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!

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!

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 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!
