Here are a couple of images from Rhonda and Jamies wedding at Leal Vineyards
They have a beautiful master bedroom where the bride can get ready at and it can make for some really cool shots.  I love the tub they have in there and all of the decor look great.  Here are a few shots of Rhonda before she walked down the aisle.

Querido Mark, cada dia me siento mas orgullo de haberte conocido (aunque sea por internet) y no me sorprende de los maravillosos retratos que elaboras.  Excelentes, me encantan por la espontaneidad que tu le imprimes a cada uno de estos retrartos.  Estoy ansioso por ver los demas retratos de Rhonda y Jamies

Shooting weddings is such a gratifying thing.  You get to be with the bride and groom and their family all day long and experience they day as if you were a family member.  Always at the end of the day you feel so close to the family since you are such a huge part of capturing their day.  I always put so much of myself into my work and strive to capture amazing images of my clients days.  After the wedding it feels so good to have the bride shed a tear when viewing her images for the first time, I know I  did my job right when that happens.
Or to hear confirmation from my clients that they love my images as much as I do, that just feels so good.

Here are a couple of comments from my brides, that were emailed to our online host
I can't say enough about Mark (Stagi Imagery). He has a way of taking pictures that captures the personalities of his clients. His work with color is amazing and his artistic touches make your photos very unique. On top of that, he was quick to respond to any questions I had and got our wedding pictures to us within a few weeks. Not only does he blend in with the crowd, but he loves what he does and that comes through in his work. Mark and his assistant were a joy to work with and I highly recommend him as a wedding photographer (though I'm sure does great portraits as well) :
If you are looking for a GREAT photographer that captures every moment of your special day Mark Stagi is your man! His work truly unfolds like a story from beginning to end. His work fits the old cliche of "A picture is worth a thousand words" Thank you Mark =)
Mark is amazing - his pictures capture feeling as well as static images. He is a great guy to work with and we're SO excited to have him photograph our wedding!

THANK YOU to all of my great clients for having me as a part of your wonderful day!!!

Siempre se ha dicho que la mejor promocion es el oficio que uno hace con pasion, por eso los clientes se sienten agradecidos y lo externan o expresan por la via oral o escrita.  Porque eres una persona que trabajas con pasion, este se refleja en la alegria que le imprimes al trabajo realizado (en este caso tus imagenes o retratos fotograficos), como dice uno de tus clientes "una imagen dice que mas que mil palabras" y eso es lo que tu haces, llevar esos momentos memorables en el recuerdo para vivirlo siempre. Felicidades Mark.

I just finished up Issac and Jessie's wedding images, what a fun wedding!  One of the highlights of the day was driving in the trolley from the Carmel mission to the Monterey Plaza for the reception.  We took a few stops along the way and captured some great images.

First harvest of the year!  I have been trying to eat better and exercise lately so in the start of March I planted my first garden.  I just tried a bunch of stuff out and put in lots of tomatoes, some lettuce, arugula, zucchini, cucumber, onions, basil and parsley.  Once I got started I ran out of room quick and had to plant thing wherever I found space or some in large containers.  So far it is looking pretty good and yesterday we got to cut our first zucchini and had it for lunch, it was the best tasting zucchini!!!  It really amazes me how store bought stuff really looses a lot of the flavor since they don't pick it at the right time.  Anyways here is a shot with my and my first zucchini yesterday :)

Inspiring! If only I didn't kill every single plant I've ever had. Oh well, it's still worth a try to plant tomatoes. They're so expensive at the store (and not even delicious).
Posted 5/8/2007 at 3:18 PM by chunkielove
So jealous, hope it is yummy!

Yummy!!!  I lost all my peaches in a late freeze. :(  However, the tomatoes are protected in wall a waters and they look fabulous!  Good luck with your garden.  It's addicting. :)

Ok, I am now on a posting roll :)
Here is a shot from Issac and Jessies wedding in Carmel.
The wedding was at the Carmel mission which is such a beautiful place
to get married at.  Here is a shot I liked when they were leaving the church.
The wedding was such a blast and we captured some fun shots of the bride
and the groom along 17 mile drive after the wedding.  I will
post a few of those images later.

A few more and its time for me to end the day (my eyes are almost cross eyed)

Since Randy was harassing me on my last post for my slacking on the blog lately, here is a recent shot that I just finished.  Valerie and Josh are a wonderful couple that I have been able to photograph a few times now.  It was a beautiful day in Santa Cruz and they even got wet at the end of the day :)
I'll post more when I can but for now here is one image
