Barclay Family

I love photographing regular families each year. Shelly, Barclay and their little ones are always a lot of fun to see them and watch how fast they grow. I love been a small participant in viewing their family dynamic for a little while and capturing their bond. I hope to get to photograph them again this coming year.

Jacob and Alex Wedding

Their wedding was at the beautiful chapel of St. Anne’s catholic church in Byron CA. I love the Spanish style architecture of the church and surrounding areas. It is set in a location where there is vast land so not only the building can be used for beautiful photo opportunities so is the land around it. The chapel is so cute and tiny but not to tiny that you can’t have a small ceremony it was cozy. Alex looked radiant and beaming from ear to ear on her wedding day. Jacob is more the serious one but he sure let loose on the dance floor. This couple is so lovely I wish them the very best in their future together. Enjoy the photos!

Alex and Jacob’s Engagement Session

I was so luck to have been chosen to photograph well first their engagement session and secondly their wedding. I am sharing with you today their engagement session. It was at the beautiful Round Valley Regional Park a gem here for Brentwood. It was a very warm day but they were really good troopers to get their pictures done. I loved the adorable dress that Alex wore was vintage style which always warms up my heart. Stay tunned for their wedding photos!

The Engagement Session of Tara and Leonard

I shot this engagement session in San Mateo. They were supper friendly and adorable. Leonard surprisingly works as a teacher and I thought he was like maybe a graphic designer or something and miss Tara is a dispatcher so she must have lots of patience. It was really nice to get to know them for a couple of hours at least. I met Tara at a bridal fair and she won an entire trunk prize so all kinds of things she won and I was among that prize. There were I am sure other photographers who offered their services but I was happy to have been chosen. Anyway, I wish them all the best in their future!

Family session of Maria and Darrin

Every Year since the first child of theirs I have been doing their family photos. There is nothing more celebrating and endearing than seeing your past wedding clients having you take part in their lives when shooting their families. I certainly hope that I get to take their picture this year again. They are an adorable family.
