Congrats to James & Nicole- Wedding Photography Santa Cruz

Congrats to Nicole & James who were married in Santa Cruz May 27th,2007 at the Congregational Church in Soquel, one of the cutest churches in the Santa Cruz County. The follow are some of my favorite images from the day. I would say the wedding party had lots of personality.

Nicole looked stunning.
The Groom and Groomsmen all needed to get patted down to make sure someone had the rings

Just before walking in the church the guys made "concrete snow angels" in the church courtyard for good luck. A truly bonding experience.

Beck Family - Family Portrait Photography - Gilroy

Here is the Beck Family. Also known as the family of redheads. The Becks are close friends, in fact Steve was the officiant and wine consultant at my wedding. Steve works for one of the local wineries in the Gilroy area. His wife Sonya is actually one of the best wedding florists I know in the area. Her creations are truly eye candy(www.weddingsbysweetpea.com). The 3 little red headed monkeys are Parker on the left, and Emma and Alyssa which happen to be twins, but thank God they like to dress differently then one another so I can tell them apart. Emma is in gray and Alyssa is in green. This picture was taken in honor of Steve and Sonya's 10 year Wedding Anniversary coming up on May 25. Now that should be a good party!

Jenny and Tom - Santa Cruz - Engagment Photography

Congrats ato Jenny and Tom. They are to be married June 23,2007 at the Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz. Here is one of there engagement photos taken at Seabright Beach in Santa Cruz. I have posted the color and a black and white conversion of the same image. This is a great example of why color and black and white are both so very unique. The color image is so vivid, and the Black and white image is, in a word dramatic giving you a sense of mood.

Sweet Slumber - Newborn Photography

Here is Maren, 5 days old when this was shot. She is nesseled in a Large Hat box as she sleeps with out a care in the world. I was so excited to photograph little Maren, born May 4th. This is a great age to photograph a new born, anytime within the first 2-3 weeks of life. You can truly capture an unforgetable moment in time.
