Mr. & Mrs. Lucas - Bay Area Wedding Photography

Family.  If that's all I said, I'm positive that that would be enough.  Tina and Dave are amazing people who found love in each other that so few of us find.  Dave brings a level headedness to the game, and upon first meeting Tina, I could tell she brought the emotion - as she got goosebumps from excitement when we were talking about her wedding.

A beautiful wedding that took place at St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA, shortly followed by an awesome reception in San Ramon, CA.  The reception really kicked off when Tina's Jordanian family got their dance on, and man... they know how to bring the party!

Congratulations to you both, Tina and Dave.  I can't wait to see what the future holds for the both of you, and more importantly, shoot your Day After session.

A new son + rebranding + busy busy busy!

I have a new blog post from the amazing Tina and Dave's wedding in the works.  On top of that, I've been busy rebranding.  Woowoo!  Just a quick shout-out to BigFolio.  They're awesome.

New logo, new site, new jazz hands.  Wait... what?

Thanks for being patient, guys!

The Oceanside Bride feature!

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to the one, the only, The Oceanside Bride.  I contacted her not too long ago about Jeff and Nancy's Engagement shoot that Jehn and I did (followed just a few months later by their AMAZING Los Gatos out-door live-band wedding) and she featured it!  Check it out!

Click here to check it out!

On another side note, congrats to MRS. Oceanside Bride herself, as she was recently married.  Without question, the man she picked is quite the lucky guy!

Thanks again, Mrs. OSB.  Here's to wishing you and your hubby, as well as Jeff and Nancy, many, MANY happy years to come!

Maria & Vance - a truly cool mother and son duo - Bay Area Family Photography

Seriously... my meeting with Maria and Vance started out with a snake.  No joke.  A snake.  And a good sized one at that.  But we kept our eyes peeled, avoided the slithering animals, and had a wonderful time.  Our adventure at Santa Teresa Park then took a turn for the fedora.  Yes, a turn for the fedora.  Then a turn to some bicycles, a skateboard, some sunglasses, and a trip to Calero Reservoir for a sunset.  Could you ask for a better day?

Vance is a goofy kid, but goofy in a good way.  Not dorky.  He's funny, but carries with him the maturity not usually found in a 9 year old.  And Maria... she's just the mom you want.  The balance of love and good parents with just the right amount of coolness.  A pretty rare find these days, indeed. 

Befriending Maria and Vance has been such a pleasure, and I can't wait to see Vance grow up into a young man.  The love between Maria and Vance isn't at a normal level.  Not to sound like Yoda or anything, but the mother-son bond is strong with these two, and the amount of love overflows so heavily you can't help but be taken a back, even just a little bit, by it.

Meet Maria and Vance.
