For this wedding, I had the pleasure of second shooting with the world renowned Gene Higa. Gene is one of the top photographers in the world that I highly look up to and that made capturing this wedding an awesome experience for me. The day started out with the traditional chinese door games and tea ceremony which is always a great start to the day. We also got some beautiful photos at Stanford where it felt like wedding central with a ton of bridal parties there for portraits. I look forward to hopefully working with Gene again soon!
One of my favorite shots of the day.

The first challenge was to take turns following some yoga poses
The goal of this challenge was to empty the box full of balls by shaking them out.
The bridesmaids always get a kick out of the chinese door games!

The bridesmaids collect the lucky money envelope from the groomsmen and find a battery!
Their photobooth was a big hit and had long lines the whole evening!
Denise and Cisco had an awesome wedding. They had 23 classic cars from Duke’s Car Club join in on the fun to escort the bridal party around and it was a big bridal party. The bride and groom also rode around in the father of the bride’s awesome classic 63 Chevy Convertible which was in such a perfect condition. The cars definitely got some attention driving from St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Mountain View to the reception at the Holiday Inn Mediterranean Grand Ballroom in San Jose. I also shot Denise’s cousin’s wedding last year as Denise actually referred me to her cousin before her own wedding! I would love to shoot another Olmos wedding soon because they definitely know how to party!
