Love concurs all
Like many couples, Nick and Alexa started out 2020 full of hope and joy as they plan their dream wedding. Along came the pandemic altering every path of life. As each day the pandemic extends its spread, along with it goes the dream wedding. However, Alexa, Nick and their family did not allow the pandemic to defeat their spirits
Alexa and Nick originally planned to hold their wedding at the local venue called The Barn. Since they no longer do so, their families brought “The Barn” to them. Being avid woodworkers, Alexa’s grandpa and father partnered together to transform their backyard into a beautiful and intimate wedding venue. With just one month before the wedding, they gathered materials from local places some of which includes 100 years old wood beams.
Together the two constructed a small barn in their backyard made with only repurposed materials and weathered wood to keep the charming characteristics of a rustic barn.
Everyone in the family pitched in to help with every aspect of the wedding. It was a beautiful sight to see everyone from the different generations pulling together working in harmony towards a day of unity. Maybe it was the love that they had for Alexa and Nick that brought them all together. Perhaps it’s also the nostalgia of being in the house where they all grew up. Not one, two, but all 4 generations. Where every corner of the house is filled with memories and every part of the kitchen touched by laughter.
The house now contains yet another beautiful story, Alexa and Nicks wedding.
Amidst all the hectic of the preparation, Alexa and Nick did not forget to find time for each other. While everyone is still in preparation mode, they chose to exchange their vows in private. Even though Alexa and Nick were not able to have their wedding at their original venue, The owner was kind enough to allow them to have some private time and they were able to have some sunset photos.
2020 is an eventful year for the world and for Alexa and Nick as well. Nick finished his degree and graduated. Alexa and Nick are now married. They had purchased their own home. They have chosen forgo their honeymoon to invest in building their new house where they will build a family of their own and continue the family stories for many generations to come.
After 3 years, I met one of my favorite couples again Nick and Maria, they still had the energy from the very beginning when I took the engagement session for them in Lake Tahoe, still play around, making the joke and love each other day by day.
Our evening started off a bit rushed due to some travel delays, but I was so stoked to see that they could make it up for sunset!!
We started the session from the most famous Cypress Tree Tunnel in the world, Point Reyes, and end with Drake Beach where they can walk by the shoreline in the golden hour. I loved to watch Nick and Maria laugh with waves and sunset behind them. It was so romantic and so California. What a great way to celebrate 3 years of life, love, and happiness.
Your love, our passion!

We may forget about the Super Bowl between 49ers and Chief. We may forget how crazy it was about the cirque in the night performance. However, we knew it for sure we never forgot our lovely couple , Valeriemay and Matthew
Getting ready in the iconic landmark Fairmont hotel in San Jose,which is known around the world for their unique architecture, impressive decor, magnificent features.
This luxurious hotel boasts every attention to detail of any couple’s dreams. Soon after the preparation, waiting outside of the hotel entrance, an iconic touch of elegance luxury Rolls-Royce limousines . The couple arrived to Santa Clara church university in the greatest welcome from family and friend.
Their wedding day was truly breathtaking. The church itself was also known as the Historic Mission Santa Clara. Their combined devotion to the Christian faith and love for God makes them a match made in heaven! For this beautiful bride and groom, Vintage Church was a perfect oasis of charm in the heart of San Jose.
The couple chose the magnificent Palm Event center as their venue for the reception. I cannot say how many times I fall in love with this venue. The iconic palm trees extending the entrance highlight the couple even more in the sun of February. Though people usually look serious or elegance in the wedding, this wedding is a perfect combination of both. Guests and family both celebrated the Super Bowl and the wedding in the same time, making the wedding even more memorable.
The reception was filled with lots of activities and performance from the cirque. However, it was also fulfilled with silent moment and drowning in the emotion through stories in the speeches and the dance. Today, we honor the love of Valeriemay and Matthew. Through your wedding, you gave us a new vision of love and stories of your journey. We would like to thank you again for choosing us to be your wedding photographer. Your happiness is our passion.
