Engagement Session of Angelina and Frank

Their engagement session took place in one of my favorite locations in San Francisco. It was at Lands End. Great place we have trees, beach and ruins what else can a girl ask for. These two were so sweet and I had a lot of fun with them. Their wedding is in October and stay tunned to their wedding photos!

The Wedding of Sean and Danielle

What a lovely couple these two are. Danielle’s smile and laughter fills up a room. Sean’s serious look makes great photos he really could be in a GQ magazine. They blended their families together and I see nothing but goodness from these two humans. Danielle’s happiness is very contagious. It makes you feel really good being around her. Sean is more on the quiet side but a lovely person. I wish he model for me. Anyway they were married in Lake Tahoe among their 20 friends and family members. It took place at Gar Woods Grill and Pier in Cornelian Bay CA. I wish them nothing but happiness.

The Wedding of Kyle and Gabriella

This bride and groom were real troopers. Their wedding reception was suppose to take place in Brentwood community center but during their wedding there were a lot of electrical outages because of fire season and the community center was one of those places. So they were very fortunate to have their wedding held in La Belle Vie in Rio Vista. Its interesting that was the only day that they had that was free and they jumped right in. Things happen for reasons and their wedding turned out beautifully. Very romantic setting they had who could ask for more. So when one door closes another one opens. These two are an adorable couple and I wish them the best in their lives. Enjoy the photos!

Barclay Family

I love photographing regular families each year. Shelly, Barclay and their little ones are always a lot of fun to see them and watch how fast they grow. I love been a small participant in viewing their family dynamic for a little while and capturing their bond. I hope to get to photograph them again this coming year.

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!

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!
