Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Fresno wedding photography || Briana & Lee

June 5 was Briana and Lee’s wedding day. It wasn’t an ordinary wedding. Briana and Lee had waited years for this day to come and when the BIG DAY finally arrived, they couldn’t resist the emotions. They were excited, over joyed, ecstatic and at the same time they were floating in a pool of emotion. The day was here, and they made it through all the years have been together to make it to the big day!

The wedding took place at D&D ranch in Madera, CA, just 15 mins north of Fresno. I have to be honest, it was my kind of ranch – very eclectic, classy and refreshingly beautiful. I loved the open fields where you could see the blue sky and the tip of the mountains of the Yosemite valley. The ranch had a western themed area; we totally took advantage of it for photos. The couple took the dance floor to their first dance inside the red barn when the best man played their favorite song in guitar. Oh, and not to forget the burger bar!!! Who says you can’t have burgers at a wedding? I couldnt finish counting the topings for burgers!

Shooting Bri and Lee’s wedding was a unique experience for me. The bond each people in both the families share is beyond description. God is in their heart. They show the true meaning of love and relationship. It is a blessing to have such support from friends and families. I’m very excited for Briana and Lee and their fresh new chapter of life. Here are some images from their big day …

Roseville wedding photography || Katie & Sean

I don’t know where to start the story. They are beautiful people with beautiful smiles, full of life, they know how to have fun. They know how to dance, literally! One of them belong to a dance group. One of them is a firefighter for the City of Sacramento. They have awefully good looking people in their list of friends! They know how to LOVE; know how to show people they care. They LOVE their families, friends. They LOVED each other so much that they decided to make it official and tie the knot. They are Katie and Sean and this is about their wedding day.

I met Katie and Sean early last year for their wedding in May of this year. It seemed like a really long time at that time. But sitting here right now, I don’t know how all these months have passed and they are now married! It has really been an incredible experience for me to shoot Katie and Sean’s big day at the Morgan Creek Country and Golf Club last Saturday! First of all, Katie is an incredible person! I know her even better now after her wedding, and I have to say that Sean is a lucky man

And, so is Katie Sean is into sports. I saw the passion in his eyes when I went to shoot with the guys before the ceremony. When I was walking over to the bridge for his protraits, he asked me about Katie. The emotion on his face was priceless! He was so in love! He is a firefighter for the city of Sacramento which already tells a lot about his passion for life and the community.

I had an awesome time shooting with the girls. These girls knew how to work it, they were soooo much fun! It was super cold on Saturday (low 40’s) and very windy. But they kept the spirit up and I enjoyed shooting every moment with them. The night was still young when I left. The dancers were rocking the dance floor! The DJ played awesome dance mixes! And the cake was amazingly tasty!!! What can I say, it was a memorable night!

I’m incredibly happy for you, Katie and Sean! I don’t have appropriate words to express my feelings! Have a great time at the French Polynesia

White sandy beaches and the wild orchids await you!

Every man loves a nice pair of basketball shoes!

LOVE it!

Love those shoes!

Newcastle Wedding Gardens; Amanda + Tim

I have been blessed to have met so many wonderful people through the weddings I get to shoot. I know I sound like a broken record, but this is the the truth. And this is one of the reasons I LOVE weddings and think that I should quit everything else to become a full time wedding photographer. I left Amanda and Tim’s wedding (after their grand exit) thinking how lucky I was to know this awesome couple! Shooting becomes even more fun when we build that instant relationship with the couples. Amanda and Tim are a kind who you feel so comfortable talking to and hanging out with!

We had a blast on their engagement shoot last year. It seemed like May was so far off, but it arrived in no time. It did seem like the first day of Summer in the Newcastle wedding gardens. It was a warm and humid day. The location was gorgeous, no doubt. The barn, the willow trees and the beautiful garden made it a perfect setting for their wedding. The details were absolutely gorgeous. I loved Amanda and Tim’s cake toppers; cute birdies dressed in bride and groom! The vibrant color of the flowers were ahhhmaaazing!

I was singing along when the DJ played “Piano man” at the reception! I never heard anyone playing this song at a reception before. The guests were having a great time when Tim’s dad lead the crowd to dance with YMCA! Even the grandmas couldn’t stop dancing. I LOVED and enjoyed every moment there myself.

I was awed by the kindness of Tim, Amanda, her mom and pretty much rest of their families. The newlyweds were making their grand exit at the end of the night. While I was busy capturing their moments, I saw Amanda walking towards me and the next thing I got was a big, warm hug from her! My heart melted right away and I started to tear before I even realized. I am so happy for Amanda and Tim; they are such a sweet couple! I will miss receiving notes from Amanda every month, they made me smile every time I read them! I wish the couple the best of the bests and many, many years of blissful life together.

Here are some of my favorites from the day. Amanda looked amazing as you can see! Please leave some blog love and best wishes for the couple.

  • David McDougall: The small moments in time you have captured are stunning. I especially love the black and white shots and the clever use of the artificial light in the last two shots was pure genius.
  • OHAHA PHOTOGRAPHERS: beautiful shots of a gorgeous couple! i love love love the last few dance shots!
