We began the day in a little oasis of calmness at the Omni Hotel of San Francisco. Cynthia was not nervous or anxious; she was ready.

Connie & Tony’s Wedding | Temple City & Alhambra, California

You might not see the silly side of them right away, poised as they are as the lawyer and the police officer.

Seaglass Cinema | World Premiere

Back in August, Seaglass Cinema was just an idea. We wanted to take a cinematic approach to capturing weddings and create ‘real life movies’. Our idea spun very quickly from possibility into reality, and just a couple weeks later, we gathered an arsenal of DSLRs and lenses and shot our first wedding in Indianapolis. Now,…

Zaha & Magdy | Pakistani Egyptian Wedding | San Jose Country Club

Magdy’s slightly mischievous laugh counterbalances Zaha’s reserved demeanor. We walk out to the golf course, led by the sinking sun.  Zaha looks beautiful no matter the outfit– Pakistani dress or white wedding gown. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful afternoon or a more compelling sunset as the backdrop to the event. 300 friends…

Kevin is the ultimate yes-sayer. He doesn’t doubt; he just makes things happen.

Kristina & Peter | Family Farm Wedding | Sebastopol Wedding Photography

Kristina & Peter | Family Farm Wedding | Sebastopol Wedding Photography

With her glowing smile and those stunning big brown eyes, Kristina is undeniably beautiful. But she has never been the princessy type. As her mother offered her glitzy jewelry options, she insistently declined. And she only reluctantly removed her sporty black watch when her friends decisively banned her from wearing it to the wedding. The…
