The wedding of Kevin and Eva

I meet this lovely couple at a bridal fair and when Eva told me she was getting married at the beautiful Brazilian Room in Berkley I was over the moon about it. It is one of my favorite venues in the Bay Area because of its natural beauty. The actual building is nice but the area around it is stunning surrounded by beautiful trees. I enjoyed working with them they are super calming and just went with the flow. It was fun to find out that Eva was an actual family member of one of my past brides it even made it more special to me. Anyway, enjoy these photos!

The Wedding of Robert and Colette

This lovely couple got married at the very romantic Wine and Roses venue in Lodi. It was a very quaint wedding with loving family and a few friends. Colette looked absolutely stunning with her form fitting wedding dress. Robert smiled from ear to ear when looking at his lovely bride. I had a wonderful time photographing these two sweet couple. Enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Ricardo and Ivette

Miss Ivette she is so sweet and very sultry. I had the pleasure of working with these two lovely people and I feel blessed that they chose me to be their photographer. Ivette’s day started out with getting ready in a local hotel and when I saw her dress I went nuts over it. The dress was so stunning. They got married at the gorgeous Jarlaths Catholic church in Oakland Ca. And their wedding reception was held at La Grande Wedding and Event Center. These two were really easy to work with and alot of fun. I love how they are just so comfortable in front of a camera like its not even there. Please enjoy the photos!

Robert and Arianna Wedding

I had the pleasure to photograph this lovely couple at the beautiful Elliston Vineyards. I love this charming location it feels like a cross between old English Country cottage and 19th century mansion. But the place is nestled in the country side of Sunol Ca. It truly is a very unique place. Arianna looked so gorgeous. Everyone was a bit afraid it would rain and it did a little but shortly after she came down the aisle it stopped. But that didn’t stop how wonderful her wedding turned out to be. What can I say about Robert accept that I love his sense of humor. He is so funny made the day go smoothly with his fun attitude and his love look at his bride.

This lovely couple were married in Rich’s parents property in Oakley CA. They couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The property is beautiful and roomy enough for all their guests. Paige looked as though she stepped out of a magazine. She is such a wonderful young lady. Rich is fun and loves to laugh and enjoy friends company. Their wedding was so much fun.

The Wedding of Ignacio and Noemi

These two couldn’t be anymore adorable if they tried. I loved the first time I met them. They are so open and friendly and funny. Ignacio has a real sense of humor and Noemi is more grounded it really is a good balance for the both of them. On their wedding day you can feel the love between and that love spewed over with the family as well. Although it was a very big wedding, it felt cozy and warm. They had their wedding ceremony at The Gorgeous Mission in Hayward California. The grounds are not the biggest but very beautiful none the less and many picture moment opportunities. It was a fun wedding. Enjoy the photos!
