Dante and MaryAnn’s wedding in Monterey

A beautiful bride, a handsome groom, a roomful of family and friends…and…Monterey. When you put these all together you get a fabulous wedding! Everything worked out perfectly. We were blessed with wonderful sunshine as we walked down Cannery Row to get some amazing shots of the bridal party.

We even walked into a random bar and started our own party!

Sarah and I started the day with MaryAnn and her bridesmaids all getting ready at the Monterey Plaza Hotel. It was the perfect setting with a clear view of the Pacific Ocean. The view speaks for itself.

While the bridal party was getting ready, Dante and his guys were in the lobby just having fun. They had a blast hanging out while they waited!

Once everyone was ready, we headed over to San Carlos Church for the ceremony. I found Dante sharing a quiet and special moment with his parents before the big walk down the aisle. Tradition played a major role in the ceremony, enhancing the beauty of the moment.

Afterwards, we went back to the Monterey Plaza Hotel for the reception. Dante and MaryAnn joined their guest during the cocktail hour. Then the bridal party made their entrance into the ballroom with pomp and circumstance!

It was wonderful to see all the traditional dances as Dante, MaryAnn, and their parents started the festivities. In the end, everyone got in on the action. A fun time was had by all!

If you have any questions please don''t hesitate to post them or send me an email. I'm always interested to hear what you think! Thanks for your support. Ten years ago, I left the mortgage and real estate business to pursue photography, which is a passion of mine. The mortgage business was excellent at that time but I was tired of it. I had a daughter that was just born and I wanted to do something that would allow me to spend more time with her and at the same time do what I wanted. I knew that I enjoyed people photography and soon discovered that I have a very real and special talent for it. I discovered that I was particularly good at capturing moments and revealing emotions through pictures. This came instinctively for me and allowed me to develop a style that was very comfortable for me to work in. My photography quickly became popular in the bay area and I've earned a large number of referral businesses as a result. In fact, i'd say I most of my business growth is the result of referrals from clients and online sites like Yelp. I currently have a studio in downtown San Jose and photograph weddings and portraits all over the bay area and California.
