Galas Barn Wedding

Galas Barn Wedding

Gricelda and Jesus are a wonderful couple with a tremendous group of loving friends and family. I had the pleasure of creating the images of their beautiful wedding day recently, and what a wonderful day it was.  Surrounded by their loved ones Gricelda and Jesus said “I do” at the beautiful St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Modesto, California before heading to Oakdale for their reception at the lovely Galas barn. I’m thrilled to have been a part of their day and I hope that shows in the images. Speaking of which, I hope you enjoy a few of the preview images and debut slideshow.

A few images from the day…

Hughson High Class of 2018

Hughson High Class of 2018

It’s September which means senior portraits are in full swing. Ethan will be graduating from Hughson high this coming June, class of 2018, and stopped by recently for his senior portraits.  After meeting with Ethan and his mom for a consultation we decided an outdoor session was the way to go and headed out to one of my favorite local spots. We had a lot of fun during the session, Ethan and his family are wonderful, fun, happy and an overall pleasure to work with. To make the session even better we had some wonderful light. You can’t ask for more. Good luck to Ethan on the rest of his senior year and the journey he’s about to begin.

Here are a few images from Ethan’s senior portrait session. I hope you enjoy.

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Nicole and Chris are a very special couple. It doesn’t take much time spent with them to see the respect and love they have for one another. In fact, respect, love and joy seems to shine through everything they do. I had the great pleasure of photographing their wonderful wedding at the beautiful Turlock Country Club recently. Chris and Nicole said their vows outdoors in a lovely ceremony surrounded by friends and family before celebrating the evening away at their awesome reception. It was a joy and honor to create the images of their wedding day and share in their happiness while in the company of the people that mean the most to them. Congratulations, Nicole and Chris!

Here is the highlight slideshow from Chris and Nicole’s wedding day.

Turlock Senior Portraits

Turlock Senior Portraits

 

I’m very fortune to work with wonderful families and have the opportunity to photograph each member when it’s time for their senior portraits. This is the case with the Jurevich family, I photographed Brandon a few years ago and recently his sister Ashlee stopped by for her senior portrait session as well. We headed out to one of my favorite local outdoor portrait locations for the session and was greeted by not only wonderful weather but some amazing wildflowers too. Ashlee was wonderful to photograph and work with, we had a great time during the session and came away with some beautiful images. Perfect wall portraits for mom and dad’s home and office. Ashlee be graduating from Turlock high school soon and will be on to big things in her future.

Here are a few images from Ashlee’s senior picture session. I hope you enjoy them.

Knights Ferry Portraits

Knights Ferry Portraits

Adriana will be celebrating her quinceanera at the end of May with an awesome party but stopped by a few days ago for her pre-quinceanera portrait session in Knights Ferry. While Knights Ferry portraits are usually known for their brown and tan tones due to the usually dry grass there are a few weeks each spring when the area is covered in green and littered with beautiful wildflowers. We hit it perfectly, the wild lupine lighting up with it’s deep purple color against the green grass was stunning.

The session was a lot of fun, Adriana was great to work with and we came away with a lot of stunning images; perfect wall art for Mom and Dad’s home to celebrate Adriana’s milestone. I’ve included a few images from the session. I hope you enjoy them.

State Theater Engagement Portraits

State Theater Engagement Portraits

Cameron asked Kody to marry him outside the historic State theater in Modesto, California last December after a seasonal showing of “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Their wonderful engagement story created a special place in their hearts for the theater and sets the scene for their engagement portraits. The State Theater was kind enough to put Kody and Cameron’s name in lights for our state theater engagement portraits session, which made the night extra special. The session was fun, minus me almost getting hit by a car or two while standing in the street to make the images. Congratulations to the happy couple and I can’t wait for their wedding in December.

Here are a few images from the session, hope you enjoy.

San Francisco Senior Portraits

San Francisco Senior Portraits

I’ve known Elyce for what seems like forever (she’s one of my cousin’s best friends), so I was thrilled when she called to tell me she wanted to schedule a session for her senior concert (she’s a music major). I was even happier when she told me she wanted to go to the wonderful Legion of Honor in San Francisco, one of my favorite places in the city, for her session.

The beautiful architecture of the Legion of Honor building is the perfect compliment to the style of portraits Elyce wanted for the promotional images that would be used for her concert. In addition to the formal concert images, we also used the surrounding grounds for some more traditional San Francisco senior portraits. I had a great time hanging out with Elyce and her “crew”, who made sure everything was perfect. I love the images we made during our day in San Francisco, Elyce has grown to be a beautiful young woman and I can’t wait to see her rock the stage during her senior concert.

Here’s a few images from the session, hope you enjoy them!

Almond Blossom Portraits

Almond Blooms Portraits

Almond blossom portraits are some of my favorite to do, the blossom themselves are beautiful and because we have 20 acres of almonds we don’t have to travel far for the session, winner! Karissa came by for her senior pictures recently and wanted, you guessed it, almond blossom portraits so we headed out to the trees and went to work. The day was perfect, the sun was warm and the blooms were popping nicely. Karissa is involved with FFA, something near and dear to my heart, and while she didn’t have her pig yet when we did the session (bummer) she did have her jacket,  FFA friend and very large family dog to represent during the session. It was a fun afternoon and the images look great. Here area  few samples from the session. Hope you enjoy.

Turlock Maternity Portraits

Turlock Maternity Portraits

I had the awesome chance to photograph Erica and Candido’s maternity session recently at the always beautiful (even in the rain), Pageo Lavender Farm in Turlock, California. Erica and Candido are a very special couple and I’ve had the pleasure of creating images for them through all of their special moments the last number of years, from senior pictures to their wedding and now the soon-to-be of their little one, Regina. I can’t wait to meet her as she is sure to be as wonderful as her parents and extended family. For the maternity session we were greeted with a bit of weather, gray clouds and overall damp conditions as it’s been a very wet winter here in California. We made the most of it however, as Pageo Lavender Farm has many wonderful places to work. Below are a few of the images from our maternity session and the highlight slideshow. I hope you enjoy them.
