Wedding photography became an obsession of mine two years ago as I planned my own wedding to my best friend, Jesse. I knew the day would be one of the most exciting, happiest days of my life thus far and a whirlwind of emotions for me, my family and friends. I desperately wanted to document every aspect. As I researched photographers, I became inspired. I soon realized photography could do much more than remind you of how you looked that day or who was in attendance, it could also capture the pure unadulterated emotion. The images I saw moved me. It could be the subtle glance a bride gives her father right before he gives her away or the laughter evoked by a humorous best man speech (one of my favorite things is to see a couple laugh together). When it is all put together, it becomes a precious novel without a single word. It is the challenge of capturing these moments that allow me to truly love what I do!

San Jose Family Portraits : Jones Family

I just adore this family! The last time we photographed Olivia she was teeny tiny. Now, she’s a loving big sister to her sweet brother Ian. They grow up so fast! Ian, like his big sister when she was his age, is extremely easy going and didn’t cry once. We had so much fun catching up with our friends Sena and Rodney while capturing their cutie pie children.

Bentley Reserve Wedding : Teresa + Jing

It was obvious from the first time we met Teresa and Jing that they complimented each other just perfectly. Teresa has a smile that lights up the room and Jing really knows how to make her smile. From the simple things like the way he looks at her to knowing just exactly what purse she had her eye on for the longest time.

We were thrilled to be back to the beautiful Bentley Reserve for their wedding where every detail was planned to perfection. Aside from the gorgeous cake and flowers, the most noticeable thing was how much love was in the room for these two. We’ll never forget the energy that was exuded from the moment the bridal party entered the room and lasted throughout the night.

Sheraton Petaluma Wedding : Alex + Crystal

Alex was somewhat of a self proclaimed bachelor. That is, until he met Crystal and everything changed. While it seemed to family and friends that he wanted to always remain a bachelor, he really was just waiting for his perfect match.

Alex and Crystal compliment each other so well. She is sweet, down to earth, and spends much of her time caring for puppies who will one day be service dogs. He is charming, friendly, young at heart and has the best sense of humor. Together, they are so easy going and just happy to be together.

We have known Crystal and Alex for quite a long time. Our families have been celebrating Christmas together ever since I was six. So when we heard of their engagement and were asked to be their photographers, we were ecstatic and completely up for having more hang out time with them outside of our typical yearly gathering. As an added plus, we got to work with our other dear friends and an amazingly talented couple Chris and Tina from iDesign and Events who did an amazing job putting together all the flowers, DJing, and coordinating!
