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!
