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!
It was a pleasure photographing this couple. It was a quaint wedding at Jessica’s parents home in Palo Alto CA. A beautiful setting for a wedding. Rithy and Jessica were fun and funny and just loved every moment they were with their guests and thats what its about sharing love, laughter and being in the moment. Enjoy the photos!
A Sacramento Engagement session of an adoring couple. It was a winter engagement session at a flower garden in downtown Sacramento CA. Nicole will soon say the I do’s to Andre. I wish them a lot of love and happiness.
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!
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!
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!
I enjoyed photographing this young man’s senior session. He is so polite and sweet. He is a graduating 2018 Liberty High School Student from Brentwood CA. This young man will go far. I have been wanting to do more senior and studio photos for practice but also if there is bad weather either really hot or raining I now can have access to a studio environment.
I had the pleasure of photographing these two in there home town San Francisco. We went first To Clarion Alley for capturing some beautiful art and capturing it on camera. And a park near by and then off to pier 7 and 28. It was a wonderful warm day in San Francisco you never know what you may get alot of wind or cloudy but it was neither. Please enjoy the photos!
I had the pleasure of photographing these two at one of my favorite places Tilden Park in Berkley. I believe Ryan once was an officer and now is a teacher or the post he was a teacher and now is an officer. Anyway these two are sweet people and they brought their cute little pup for a photo opp. I just love when clients bring their pets to do some photos with them. I get a puppy break. Anyway enjoy the photos.
So for a long time I wanted to to do a stylized shoot. Let me tell you it is so hard to get vendors involved. I have totally new respect for wedding coordinators or event planners. Its awesome to come up with an idea but to get everyone involved is another story. Anyhow, I finally got to make one happen. It took place in Knights Ferry one of my fav’s to shoot. It is rustic, garden like and near water. So it has multiple locations to work with. So I want to finally thank a few people, The florist and the person who let us use their dining sets and silverware and table settings: Beyone The Terrace, Hair: Kaylee DeJesus and Maria Yiannakou at Blush Salon, they were also the models, JJames Bridal for the use of the wedding dresses and Jessica Boland who did the Makeup, stylized by me. Enjoy the photos!
