I love photographing short Wedding at SF City Hall because it is such a beautiful building with so many giant windows, so when Sherry called me to cover her big day with Ray, I was elated. Both of their parents unfortunately could not attend so they were represented by uncles and aunts and their sons and daugthers. They chose the Dome as their Wedding location and the ceremony was pretty quick, lasting 15 minutes at the most. Here are some of the images that I shot that day. I actually just booked 2 more Wedding at SF City Hall this year, so I will be coming back up in the Summer.
Mike and Lauren are both dedicated teachers who met in their Graduate School. They lived in Kazakhstan for a couple of years and traveled the world together. They are planning to get married in Saratoga Spring in 2016, because Lauren grew up in the Bay Area. Like almost every couple that I photographed, they were so nervous about the shoot. We talked prior the session and I gave them assurance that they can be themselves, in fact that’s what I really want them to do, because I’d like to capture who they really are. Seemed that my assurance was working because they were having fun and I only have to direct them very little in the 2 hours we were out. They had a great laugh and were feeling at ease during the entire shoot. Here are a few images from the 2 hour engagement session at Roaring Camp. We even managed to catch the beautiful sunset near the Santa Cruz marina.
Mike and Allison met while they were attending their University studying the Chemical Engineering which I think one of the toughest subject to master. They have chosen the intimate Pichetti Winery in Cupertino for their Wedding. Families and friends came from all over California and Nevada to participate in their Union. The Ceremony takes place at the back of the main house in the Winery. After which, the guests spent their time mingling at the front of the Winery at the cocktail hours. They didn’t have DJ but the wine are flowing. Instead of a Wedding cake, family members created a huge spread of home made deserts. .Here are some of my favorite images from their Wedding.

Leo and Jihye’s Wedding was my first Wedding in 2016 and my 4th Santa Clara Univerisy Mission Church Wedding. They got married at the beautiful Santa Clara University Mission Church where he went to school. The intimate Winter Wedding was attended by a small number of close friends and family who travelled from from as far as Canada and Korea. The reception was held at the Adobe located behind the church, a small and quaint location perfect for a small Wedding. Here are the images from their Wedding celebration.
