jacky + clarence engagement

Jacky and Clarence are getting married in San Francisco later this year. Since I had a trip up to Sacramento, they were kind enough to drive to Sacramento to have me take their engagement portraits. We decided to go to downtown Sacramento. Although I grew up in Sacramento, I have never shot portraits downtown. It’s always fun to try out a new location and as it turns out, there was no shortage of great spots within a couple block radius. I will definitely be looking forward to shooting more around that location again.

abby + stephen engagement

We had a great portrait session at Windansea Beach in La Jolla with Abby and Stephen. Stephen’s mother is owner of couple of great Chinese restaurants, Emerald Chinese Seafood Restaurant (one of my favorite locations for Dim Sum), and Pearl Chinese Cuisine, where Abby and Stephen will have their wedding reception later this year.

Needless to say, the wedding is going to have some great food!

kathleen + shannon

I’ve known Kathleen and Shannon for a while now, but they’ve never had any portraits done of just the two of them. So we decided to do a quick session in downtown San Diego.

molly + adam engagement

Molly and Adam showed up for their engagement session with a chess board. That was a first for me. But since they are both attorneys, it all made sense when they told me that everything in their relationship is a negotiation or like a chess match. I can only imagine.

We had a lot of fun at the Hotel Del, the beach, and then finally ending up a the new wine and chocolate bar at the Del.

Can’t wait until their wedding!

ryan’s bar mitzvah

Although I was busy photographing a wedding that day, my associate photographer, Pam, was available to capturing such a special day for Ryan and his family. As you can see she did an amazing job.

The ceremony was at the Temple Beth Israel in UTC. Then it was back to Ryan’s house for the party. Since Ryan is a very talented tennis player, it only made sense to have a tennis theme for the party. What a unique theme. Ryan’s mother, Kristen, along with the help of Jim Lennox at Pacific Events, did a fantastic job with all the details from the giant tennis balls hanging overhead, the tennis match tickets for place cards, to the tennis ball cupcakes.

Congratulations to Ryan and his family!

Here is a link to the slideshow.

paige + frank

I had the pleasure of photographing Paige’s older brother’s wedding a few years ago and now it was Paige’s turn. The ceremony and reception was held at her parent’s house in Rancho Santa Fe. Back when Paige’s brother had their reception there, their parents had just moved in to the house. Wow what an amazing transformation the house has gone through since then. The front and back yards were simply stunning. Paige’s mother, Maureen, did an amazing job setting the stage for an amazing wedding day.

Thanks to the help of Laura Rizzo of Weddings by Design, and the beautiful flowers by Isari Flower Studio, the wedding day went smoothly and the decor looked amazing.

To end the night, Frank got up on stage and performed a John Mayer song for his new wife. He did a great job performing in front of all the guests.
