It was a beautiful June wedding when Alex Bauler married Hannah Moffat.  I had the honor of photographing this event held at the beautiful Brookshire Gardens in El Dorado, California.  My daughter and son-in-law were married there about 2 years ago and I fell in love with this place. So, it was a double pleasure for me to be the photographer.

Daniel and Brittany got married a couple of weeks ago.  It was a fun and energetic and unique wedding.

The wedding was held at the bride’s parents’ house outside of Jackson, CA.  It was beautifully decorated for this outdoor wedding.

The bride wore an adorable short, swishy white sundress with 1940’s style turquoise shoes. The main color she chose was purple.

They chose to do a “First Look”, which we shot on the back deck of the property since guests had begun to arrive several hours before the wedding ceremony was to begin.

We had the groom close his eyes while the bride came up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder.  This was their first look and it was done before the ceremony.

Here are some more photos of this very charming wedding.

Samantha and her boys

Samantha and her boys

I was so honored to be chosen to photograph this wonderful family for a Mother’s Day Gift for mom, Samantha. Her oldest son had a brief leave from the Marines and she wanted some pictures with the whole family while he was home with them.

Some moments with the Ferrands

Some moments with the Ferrands

They are a fun loving family.  Sam had asked me if I could add the family dog into some of their photos, if he behaved.  I was game, but as soon as I arrived the dog jumped into the small garden pool and began digging furiously, covering himself with water and mud.  At that point, we decided that the dog would probably have to be left out of the family photos. He had other ideas and came out of the pool in the middle of our shoot and began to shake himself off…sending water and mud flying.  If I hadn’t been trying to protect my camera, I would have taken photos of this event because it was pretty funny.

You will note that the younger son changed out of his white shirt, which probably took the brunt of the energetic and very happy dog’s shaking.  However, he looked great in the blue shirt.

Samantha, at times, could not keep the tears from falling as we took various photos switching family members in and out of the frame.

All in all, it was a great time and I got to know a little bit about this wonderful family.

We also included Samantha (Mom) with each of the family members.  Very touching for me to see the interaction between these loving family members.

And, I end this photo shoot with a shot of the men in Samantha’s life.  Happy Mother’s Day, Sam, and thank you for your family’s service and sacrifice for the freedoms this country holds dear.
