The Wedding of Alex and April

From the initial consultation meeting I felt connected with these two right away.  We laughed and cried together.  During their engagement session they were really amazing people an incident happened with my car but they stood by me when I think some wouldn’t and for that I was very thankful.  Their wedding was beautiful Alex wore his military uniform for the ceremony and then changed into a normal suit for the reception its very cool to see that.  April was calm cool and collected on her day when there are things happening all at one time.  I had a great time and I thank them for choosing me as their photographer.

Marissa and Vk’s Engagement Session

I think this couple is absolutely adorable.  We shot at the Sunol park a wonderful location for beautiful romantic light.  This two are so sweet the way they talk to each other the way the smile at each other and look at each other I swoon over them.  Please enjoy the photos!

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

Family and engagement session.

to their wedding photos!

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.

 

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!
