Janet & Forrest Wedding Photography - June 7, 2008

Last week I went to shoot Janet and Forrest wedding day.
As you might know Janet and Forrest are the clients in the video I have:

Janet was a beautiful bride, she did not stop smiling all day long! Even when I asked her to do a "serious" shot she still smiled... :)
Forrest - wow - he was a treat! When I arrived to their home, early in the morning, he asked me if I want to eat something - he said he will cook... I had a lot of work ahead of me so I was forced to decline his great offer.
Both Janet and Forrest were very cooperative with any photo ideas I had in mind, although the time was running short on us we still got some amazing shots!
After Janet & Forrest were ready - we took of in the limo and headed to Stanford, we spent 10 minutes there since Janet was worried that we might get late to the reception, so we wrapped things up and --- off we go to the reception.
The ceremony site was absolutly amazing, this was the first time I shot there, and I'm happy I booked another wedding to the same location: Crystal Springs Golf course in Burlingame.
The Reception was held at the Empress of China, located in China Town - San Francisco. It was a traditional Chinese Banquet with 10 course dinner - Wow WOW Wow what a great food! and a thrilling lion dance.
I am grateful for having wonderful clients like Janet and Forrest!

And here is a preview of some of my favorites shots:

Ponti & Mathew wedding May 25, 2008.

Two weeks ago I had the honor of taking the photos for Ponti and Mathew's wedding.
The Ceremony took place in the amazing Ainsley house, The weather was perfect - it was warm and there was a great over cast - simply perfect for pictures.
The reception took place in down town Sunnyvale at The Del Monte Restaurant.
Ponti was very calm and happy, I was impressed, we went to FAUX to do the make up, and she simply shined.
Mathew arrived to the Ainsley house and we had a lot of fun taking photos for the man.
It was simply a great day!

Christina & Steven's wedding April 12, 2008

It took me a while to upload a flash gallery to my website, but I have to tell you - I love it :)
Working with Christina & Steven was a blast! Christina laughed all the time, she was so happy to do anything I suggested... just before the ceremony we went to Central Park in Santa Clara, and downtown San Jose. We did a lot of fun shots - it was so cool!!!
The ceremony took place in Assumption Of Mary Catholic Church.
The reception took place in Del Monte Restaurant in Downtown Sunnyvale. 
I enjoyed every moment with Christina and Steven - Thank you!!!
