Class of 2018 Senior

Class of 2018 Senior

Class of 2018 senior, David came by the studio a few days ago for his senior portrait session. David’s a busy dude, with school and football practice every day and soccer right around the corner, we decided an indoor session was the way to go for some awesome senior portraits. The session was fun, David a great young man and photographs very well, always a bonus. It was great working with him, chatting and getting to know him a little bit. I wish David all the best the rest of his senior year. Go Huskies!

Here are a few images from David’s senior portrait session. 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!

Mayra and Clinton – Wall Art

wall art display of engaged couple on bedroom wall

I don’t think anything truly makes a house into a home like portraits of the ones you love. Surrounding yourself with portrait wall art of those you love brings a smile to your face each time you walk into the room. Here are a pair of wall art displays of Mayra and Clinton from their recent engagement session.  They are a cute couple and we had a great time hanging out with their puppies and checking out the “gun show”.  They have a mutual affection for both each other and firearms so we worked a couple awesome riffles into the session. A big thank you to Bloomingcamp Ranch in Oakdale for the perfect setting for the engagement session. I’ll have more images from the day soon.
