J&R| Seacliff Beach Engagement in Santa Cruz

Jessica and Rich got engaged! I had pleasure working with them for their engagement session at Santa Cruz state park and Seacliff Beach. We originally planned to take the photos at Aptos Village Park, which is a popular natural-scene wedding venue to the south of bay area. It turned out that there was a festival going on, so we decided to change the first site to Santa Cruz woods nearby. We had some adventure in the woods with lots of green. Then we headed to Seacliff beach for the beach scene photos. Jessica & Rich got a basket for the engagement session. Though they did not have much photo experience, it turned out to be very successful 🙂

The following are some selected photos from this engagement session in Santa Cruz woods and Seacliff Beach. We can’t wait to work with them for their wedding next year.

A&B| Elliston Vineyards Wedding

Angelina and Ben got married at the romantic Elliston Vineyards in Sunol, Northern California. Elliston Vineyards was established in 1890. It is currently a historic site and a favorite wedding venue in bay area. Angelina and Ben planned this wedding far away because they were still in Asia until two weeks before their wedding day. They found me thanks to their sister Helen’s help. This wedding turned out to be one of my favorite weddings, because Elliston Vineyards is such a pretty wedding venue with many photo opportunities. Moreover, both Angelina and Ben were great working with and they posed really well. This was an intimate wedding with small bridal party, which gave us plenty of time for bridal portrait photos.

The following are some selected photos from this winery wedding at Elliston Vineyards. Congratulations to you, Angelina & Ben!

C&T| Montalvo Arts Center Mini Engagement

I had pleasure working with Cheryl and TJ for a mini-engagement session at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga. We had an engagement session at Byington Winery early this year. Because of the heavy rain last time, we decided to add a mini session for a better weather 🙂 It turned out to be a cloudy day but still great for photos.

The following are a few selected photos from this engagement session at Saratoga, south bay area.

P&D| Immanuel Lutheran Church Wedding

Paula & Derrick got married! The wedding ceremony is at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Los Gatos, and the wedding reception is at Asian Pearl Seafood Restaurant in Fremont. It was super fun working with Paula and Derrick and I learned it from the engagement session at Pleasanton. So it was great working with them again for their wedding. This is a big wedding with lots of guests. Paula got ready at Hyatt in Fremont and Derrick got ready at the church directly. Because they planned to take lots of group photos, they did the first-look session in the church. It helped a lot on the schedule so that we had a smooth wedding day. The bridal party also helped a lot from the beginning to the end. The wedding coordinator Lynn from the Immanuel Lutheran Church gave lots of good ideas for photography spots around the church. So a shout out for her too.

The following are some selected photos from this wedding. Congratulations to you, Paula and Derrick!

Make a list of how you want your wedding, ceroemny, attire, reception, decorations, and food..figure out each area of the wedding..making a list of things you want to do. Then you can make phone calls for prices.
