Wedding at Sofitel in Redwood City

The bride was a maid of honor at a wedding I photographed some time ago. This time around, she is the bride and her best friend was her maid of honor.  In fact, this would be the fifth wedding I would have photographed within this circle of friends since that first wedding!

This time the ceremony was to be at Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City.  The forecast had called for rain, but we were fortunate enough to have some beautiful lighting and a very playful bunch of friends.  We took full advantage of it before the clouds started rolling in.

The mood was equally fun in the morning where everyone was there to prep her for the big day.  It was especially cute watching everyone help her into her dress!

I have to admit, I kind of “helped” the girls with this shot.  I just couldn’t help myself!

Because of the imminent signs of rain coming, we moved the ceremony indoors.  We had an intimate group of family and friends gathered to witness the two tie the knot.

I love this picture of Jaclyn and her dad before the ceremony – captured by my assistant Sarah

The fun continued at the reception where there were so many moments to capture.

There was a photo booth at the reception.  Everyone had a blast using it!

The night continued on with lots of dancing.  Everyone had a great time!

Congratulations to the newlyweds as they start their lives together as husband and wife.

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.
