Hope & Jake's Wedding at Retzlaff Vineyards Winery

From top to bottom, this wedding was a dream!  It was just bursting at the seams with creativity and pretty things and I had a heck of a time narrowing down all the photos I wanted to show on this post!  First of all, Hope was a stunning bride.  No doubt about that.  Her gorgeous beaded lace dress, flower crown and back necklace were all so beautiful on her!  Jake, her handsome husband, rocked a tweed vest with a blush bow tie and of course some quirky socks (picked out by the bride herself).  I loved all the details from this day as well.  Hope, a graphic designer on the side, designed all the signs and created a custom logo for the couple,  which was printed on the menu, water bottles, and of course the bottles of beer the couple brewed themselves!  Talk about DIY!  From their doggy ring bearer, to the awesome food truck service to the amazing coordination by Nicole Audrey Events, I was just having the time of my life photographing this wedding.  It was such a smooth, laid back event, which is so rare for weddings these days.  And can I just say, the light at golden hour was perfect shining through the vineyards at Retzlaff Winery.  These two posed like models and I could have just kept shooting till it was completely dark!  Oh I could write a whole essay about this wedding, but from here I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story.  Enjoy!

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!

Katie and Ben's Country Style Engagement

I am so excited to share this engagement session with everyone!  As you could probably tell from my lack of blog posts, I've been on a bit of a hiatus with shoots.  But I'm back at it and ready for another wonderful year of love and laughter!  I couldn't have asked for a better way to start off the new year than with Katie and Ben.  Katie had the brilliant idea to do the shoot at her parents' property.  You couldn't tell from the pictures that this darling ranch is just tucked away right off the road in the foothills of east San Jose.  It's a gorgeous piece of land, complete with a barn, tractors, chickens and even donkeys!  A country girl at heart, Katie grew up raising and riding horses so it was only natural for them to incorporate that ranch feel into the engagement session.  Ben brought out his banjo too for the ultimate folk feel!  My favorite part of the shoot though was when we trekked down to the yellow mustard field and literally put a leather chair from the living room out in the flowers.  It made for some fun photos!  The ultimate cherry on top was having my husband shoot along side me.  He's still a photographer in training, but he's got the eye and shot some great photos.  Detail shots below compliment of Nick :-)   Thank you to Katie and Ben for such a great time!

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.
