Caitlin and Tim’s Forest Adventure Wedding in Saratoga, CA

ShootAnyAngle PhotographyCaitlin and Tim absolutely love the outdoors and adventure.  After all, he proposed on top of Half Dome in Yosemite after a 3-night backpacking trip!  So, when it came time to picking their wedding venue, Sanborn Park in Saratoga, CA was the perfect pick.  The park has a stunning redwood grove with a deck built in – perfect for ceremonies!

We always have a wonderful time with wedding parties, but this group was truly memorable.  In the middle of shooting their portraits, they all burst into song!  They started singing “Make a Man Out of You” from Disney’s Mulan – so of course, we joined in!  In true Disney fashion, it was magical.

After the ceremony, the guests headed to the History Club of Los Gatos to start the festivities.  We loved Caitlin & Tim’s special touches: the “Just Married” banner on the head table, steins for the groomsmen, and little jam jars as gifts.  They even had an ice cream bar instead of cake, which was amazing!

Melanie & Adam’s Winery Harvest Reception

Melanie&Adam.7Melanie and Adam seriously give us wedding goals!  After a stunning Hawaiian wedding on the beaches of Maui, the couple returned back to the mainland for a harvest winery reception at Kirigin Cellars.  That way, friends and family could enjoy the celebration even if they weren’t able to make it out to the islands.  This couple is all about including those close to them, and it makes everyone feel like family!  They even made sure that their little dog was part of the celebration!

We absolutely loved their fun harvest theme.  It was done so beautifully and was perfect for an October wedding.  To add to the family feel, the couple even brought in a mariachi band and even a piñata!  The bride and groom even got their turn with the bat!

Jen & Paul’s Art Museum Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyWhen we first met Jen and Paul, we talked about how they wanted to do something unique and artistic.  We started by planning a special engagement shoot up at Lick Observatory, including nighttime shots!  It was great to do something so different and special to the couple, and we couldn’t wait until their big day at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, CA.  The great exhibits made for colorful and fun backdrops, and Jen and Paul did a wonderful job of making their wedding unique to them.  It was quite different than most weddings out there – which we love!  We also made sure to bring in more nighttime photography.  The couple loves astronomy.  As a matter of fact, Jen’s ring even has meteorite in the band!

In addition to the great venue, they made sure to incorporate beautiful details.  Their flowers were not only utilized in the bouquets and boutonnières, but each table had its own unique display with miniature pieces of art for the table numbers.  The bride blew us all out of the water with her absolutely stunning blue necklace.  Talk about serious necklace envy!

Jen & Paul were such a joy to watch.  They are a perfect match, and there is so much love and partnership between them.  They would do anything for each other – even attend sporting events (Paul isn’t a big fan of sports).  They are beautiful inside and out, and it was a pleasure to capture their beautiful day!

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!

Jessica & Aidan’s Sweet, Casual Garden Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Photography

One of the great things about shooting at the same venue is seeing how each couple can make it their own.  Jessica & Aidan made the grounds of the Rengstorff House in Mountain View feel like their own backyard!  They had lawn games for the kids, a delicious buffet, an ice cream cart, and lots of great music for their guests to enjoy.  It was all around relaxing and just plain happy!  Of course, everyone could feel the love between these two.  They really are each other’s best friends.

The ceremony was very sweet, and the officiant was a friend of the couple who was expecting – and her due date was the day of the wedding!  Luckily, the little one chose to wait a little while longer before greeting the world – though that would have made for a great story!  Jessica and Aidan also brought in a little nightstand for decoration (and to hold the rings and bouquet), which looked beautiful.  It’s definitely an idea we’d love to steal!  For music, the groom’s brother played the bagpipe!

Stephanie & Jason’s Downtown San Jose Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

We were immediately excited when we learned about the locations for Stephanie and Jason’s big day: the beautiful Hotel De Anza for getting ready photos, followed by a traditional ceremony at the breathtaking Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, and finishing with a reception at the San Jose Police Officer’s Association.  It was the perfect blend of urban and traditional looks.  Plus, when you have such a great couple like Stephanie and Jason, you’re bound to get amazing shots!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Hotel De Anza brings their guests back to the class of the 40s, so it was a great backdrop for Stephanie & Jason and their bridal party.  Located in Downtown San Jose, we were able to utilize the the city and even the roof of the building to bring in a classy urban feel.  The sweet details of the sunflowers in the bouquet and the stunning cathedral length veil really captured the couple’s traditional and yet fun side.

The majestic cathedral was absolutely breathtaking, and we were so honored to be able to photograph there!  Add in the gorgeous bride and groom with her beautiful Trudy’s gown, and we were definitely having all the feels!  Of course, the best part was simply seeing Stephanie and Jason together.  These two are clearly crazy for each other, and it shows!  We were so delighted to be a part of their beautiful day.

Jessica & David’s Romantic Nature Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Jessica and David’s beautiful day was at the historic Rengstorff House in Mountain View, California.  They chose a romantic nature feel for their wedding, and it was perfect.  We loved it all – from the floral crown to the lego tie clips to the moss and wooded centerpieces.  There were so many beautiful little details that we were just head over heels for!  Plus, it made the wedding so much more personal to the couple.  Jessica even had a handmade gown designed and made by one of her bridesmaids, Janelle Yee.  We absolutely adored it!  Not only did Janelle make the wedding dress, but she made her own dark green, stripped bridesmaid dress!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Instead of choosing just one color for the bridesmaids, Jessica chose two – mint and dark green.  The combination was simply beautiful for photographs, and they blended great with the guys’ floral ties and grey suits.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The centerpieces brought in a fantastical woodland element complete with little butterflies and birds as chandeliers and bistro lights hung from wires above.  To add in an even more personal touch, the bride and groom used a family heirloom cake topper on their own cake!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The best part of the wedding was the bride and groom themselves.  Jessica and David are so fun to be around, and every moment with them is a blast.  They and the father of the bride even requested that they get a photo with us!  It was so sweet. They are the perfect match, and it’s such a treat to watch the two of them together.  There is never a shortage of love or laughter, and everyone can feel it.  We love these two!

