Sarah & Danny

Perhaps the best part of being a wedding photographer is when you get opportunity to be a part of some truly amazing events , such as Sarah & Danny's most elegant wedding.

Sarah is the daughter of my great friends, Susie and Scott Volkmann of the Your neighborhood Florist fame.
Spanish hills Country Club was awash with magnificent flowers. Truly an extraordinary wedding that I had the honor to be a part of. Thank you so much Scott and Susie !!

After a slow start, the wedding season is in full swing. And that is just the way that I like it, even if it means endless hours behind the computer :) Here is a slide show from Kuwana and Cory's wedding, probably one of the most memorable weddings ever. Not only did they have the best first dance ever ( Dancing With The Stars has nothing on them), but the crowed was wowed with the puppetering performance by the father of the groom (formerly Ernie of Sesame Street fame).

2008, Another Banner Year

We began the year with a new blog, to highlight all of our incredible couples and their unique weddings, and the promise of regular updates. Regrettably we have not been keeping up as well as we would have liked. Thanks to the most astounding wedding season ever.

We had the opportunity meet some amazing couples, and be a part of their incredible weddings. And the greatest reward is to make friends for life ,an opportunities that I truly appreciate.

Along the way we met some amazingly cool people, such as the virtuoso of broadcasting, the legendary AL Michaels.We met great athletes such as World Champion LA Angel's pitcher, Jon Garland

Jimmy Brettl of the Cleveland Indians, Jason Hirsh of theColorado Rockies and my alma mater California Lutheran University.

Perhaps two of the most intriguing people we met , were the original spearmint twins of the 1960’s. Sisters who truly know how to live life to the fullest, and yes, have twice the fun J

Perhaps the most impressive accomplishment is that of Jessica Mendoza’s selection as the sportswoman of-the-year, a truly a magnificent feat. Congratulations Jessica. You are Amazing !
