Kimberly and Dominic were married at the Marin Art and Garden Center, which is a gorgeous spot in the North Bay in a tiny town called Ross. Just look at their sunset portraits and you’ll see what a truly cared for and special place it is.Read More
Kristen and Chris got married at one of our favorite Oakland hills wedding venues, Piedmont Community Hall. We've photographed a number of weddings here, and we love it for a few reasons: the ceremony site surrounded by old redwoods feels hidden and intimate, the courtyard makes for the perfect outdoor dining spot, and the hall is not your typical community hall but has beautiful architecture with floor to ceiling windows and wooden beams.Read More
Remember Jimmy and Reshma and their double engagement sessions? Here they are again on their wedding day! This was Adm's first wedding back after recovering from back surgery, so I was a little nervous going in, but he did wonderfully and his back seems to be holding up well. We can't say enough good things about Reshma and Jimmy and their families - I've known Jimmy since my days at the Oakland Tribune (he's the sports reporter and we followed an amazing basketball season at McClymonds High School for a few months together), and I got to know Reshma pretty well after taking lots of photos of her for the e-sessions. She is just so sweet and considerate - never have I had a bride more concerned with how I was being taken care of on the day of her wedding: she was constantly asking if I needed anything to eat, will I toast with her girls, will Adm and I stay to party with them afterwards....? It's obvious that this is how these two were raised because both of their families were also incredibly nice and attentive to us. At any rate, I could gush for hours about Reshma and Jimmy, so let's move on to their wedding!
Both Jimmy and Reshma got ready in their parents' homes, which felt very intimate and allowed for lots of personal moments and details. They were married at Jimmy's family's church, St. Clements Catholic Church, in Hayward, and had their reception at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton. It's obvious that friends and family are very important to these two as they were surrounded by so many wonderful people all day long and had lots of really nice moments with their friends. Congrats, you two! You guys rock!
