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 ceremony and reception location of 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 Picchetti Winery Wedding.

Leo and Jihye’s Wedding was my first Wedding in 2016 and my 4th Santa Clara University 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 members 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. If you have any questions, you can contact me directly via my website at www.harrywhophotography.com.
Arnel and Maria are high school sweethearts. They met in High School and they will be married in San Jose in May 2015. For their Engagement Session, they wanted to have a 50s Theme Fun Engagement Shoot so we searched for Diner that is quiet so we can shoot the Engagement Session during the day. We found the diner in Los Gatos where the owner were nice enough to use their restaurant. After the shoot, we headed out to the Lake Vasona and they brought their pet along with them. Since it is in the middle of fall, the rain was plentiful and the Lake cannot be more beautiful. It was so lush with green vegetation, perfect for the background of their intimate Engagement Session. These pictures will go into their custom signing book that I will design for their Wedding. Congratulations Arnel and Maria.
I have known Michelle for a few years, so when she contacted me for a family shoot in Alameda, I jumped on the opportunity. Her one year old boy was a joy to photograph. They brought along the photogenic and mild manner dog to the shoot which is fantastic. I love animals.:) We started the photo session at her house and then we moved on to the marina which is close by. Luckily the weather is cooperating that day, because the marina is notorious for its strong wind. So here are the cute images from the session.
