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!

Rich and Paige Wedding

This lovely couple were married in Rich’s parents property in Oakley CA. They couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The property is beautiful and roomy enough for all their guests. Paige looked as though she stepped out of a magazine. She is such a wonderful young lady. Rich is fun and loves to laugh and enjoy friends company. Their wedding was so much fun.

The Wedding of Ignacio and Noemi

These two couldn’t be anymore adorable if they tried. I loved the first time I met them. They are so open and friendly and funny. Ignacio has a real sense of humor and Noemi is more grounded it really is a good balance for the both of them. On their wedding day you can feel the love between and that love spewed over with the family as well. Although it was a very big wedding, it felt cozy and warm. They had their wedding ceremony at The Gorgeous Mission in Hayward California. The grounds are not the biggest but very beautiful none the less and many picture moment opportunities. It was a fun wedding. Enjoy the photos!

The Engagement Session Of Jessica and Robert

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the lovely Heather Farm in Walnut Creek CA. The grounds have this beautiful rose garden and during our session it was in full bloom. It was a warm and sunny summer morning we shot their engagement photos. Usually I love to shoot primarily in the evening but really early in the morning is just as nice lighting wise as it is in the evening. Stay tuned for their wedding pics.
