Beach Wedding | Tiburon Marin County

I always wanted a beach wedding. The big blue sky, the sound of the waves as they crash on the edge of the beach, surrounded by the fresh scent of sea salt and white sand on your toes. I never had a beach wedding but I’m happy to say that my friends Nallely and Erick are getting married on the beach. They are getting married on the beach of Tiburon, a lovely seaside village in Marin County and I’m happy to say that I am their photographer; I’m so excited and I can’t wait!

I hope I don’t trip.

P.S. Do you use Pay Pal?

Wedding Featured | Sacramento Bride and Groom Magazine

With all the stuff that was happening at my place over the holidays it’s been a bit hard for me to be on my game the last few weeks, but I’m excited to see that Marlene and Ernesto’s Wedding was featured in Sacramento Bride & Groom.  They’re such a cool couple and it was so much fun photographing their wedding at Rancho Murieta Country Club. I included an image of the magazine spread. I know it hard to read off my blog but you can read the actual article on-line it’s on page 108 or look for Sacramento Bride and Groom where ever magazines are sold.

Here are two pages of the album that I designed for this event. Weddings are always fun but once that cake is cut and the last dance is done, I’m transform from photographer to a album designer. My job, when laying out the images for the wedding album, is to assemble the images that will best tell the story of the events that took place on your wedding day. The wedding heirlooms that I offer to my bridal couples are custom leather bound albums with images that are printed directly on to the page protecting your investment.

Le Rivage Hotel & Spa Wedding Photography | Susan and Mike

Susan and Mike were married at the beautiful Le Rivage Hotel and Spa which sits right in front of the Sacramento River. Le Rivage has a old Mediterranean charm and it’s a great place for wedding, a few minutes here and I forgot that I was in Sacramento. The ceremony was held out on the lawn over the marina and the guest were a lively and knew how to party.  Later that evening the clouds started to roll in allowing for a dramatic sky and great pictures.

Rancho Murieta Country Club Wedding | Marlene and Ernesto

Rancho Murieta Sacramento Wedding Photography Carlos ValentinoI felt so much love photographing this wedding. I’ve known Marlene for a few years so when she asked if I would photograph her wedding I was thrilled! The wedding began with a rehearsal dinner on Friday night with family, great food, a kiss and a Hawaiian Lei from the Bride, wishing all her guest good luck. The house was buzzing all night with excitement and it ended with a few fun family portraits. The next day was a great day for a wedding. Ernesto paced back and forth as he rehearsed his vows and the rest of the family busied about the house getting ready. At the other side of the community, Marlene was glamorous in her teal Mermaid dress looking like Spanish Royalty. The officiant for the ceremony was the brother of the Bride and doves were released in memory of loved ones. After the toast and the cake the DJ opened up the floor and guest danced and celebrated the whole night through; Rancho Murieta Country Club is a great place for a wedding.

Thank you Marlene and Ernesto for making me feel like family, love and blessing.

Rancho Murieta Country Club | Wedding Testimonial

In & Out Engagement Carlos Valentino Wedding PhotographerBridal couples have sent me emails in the past raving about the service that I have provided for them on their wedding day but this is the first time I receive a compliment an entire year before the wedding.  I was shooting a wedding at Rancho Murieta Country Club this weekend and in the crowd was an engaged young lady that happen to hire me for her wedding next year. Later that night I recieved a quick note on FaceBook from her Fiance saying, “…Nallely told me that she saw you do an excellent job. She said you were everywhere and she hasn’t seen a photographer do a job like you and she wasn’t saying that because you are our photographer. We too are blessed and know that you do more than just photography you truly care about our special day and it is evident that you enjoy what you do…” You never know who is watching.

Trinity Episcopal Church Wedding Photography | Daphne and Chris

The more weddings I do in Sacramento the more I learn and love this place. Daphne and Chris’s wedding took place in Old Folsom. We had fun photographing the bridal party around the Historic Town of Old Folsom. After wards, the ceremony was celebrated at the Trinity Episcopal Church on Figueroa St.  When I saw the location I was amazed how many times I drove by this place and never noticed this charming church.  Founded in 1856, they say that it may be the oldest church in Folsom, and the third oldest Episcopal church in California.  It’s a very nice church for a intimidate wedding and on this day it was nearly 100 degrees.

Sacramento Wedding Photographer | My Wedding Day

Wedding Day | July 24th 2004 | Nathan Smith

I’ve been very lucky to be in love with this lady for that last 16 years. When people ask me why I photograph weddings, the truth is I’m a what you call a quiet romantic. I remember that I cried on the day of our wedding and til this day I don’t totally understand why it happened. I’ve been called a wooss before but this my friends wasn’t a “wooss” moment. The truth is that as we dance our first dance, the love I felt from my wife, my family and friends was so strong that it overwhelmed me and I lost it for a minute.

Why do I share this? Because I am still madly in love with this lady and my wish as a Wedding Photographer is that everyone find their better half and live happily ever after.

Happy Anniversary Babe.
