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!

The wedding of Julian and Cindy

I met Cindy at a bridal fair. Actually, I first met her mom and she asked me if I happened to be Portuguese and I said yes and from there I we just connected. I loved photographing Julian and Cindy’s wedding. It was held at the beautiful Grand Island Mansion. She had a Great Catsby theme. All the bridesmaids and some of the guest really embraced the theme. Her decor was the high feathers and gold colors and some geometric shapes. She captured her theme really well and in good taste. This was a real fun wedding 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!

The Wedding of Juan and Angelica

The lovely wedding of Juan and Angelica was held at The Elks Lodge in Pittsburg CA. We did most of their portraits outdoors in downtown Pittsburg. Downtown Pittsburg is a very lovely location with old style buildings and brick walls so we utilized them. This wedding was a winter wedding which is so nice to do shoot you don’t have to beat the heat. But her decorations was quit wonderful and colorful. So congrats you two and enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Christian and Karen

These two are adorable. I asked Karen if she couldn’t wait to put on her wedding dress and she told me that she was more excited about putting on her shoes than her dress. They are stunning. These two were married at St. Mary’s cathedral in San Francisco. What an enormous and overwhelmingly beautiful site. Pictures truly can’t describe how this location is. We did some photos in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts and then off to the venue. Please enjoy the photos.
