What does a a beautiful venue, an adorable couple and fun Greenbay Packers theme make?  A fun and unique wedding!  Elizabeth and Jonathan are obviously fans of the green and gold and water to incorporate this part of their personality in their wedding day.  The sun was shining and warm, laughs and smiles were flowing and it truly was a fun day to be a part of.  There are a bunch of special details as well so be sure not to miss them!

  • Alex - Great storytelling photography! I love bride and groom portrait.

Julie and Matt are one of those couples that you just love right from the start.  Julie is outgoing and charming and lovely… Matt is her quiet and funny counterpart and once he’s comfy totally rocks the photos.  They married at Brentwood Golf Club in Brentwood, CA.  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing several weddings there always try to do something a little different each time.  Everyone at their wedding was SO nice… including the bridal party.  One of the groomsmen even helped rescue me from the huge pond after I slipped in to my knees and broke a sandal!  Yes, I slipped… Unfortunately there are no photos!  Take a peek of some of my favorite images from their beautiful day…

Here are some details about their day:

The Mountain Winery in Saratoga not only is an excellent venue for concerts but also for engagement sessions!  Jackie and Horia are wine club members here and frequent the concerts so they thought this would be the perfect location for their engagement photos.  Oh, I can’t forget, this was the place where they first said their “I love you!” This darling couple is so very much in love, energetic, kind, and loving to all their friends.  I instantly felt a connection with them and adored them from the start.  Our session went a little longer than standard because there were so many fantastic spots to photograph in but also they are just so darn easy to work with.  And beautiful!  Take a look at their session here and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Elizabeth and Jonathan are, quite possibly, one of the most adorably cuddly couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  And when I say I barely had to tell them what to do I mean it.  All I have to say is sit there and love each other and the above image is what I get.  Yes, I have to properly expose the camera, place them within the frame, and hit the shutter release at the just the right moment, but their smiles and expressions were the same the entire afternoon.  They genuinely love each other and love being with one another.  Each couple I meet reinforce why I love what I do in one way or another and these two did not disappoint.  I love “love” and Liz and Jon own it.  I hope you get a sense of what their session was like.  These are some of my favorites from our snow day!  Oh, and by the way, they are huge Green Bay Packers fans and wanted to pay homage in their photos.  Also, Murray, the most adorable and cherished pup, braved the cold and had fun himself!

Murray!

A little background… some lovely person left a snowman for us and it was Murray’s first time leaving a “mark!”  Mom and Dad thoroughly got a kick out of this as did I!

Beth and Nate are getting married later this spring and wanted their engagement session to be at a place they hold close to their hearts.  Rome Valley Vineyards is a quaint vineyard with an amazing view,  yummy wines, and a very Disney decor.  This sweet couple are wine club members here, and after they relaxed their nerves over a glass of wine (I had a few tastes myself) we had our photo fun.  Nate, just like a lot of guys, does not love his picture taken but I think you’ll agree he did an excellent job.  Beth was comfortable from the start and made my job very easy.  These two are so easy and comfortable with each other, very loving and laugh a lot.  I had such a great time getting to know them and am looking forward to their wedding next month.

  • BJ - Good Morning, I just received a call from a prospective bride, regarding the above pictures which she had found surfing the web. (I’m sorry, I’m not that good with computers and I had never seen these before.) Would it be possible to use some of these pictures as promotional pictures here at the vineyard? (With your water mark of course) I am always receiving inquires regarding photography’s and I really like these pictures. You truly captured the “love”.

    I would appreciate your consideration.

    Kind regards,
    BJ
