Erin and Edgar's Engagement in Rainy Cupertino

If you live in California, you know how bad the drought has been and how the forecast of rain has been few and far between.  With our luck, we apparently scheduled the engagement shoot on the one day the Bay Area finally saw rain!  Erin and Edgar were such troopers though and toughed out the rainfall, even though it started coming down pretty hard.  We found shelter in the nearby trees and nearly called it a day, but they ending up braving the cold, wet trail and even danced in the rain!  It wasn't long after we decided to walk back to the car that a rainbow came out for a brief minute and then dissipated into the suddenly blue sky.  How could we call it quits then?  Naturally we decided to keep shooting and I'm glad I ended up getting some very sweet and also playful shots of the happy, and slightly damp, couple.  I'm really looking forward to their wedding in Morgan Hill this coming October.  I may have to pack an umbrella, just in case!

Niccolina and Ryan's Engagement at Ulistac Natural Area

Amongst the concrete jungle of the Bay Area, there are still pockets of beautiful nature, golden fields and vibrant greenery. I'm so happy Niccolina and Ryan suggested we shoot at Ulistac Natural Area in Santa Clara since I've never had the chance to really explore that part of the city before.  I love how I've lived in this area my whole life and still have so many new places to seek out and photograph!  Ryan, a native New Yorker, and Niccolina, originally from the Bay Area herself, live just down the street from this little gem and decided it was a quiet, secluded spot we could use to document their love and life together. They are such a sweet couple and I'm looking forward to shooting their wedding in September at the gorgeous Stanford Memorial Church!

Mini Shoot at Picchetti Winery

These precious children were so full of energy for our fall mini session at Picchetti Winery in Cupertino, CA.  Each year I've been able to photograph them as they grow up and it's been such a treat.  Jeremiah and Levi are always such hams, but they are so cute!  They are the epitome of little boys being boys!  With the addition of little sister Lianna, this trio takes some of the sweetest photos.  The whole family has been near and dear to my heart for the past three years, and soon they will be moving up to the northwest state of Washington!  They will be very missed, but I hope we get a chance to do another family shoot later down the line when they visit the Bay Area. ;-) Family mini photo session at Picchetti Winery in Cupertino, CA.

Monica and Brian's Engagement in Cupertino, CA

For anyone who follows my photography blog, you might recognize Pichetti Winery as one of my favorite places to shoot.  It's just such a sweet spot and it's got beautiful scenery.  Granted, you can't tell from the photos, but it's definitely a work-out  to go hiking from each spot to the next!  In the end, I think it's worth it and the results are worth the sweat!  Monica and Brian were such troopers and I had a lovely time chatting and getting to know more about their lives.  Looking forward to shooting their wedding in October at the Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in San Jose.  I imagine it's gonna be a fun party!  Thanks for great shoot you two!
