Engagement Session of Angelina and Frank

Their engagement session took place in one of my favorite locations in San Francisco. It was at Lands End. Great place we have trees, beach and ruins what else can a girl ask for. These two were so sweet and I had a lot of fun with them. Their wedding is in October and stay tunned to their wedding photos!

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!

Industrial Photo Shoot

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.

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!

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!
