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.

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.

Diablo Grande Wedding

Diablo Grande Wedding

It’s always a wonderful day when I can spend it with wonderful people, which means Lesley and Brice’s wedding was a spectacular one! Lesley and Brice both have truly great friends and family that are kind and fun to be around, it’s easy to see why the bride and groom are so cool 🙂 .  The couple was married in Sacred Heart Church in Patterson, California before heading to Diablo Grand Golf and Country Club, which was the setting for the reception and also where the pre-wedding festivities of getting ready took place. It’s a wonderful venue and made the perfect backdrop for Lesley and Brice’s big day.  It was such pleasure getting to create the images of their big day, I’m honored to have had the opportunity. Congratulations, Brice and Lesley!

Pageo Lavender Farm Wedding

Pageo Lavender Farm Wedding

Mayra and Clint were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at one of the central valley’s best locations, Pageo Lavender Farm, in Turlock.  It was a wonderful day, made all the better by the wonderful friends and family that joined the new Mr. and Mrs. Autler in celebrating their wedding day.  I am so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to create the images that will be cherished for a lifetime and meet everyone that is so special to both Mayra and Clint. They are a close knit and loving group of people and it shows in not only the images but also the feeling that surrounded the entire day. Speaking of which, the day was perfect and I’m thrilled to share a few of the images and the highlight slideshow here on the blog. I hope you enjoy and congratulations to the happy couple!

Vista Ranch Wedding | Merced, California

Monica and Miguel we’re married in a beautiful church ceremony at Our Lady of Mercy in Merced, California, right in the heart of the Central Valley. Surrounded by their friends and family, it was a wonderful afternoon and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to not only see them be joined together but also to create the images of their wedding day. After the ceremony we headed to the stunning Vista Ranch and Cellars, what an amazing location for a reception. It was a great party filled with wonderful people (it’s easy to see why Monica and Miguel are the great people they are), good food and even a caricature artist! What fun! Below are a few images from the day and the highlight slideshow. I hope you enjoy and congratulation to Mr. and Mrs. Silva!

Diablo Grande Wedding

intro

Krystal and Vitaly tied the knot a few weeks ago in a beautiful ceremony and reception at the always wonderful Diablo Grande Golf and Country Club in Patterson, California. I had the pleasure of creating the images for their wedding day and I’m so glad I did. It was such a joy to spend the occasion with new Mr. and Mrs. Polovin while also having the chance to meet their friends and family, it’s always special getting to see what makes each couple the people they are and why they work so well together. It was a great day, Krystal was stunning, Vitaly was cool, and everyone involved was was kind and fun. Congratulations to the happy couple!
