I’ve done engagements with World War II planes and vintage Mustangs… but I have to say, it was quite the experience to walk into a huge Shelby collector’s back room and come face to face with a Lamborghini Murcielago (swoon!) and a series (a series!!) of Shelby cars. So when we got to select which Shelby we’d use for the engagement (what? choice?!), I have to admit I blushed and pointed at the 50th anniversary Shelby. Its classic beauty is nothing less than breathtaking, but it couldn’t outshine Linh and Jerome’s equally impressive beauty. You’d think they’re models – but no, they’re a super vibrant couple who braved the Napa rain to produce some of the most amazing engagement photographs I’ve ever created!

So thank you Linh and Jerome… and I can’t wait for the wedding day!

Love,

XXX Caroline

We’re always up for fun and quirky ideas, so when Avanti & Sunil told us they wanted to have fun with balloons, we just couldn’t resist! As we walked around our favorite Mountain View park, we decided on the spur of the moment to rent some bicycles… it’d been AGES since I’d ridden one, and it’s true, you don’t forget! We had many many laughs going up and down the small hills, and amazing light, which was perfect for the medium format Mamyia I brought along!

Tara and Sean had a wonderful wine country themed wedding at the California Golf Club in South San Francisco! The California Gold Club offers amazing grounds and views wherever you turn. When you first come in, you are greeted by wonderful rows of trees and a grand entrance. The building presents itself with elegance and grace, and you have to love the welcoming fountain in front!

There are accessible grounds in front and back of the building. For Tara and Sean’s wedding, we even had access to golf carts to roam around and pick our favorite views! That allowed both the bride and groom to take photos with their parties before the wedding without risking their significant other – or the guests – to see them before the ceremony!
The ceremony can be held outdoors or indoors. Tara and Sean were very fortunate to have lovely weather for their ceremony, so they enjoyed a very elegant outdoor wedding overlooking the green fields and trees as far as the eye could see!
After the ceremony the guests enjoyed an open bar with drinks outdoors and indoors. The bar area is situated to the left of the entrance, while the reception area is separated to the right, so that the cocktail hour can happen right next to the reception area, but guests can mingle, talk, take photos at the photobooth that was made available to them, and have fun! This relaxing time gave the bride and groom plenty of time to escape and take beautiful formal shots without being interrupted. A little quiet time after the “I dos” is very precious :)

I love inspiration boards! This one, strong in passion with contrast of reds and blacks, showcases a wonderful venue: the San Jose Rotunda, aka San Jose City Hall. The city hall is incredibly photogenic and offers angles upon angles. The event center charges many of its services by the hour, but you have the option to just do the ceremony there or hold the reception in this gorgeous, modern building there as well.

Being a humongous coffee drinker, I was beyond excited to shoot at the brand new Pascucci Caffe in downtown San Francisco, right across the AT&T Park. The decor is as delicious as the famous nutella cappuccino, and set the stage for a wonderful coffee & cupcakes theme (courtesy of Cupcake Cove San Francisco). Gina & Luke were just so delightful – Gina made the save the date flags for her favorite cupcake flavor – aren’t they just amazinglicious?
