We often get questions from brides who had someone else photograph their wedding and saw the albums that we created for friends of theirs.  A lot of times their photographer can't create a wedding album for them, so they are looking to have someone else design the album.  We can help any bride out with their album design provided you have the digital negatives and a release from the photographer.  If you want more information on our album design services check out our album website:

Magazine Style Wedding Albums

Also if you are a photographer and don't want to deal with the design, we do offer custom made album
designs (from scratch, no templates), so if you want to create these types of albums for your clients but don't have the technical expertise just let us know.  Photographers information for albums

Albums are always extremely fun to create and very creative, I should be finishing up our last wedding album from our december 30th wedding soon and will post for everyone to see.

Have a great week,
-- Mark

We had a fun engagement session yesterday at the beach in Monterey.  Lauren and James are such a cute couple and even though it was raining most of the session they were great sports and never let it bother them.  The funny thing is Lauren's cousin was married last year and we photographed their engagement session and wedding and it rained at their engagement session at the beach also.  I know there will be some great images of them and will post them later this week.

Awesome images!  What a gorgeous church, reception hall and outdoor locations you had to shoot at.  She was a lucky bride for sure!  I love the background on those last few shots that was lit up all in blue.  I've never seen any place like that before.  And those waterfalls...amazing!  Nice job.

I saw you stopped by my site...thanks.  Your photography is gorgeous!  I love the 2nd place winner.  I am always jealous of you "beach photographers" ....I am totally land-locked where I live.

We are so excited to have been honored with 3 awards from last nights Year End Print comp at the Professional Photographer of Santa Clara Valley meeting.

Our meeting last night was a normal meeting and then our year end print comp at the end.  For the meeting we had Gene Higa come in to talk about destination weddings.  He had some pretty incredible images from all over the world (Greece, India, Thailand just to name a few)  It was a great presentation and really makes me want to jump on a plane right now and check out a new country like the Philippines.

Check out his blog here to see more of his work!

At our print comp I was honored to take home these following awards:

3rd place for environmental portrait was from Andrea and Randy's engagment

2nd place environmental portrait was from Matt and Asia's engagment session:

and 1st place for environmental portrait was Renaldo and Lupe engagment:

I was very excited to take home 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for this category,
there were some great images and lots of great photographers that submitted entries.

congratulations! my favorite is the 2nd place. i like the 1st place as well, but matt & asia's image has so much appeal to me because of the colors and hues. it is coordinated and perfectly balanced.

ryc: i know that image would look better cropped closer as the guys standing don't add anything with the exception that they are in the image. i should be going for impact on my blog, but i decided to get a few extra kids in the image for them to see. decisions decisions! thanks for the input!

These are beautiful. Congratulations on your awards. I like your 2nd place shot the best. The lighting is amazing, the composition and colors really appeal to me. I love the pop of intrest that the moss on the rocks gives this image. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I always appreciate feedback from great photographers.

Aloha, Great work!  My favorite is also the second one, the composition is beautiful!

They were such a cute couple to photograph, we are almost done processing all of the images and I will share some as I finish them over the next few days.  They make such a cute couple and were smilling all day long. 

Here is a shot I thought was great of Darryl with his cool shades on, I need to find out where he got these and pick up a pair, it makes him look like a superstar!

And here is Darryl's beautiful bride:

More to come later,

We photographed Darryl and Loveleen's wedding last weekend and you guys were such a great couple to work with.  Thank you for having us be a part of your day, you guys are such a cute couple and we wish you the very best! I'll post some images as I work on them this week.

Hey Mark,

 Sorry to bother you with this, I was wondering if I could get a little help. I purchased Gary Fongs album showcase to show album designs on the xanga site. I see you do slide shows on your site. I cannot figure out how to get them on my xanga site. If you have any tips or could help me that would be great. Thanks
