We first met Shelby and Kevin (and their adorable son, Hudson) at their engagement shoot.  They were all so fun to be around, and it was such a treat to capture their sweet story.  So, we couldn’t wait for the big day!

The couple chose The Ranch at Little Hills for their wedding day, and it was the perfect backdrop for their rustic glam theme.  All of the bridal party wore cowboy boots, and we loved how the men paired their sleek gray vests with blue jeans!

We instantly fell in love with the reception decor, which was so elegant and yet still had rustic touches here and there.  And that sweetheart table!  Gorgeous!

Shelby and Kevin made the wedding day kid-friendly as well.  They included a kids table, coloring sheets, lawn games, and even cake pops!  All of their guests had a wonderful time dancing the night away, taking photos in a vintage VW bus, and enjoying their delicious meals and dessert bar.  It was a beautiful day, and we are so honored to have been a part of it.

Anne and Kevin’s wedding was such a treat to photograph!  Their gorgeous wedding took place at Angela’s alma mater of Santa Clara University with a breathtaking ceremony inside the historic mission followed by a party under the stars outside of the Adobe Lodge.

Anne and Kevin met in Scotland (where Kevin is from), and they’ve been inseparable ever since.  We loved hearing about their adventures in the UK, and how they became so close.  You can tell these two are just filled with love and admiration for each other.  It shines through in every smile, every glance, and every laugh.

Their reception was so elegant, and it also included personal touches too.  Each table included a framed photo of their time together, and guests absolutely loved them!  The couple also has a favorite chocolate from the UK, and they imported a ton of it to have as yummy favors for guests.  Anne also made sure to wrap the cake stand holding those chocolates and her bouquet in a plaid ribbon to match Kevin’s family’s kilts.

The day was so special for everyone involved.  Guests came from all over the world to support Anne and Kevin – even from Scotland and Iceland!  The couple made sure to spend time with everyone, and there was certainly no shortage of laughter and merriment as the party went on throughout the night.

Congratulations, Anne and Kevin!  Your day was beautiful!!

Yeny and David were all smiles at their big day at the Rengstorff House.  Everything about their wedding was pure elegance and simply stunning!

yeny.david.6ASH_2142_1yeny.david.4yeny.david.7

We absolutely loved their whites, pinks, blues, gold, and green decor.  And that couch at their sweetheart table was simply wedding goals!  Plus, with a backdrop like Rengstorff and Shoreline Lake, you can’t go wrong!  We particularly loved their favors – they had cookies made to look just like them!  It was so cute, and it was a unique idea too.  Of course, what made the day truly special was them!  They were so happy and full of love, and it was truly a treat to witness.

Kristina & Jirayr’s Elegant San Franciscan Wedding

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

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.jirayr.1ASH_7684krisitna.jirayr.2ASH_7734kristina.jirayr.3ASH_7691_1JAH_2729ASH_7421

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!

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!

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!

Megan & Ray’s Family Engagement Shoot

We absolutely love seeing couples that make each other laugh.  A simple look will send the other one giggling, and it’s not only incredibly sweet to witness, but it also makes for great photos!  Megan and Ray were laughing the whole time, and it made the shoot so much fun!

megan&ray.4ASH_9904Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, ShootAnyAngle.comASH_9972

Megan and Ray chose the gorgeous Durst Winery as the backdrop for both their engagement shoot and their fall wedding.  Not only was it a great location for photography, but it was a wonderful spot for their kids to hang out with Grandma until they were ready to join us for photos.  We love that Megan and Ray chose to include their adorable little ones in their engagement shoot.  After all, the wedding will be a big day for the whole family!

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!

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comkristy_kevin.5When we saw them walking towards us, we could see from way off that they had absolutely huge smiles on their faces.  Their happiness was so infectious that we were all laughing the whole time!

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comASH_9716_1Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

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.

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comWe loved their laid back and intimate ceremony.  It was so personal and fun, and everyone there felt truly special to be one of the few to witness their beautiful wedding.  It was the perfect fit for Aubrey and Shawn.

Shelby & Kevin’s Family Engagement Shoot

ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

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!

ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comshelby.kevin.1ASH_7792

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!
