Stylized Shoot

So for a long time I wanted to to do a stylized shoot.  Let me tell you it is so hard to get vendors involved.  I have totally new respect for wedding coordinators or event planners.  Its awesome to come up with an idea but to get everyone involved is another story.  Anyhow, I finally got to make one happen.  It took place in Knights Ferry one of my fav’s to shoot.  It is rustic, garden like and near water.  So it has multiple locations to work with.  So I want to finally thank a few people, The florist and the person who let us use their dining sets and silverware and table settings: Beyone The Terrace, Hair: Kaylee DeJesus and Maria Yiannakou at Blush Salon, they were also the models, JJames Bridal for the use of the wedding dresses and Jessica Boland who did the Makeup, stylized by me.  Enjoy the photos!

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.
