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.

The Wedding of Dan and Gabrielle

I truly loved shooting Dan and Gabies wedding day.  The venue was so gorgeous at the David Girard Vineyards in Placerville.  Gabbie had beautiful decor and and used stunning furniture to give it a rustic feel to her wedding day.  The location was on a hill that overlooked the vineyard it was breath taking.  Gabie is a bit of an artist herself she created her own bouquet made of gems and broaches.  They were a fun couple and I was happy to have been the one to photograph their wedding!

 

             

The Wedding of Andy and Carla

The wedding was held at the beautiful Club Los Meganos in Brentwood CA. Although it was a very warm day, the wedding was quit beautiful. The decor was stunning which Carla’s mom has great taste in designing the reception hall and she also created a lot of the floral pieces to go in the ceremony site and reception to. These two were real troopers hanging in there with me as we did their photos. They were a fun bunch. Please enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Danny and Stephen

I was really happy when a friend of mine asked me to photography their wedding. I felt blessed and honored to shoot these wonderful people. Danny and Stephen gave me ample time to shoot their pictures before the ceremony which I think was great. They also did that because they just wanted to have fun at their reception and what a fun reception it was. I wish these two the best in life and thank you for having me be the photographer to your awesome wedding!!!

Willie and Michele Stylized Shoot

The idea behind the sytlized shoot was just to try different lighting techniques. I couldn’t do evening because it would have been a supper long day. But that will be next on my list. This couple I photographed their wedding a few months back and asked if they would be interested since it was really still fresh and plus now they get to have more photos of just themselves. On their actual wedding day it was really hot and doing this session it was more enjoyable being outside since it was a lot cooler. I was really happy that I got to play and they were really good sports about the whole thing. So thank you Willie and Michele and I wish the best for both of you!!

The Wedding of James and Tina

Tina had a lovely quaint wedding in Alameda. Her decor was to perfection and she did it all herself. I loved how they incorporated their children in their wedding ceremony and bridal party. I loved both the brides dress it was very delicate and flowey while Jame’s suit looked like something out of the 1950’s which was awesome. I wish them all the best in life, enjoy the photos!

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 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.
