Mission San Rafael & St. Vincent September 29, 2008

Filed under: Weddings — aueysantos @ 3:52 am

Last wedding of September! Kerry and Jeff’s wedding in Mission in San Rafael was absolutely beautiful and I had the opportunity to capture some priceless moments, alongside the talented San Francisco photographer Kinsley Wong. The overall tone of the wedding was full of love, family-oriented and absolutely fun. The reception followed at Saint Vincent, in San Rafael where the guests dined and danced into the night. Here are some of my favorites from the day.

Mini-Sessions at Kolb Park September 27, 2008

Filed under: Babies,Family Portraiture,Toddlers to Teens — aueysantos @ 5:58 am

After about a bout of what felt like fall weather, the sun made a reappearance this week with a vengeance! But all’s good as we headed outdoors for another round of mini-sessions at the park. This time we ventured to Kolb park in Dublin for an energy-filled morning of pictorials with and Masters and Mistresses of Cuteness. Me and the hubby really worked up a sweat capturing these images, but we had so much fun! Thanks to all the cooperative and adorable models! You are all fabulous!


Monterey Plaza Hotel September 24, 2008

Filed under: Weddings — aueysantos @ 7:29 am

Classy and sophisticated yet full of warm and fuzzy love moments. That’s how I’d describe the wedding of Donna and Karl, which I had the pleasure of shooting alongside Claudia Akers in Monterey this past month. The beach setting was simply breathtaking and Monterey was a perfect backdrop to beautiful wedding.

Mini-Sessions at Seven Hills Park September 13, 2008

Filed under: Babies,Family Portraiture,Portraits — aueysantos @ 4:03 pm

“Babies are a nice way to start people.” I can’t remember who said this first, but I love this quote. I love everything new: new gear, a new place to visit, a new car smell. And babies…well, babies are the ultimate in newness. New people! Here’s a sneak peek into the first of many mini-sessions at the park I’ll be doing in the coming weeks with various Moms groups in the East Bay. It was so much fun. Both babies and moms (one dad too!) were all great and cooperative models and it was a great way to start off my autumn shooting season.

8 month old Tanav was the first model of the day. The moment I saw him in his stroller, he was already smiling at me.

10 month old Emma is such a doll!

I call 11 month old Hannah the “peekaboo baby.” The game just set her off in fit of giggles!

Zoe was such a little lady.

Lucas is a real go-getter. Once you put him on the ground, he’ll go go go!

And almost 1 year old Chloe had the most beautiful eyes.
