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…

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Turlock Country Club Wedding

Wedding couple kissing at CSU Stanislaus

Lauren and Josh tied the knot recently in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family at Sacred Heart Parish in Turlock, CA. Josh and Lauren are so cute together and very much in love, what a happy day. After the ceremony we headed to the always wonderful Turlock Country Club for the reception.  Lauren and Josh met while attending California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock so the school holds a special place in their hearts. Because of this close association with their relationship and the college we decided to do their formal pictures there too, a wonderful choice.

It was an honor being able to spend the day with Lauren and Josh, meet their great friends and family and have the opportunity to create the images of their beautiful wedding day. Now, on to designing the wedding album.

Here are a few of the images from their wedding day along with the highlight video. Enjoy!

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.
