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.

I had the pleasure of photographing these two in there home town San Francisco.  We went first To Clarion Alley for capturing some beautiful art and capturing it on camera.  And a park near by and then off to pier 7 and 28.  It was a wonderful warm day in San Francisco you never know what you may get alot of wind or cloudy but it was neither.  Please enjoy the photos!

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.

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!

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!

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 Taylor and Taylor

Its very rare when I get a couple with the same name.  Its even more rare when one of the wedding coordinators name is also Taylor.  It made a fun and unique wedding day experience.  Ms. Taylor I love her dark hair it makes her look sultry and mysterious especially with her light eyes I enjoyed photographing her.  Taylor is soft spoken and so is her well now husband Taylor but their group of girls and guys are very outspoken.  Needless to say they were in high spirits and very fun crowd.  These two are really make a great couple both gentle souls.  It was an awesome wedding a great party group.  Enjoy the photos!

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!
