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!

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.

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!
