Monica & Jeremy and such a beautiful wedding. I was totally in love with the rustic Mexican theme. Loved all the details, the food, the drinks, the ample of time for photos. Loved it! M&JW22.jpg

I am in love with your wedding photography, I look at it every week for inspiration and ideas! I am a self-taught amature wedding photographer and my gear is not the best I have a Canon 40D and 17-85mm and 50mm lens. I am looking to upgrade to a 5D Canon and I was deciding on which lens to get. Looking at your photos I love the bokeh (depth of field) makes the subject really stand out. I was really hoping you would give me a shout and let me know what you reccomend the best (2) lenses for wedding photography and maybe if you can send the link to them. I shop Amazon for all my camera gear but I would be honored to get advise from you, if that is possible?

Feel free to look at my work I gave you my flickr profile link, here it is again: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25251025@N04/

Would be honored to hear from you, I am a huge fan of yours!

Thanks, Anna.

Karina & Alfonso married at Our Lady of Assumption in Turlock CA. Karina contacted me a while back in June of 2009 about her upcoming wedding. Unfortunately Karina's sister Gela was battling a brain tumor cancer and did not survive. The family suffered a terrible loss but they keep her in their hearts everyday that goes by. The Family has created a team in honor of their sister named Gela's Wish for the 2012 Brain Tumor Walk-SF. To donate please visit Karina's team site at Gela's Wish
Venue: CSUS

Two years later the Franco Family is celebrating with joy the marriage of Karina & Alfonso.
I so wanted her Christian Louboutin shoes!K&AW1.jpg

Venue: Vintage Gardens
Catholic Ceremony: Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Gigi and Camilo had two ceremonies. The festivities started with their Catholic ceremony at Sacred Heart in Turlock and the Reception followed at Vintage Gardens in Modesto. Gigi mentioned to me that her grandmother married at night and barefoot. "My grandmother was a "rebel" for back in the day" Gigi said. She knew that in some way she wanted her to be with her. So they had their ceremony at night, barefoot of course just like her grandmother.
