Congrat's to Violet and Martin,

I met Violet about 6 months ago at a Bridal Fair and found out that we were related (cousins).    Somehow years ago our family separated and I never knew I had more family in the area (what a small world).
I ended up shooting her wedding and met lots of great, new family members.  Here is one of my favorite shots from the day:

Everyone have a wonderful Monday!

Cherise and Shawn were married last weekend on Saturday.  They had a great wedding and were both a lot of fun to work with.  The ceromony was at the Palmdale Estates in Fremont and the reception at the marriot in San Jose. The reception was fun, everyone was on the dance floor having a good time.
I am editing down the shots right now and here are a few good shots from the day:

All of the photo's will be online shortly at

Finally almost done with some remodeling of our place.  We have been working on different parts of the house ever since we moved in 2 years ago and are almost done with every room other than the kitchen which we have saved for last.  Hopefully within the next few months we will be able to get the  kitchen going, but for now I am done.  Here are a few shots of the new dining room with some new furnature we got :)

The last part for this room will be to replace the photo above the fireplace with a plasma TV and then the room can also be used to show proofs to our clients and slideshows of our work.  More updates to come soon.

Just finished putting up the first few pages of my wife's new business site 
She and a few partners are creating custom made jewelry and we just finished doing some quick product photography to get a small selection of images online for everyone to view.  They have a bunch of items that aren't shown on the site yet, I just need to get some extra time to take the photo's of all of thier products.  If anyone needs a gift for someone or is looking for bridal jewelry check out thier site for more Custom Jewelry

Super busy weekend, congrat's to Cherise and Shawn who were married on Saturday at the Palmdale Estates in Freemont.  The Palmdale estates is a beautiful property with 2 seperate places to get married and they have a nice pond and scenery for photo's.

Kate and Nate were married Sunday in Los Altos and had their reception at the Decathalon Club in Santa Clara.  The Decathalon club is a very nice workout club that also has weddings and events in thier main dining area.  The dining area is surrounded by windows on one side and an atrium with a stream and flowers on the other side.  It is very bright and has some really good natural light for photographs.

I will try to post some highligts later today for everyone to view.
