Kristy & Kevin’s Lighthouse Engagement

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comKevin popped the question at the Walton Lighthouse in Santa Cruz Harbor, so when we started planning their engagement shoot, they knew just where they wanted to have it!

Even being hosed by an incoming wave couldn’t damper their spirits.  They laughed and exclaimed, “This is so much fun!!”  It makes us so ecstatic to be a part of the happiest time in people’s lives, and we can’t wait to capture the next chapter of Kristy and Kevin’s love story – their summer wedding!

Aubrey & Shawn’s Historic Small Town Wedding

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comBeing a wedding photographer has brought so much to my life, including old friends!  Back in high school, I was good friends with Aubrey, but we lost touch when we went to college.  Then, earlier this year, I got a message from her – she was engaged!  We met for coffee, and it’s as if we never lost touch.

aubrey.shawn.3I was so honored to meet Shawn, and I couldn’t help but smile to see him through Aubrey’s eyes.  She literally cannot look at him without smiling or laughing!

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comaubrey.shawn.1On their first trip together, they went to Morro Bay and took a drive along Highway 1.  That’s when they stumbled upon a small town with a population of 18: Harmony.  As they walked around town, they knew right then and there that someday they wanted to get married in the small chapel there.

Shelby & Kevin’s Family Engagement Shoot

We couldn’t help but smile as we saw Shelby, Kevin, and little Hudson heading towards us, hand in hand, at Lafayette Reservoir.  They were so excited for their engagement shoot, especially Hudson!

Mommy and Daddy laughed when they saw how much Hudson loved having his photo taken (and seeing the photo on the camera’s LCD screen afterwards).

“He’s definitely a natural!” they exclaimed.  We totally agree!  Since he seemed to love the camera so much, I even offered to let him take a photo of mommy and daddy.  I sat on the ground, and he quickly hopped into my lap to look through the camera.  He loved it!

It was so cute watching this adorable family.  They are so sweet, patient, and caring towards each other.  It makes us so happy!

Fatima & Robert’s Wine Themed Labor Day Weekend Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Photography

This Labor Day weekend was unique not just for the record-breaking heat (it reached 114 degrees in Gilroy), but also for the beautiful wedding of Fatima and Robert!  They began the day with a beautiful ceremony and mass at St. Catherine of Alexandria in Morgan Hill, and then the bridal party and their guests continued the celebration at Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy.  We always love working at that venue since they really kept photography in mind when designing the building and grounds.  There are just so many great backdrops!

We absolutely loved Fatima and Robert’s wine-meets-rustic-glam decor.  They perfectly used deep reds, warm browns, and pops of glittery gold throughout the tablescapes and decorations.  It went great with the wine theme.  The cake even had wine glasses as the topper with little marzipan grapes decorating each tier!  To continue with the theme, guests signed corks and even wrote little messages on them to be stored in a custom shadow box for the couple to hang in their home.  Fatima and Robert also brought in the comforts of summer to their big day by having lawn games outside, cold alcoholic treats inside, and even free flip flops for the guests to use!  We also set up our ShootAnyAngle Photo Booth for them as well, and the guests had a great time.

Fatima and Robert were absolutely on cloud nine and nothing could put a damper on their perfect day – not even the heat!  It’s such a treat for us when a couple can make each other laugh and smile with just a glance.  These two definitely could!  We just sat back and snapped away as they exchanged cute moments as if they were the only ones in the world.  As photographers, we love when that happens!
