Engagement, Sonoma County and Napa Valley

Angulique and Michael.
Sonoma County and Napa Valley.

After the June wedding in San Francisco I also shot an engagement since I was staying in town for a few days. I did a portrait a while back in Sonoma County. I really like the random locations one can find between that clash of tourism and good o'California's valley.

I went to college in the valley and always miss the dry heat.

Some courtyard.

Entrance to the said courtyard.

Some messy backyard/public land between some old houses.

No idea where this was. Close to some rail road track.

Michael has some golf clubs in his trunk...

Near some abandon building.

In front of a private space. I saw the barn structure from the highway but it has a gate so I did this shot in front of it. Another tribute to one of those [slightly darker] random 80s/90s road trip movies.

Evelyn and Vincent, June, San Francisco

Hmmm this is nostalgic. The wedding was June of this year, but some of the locations were quite nostalgic because I lived in San Francisco for many years.

Double happiness.


Evelyn and Vincent.

Bling blings.

Some random plant outside.

I lived 2 blocks from this church about 20 years ago. Every weekend there's a musician playing a saxophone. And the bells woke us up.

You might also remember this church and Washington Square from the Dirty Harry movie where Clint Eastwood was over-looking the location waiting for the serial killer.


Grant Street, old Chinatown.

Lion dancers practicing outside.

The surveillance system got a fix on my location.

Anya and Mike, May

Bryant Park Grill

A late May wedding. It was a misty and humid day and rain was in the air, but it was cleared for the ceremony and cocktail.





The knife dance.
