About Hello everybody,  Welcome to our new blog of Cabrera Photography and Films!  This is a journal  of both our business and personal lives.  We are a husband and wife team covering all of Northern California and worldwide specializing in documenting amazing weddings and lifestyle portraiture.  We are artists capturing stories "storytellers" to be exact and would love to capture yours!  We would love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment and check back often.  Enjoy!
Vanessa is so full of life and energy!  I felt like a teenager again when I was shooting her.  She was so ecstatic to have her Senior Portraits shot.  I could feel her energy jumping right into my camera.  I had so much fun with Vanessa, her mom and lil sissy.  Vanessa is planning on attending college in San Francisco majoring in Fashion and she told me already that I am going to be her wedding photographer.  But Mom and I said "not until at least 10 more years OK!"  and we all started laughing.  I love this girl, she is a bundle of sweetness.  This session totally rocked my world so yes I have made a slideshow for you all to enjoy!

Nicole and Merek's beautiful wedding took place in Livermore CA at Murrieta's Well.
They have an incredible love for each other and life itself.  Their love is so contagious it made for such a wonderful celebration among friends and family.  They had a traditional tea ceremony along with many details throughout the day.  They opted to see each other before the ceremony to get in lots of photos and to enjoy the night away with their guests.  Click here for a slideshow of their wedding, enjoy!

p.s. Thank you to my wonderful husband for helping me second shooting.

Eric is growing so fast.  I can't believe he is almost going to be a year old.

Sometimes I have a hard time photographing him because he always wants to get the camera.

Oh I was so excited to shoot this wedding :)  I had never been to Half Moon Bay.  This little town is so cute and much smaller than I thought it would be.  Everything went so smooth and everybody was excited for the big day.  Here are some of my favorites.
