The Wedding of Steven and Mishaela

The wedding of Steven and Mishaela was at a private residence in Gilroy CA. She couldn’t ask for a better location for her private wedding. I had only met Mishaela in person a few days before her wedding to go over a timeline. This couple are so young but don’t let that fool you they are so sure of themselves and strong and will conquer the world. Steven just became an officer for San Jose Department and Ms. Mishaela she works in an office but she is so organized and with it that it amazes me how together she is for such a young gal. Anyway, I love her eyes and smile and gorgeous skin and I love how sweet and adorable Steven is with her. Enjoy the pictures!

This wedding was a lot of fun. Very happy and boisterous families on either side. They made you feel very warm and comfortable. Besides all that this young couple were so polite and kind and very cute. There wedding was an early Summer wedding held at The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. It wasn’t hard photographing them because they should how much in love they are so it made my job very easy to convey. Enjoy the photos!

The Engagement Session of Arianna and Robert

I meet these two love birds at a bridal fair about a year ago. I got the pleasure to shoot their engagement session. They are great fans of all things wine and what better way then to photograph them in Napa. So we were to take their photos at Chateau Montelena but they were closed and I just didn’t realize that all or most all wineries close around 5-6pm. So we went to a near by winery called Towmey Winery. I had been there once before and loved their wines. Anyway, they are not gated so we got to do some pictures around the property. Poor Robert was a little nervous he didn’t and rightfully so be in trouble and be sent to jail for trespassing. I did it anyway. We didn’t disrespect their property we just wanted a beautiful background for photos. And beautiful it is. Arianna and Robert were troopers throughout the shoot. Thanks for putting up with my silliness. Anyway, I enjoyed their photos they are light and airy and fun. Stay tunned for their wedding pics!

Kobina’s Senior Session

I enjoyed photographing this young man’s senior session.  He is so polite and sweet.  He is a graduating 2018 Liberty High School Student from Brentwood CA.  This young man will go far.  I have been wanting to do more senior and studio photos for practice but also if there is bad weather either really hot or raining I now can have access to a studio environment.

Engagement Session of Jeannine and Ryan

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at one of my favorite places Tilden Park in Berkley.  I believe Ryan once was an officer and now is a teacher or the post he was a teacher and now is an officer.  Anyway these two are sweet people and they brought their cute little pup for a photo opp.  I just love when clients bring their pets to do some photos with them.  I get a puppy break.  Anyway enjoy the photos.

Headshots of Savannah

I have known this young lady for quit sometime.  I was more than tickled pink to do some head shots for her modeling and acting press cards.  I knew this young lady for sometime would be awesome to do modeling she has the look for it and the camera just loves her face.  These are just head shots we did another set of photos which I will show soon of more of a editorial feel.  So stay tunned for those!

Maternity Session of Angelina

I photographed this gorgeous lady’s wedding last year and was thrilled to find out she was having a baby.  I had the pleasure to photograph her maternity session she looked gorgeous.  These photos were taken during the morning.  I was concerned at first but the outcome came out great.  I had a little flowey action with her dress and was able to freeze that.  This was photographed at the beautiful Round Valley Park in Brentwood CA.

Deborah and Joseph’s Engagement Session

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose.  We went toward the back area of the museum and its such a beautiful garden.  I meet these two at a bridal fair and such personalities they have.  I wish them the best they are getting married pretty soon!
