I had the great opportunity to photograph Jessica and Robert for their maternity session at the Markham Nature park in Concord CA. I photographed their wedding and when they told me they were expecting and wanted some photos I was so excited for them. So here are a few of the photos of their session. Congratulations you two!!
I had an idea of doing an industrial shoot with Ms. Savannah. I did a photo session with her at one point and I wanted to do another one with her again. I came up with the industrial idea. It was so much fun I hope to do more with Savannah. Sometimes you have to shoot for yourself for the heck of it.
Their wedding was a lovely quaint wedding at the Beautiful Depot Hotel in Sonoma CA. It is a rustic late 19th century hotel. Charlotte was glowing and beaming she looked stunning. Ryan couldn’t get his eyes off his bride. It was a beautiful morning early afternoon wedding. At first I was kinda nervous about the lighting but honestly it worked out great. The first half of the morning was a bit cloudy then later the sun came out but it did turn out amazing. I love how they incorporated Lily their cute little pup. She was part of the bridal party. She had her own flower crown supper cute. Congratulations you two!
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 idea behind the sytlized shoot was just to try different lighting techniques. I couldn’t do evening because it would have been a supper long day. But that will be next on my list. This couple I photographed their wedding a few months back and asked if they would be interested since it was really still fresh and plus now they get to have more photos of just themselves. On their actual wedding day it was really hot and doing this session it was more enjoyable being outside since it was a lot cooler. I was really happy that I got to play and they were really good sports about the whole thing. So thank you Willie and Michele and I wish the best for both of you!!
