of the wedding it was stunning.  I loved the simple elegance of Kaylee’s dress it felt like a gorgeous updated 1930’s style dress and the the flowers complimented that style.  Anyway it was an amazing wedding thank you for allowing me to be part of it.

The wedding of Travis and Amanda

The wedding of Amanda and Travis was at the beautiful Murrieta’s Well one of my favorite venues.  This bride took great time for the details at her wedding.  The venue looked beautiful with all her special attention to details.  She had her ceremony out in the grove with vineyards in her background.  It was a beautiful day I was happy that they shared their day with me.  Please enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Stephen and Ashley

These two are so cute.  I enjoyed their wedding so much at the Jefferson St. Mansion.  They had a Disney type theme to their wedding but it wasn’t overly done it was in a very delicate and very clean way.  They even had hidden Mickey type things at their wedding like her earings, his cufflinks, the flowers at the alter shapped in Mickey ears but you can’t really notice it until really looking at it.  So cute in a grown up way.  I just love how these two look at each other its overwhelmingly beautiful.  Enjoy their photos!
