Palmdale Estates located in Fremont, CA is a rare gem in estates for reception and ceremony venue around the South Bay in San Francisco. The 17-acre estate is gorgeous, full of lush gardens and mini pathways, where the lovely couple Amanda and Santos tied the knot.

We were able to capture Amanda and Santos’s Wedding ceremony thoroughly and it was exhilarating to see no one else held back for the celebration of the lovely couple. Kindly enjoy their smiles, laughter, and joy from the pictures. Feel free to comment on them.

P.S. We love going to Hawaii!

From our last teaser from Grace’s and Kevin’s Wedding held in the scenic and beautiful Bethel Church nearby Santana Row and Valley Fair Mall, Bethel Church is easily accessible from the many freeways surrounding it.

We are super excited to share the rest of the blog pictures with you guys. Grace, Kevin, Kyle, Brittney, Gabrielle and Michael were dressed their best and we all definitely had a lot of fun taking their candid moments and the ones with tears. We had a lot of fun at the wedding and cannot wait for the second session we have with the family in November! Did we mention that it was super nice outside and the sun was shining like the moon at night?

We shot with the 85mm f/1.8 and the 18-50mm f/2.8 to cover most of the range. Both lens are dramatically different in terms of use, but we took advantage of the strengths of their own. Cheers to Stanley helping with the videography.

Without further ado, enjoy these pictures!

It’s portrait time! We thought the black and white brought out more of the classic nostalgic feeling.

Kyle mentioned that he played football so the first thing that hit my mind was “huddle!” . This is our first huddle shot – I was shooting on the ground looking up!

We had a blast being apart of their wedding and hope to have even more fun the next time we meet again later on this year! Congratulations to the two of you!

PS. We both love to travel. LA or Seattle anyone?

It was such a blessing for us to shoot Grace & Kevin’s intimate wedding ceremony at Bethel Church in San Jose, California in late summer. We have always drove by Bethel Church since it looks small on the outside, but when we entered the front door steps, we were blown away on how grand Bethel Church really was. Their kids, Kyle, Michael, Brittney and Gabrielle were a blast to work with. The flowers and arrangements were beautiful. Plus with the late Indian summer weather in Northern California, you can’t ask for a more picture perfect day at Bethel Church in San Jose.

We are so excited for all of them that we thought of showing a teaser picture a day after their big day. Big smiles for everyone! ^_^
