Joeseph and Kaori are such a cute couple. They did an awesome photoshoot in traditional kimonos and the time and effort put in to achieve the outfit is so impressive thanks to Toshi at Toshi Studios in Richmond! Afterwards we made a trip to Hotel Mac located in downtown Point Richmond which was the location of the wedding reception. We got to shoot in the restaurant/hotel all by ourselves which gave us a great opportunity to get some great photos!
Derrick and Mariana went on their first date at a Warriors game. Derrick also proposed to Mariana at a Warriors game and yes, they were on the Jumbotron! What better place to do an engagement photo session than at the Oracle Arena where the Golden State Warriors play!
This has got to be one of my favorite engagement sessions of all time. As season pass holders and long time Warriors fans, we had the opportunity to take photos in an empty Oracle arena. It was such an amazing experience to be able to walk around the basketball stadium on a private tour. I even got the chance to make a 3 pointer where Stephen Curry makes at least one in every single game!
Vicki and Anson love to go hiking so they thought it would be fun to do their engagement session at Rancho San Antonio in Los Altos. This is quite a busy hiking trail on a nice day. We made it all the way to the top so it was great to get some cardio exercise in along with getting some beautiful photos!
