I love shoes! I completely wish I had worn more fun and unique shoes for my own wedding. The bride in the last wedding I had the privilege of photographing did a great job of finding fabulous shoes. I loved that I could use them to get this shot.
I photographed my first wedding at Fremont's Shinn Park this weekend. If you live near this location, and are planning a wedding, you should definitely look into this place. Its a garden setting and the wedding this weekend looked so cute done on the grounds of this park, in front of the historic home on the property. Happy Wedding Planning everyone!
Pictures to come soon!
I just now realized that its been almost a year since I posted something here. That is pretty lame. My only excuse is that I now have a 7 month old daughter who rules my life and the last year has been pretty hectic.
In the last year I did get to do a few weddings and have met some awesome couples. It's funny what a new year can bring. With being on maternity leave and having odd hours of time I discovered some really great new websites for jewelry. I know most of my brides already have their attire set for their big day, but these sites have some pretty neat things to maybe consider.
This past Saturday, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Allison & Tom's fabulous wedding day. Although the weather did not turn out the way we hoped, the day went smoothly, and we ended up with some great shots of this fabulous couple and their friends and family. The bridal party started out on near the marina in a beautiful house with great music and food to prep. I was able to snap a few getting ready shots without making it seem like I was even there. I love it when I can take shots without anyone noticing. It is a fun surprise later for the bride and groom to look at their pictures and think 'wow I didn't even know she got that'.
The wedding party and family members then made their way across to Crissy Field where the Allison walked down a wooden aisle to marry Tom on the beach. The wind made it super cold but the ceremony was beautiful and although we could get the bridal party shots done on the beach we were able to get a few fabulous shots of the new Mr. & Mrs. on the beach.
The reception took place at Perbacco, in downtown San Francisco, which had some amazing food and a great upper room reception location. The staff was incredible and the city setting was perfect for this wine loving, fun couple. The bride and groom treated their guests to some amazing bottles of 96, 93, and 92 Merlot. Altogether it was a perfect day and I hope Allison and Tom truly enjoyed their San Francisco wedding.
I had the fun privilege of photographing Jeanne's bridal shower in Pleasanton, where her great friends and family hosted a decked out party with the cutest favors. Here are some fun shots of the bride and her friends.
I am thrilled to announce that Elizabeth Jane Photography is now a Wedding Chicks preferred vendor. You can now find me at www.weddingchicks.com listed under California, San Jose/SF Bay Area.
This weekend I covered the bridal shower for Jeanne and I wanted to post a few of the fun details her friends planned for her party. They had these awesome decorative elements and these fabulous cupcakes from this new bakery in Livermore near the Panama coffee shop. One of Jeanne close friends took her favorite engagement photograph and had wine labels made, so cute.
In preparation for my weekend engagement photo shoot (pictures from which will be up soon) I drove around Danville in search of some new fabulous places to take advantage of. I was intrigued to find this new place with so many options. Here is what just part of this area had to offer.
Esther and Jason's wedding had some fun elements I wanted to share that don't appear in my wedding section. Enjoy.
I love everything about photography and wanted to share more about what goes into my work and the people I get to interact with.
