Abigail + Stephen Wedding [North Valley Baptist Church] by Charlie Kaine

It was a unique experience to be able to shoot a wedding at the same venue two weeks in a row; the previous week I shot Naomi & Ron's wedding at the North Valley Baptist Church.  The church family there was very welcoming and helped me out with everything I needed.

I first met Abigail & Stephen during their Engagement Session back in February.  I got to know them very well and I saw right away the loving and spiritual connection that they had.  Back then they were living hours apart and Abigail was still in school.  It is awesome to now see them married and living out the vision that God has for them both.

Thank you to the Baumgartner & Elizondo families for raising two amazing people and for allowing me the honor of photographing this special day!

Naomi + Ron Wedding [North Valley Baptist Church] by Charlie Kaine

What a pleasure it was to start off the summer by photographing this lovely couple.  The wedding took place at the North Valley Baptist Church, which is an amazing facility.  Pastor Jack Trieber led a beautiful service in front of hundreds of family and friends.Ron is as tough as tough a guy as any I know, but when Naomi came walking down the aisle even he couldn't hold back his emotions.

It was a pleasure getting to know them from the time we first spoke on the phone, to the time we met in person at Stanford University for the photos, and now seeing them as a married couple.  Their future is bright and their love for God and one another deep.  I'm honored to have been chosen as their photographer for one of the biggest days in their life.

Ari + Raul Wedding [Miners Foundry] by Charlie Kaine

I was first introduced to Ari & Raul from our good friends and neighbors (The Lopez') who are related to them.  They told me they saw my previous work and were impressed.  We met up shortly after that to discuss their wedding plans and hit it off instantly.  They are such a great couple to be around and both come from some great families.

The Miners Foundry was an amazing place to shoot their wedding and the weather couldn't have been more perfect than it already was.  It was great getting to know both the Contreras and Martinez family; they made me feel like I was part of their already big family.

Ari was a natural in front of the camera, and Raul always had a smile on his face just looking at Ari.  And as if the wedding reception wasn't already romantic, there was a surprise engagement that happened right after the bouquet toss;  I'm glad I was in perfect position to capture that!  So I guess there will be another wedding coming up soon, stay tuned :)

Faith + Frobie Wedding [Crystal Springs Golf Course] by Charlie Kaine

My wife and I first sat down with Faith & Frobie at a nice Mexican restaurant one afternoon and instantly hit it off.  It was obvious to see their love for one another, and how perfect they were for each other.  Their story is one of perseverance and faithfulness to God.

When we arrived at the Crystal Springs Golf Course for the wedding, the weather could not have been more perfect!  The views from the golf course were magnificent; I can't recommend this venue enough.

Thank you Faith & Frobie for choosing me to capture these memories that will last forever!

Roy + Chen-chen Wedding [Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa] by Charlie Kaine

I truly had a blast photographing Roy & Chen-chen's wedding at the beautiful Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa.  The weather could not be any perfect, and the views stretched out for miles.  When you see those two together, you know that they were meant to be.  

Chen-chen was an absolute natural in front of the camera, nailing every pose on the first try.  A truly stunning bride inside and out, and it was a joy photographing her.

One of my favorite moments was Roy dancing with his daughters and granddaughters.  It was a special moment that they shared and we got to all witness.

It was an honor to be chosen as their wedding photographer, and look forward to continuing the friendship that we were able to build during the whole process.

Byron + Lauren Wedding [Woodminster Cascade] by Charlie Kaine

Some say that it is good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but tell that to the bride who has planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony.  We prayed for a miracle, and a miracle indeed came through.  The skies cleared up about an hour before the start of the ceremony, and the rain fall resumed after we all made it indoors for the reception.

Byron and Lauren are an amazing couple, and it was an honor to be chosen as their wedding photographer.  My wife and I got to know them on a much deeper level as we hung out preparing for the wedding.  I wish them a prosperous life and a fruitful marriage that stands the test of time.

Andrew + Maissa Engagement [Mountain Winery] by Charlie Kaine

My wife and I have been close friends with Maissa and Andrew for over a decade now.  We've literally known them since they were in High School.  Andrew and I were roommates back in my single days in San Jose.  I've seen them start dating, break up, and start dating again.

To see them engaged and getting ready for their wedding day really melts my heart.  When you see two people, obviously meant for each other, you want nothing but the best for them.  It was truly an honor to be able to shoot their engagement photos at the lovely Mountain Winery in Saratoga.  This was the first wedding that I absolutely did not want to be the wedding day photographer for; I will instead be one of the groomsmen, and to me that is much more important.

Congratulations to Andrew & Maissa, may your love for each other grow everyday!

Nate + Audrey Wedding [Huddart Park] by Charlie Kaine

It was a beautiful sunny day in Woodside, perfect for an outdoor rustic wedding.

I enjoyed getting to know Nate & Audrey during this process and was honored to be chosen as their photographer.  It was a huge team effort getting all the planning and coordinating done, and I want to give a special thank you to Elizabeth Donald for all of her hard work putting this together.

Besides capturing Nate watch his beautiful bride come down the aisle, my favorite moment is when both dads gave a toast.  You can really feel how proud they were of their kids growing up and finding their soul-mates.  It was a beautiful moment they shared, and one that will never be forgotten!

Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Spaun on beginning your journey into marriage.  Thank you for allowing me to capture these special moments in your life!
