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 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!
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!

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 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!
Venue: Lands End and Sutro Baths, San Francisco
It was quite a blustery day in San Francisco when Janice and Cody arrived at the Land’s End Lookout to meet us. The beautiful view had attracted a lot of tourists, all bundled up tight against the wind chill. That didn’t stop Janice from shedding her jacket to reveal a sweet pink floral dress that flowed so beautifully it took our breath away with every shot!
Even the cold couldn’t put a damper on the love these two share. Their love was evident in every shared glance, in how Cody would wrap his arms around Janice to keep her warm, in how Janice couldn’t help but smile just being near him. It was so sweet to watch, and it made for some fantastic moments to capture.
We cannot wait to see these two on their wedding day. They are so sweet together, and their love story is just beginning!
We first met Keilani and Sean a year ago at their engagement shoot in Downtown San Jose’s Christmas in the Park. We instantly could feel the connection between these two. They make each other laugh constantly, and we love it!
The bride and groom started by getting ready at The Westin San Jose before heading to Holy Family Parish for the ceremony followed by a Samoan reception at the San Jose Police Officer Association Hall. Keilani, a professional softball player, even brought her mitt along!
Keilani and Sean met in American Samoa. Sean was visiting family and Keilani was putting on a softball clinic. So, they incorporated the Samoan culture throughout their reception. Guests were given leis as they entered, Samoan dancers performed, and a full traditional meal was served – complete with a roasted pig! Everyone felt like they were part of the Samoan family – including us! Actually, James here at ShootAnyAngle was actually born in American Samoa, so it was very special for us too! They even made sure that we were gifted leis as well. It was so touching and made the day even more amazing.
Keilani and Sean’s guests came from all over the world to celebrate with them, and they had an absolutely wonderful time. In this day and age, it’s not always easy to get everyone together for a celebration (especially when the bride is a professional softball player and the groom is in the US Army). However, for Keilani and Sean, their family and friends would do anything to come together and make a special day for them. One guest even booked a flight to San Jose, Costa Rica on accident. That didn’t stop him from then turning around and flying out to San Jose, California!
We were so honored to be able to capture their love and to be part of their beautiful Samoan family. Fa’amalo!
