McCharles House Wedding

November 29, 2009

This was my first time photographing a McCharles House Wedding and it was awesome! McCharles House is an intimate, quiet and small wedding venue on the grounds of a beautiful and very authentic Victorian House in Tustin. It even has the Disney wedding gazebo in the back yard! This is a great venue if you want a small intimate wedding and even better if your a fan of the Victorian era or Disney.

Not only was McCharles house a great place for a wedding but the other vendors were excellent. Jay’s catering has to be one of the best wedding meals I’ve ever had and DJ Dave Greenwood was perfect at setting the mood.

Gail and Jorge and their family and friends were great to work with! Jorge was a little uncomfortable in front of the camera at first but as the day went on he opened up and we got some great pictures! Check em out!

Karina and Chris had their wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara. Thanks to my friend Scott I got to be there to help him photograph it. It was a beautiful day despite a little rain in the morning. It always seems to clear up right before the ceremony and this day was to exception! It was a great outdoor ceremony and perfect for some infrared wedding photography! Check out the pictures!

Hamilton Ballroom Wedding

November 28, 2009

What a fun wedding and an awesome day! Bethany and Brian had there 1930’s stlye wedding in San Francisco and the day brought us all over town! We started at the Hotel Bijou and did some cool candid photography of the girls getting ready. Then we did some really fun shots in the lobby’s movie theater. From there it was of to the Sunset for the church ceremony at Saint John of God. There was just enough sunlight coming through the windows to allow for some infrared photography! After the ceremony it was off to the Hamilton Ballroom for their wedding reception. The Hamilton is an awesome building that has maintained it’s Art Deco charm. When the wedding reception at the Hamilton Ballroom was over Bethany and Brian still wanted to do more pictures so we headed off to the Palace of Fine Arts with the bridal party in tow to do some night time wedding photography. Check it out!

Mountain Terrace Wedding

November 28, 2009

The other day I got to photograph a Mountain Terrace wedding with my friend Ken Buck. Ken is a Bay Area Wedding Photographer, fellow Brooks Institute grad and really cool dude that I work with from time to time.

We started at Stanford University where the bride and groom first met. We did tons of cool pictures of the bride, groom and their family on the campus grounds including a shot that mimicked one taken of the bride’s parents thirty five years earlier. The bride’s mom and dad also met while attending Stanford University in the 1970’s and had some of their wedding pictures on the campus too.

After getting together at Stanford University we headed to Mountain Terrace in Woodside for the ceremony and reception. This was my first Mountain Terrace Wedding and I loved it. Mountain Terrace is a beautiful venue that is somewhat off the beaten path and very well ran.

Check out the pictures!

Canary Hotel Wedding

November 9, 2009

A couple weeks ago I got to help my friend Andrew photograph Claudia and Ryan’s wedding at the Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara, California. It was a small very small intimate wedding but we got tons of awesome pictures all over Santa Barbara. Claudia and Ryan rented a beautiful house for the weekend up in the San Roque area in the Santa Barbara foothills and that is where we started. From there we went to Butterfly Beach in front of the Montecito Biltmore Hotel and then to the Santa Barbara courthouse for more pictures. The wedding ceremony and reception were on the roof top of the Canary Hotel where the view was spectacular and even included a Santa Barbara sunset.
