Saratoga Springs wedding in the woods, Nick and Annalesa

Hidden in the Redwoods of the bay area’s oldest picnic facility is a gem called the Saratoga Springs.  This is where Nick and Annalesa married last month and I was grateful to document their perfect wedding day. From getting ready in the silicon valley near the headquarters of Apple, we traveled through the popular hwy 9 road into this nestled area of the forest where friends and family gathered to celebrate and party the night away. Nick and Annalesa had meaningful chemistry, a great history together, and a special group of people who toasted to their richness.  As the evening continued, they share delicious custom homemade ice-cream sandwiches and then spent their energy busting moves on the dance floor.  Here are a few images from Anna and Nick’s special day and congratulations to the both of them.

Palo Alto Wedding Photographer – Marcus and Helen

Stanford University / Palo Alto Wedding Photographer
Four Season Hotel Wedding Photography

Another gorgeous wedding in the Silicon Valley, Palo Alto, California.  Marcus and Helen planned their elegant and classy wedding well!  I enjoyed traveling from the Four Seasons Hotel where they were getting ready, then to the prestigious Stanford University, then to the beautiful vintage church downtown for the ceremony, and then back to the Hotel for their wedding reception.  When we arrived at Stanford University, I felt smarter just pulling into the driveway entrance alone.  Marcus and Helen allowed us freedom and time to photograph them together before the ceremony (they did the first look), along with the wedding party.  Typically I post images on my blog that were directed in some fashion and don’t show off more the photo-journalistic images.  Here I have posted some near the bottom to let others see the off moments as well.  What a pleasant time, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to join them on their wedding day celebration.  Cheers to the both of them!
