Not too long ago I shot a wedding for the new husband and wife--Katarina and James. I've shot many, many weddings during my career as a photographer. It's always nice hearing the couples' love storys; Katarina and James actually met through online dating-- How awesome is that?
Their wedding was held in San Jose's City Hall on West Hedding Street, San Jose, California. The ceremony was very small with only 6 guests.
Congrats again Katarina and James!
San Francisco City Hall is easily becoming one of my favorite places to shoot...READ MORE
The holidays are approaching soon, so I'm expecting many photo shoots!!
Yesterday, I shot a a photo shoot with Carole and her boyfriend. They were visiting San Francisco for a couple days, so they needed a photographer to capture their time spent here together! They seemed so in love-- I can understand why they wanted to photos taken for this very first trip they took together.
They stayed at the amazing St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco in South Market district. They wanted boudoir type photos to be taken in their room--of course they were very tasteful and classy. We then took photos outside of the hotel.
It was very inspiring to see a couple so in love! I think the photos turned out great. I compiled all the photos in a CD for Carole as well.
How's everyone doing?
I've been shooting many weddings! I shot yet another one at San Francisco City Hall. I have probably shot more than a dozen weddings here that it almost feels like home to me ;).
Melissa approached me with the need for a professional photographer for this very special event. There were very few people--around 8 to 10 people. But the event was still just as precious, and I think I captured the event well.
Congrats again, Melissa!
I got the opportunity to shoot another wedding-- Linda and Liam's Wedding. While I have had experience shooting very big weddings, this wedding was very intimate and small, and I have to say--I really enjoyed it. The wedding was held at Moon Mountain Ranch in Sonoma. The location was absolutely amazing. It was very secluded and overlooked the beautiful vineyards and scenery of Sonoma. it was a perfect place for an intimate wedding. The ceremony and decorations were beautiful---Yellow and Teal colored theme, lovely flowers, balloons, and even some lemonade. The most enchanting part of the wedding was the candle lighting ceremony-- it definitely set the mood! Congratulations Linda and Liam!
One of the greatest things about being a photographer is I get the capture the moments that matter the most. As a photographer, the picture I take allows my clients to savor that moment and feeling in a picture and relive it over and over. It's a huge job, but it's very rewarding. Last Wednesday, I did my first videography gig for a marriage proposal. We shot at Sutro heights Park near Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Argel, has been planning this very special occasion very carefully and meticulously, so I knew I had to do an awesome job. He drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco, changed into a tuxedo for the proposal, and hired Andy Kong to play "Secrets" by One Republic as he climbed up to propose to Jessica. All of their friends and family were there to share this special moment with them as well. It was a very fun experience. I am hoping to work more with videography! Congrats, again Argel and Jessica!
Today, I shot Scott and Jackie's engagement at Stinson Beach located on Highway One just north of San Francisco. It was a very fun shoot. Since Jackie is a professional soccer player, they wanted to incorporate a soccer ball in the shoot. I also did photos around Mt. Tam/Tamalpais State Park located in the beautiful Marin County since both Scott and Jackie love to hike. We were able to incorporate some hiking boots in the photo shoot. I love being able to take pictures that reflect my clients-- the pictures definitely show their great personalities! It was such an experience learning about and working with people like Scott and Jackie-- they have both worked for Teachers for America for 4 years and teach in Richmond, Ca. Such an awesome couple. Congrats Scott and Jackie! Best of luck!
Just wanted to share with you guys a shoot I did for a wedding recently!
Yesterday, I was the professional photographer for Linda Merola and Liam Galbreth's Wedding.
The wedding took place at Moon Mountain Road in Sonoma, California. Such as beautiful place for a wedding! Great scenery and such a romantic atmosphere. It was a very intimate wedding with around 35 guests.
While I took pictures of the ceremony in the afternoon, I also took photos of the families and the newly formed family :)
Linda specifically wanted photos of her and her groom, the couple and Liam's daughters, the entire wedding party, the couple with the bride's mother and family, the bride with the extended family, and the same for the groom's side of the family.
I am always more than happy to listen to my clients' needs! There's nothing worse than having a picky photographer. Who wants that??
Anyways, looking forward to more weddings!
Yesterday, I got the opportunity to work with the company Terraboost as their photographer in Dublin, California. In order to spread awareness and further interest about the company, I took pictures of customers using their hand-sanitizing advertisement products. I shot at two locations-- at the Safeway on Dublin Blvd. and the Safeway on Tassajara blvd. This photographs will hopefully ensure that Safeway continues to utilize their product. I think Terraboost is on to something-- advertisements while sanitizing hands is a great marketing tool! I hope to get involved in more marketing and advertising!
Shot a very cool event a couple days ago, so I wanted to share it with all my readers!
On Wednesday, I shot a corporate event for America's Cup (you can check out their website at www.americascup.com). It was a client appreciate party celebrating the America's Cup racing in San Francisco. This was a very big event--with about 200 guests at the La Mar Cebichería Peruana restaurant at the Embarcadero in San Francisco, California. It was a very fun and exciting event to shoot!
Hopefully I will be able to shoot more corporate events in the near future!
