Our plans for a late afternoon of beautiful beach images were dashed AGAIN with the onset of more dreaded fog & wind. Fortunately, soon-to-be grads, Kelsey & Kaitlin took the news in stride and they delivered more than enough super poses and craziness to last the entire school year.
NBHS Senior, Sam Lucero, started off our 2015 graduation photos yesterday evening. Bringing her fav posse, Austin & Kelsey, we started at the firehouse for a little Nikon R&R, then added her family. Twenty minutes later, we slipped through the McC Bridge traffic jam for Round Two. By session’s end we were shrouded in fog and needed to make a fast break for the beach. Even with some fancy driving we could not find the sunset….so Empire Lakes became the final destination. Sam had her poses down, with a cute jean-jacket combo and her forever-smile I snapped the image. What a fun way to start 2015 grad photos..!!
Through the eyes of a photographer, this was a picture-perfect wedding day — so well-planned and such a wonderful romance…!!! Thank you to Tony & Kaitlin, plus their fantastic wedding party. Everyone was generous with their posing and spirit…!!!! Ciccareli’s lived up to their classy, elegant reputation and Violet C. was a bright smile throughout the day..!!! This wedding was another real pleasure to attend and photograph…!!!! More fun images coming……
The already elegant Ciccarelli’s is undergoing a temporary facelift today for Tony & Kaitlin Seets’ wedding day. Starting with a late night rehearsal dinner, the wedding party arrived early to begin the romantic transformation. And, WOW, what a celebration it was..!!! Stay tuned for more magical wedding images..!!
I think most folks would agree that one of the cutest vineyards in the Melrose Valley has to be Delfino Vineyards. Their cool logo, friendly tasting room and romantic setting says it all. Yesterday, the most fun-loving wedding party and guests joined the Hoofard’s for a solid day of love and celebration. Yes, Trevor & Stephanie were married in the middle of the grapes, sweltering heat and a million smiles. It was a day to remember and a love story that progressed between two states, California & Oregon. This beautiful couple will spend their honeymoon enjoying the Coast and making plans for an Italian getaway in the future.
I can’t remember Mingus Park ever being so beautiful as Jenny & Art graced the garden venue. We posed some fantastic groomsmen & playful bridesmaids, but when this couple was ready for their photos romantic sparks were everywhere. The Pilas/Smith charm was quite a combination to photograph…!! Their reception was different in so many ways..!!! Batman flew out of their cake, dinner was served at the end of the festivities and I have never seen Kat Hoppe run so fast, but I had a blast during the entire evening. What a great combination of friends, family and plenty of love..!!
