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.

The Wedding of Robert and Ashley

Robert and Ashley’s wedding was at the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club. Exquisite rolling hills lavished with Oak Trees a wonderful scene for a fantastic wedding. And so it was. Ashley is in love with everything Disney and she put together in a very simple and grown up way of implementing Disney into her wedding decor. She is also a big fan of Pepsi which was a big hit on her day. This two were balls of energy and I had fun photographing them enjoy the photos!

The Engagement Session Of Jessica and Robert

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the lovely Heather Farm in Walnut Creek CA. The grounds have this beautiful rose garden and during our session it was in full bloom. It was a warm and sunny summer morning we shot their engagement photos. Usually I love to shoot primarily in the evening but really early in the morning is just as nice lighting wise as it is in the evening. Stay tuned for their wedding pics.
