Nestldown Los Gatos

Nestldown in Los Gatos is such a gorgeous venue! I’ve known about this location for a while now and have not had the opportunity to photograph at this location until now and it was so much fun! Located off highway 17 in the Los Gatos mountains is this great wedding venue for anyone who wants a forest feel. The 135 acre private property has two large ponds, a beautiful outdoor area for ceremonies and some spectacular and fun spots including a tree house and a railroad. It also helps when Jean and John were having such a good time and truly making it a party for everyone to enjoy.

Cynthia and Henry Wedding at St Marys Church and Dynasty Restaurant

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 groomsmen help the groom serenade the bride.
