I photographed a friend of mine's little one year old Gabriella last week and she is just  such a cutie.
Sometimes when I photograph kids it does really make me want to start a family, and she was just a little
angel.  I am editing the images right now and here is one that I thought was just precious.

Everyone have a great Friday!

She is darling!  I love her name, too--so elegant for such a wee one.  ;)

We just got back from WPPI and had such a  great time out there!  It was a really quick trip, but we got to hang out and connect with so many of our great photo friends out there.  It was also nice to see all of our vendors that we use and some new vendors we might be using for some very nice artistic albums, more on that to come soon!  We took a few photo's while we were out there so I will try to update the blog with them later.

WPPI is coming up around the corner.  We weren't planning on going but have had so many people asking if we were going to be there that I decided last minute to head out there for a few days.  It is always such a fun event, we are getting excited!  I hope to meet some of my blogreaders out there, if you are going send me an email and we can try to get together.  My schedule is getting pretty full already and we will only be there for a few days, but we can always get together for a little while for Coffee.

One of the most asked questions we get at weddings is what type of gear we shoot with.  Everyone always wants to know what type of equipment we use and recommend.  Here is our list of products we shoot with and recommend:

I am just loving the weather lately, today was another beautiful day nice and sunny and felt like mid to high 70's.  Today  I actually took most of the day off and did some yardwork which felt really good to be outside just enjoying the weather.  Yesterday was beautiful also and we had an engagement shoot up in the city.  I shoot a lot up in San Francisco but everytime I go up there I just get amazed by some of the beauty.  The city skyline, the golden gate bridge, the presedio are all so awesome to see, I feel very blessed to live in  Northern Ca and have so much beauty right in my backyard.

I hope everyone enjoyed this weekend, i'll post some images from our engagement session later in the week.
I shot Abby and Chris at a few locations up there and they are such a fun couple, I know there will be some great shots.

Is your wedding dress just sitting in your closet, collecting dust never to be looked at again?
Do you think you daughter will wear your dress in 30 years?  Probably not.
Why not bring the dress back out for one last photo shoot.  You know that you wanted to get some creative, fun shots on your wedding day but were too worried about getting dirty.  Now that the wedding is over bring the dress back out and have fun.  We can do a bridal shoot for you at any location, maybe you want to lay in the sand at the beach and get wet, anything is possible.  Check out this amazing site for some great examples:

The springtime is the perfect time to get these images done, contact us to setup a shoot.

Congrats to Dann and Daniela who were married last weekend in Aptos!
You guys are such a great couple and I was honored to be a part of your day.

One part of the wedding day that is always such an amazing part to witness is right after
the ceremony ends and the quick moment that the bride and groom  have alone.  Dann and Daniella
were just glowing as they exited the church and embraced each other.  It was so wonderful
to see the radiance coming from the two of them, they are a really cute couple.

Here are a few of the images from right after the ceremony:
