I was asked by Melania Mahoney, a Sonoma wedding photographer to help photograph the wedding of Jamie & John in Sonoma County at a private residence in the hills above Sonoma/Napa. The wedding was an intimate small wedding at the grooms parents house. They had done some beautiful landscaping of the grounds and had everything set up for the wedding. It was a photographers dream with the house and landscape looking really good. At night during the reception after the sun went down we had some fantastic and dramatic lighting done on the house, pool, and grounds.
I second shot this wedding with the Santa Clara wedding photographer Sam Hassas. We started off at the Hilton hotel in downtown San Jose for the getting ready images. Then we all headed over to Mission Santa Clara where Diane & Jose had their ceremony and after wedding group formals.
After we finished there we all headed up to the Ranch Golf Club in San Jose.
