Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
-Brian, Heather, & Baby Gross =)
These are just some detail photos of a holiday party I photographed last week at the beautiful Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. A beautiful venue in itself decorated to set a festive holiday mood. This is one of my favorite venues in the Bay Area. I shot an awesome wedding there earlier this year which you can check out here. Anyone planing a wedding or similar event should take note on how the things often overlooked (such as lighting) can really make a dramatic difference! Enjoy~
Chris, Shannon, and Hailey. The Kings! I have been friends with Chris & Shannon for a long time. A looooooooong time. Their daughter Hailey is a cutie patootie and one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Who am I kidding she's one of my favorite subjects, period. =) She has graced the pages of this blog before (most recently,here) <-- but this time she brought her parents along for a quick holiday family photo session.(or was it the other way around?) Anyway. Here are just a few photos from our session along with the winning image that went out as their holiday card. Enjoy! Brian
And the Christmas Card winner....
And we had some rediculous weather for a few days last week so I took a moment to be a goof =p
Thanks for stopping by~
Jason and Veronica are engaged. Yep, it's true. Getting married too. Next October. Personally, that's my favorite time of year for a wedding. My personal wedding was on October 15th. The weather here in Northern California is still so beautiful that time of year and the fall colors are...well pretty awesome(see below). They already have a little mini family going on with their two awesome little dogs, Buster and Maeby, so it only made sense to include then in some of the photos. I'm a dog person so I'm all for it whenever people want to include them in their photos, whatever the occasion.
Originally we planned to do their engagement photos at a different location but when I saw this place this time of year I had a ton of ideas so we switched it up and I think everything came out great. Jason warned me up front that the only way he was going to smile naturally was if I could say something to make him laugh. I'm not going to mention here some of the things that were said trying to achieve this, but suffice to say we had some fun with it. =) If the engagement session was this much fun, I can't wait to see what's in store for the wedding. I know it's going to be a blast.
As usual, here are just some of my favorites from the session(and there were a lot!)
