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!
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!
The engagement session was at the beautiful Redwoods Regional Park in Oakland CA. It was a warm fall session. I am thrilled that I will be photographing their amazing wedding at La Grande this coming year. Stay tunned!!
I was super excited to have photographed Devin and Giselle’s wedding. The wedding was at Chatom Winery in Murphy’s CA. They did a first look at Big Trees Calavares CA. The first look was about half hour from the winery. These two locations were gorgeous locations either one. It was a beautiful day it wasn’t cold or hot so nobody was uncomfortable. I had a great time shooting this wedding they allowed time for photos which is so important and for that I am ever grateful. They were such a sweet couple I loved these two. They didn’t mind the camera at all, they were so into each other I really had very little direction.
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.
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!
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!
This lovely couple got married at Club Los Meganos in Brentwood one of my favorite venues in town. These two are perfectly meant for each other. They are both very sweet and kind and patient. I was thrilled to have been their wedding photographer so enjoy the photos.
It was a great pleasure to have photographed Michael and Amanda’s wedding at La Grande in Oakley. She was my first bride that I had Skype with. I know it sounds funny but I have never really used Skype before but I figured it out and I was so proud of myself. Amanda at the time lived in Eureka and it was so much easier to communicate that way. It was a lovely fall wedding with the leaves turning gold in color and it wasn’t cold or hot on her wedding day. I loved how Amanda looked at Michael so cute and sweet on him the whole day. I wish them the very best in their future together.
Her 15th birthday was held in Hercules CA. I had the great pleasure photography this young lady. She had a surprise when she did her special dance when Mickey Mouse came to swift her off her feet. She is a great fan of Mickey Mouse so this meant a lot to her. Enjoy the photos!
