B&J| Hotel Valencia Santana Row Wedding

We had pleasure working with Beatrice and John for their wedding at Hotel Valencia Santana Row in San Jose. Hotel Valencia Santana Row  integrates traditional Spanish design motifs with detailed architectural craftsmanship, which makes itself a popular wedding venue in Bay Area. Santana Row is a popular attraction in San Jose due to its intimate atmosphere and high end fashion stores. There is a beautiful balcony inside Hotel Valencia Santana Row, where Beatrice and John did their first look. The wedding ceremony is at the 3rd floor, where there is a beautiful water fountain. The wedding reception is beside the ceremony site with the combination of Asian and Western decoration.

The following are some selected photos from this wedding at Hotel Valencia Santana Row in San Jose. Congratulations to you, Beatrice and John!

L&M| The Palace of Fine Arts Engagement

I had pleasure working with Lizzi and Matt for their engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco. It was raining just half an hour before our engagement session and then it stopped. There were still lots of tourists at this beautiful site in Bay Area. Lizzi and Matt are absolutely fun to work with. They did an amazing job of preparing many props for this engagement photo shoot, which turned out great. Although this is their first professional photo shoot, they did it like a pro 🙂

The following are some selected photos from this engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts. We can’t wait to work with them for their wedding in Bay Area soon!

V&D| Cinnabar Hills Golf Club Wedding

Virginia and Derek got married at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in San Jose, one of my favorite wedding venues in San Francisco Bay Area. Virgina and Derek has always had great ideas about photos and I learned it happily from our boat engagement session in San Francisco. The wedding started with traditional Asian tea ceremony. To make the wedding unique, it started raining on the wedding day. It is extremely rare to rain in April in Bay Area but it happened. The result are some beautiful shots that many wedding photographers would love to have in some unique weather. The wedding ceremony was held in the rain, which turned out to be really nice. My assistant photographer and I had to apply some protection on the camera even the cameras are weather proof, because such big rain can easily cause trouble to the professional gears. To make things short, the wedding turned out to be very beautiful and we had a wonderful time.

The following are some selected photos from this beautiful rain wedding at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club . Congratulations to you, Virginia and Derek!

The first photo is a classic shot of the bride and groom in the rain holding a lovely umbrella.

V&A| San Jose Japanese Friendship Garden Wedding

Viviana and Alex got married at the scenic Japanese Friendship Garden in downtown San Jose, CA. Japanese Friendship Garden is a beautiful wedding venue in south Bay Area. Viviana and Alex are from Italy and they decided to get married in America. Viviana decided to have fun and not to wear a wedding dress to keep it simple. It was a day of joyfulness. The weather was beautiful too. The wedding ceremony was at the tea house inside Japanese Friendship Garden. There were lots of tourists at Japanese Friendship Garden. But all the people were so nice and accommodating, which made the photography work at the bridge area very easy. The red bridge at the Japanese Friendship Garden is such a popular spot that everybody wants to take photos there 🙂 We even had a small adventure by going into the bushes to get the shot of the bride and groom under a blooming cherry tree. When it was dark, we took the last set of photos.

The following are some selected photos from this wedding in Japanese Friendship Garden, San Jose, CA. Congratulations to you, Viviana & Alex!

J&R| The Bridges Golf Club Wedding

Jessica & Rich got married at The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, CA. I worked with Jessica and Rich for their engagement session in South Bay area last summer. Now it is Winter time. It is raining season in Bay Area in January. Jessica and Rich made good usage of the rain with some nice umbrellas. We did the first look for the cute couple during the rain break. When the first look session was done, it started raining again. The wedding ceremony is indoor with nice decoration. After the ceremony, we went to the tunnel area for more photos. I took the last set of photos for the bride and groom in the end.

The following are some selected photos from Jessica and Rich’s wedding at the Bridges Golf Club. Congratulations to you, Jessica & Rich!
