Baker Beach Engagement of Rachel & Joel

Rachel & Joel live in Bay Area and they are getting married in Hawaii, so that they decided to take engagement photos in San Francisco. We started at Legion of Honor and finished at Baker Beach. Rachel & Joel did a fantastic job walking around some of my favorite photography spots (some of which are not easy to access :)). Though it was a little bit windy on the beach, but the view is fantastic with blue sky and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

The following are some preview photos from the engagement session. More photos are coming!

Panther Beach engagement of Rachel & Dan

I had a great time working with Rachel and Dan for their engagement session at Panther Beach, Santa Cruz, CA. Panther beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in San Francisco Bay Area. This beach is also one of the least visited beaches due to its isolate location. This makes Panther beach one of my favorite photo sites in Bay Area. Rachel and Dan are just fantastic to work with. They prepared some nice props such as balloons, which made the engagement session super fun and romantic. We also had some adventure by climbing down the cliffs to the beach.

The following are some selected photos of the engagement session with Rachel and Dan at Panther beach, Santa Cruz, CA. We can’t wait working with them for their wedding in San Jose soon!

Santa Cruz Train and Panther Beach Glamour Shots

I was thrilled working with Cashmere for her glamour photo session in Santa Cruz. We first went to Roaring Camp in Felton for some nice shots with trains. Later on, we ventured to Panther Beach for more photos. Those two places are my favorite locations for engagement photos and wedding portraits. Cashmere was amazing to work with. It was a blast and I was able to get some beautiful and creative shots for her. BTW, her niece is also becoming a model, so that there will be a few shots of her niece in this session 🙂

The following are some selected photos of this glamour photo session with Cashmere in Santa Cruz.

C&G| Oceano Hotel & Spa Half Moon Bay Wedding

Courtney & Greg got married at the beautiful Oceano Hotel & Spa Half Moon Bay. Oceano Hotel & Spa Half Moon Bay is located at the Half Moon Bay Harbor, which makes it a wonderful beach wedding venue in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is easily one of my favorite weddings this year. The couple are super cute and the wedding venue is also my favorite. I have photographed multiple weddings at Oceano Hotel & Spa Half Moon Bay.  It is great coming back and work with Courtney & Greg for their big day. Courtney and Greg had one of the best first looks at the harbor. With blue sky, blue sea and white ships as the background, the whole scenery is just fantastic. By looking at the photos, people may not know that Courtney had to walk a long way for this set of photos. But in the end, it is all worth it and we had a great time. The wedding decoration is also beautiful with seashells at the table and wedding cake. During sunset time, we went to the La Costanera Restaurant at Montara Beach for sunset photos. At the reception, we was lucky to photograph also one of the best wedding dances. Courtney and Greg danced so well that we got some really nice shots.

The following are some selected photos of the wedding at Oceano Hotel & Spa Half Moon Bay. Congratulations to you, Courtney & Greg!

The first photo was taken at the Montara Beach in Half Moon Bay, CA.

Nancy & Al got married! Their wedding is such a touching story. Nancy and Al are one of the bridesmaid and groomsmen of their best friends. They were in love with each other forty years ago. Then somehow, they got separated. More than forty years later, Nancy was visiting a vineyard and it turned out that vineyard is Al’s brother’s. So they got in touch with each other again. And finally, they decided to tie the knot after such a long time. Nancy and Al’s wedding ceremony site is at reception is at St. Mary’s Church in Los Gatos, and their wedding reception is at Adobe Lodge in Santa Clara University. Adobe lodge was built in 1822 and is the only adobe brick building remaining from the original Santa Clara Mission. Adobe lodge is also a popular wedding venue in Bay Area. The wedding is so touching and romantic, that we had a great time with this amazing couple.
