Andrew + Maissa Engagement [Mountain Winery]

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!

Tim + Melissa Engagement

I have had the pleasure of knowing both Tim and Melissa for some years now, and I was ecstatic when Tim FINALLY popped the magical question.  I was honored when they chose me to be their wedding photographer, and it has been a blast working with them throughout their engagement.

For this engagement session we met at Lands End in San Francisco on a sunny but very windy day.  We had postponed the photo shoot due to two consecutive weeks of rain.  We also met the next day at the Embarcadero to get some beautiful shots of San Francisco Bay Bridge.  Tim and Melissa are obviously deep in love, and keep each other laughing and smiling.  It was a joy to just be around them and to document their love for each other.

I look forward to photographing their wedding on April 9th!
