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!

Engagement Session of Natalie and Christopher

I had a lot of fun photographing these two in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. It was at Stow Lake and Strawberry Hill portion of the park. I never had been in that part before and they introduced me to a new location which I adored. It was like a little island that you walked around and they had waterfalls and a Japanese Tea Garden all in one area it was lovely. These two are so sweet I really enjoyed getting to know these two and very happy go lucky they are. Please stay tuned to their wedding photos soon!

The Wedding of Ryan and Charlotte

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!

The Wedding of Robert and Angela

These two have such a unique love story. I am not going into it but very vaguely. Lets just say they truly were meant for each other. They knew each other in high school and but never connected at that time and each went on their own paths such as life. It wasn’t until much later they connected and started dating and well as we know got married. When love is meant to find you you can’t get away from it. God puts things in our paths for a reason and they were truly meant to be. They fit each other like a glove anyway. They are both talented artists in their own right Angela an amazing Fado singer and Robert is finishing up film school. Without further a due here are their pics!
