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!

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!
