Kristy & Kevin’s Enchanting Forest Wedding

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

We’ve been counting down the days until Kristy and Kevin’s big day ever since photographing their sweet lighthouse engagement shoot.  It was all laughter and smiles the whole time, so we knew their wedding day would be something truly special, and it was!

Kristy and Kevin’s ceremony was picturesque.  They exchanged vows under a gorgeous chandelier with the woods and bridge in the background.  Their first kiss was so sweet that the officiant even had them kiss again!

Their reception was an absolute blast, and you can’t beat the gorgeous background of the stone bridge!  They had laid out sweet blankets for their guests for the nighttime, provided a photo booth so guests could take home photo strips (courtesy of ShootAnyAngle Photography), had great music for guests to dance to (courtesy of DJ Aaron Eegle), and had a wide selection of yummy cupcakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes!   There was even a campfire and s’more makings for once the sun went down.  Whether dancing the night away or catching up with family and friends or enjoying one (or two) s’mores, each and every person there had a wonderful time.

Kristina & Jirayr’s Elegant San Franciscan Wedding

We knew we’d have a great time with Kristina and Jirayr ever since we started planning their engagement shoot.  They told us they wanted to incorporate Disney’s Aladdin, and being huge Disney fans ourselves, we were thrilled!  Ever since then, we couldn’t wait until their big day in San Francisco.  We knew it would simply be gorgeous!

Kristina and Jirayr told us about their first meeting and how even though they barely spoke during the work event, they kept catching each other’s eye throughout the evening.  We saw that on their big day as well.  A simple glance from one would make the other smile, and it was so sweet to witness.

The reception was quite a party!  They did a traditional chair dance, and their overwhelming joy got everyone up out of their chairs and onto the dance floor.  We generally see smaller groups on the dance floor, but everyone was just having a blast dancing the night away, and it was a joy to see!

It was said multiple times throughout the day, and we saw proof of it left and right – these two compliment each other so well, and they are each other’s perfect match.  Congratulations, Kristina and Jirayr!

Corie and Ryan’s Intimate Forest Wedding

ASH_6873

Corie and Ryan’s story actually started back when they were just 19. Life brought them back together years later and led to the perfect day at Saratoga Springs!

The couple really wanted to make sure that their friends and family were included in their special day and could enjoy the day to the fullest. Their little boy walked down the aisle too – actually, he ran over to his daddy and gave him a big hug!

Corie and Ryan are so crazy about each other that they actually kissed before the “you may now kiss the bride” line, which we absolutely loved!  It’s moments like that that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Janice & Cody’s Sweet Rengstorff Wedding

We simply couldn’t wait to return to Rengstorff House to capture Janice and Cody’s big day.  These two are just so cute together, and we knew every moment would be magical (just like their engagement shoot at Sutro Baths!).

ASH_5113Photo by ShootAnyAngle Photography, ShootAnyAngle.comPhoto by ShootAnyAngle Photography, ShootAnyAngle.comjanice.cody.1ASH_5373janice.cody.2

The day started with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, followed by an intimate outdoor ceremony.  The couple both love watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, so right before being announced as husband and wife, the officiant handed a red rose boutonniere to Janice.  She then turned to Cody and asked, “Will you accept this last rose?”  It got a huge laugh, and it was a unique and cute way to bring in their combined interest.

Ariel and David’s Old Hollywood Wedding Premiere

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

We were so excited for Ariel and David’s Old Hollywood wedding, especially after having so much fun at their film noir engagement shoot!  They chose the beautiful Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA, which has so many beautiful spots to take photos!

ariel.david.4JAH_0446ariel.david.5ASH_3590

Everything about the day was beautiful, but nothing could hold a candle to the joy of the bride and groom.  They couldn’t stop staring at each other!  Everyone at the wedding was talking about how perfect Ariel and David are for each other and how you just know they will always be together – and they definitely will be!

ariel.david.6Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comariel.david.2JAH_0842Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comASH_3829

The Old Hollywood theme was one of our favorites.  It was a perfect fit for Ariel and David, who are both in the film industry.  Film reels hung from the ceremony gazebo and decorated the cake table, film strips were presented on the welcome table and cake table,  and the cake was straight out of The Great Gatsby (complete with mini Mr. and Mrs. director chairs!).  They even used our engagement photos as their guestbook!  The photos were printed and laid on a welcome table, and guests were asked to autograph them.  They had even printed a movie poster using one of the photos to put on their own red carpet backdrop for guests to take photos on like they were celebrities at a premiere!

This was a very special wedding for us, one we’ve been waiting for since we first met Ariel and David back in 2015 at another wedding.  We love spending time with them both, and their wedding was simply stunning.  There was another, more personal reason why this wedding will always stand out in our minds.  As you may know, we are currently expecting.  While finishing up photos with the bride and groom (and right after the photo below), we felt the baby move for the first time – and towards the bride and groom!  Looks like someone else wanted to congratulate the happy couple too!

