The Wedding of Gerald and April

I had the pleasure to photograph this lovely young couples wedding in early April of this year.  Their wedding was at Crystal Springs in Burlingame CA.  It was a very lively reception with a wonderful family and friends embracing the couple.  Congratulations to a great couple, Gerald and April!

Taylor’s Senior Session

I have been wanting to do graduating senior photos for quit sometime.  I had the opportunity with this lovely young lady that goes to Heritage High School in Brentwood ca.  We shot these in a studio setting at the studio I work at.  I really like to do both outdoors and in.

Engagement Session of Katlyn and Austin

I photographed Katyln and Austin’s engagement session on their property.  Let me just say how gorgeous this property is.  The open space and land and the views were stunning.  I loved the cowboy hats and country wears.  Unfortunately I was not their wedding photographer. I would have loved to shoot their wedding being on their property with these extraordinary views couldn’t ask for a better location.  But at least they let me in for a brief moment in their beautiful property to do their Engagement session.  Enjoy the photos.

The Wedding of Clint and Nicole

The wedding was held at the beautiful Casa Real in Pleasanton CA.  Ceremony and reception same location.  It was a winter wedding in January of this year.  Funny thing it had been sunny for quit some time but then the weather decided to drizzle on and off again but either way the light was really nice.  Nicole looked stunning in casing her hour glass figure so beautifully.  I meet Clint for the first time on their wedding day what a nice young man.  He was very graceful and kind. Reception was so lively and exciting.  It awesome to see people just let loose.  I wish these two the very best and thank them for having me shoot their wedding day.  Please enjoy the photos!

Mindy’s Maternity Session

I shot these photos at Concannon Winery.  It was a very interesting day to say the least.  It rained and then the sun came out for a little while and it rained again and repeat.  But toward the end of the session the stormy clouds looked amazing against the Victorian house that was lite and I had to take the opportunity photograph her here.  Enjoy the photos:

Wedding of Michael and Irene

I really had a great time hanging with this couple.  They were truly wonderful to work with.  They were easy going and funny.  It was a lovely wedding something tragic happened which I will not go into but even through

                they held their head up high and pushed forward and made their wedding beautiful and memorable.  These two are just down to earth people and so so funny.  The wedding was great but to be honest just going to see them prior to the wedding at their home and afterward in giving them their wedding album is where I just enjoyed hanging with them.  Anyway I wish them a wonderful life together.  Enjoy the photos.

 

 

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!
