This gorgeous couple is now married and we were so excited to be part of their intimate ceremony and celebrate with some photos afterwards.
Grisell started off with flawless hair and make-up done by amazing Heidi of BreatheHawaii.com
We did a nice little First look with her fiance before we headed to the Waimanalo Bay. It started off little cloudy but by the time Sam performed their ceremony, the sun came out to play and I got to photograph these two lovebirds on the beach.
How lucky is baby Kaylie to have two older brothers? They were so cute and caring during the photo session, I can only imagine what a wonderful memories they will have growing up together.
Happy 7th anniversary to Brittany and Marcus! I still remember their wedding in Santa Cruz like it was yesterday and I was so happy to hear that they are going to be in Big Island to celebrate their anniversary with their little boy Ezekiel Miles. Of course I was even more excited that they flew me there to capture their lovely little family. It was so wonderful seeing them again!
It was so much fun photographing Tara. It’s been a while when I took care of her when she was two years old!! Such a wonderful girl – I just love her!!
The Ozel family just spent some time at our house in Hawaii while we were on our trip in California. They got back to the Bay Area just in time so that I got to photograph them along with Zuzka’s parents that came here from the Czech Republic. We played around Sharon park for a while which has a nice little lake to look at and as a nice little background for the photos. The girls were trying to spot the fish and run around the woods in their cute kitty dresses. We enjoyed shooting their family photos and can’t wait to see them next time in Hawaii for more family photos.
Katherine & Nasser first graced the our lenses when we met them at Fort Funston in San Francisco for their engagement session. You can see those photos here: http://luciexyz.com/katherine-nasser-engaged-fort-funston-national-park-san-francisco/ These two were vibrant and full of googly eyes for each other just knowing that they were going to be married soon. Now that day has come and that energy was still emanating from the both of them as we photographed their smiles. These two were ready to tie the knot and nothing was going to get in their way.
We started and ended the day at the same location of the St Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church in San Francisco at the top of Diamond Heights. The church is amazing on the inside with a cozy feel and the stained glass windows diffuse the light a little but add an amazing glow over the whole room. This was our first time in this church and we loved it there. Katherine and Nasser enjoyed their ceremony in the church and then we raced (no joke) off to Golden Gate Field for a stroll through the flowers. With only 10 minutes of photo time in the schedule, we were able to snap some fun and touching photos for them to relish. After we raced back into the limo, we jumped back to the reception where dancing was the focal point of the night. A live band and nearly non-stop music ushered these two into their new lives. By far the live music, people singing along, and high energy dancing made the night memorable. We can see why these two are so happy together. Not only are they awesome, but they are surrounded by friends and family who are just like them. Congratulations to these two and cheers to your future together.
OK – can this couple get any cuter? I went out to the Picchetti WInery in Cupertino with these two to capture some images for them as Benjamin just proposed few days ago. I might have as well not been there – they only had eyes for each other (and occasionally the wine! lol)
But seriously – I can hardly wait for their intimate wedding in Hawaii!
When I first came to the US, I was an au-pair and looked after two year old twins – Will and Tara. Fast forward fifteen years and I’m photographing them both for their senior year in high school. How can you not feel old? lol…. I photographed them both separately. Will with his surfboard in Half Moon Bay and Tara at their School in Atherton.
