San Francisco Baptism Photographer | Sophia’s Christening | St. Ignatius Church | San Francisco Fairmont
Congratulations Sophia on your Baptism! It was a beautiful ceremony followed by a grand reception with family and friends at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. I enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces once again!
1962, that was when Larry & Julie got married right here in San Francisco. Just to help put things in perspective. In 1962 a gallon of gas cost 28 cents, John F. Kennedy was President, the Cuban Missile crisis happened (sans Magneto & Professor-X), and most importantly Demi Moore was born! Fast forward 50 years wonderful years later to →
Here are some photos from my portable photo studio and on-site printing coverage for a Holiday Party for Apple at the Club Auto Sport in San Jose. Party goers numbering around 700 enjoyed great food, awesome door prizes, dancing, caricature artists, and checking out the collector vehicles throughout the venue. I had a pristine 1966 Ford →
Annabella had her baptism at St. Cecilia Parish and reception luncheon at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. It was a beautiful day to join the Catholic community and you could feel the warmth and love in the baptism chamber as Annabella was baptised with water from Israel's Jordan River. She was a trooper throughout the entire →
I had the recent privilege of being a photography sponsor for the Silicon Valley National Association of Catering Executives (SV NACE). It was a great evening of networking and also listened to Sharyn Abbott present "Mix it UP. Gain New Clients Everywhere You Go". Club Auto Sport hosted the event in San Jose. Such a beautiful venue filled with →
It's hard to believe it has already been two years since I shot Cheri & Aldo's wedding, my very first official gig as a wedding photographer. I still remember it like yesterday... the anticipation, the excitement, the emotions. Of course I was thrilled when Cheri and Aldo contacted me again to be a part of their vintage-themed anniversary →
Lauren & Blair are from LA. I didn't have a chance to get have an engagement photo session but I was happy to cover their wedding rehearsal dinner at El Jardin in Santana Row. It was a great evening of cocktails, food, laughs and music. The perfect eve to their wedding at Hotel Valencia the next day. →
Gaby's Quinceanera ceremony was held at Our Lady at Mt. Carmel in Redwood City with the reception party at the Diamond Palace in Fremont. For more pictures from Gabriella's Quinceanera click HERE. I also took a few videos of the excellent performances using my iphone4. Sorry about me walking across the frame a few times. And just for fun, here's →
It seems like only yesterday when I served as a groomsman in Noli and Jen's wedding party. And now here we are celebrating their daughter (and my niece) Chloe's first birthday. It was a fun Disney themed party in Alameda. The face painting by L'Artiste was amazing! Thanks again Noli and Jen for "hiring" me to →
Hosted at the Lava Lounge in San Francisco. Coincidently this is where it all started for Hayley's Mom and Dad! It was also nice to see Sasha and Philip again, thank you guys for the referral! For more pictures visit the private online gallery.
I had the honor of photographing Theodore's first birthday party. It was fun being Uncle Photographer for the day. Thank you John and Thao for allowing me to capture this special day for your family. Thank you Derek for finally getting Theo to smile at the end of the night!
The much anticipated photobooth pictures from Ben and Angelica's wedding are now available on pictage for viewing. Click here to see them. The event key is Ben's lastname. Their wedding pictures are coming soon (2-3 weeks). Be sure to come back then, if not sooner...
I had the honor of photographing of my nephew Theodore's baptism last weekend at St. Victor's Catholic Church in San Jose. I consider this event is the first big event of his life, the first of seven Catholic Sacraments. He did very well, he stayed awake and kept smiling through the ceremony. Congratulations Theodore!
I was fortunate enough to photograph my very first Quinceñera. Prior to arriving at Lissette's Quinceñera at the Hyatt in Burlingame, I decided it best to do a little research on the significance of the event. Thanks to good 'ole Wikipedia I learned that the Quinceñera is a ceremony held to celebrate a girl's "coming of age". In summary it celebrates the →
I’ve always enjoyed the sound and rythym of Indian pop music. We’ve all heard its influence on Hip Hop over the last decade. We’ve also seen Indian dance enter the mainstream. It is clearly one of the more popular genres in the So You Think You Can Dance series now. A friend of mine at work introduced me to some interesting →
Catherine Potgieter, the founder/designer of MsBellezza Jewelry hired me through Jen Hansen, her personal assistant, to be one of two photographers at MsBellezza Jewelry's Fall/Winter 2010 fashion show event. The wonderful event was held at the Capital Club atop the Knight Ridder Building in downtown San Jose. The guest list was long and distinguished coming from all over California. The entire MsBelleza crew was →
Sad indeed, yet excitement and optimism rises as a new beginning is just around the corner. I had a chance to photograph a farewell party within La Honda Winery in Redwood City. Yeah I know, I didn’t know there were wineries in Redwood City too. It was a lovely party set in a huge venue that included a thundering Taiko drum show →
Daniela with VIVVVA contacted me in search of a professional photographer to be an integral part of the first-ever VIVVVA party in the Bay Area. With an innovative concept and strong beginning, VIVVVA has some potential to build a nice niche for itself in street fashion. The party itself revolved entirely around Fashion. The young party-goers played games and had discussions →