Vanessa & Bryan’s Mountain Wedding – With Touches of a Superman Theme!

ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

When we learned that Vanessa and Bryan were both in theater and wanted touches of a Superman theme in their wedding, we knew we were in for a treat!  Our imagination went crazy thinking of a fun photo we could set up specifically for their theme.  So, we staged a shot to make them look like they were flying away!

vanessa.bryan.2JAH_7537vanessa.bryan.3ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

Vanessa and Bryan’s wedding was just so sweet.  The event took place at the bride’s grandmother’s home in Ben Lomond.  They utilized the gorgeous property, including setting up the ceremony, and then the dance floor, under a dramatic willow tree.  Guests also enjoyed the river, and they even enjoyed riding in paddleboat and canoes towards the end of the night!

AJH_8444vanessa.bryan.4ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

The best weddings are ones where you absolutely feel like you are surrounded by love and part of the family.  There was so much emotion in the ceremony and toasts and in the glances between the bride and groom.  It was a treat to witness, and we all felt like family.

A huge congratulations, Vanessa and Bryan!  You are the perfect pair, and we can’t see where you “fly” off to!  Up, up, and away!

Ashlee & Paul’s Foggy San Francisco Engagement Shoot

Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

It was a hot day in the rest of the Bay Area, but as we drove closer and closer to our final destination at Sutro Baths and Lands End in San Francisco, the fog rolled in along with cooler temperatures.  It was like a special little world had been created just for Ashlee and Paul’s engagement shoot!

ashlee.paul.2ASH_2229ashlee.paul.1Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

Ashlee and Paul were the winners of our Ranch at Little Hills free engagement shoot giveaway, and we had so much fun with them!  They were ready for everything and anything, and they were just so happy to celebrate their love for each other.  They were all smiles, and we couldn’t help but smile along with them!

Congratulations, Ashlee and Paul!

Lindsay & Weston’s Sunflower Engagement Shoot

Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

One of our favorite things about working with lots of couples is that we always hear lots of great and unique ideas for engagement shoots and weddings.  Lindsay and Weston told us at our first meeting that they loved the idea of shooting in a sunflower field.  Talk about fun!  We couldn’t wait to find the perfect farm, and we soon got in contact with Muller Ranch.  They were very kind and worked with us to find the best location.

Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comlindsay.weston.1ASH_1956

We literally met Lindsay and Weston out in the middle of the farm land, but we couldn’t have been happier with the spot.  The sunflowers were gorgeous, and we were all alone in the beautiful scene.

Lindsay and Weston were so wonderful to photograph.  More than once we caught them whispering sweet things to each other.  They are so very much in love, and that’s what we love to capture!!

Chelsea & Branden’s Sweet Palo Alto Wedding

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

Chelsea and Branden were married surrounded by family and friends in Palo Alto.  Since family is important to them, they created a very sweet and intimate wedding that even included their adorable dog, Happy!  Since it was a small guest list, everyone felt blessed and special to be there – including us!

chelsea.branden.4ASH_1326chelsea.branden.2JAH_9393Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

Chelsea loves Disney, and Branden loves VW cars (which fits myself and James perfectly!), so we were bound to have a great time with these two!  For photo hour, we all traveled to a nearby park for some fun photos with the bridal party and with Branden’s car!

One of our favorite details of their wedding day was their donut cake.  It was so beautifully done, and we instantly were gaga over it.  After donuts, guests enjoyed an amazing first dance prepared by the couple.  It started off as the classic slow dance but quickly turned into a fast paced choreographed hip hop style dance.  It was the perfect way to get the guests in the mood to dance!

It was a beautiful day, and we were so blessed to photograph such a beautiful and loving couple.  Congratulations, Chelsea and Branden!

Michele & Adrian’s Fairies and Dragons Wedding

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

We could hardly contain our excitement when Michele and Adrian told us the theme to their wedding.  I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan, so hearing about their fairies and dragons theme really got me looking forward to their May wedding at Saratoga Springs.

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.commichele.adrian.1Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

The venue was a perfect backdrop, especially with the hidden bridge in the woods and the gorgeous (and huge!) long bridge that is straight out of a fairytale!  Michele and Adrian’s decor perfectly fit the theme.  The couple’s goblets were dragons that, when put together, made the shape of a heart.  The flower girl wore a custom fairy dress, and Michele even wore a mini fairy in her necklace!  The couple’s cake was truly stunning, and guests enjoyed gorgeous cupcakes with fairytale designs.

michele.adrian.5ASH_0543Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true fairytale without true love, and that’s exactly what Michele and Adrian have.  We loved seeing the way they looked at each other throughout the day, and the little smiles as they held each other close.  It was so sweet!
