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.

    Your automobile isn’t just a vehicle for taking you
    from point A to point B; it is a major part of your life.
    When you bought your first car you promised it by name
    to take good care of it and love it forever, but things happen and life goes on.
    Maybe there is a new car in your life, or maybe you still have the
    old jalopy you first fell in love with, and you want to take better care of it.
    You already give your car the best oil and fuel to take care of the engine in top condition,
    but what do you do to keep the auto body in good upkeep?

    When people think of a car body, they think it completely cosmetic, and so a lot will ignore it other than a wash and maybe a wax if they feel flashy.
    Auto body shops do much more for a car than cosmetic treatment.
    Other than the usual paintjob you can get from
    an auto body shop, they also do repair work on scuffs, scratches,
    dings, dents, and even replacing bumpers and mirrors. Fixing your bumpers and mirrors at an auto body shop makes sense;
    you need those to drive safely so they are not considered vanity, but what about scuffs, dings, and dents?

    Depending on the position of the dents, they can actually
    reduce highway gas mileage, and a car that’s owner looks like
    they don’t care about it, then others won’t care about it like if they hit it in a parking lot with their car
    door, since what is one more scuff?
    A good auto body shop will make sure that the repairs done to the body of your vehicle will make it look like it did when it
    came from the factory. Don’t settle for an auto body shop that will try and force unneeded treatments on you so they can make more money, and they can even go as far
    to try and scare you into using them, citing car
    insurance requirements and the like. Chose a reputable, honest auto body shop,
    that will treat you fairly, and never push you to add any unnecessary repairs that you don’t need and don’t want; we believe you as a consumer have the fundamental right
    to spend your money where you want.
    If your car or vehicle is in bad appearance, it can affect the integrity and safety of the car, not just how good it looks.
    When you realize you need to go to an auto body shop to fix your car’s body, don’t go with just
    any store, and choose a reputable repair shop that has a reputation for fair and
    honest dealings.

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!
