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.
After I talked on the phone with Stephanie about their wedding and the things they had planned I knew they were going to be a fun couple. We started off the engagement session at the old Forbes Mill in Los Gatos. We both mentioned the irony that Stephanie and I have lived in the South Bay our entire life but have never been inside. After spending a little bit of time at the mill we headed out to St Joseph Open Space for a few minutes to get a few scenic portraits of them. We had great light and nice green grass to work with.
Once we finished in the hills we headed into downtown Los Gatos for our last location and a change of clothes. We made this location our more formal location while the other was our casual locations.
