Paige & Rusty’s Family Photos

Almost two years ago we had the pleasure of photographing Paige and Rusty’s wedding at the San Francisco Golf Club. Our photographic story of their life continues with the following photos. Represented in the photos are four generations. It was their daughter’s first birthday and Paige’s grandmother’s 80th birthday.

Catherine & Todd’s Wedding

7 . 7 . 7. — That was definitely one of the most popular wedding dates for 2007 and couples planned way in advance to make sure they secured all of their vendors for this date! Catherine and Todd’s gorgeous wedding was held at Meadowood Napa Valley in St. Helena.

Catherine’s choice for her wedding gown was well thought out; the long flowing train was beautiful and functional as well in that it was removable.

Ira & Elaine’s 60th Wedding Anniversary!

Traveling from Florida, Ira and Elaine met up with their children and grandchildren to celebrate this happy milestone in their lives at Silverado Resort in Napa. The seeds for this family were planted 60 years ago when Ira and Elaine were married. Here they are at their reception at the grand Waldorf Astoria in New York! This is a sampling of a few of our favorites starting with a photo taken on their wedding day.

Ira and Elaine with their children, Rich, Larry and Carol. We really enjoy doing these multi-generation family portraits starting with the couple’s grown children and then including a variety of individual family groups, individual photos of all in the family as well as the whole family together.

A fun portrait of the grandkids, Josh, Robyn, Julia and Sophia.

Summer & David’s Elopement

MacArthur Place in Sonoma was the venue that Summer and David chose for their destination wedding. This place is incredible and has garden spa suites that are really luxurious.

There are a lot of really unique sculptures, etc. all over. I love this cool weather vane.

Here they are walking towards the ceremony site making sure that they had the ring boxes.

The ceremony took place in this lovely little garden, which is by the Koi Pond. Rev. Peadar Dalton of Your Ceremony Matters officiated.

During the ceremony, Rev. Dalton directed Summer and David to hold each other’s ring over their heart, prior to exchanging rings.

A short distance away, what else? Chess. David decided that they should be the King and Queen. I love how they just blend in and look so stoic.

Same place, within a a minute or so of the previous shot only this time with more dramatic use of light for a more romantic feeling.