Lichy & Ken’s Wedding in the Golden Hills of California

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Lichy and Ken chose the stunning venue of The Ranch at Little Hills in San Ramon, CA for their gorgeous June wedding.  The venue provided so many fun backdrops, including a beautiful forest for their ceremony!  It was the perfect fit for the couple who love the outdoors.  They love it so much that they even got engaged on a 30 mile backpacking trip!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Their beautiful forest ceremony was straight out of a fairytale.  Bridesmaids shone in mint, and groomsmen were dapper in their navy suits.  Instead of an arch or statement piece at the front of the altar, the couple chose to let nature be their decoration – and we loved it!  They also put a piece of pallet art at the entrance to the ceremony space, which was the perfect minimalistic touch.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

When we learned that one of their favorite activities is rock climbing (and noticed there was a rock climbing wall at the venue), we mentioned posing with the wall to “stage” a climb.  We should have known these two would want to actually ROCK CLIMB IN THEIR WEDDING CLOTHES!  We were blown away when Lichy kicked off her shoes, and started climbing!  Needless to say, that was a first!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

Lichy and Ken made sure to make their guests feel at home with a great reception.  Guests danced under the stars and bistro lighting and enjoyed Gelati Creation popsicles.  The minimalist decor was perfect and well-suited to their laid back style and personalities.  The wood slices, succulents, baby’s breath, and tea lights looked great with the natural backdrop of the venue.  We loved everything about it!

Jessica & Daniel’s Mad-Hatter Tea Party Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyIt was such a treat to photograph Jessica and Daniel’s Mad-Hatter tea party themed wedding in Napa Valley. Not only was the couple completely and madly in love, but their big day also had amazing and unique details that were simply gorgeous. The couple loves all things Disney, so their violinist played Disney songs during the ceremony including “I See the Light” from Tangled, “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Love is an Open Door” from Frozen. They also had some hidden Mickeys in their decorum, so we created some more through photography (in their ring shots and in shots of the desserts). The couple even planned their wedding to correspond with Dapper Day in Disneyland. Their Friday wedding allowed them enough time to drive down for the fun themed Disney day.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

The amazing wedding planner, Christina of Emelina, created these gorgeous tea cup floral centerpieces (with the help of Mack Floral Design) with books and antique knickknacks. They also created a giant keyhole through which the guests and bridal party would enter through to transport them to the magical world that they had created for the ceremony. The venue was a great backdrop, and the couple chose it because it reminded them of Alice in Wonderland the moment they laid eyes on it.

Jessica and Daniel really broke the mold with their wedding, and we love that! Even the bride’s wedding dress was a unique step away from the traditional white gowns. It perfectly fit with the whole feel of the wedding. We’re a big believer in the fact that weddings should reflect the couple and be specific to them, and this couple did just that!

Jenna & Jack’s Sweet Winery Wedding – Complete with the Milky Way!

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyAfter a sweet ceremony at San Francisco City Hall, Jenna and Jack created a beautiful wedding in the scenic Los Gatos hills to share with their friends and family. Every moment of the wedding was simply stunning – straight out of a magazine! The wedding had a very intimate feel both in setting and in feeling. As a photographer, we absolutely love when couples have sweet private moments in which they can only see each other despite being surrounded by others. Jenna and Jack had so many of these moments. You can tell just by looking at the photos that they truly are each other’s best friend and the love of their lives.

As Jenna and Jack got ready for their big day, there were no nerves or fears, just tranquility and pure joy knowing what was coming. You could feel the support and love from all the couple’s friends and family as they prepped for the big day and entered the ceremony site. The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s good friend, Sean, and included little anecdotes about the couple – such as their love of Netflix and Facebook!

After the ceremony, the guests delighted in taking a big group shot with the couple and mingling with a glass of Regale Wine in their hands as dinner was set up. The long rows of tables had a gorgeous view looking out over the mountains (and bocce court!) under beautiful bistro lights. As wedding photographers, we’ve heard lots and lots of toasts. These were some of our favorites. To start, the groom’s siblings gave them funny gifts for their lives together – including a flag that had been created especially to combine their two home countries, Canada and the United States. The maid of honor and parents of the bride had truly touching toasts about their beautiful daughter / sister and how clear it was that the couple constantly made each other better and happier than they had ever been before.

Once the dance floor opened up, the guests really started to show off their skills! The floor was constantly occupied, as was the nearby photo booth! We managed to sneak the bride and groom away for a special photoshoot though. In the Bay Area, it’s rare to find someplace where you can see the Milky Way, and it’s quite hard to photograph surrounded by so many lights of the city. We knew the couple loved the idea of night photography, but we didn’t tell them until that night what we hoped to get. At this mountain venue, we had limited lights around us, and the venue kindly turned off their outdoor lights as well. As the saying goes, “the starts aligned perfectly” to get the shots we had hoped for – the beautiful bride and groom under the Milky Way.

ShootAnyAngle Wedding Photography

ShootAnyAngle Wedding PhotographyAs we watched everyone leave at the end of the night, every single person had a huge smile on their face. Jenna and Jack wanted to make sure they had a wedding everyone could enjoy and cherish, and they certainly did just that. These two light up when they are together, and their life together is sure to be a beautiful one.
