Oh man I was so excited about this wedding! For the last three years I have been fortunate enough to shoot for three different couples in a close knit friend group. From Lelani & Matt to Colleen & Tommy and now Leanne & Jeff, I feel so lucky to have met these guys and have been able to grow friendships with each. I only wish I lived in the East Bay so that I could hang out with these awesome people more often. I can't even begin to describe how much fun I have with this group; but hopefully the pics will tell the tale. Right out the gate, Jeff and his groomsmen stripped down to their skivvies just so that they could ham it up with a pillow fight. I felt so honored. Then there was the reverse strip tease, where Jeff's guys threw money (and bananas) at him to, yes, put his clothes ON! Leanne & Lelani were totally cracking up when I showed them some sneak peak shots. The Palm Event Center was a gorgeous choice for Leanne & Jeff. In tune with Lelani, Matt, Colleen and Tommy, Leanne & Jeff got married in the fall with a touch of the Halloween spirit, so it was a perfect choice to do a first encounter with masks! I loved posing Leanne & Jeff or rather just letting them do their thing, because I could tell how much they love each other, and how happy they were to be getting married. It really made my heart swell. Leanne's dress was drop dead gorgeous and sparkled beautifully in the Palm Event Center's barrel room. It was a stunning affair and I had so much fun all day. It was the kind of wedding that makes me want to photograph weddings till I'm old and gray. I'm especially proud of the "thriller" shot I got with each of my couples, which was also in theme with the song played at all three weddings. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Leanne & Jeff, Lelani, Matt, Coleen and Tommy: the warmth of your spirit and the pleasure of getting to know all of you has made me so very grateful.
