The flowers are still blooming in Santa Cruz! Portrait & Wedding Photography

I just can't get enough of the beautiful fields of flowers. This only happens once a year and makes a great setting for a family photo or engagment shot. Taking pictures at sunset can only enhance the scene even more. This is Nicole and James. They are to be married on May 27th in Santa Cruz, California. 2007 Copyright A.K. Rowland Photography.

Congrats to Missy & Danny - Wedding Photography - Santa Cruz

Missy and Danny where married Saturday April 14th, 2007 at the beautiful Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz. I was a bit worried about the rain coming down because it was planned to be an outdoor ceremony. But luck was on our side by 3pm the clouds had cleared and the sun was shinning. It was a great day for a wedding. The following images are a few of my favorites for the day. Happy Honeymooning to Missy and Danny!
