We recently had a chance to photograph Valerie and Ben’s Brazilian Room wedding reception and loved spending the day with them. There were lots of favorite from this wedding and we wanted to share a few with our blog readers:

I loved Valerie’s shoes – so bright and cheery, they reminded me of cute Dorothy shoes!

Brazil Room wedding preparation details


We started our coverage when Valerie was almost completely ready. Penney Do is one of our favorite Bay Area make-up artists and she did a wonderful job on Valerie’s hair and make-up!

Love this one of the bridesmaids getting ready – there was a large, horizontal mirror on the wall to help with their preparations:

We had just a few minutes to spare at the Shattuck Plaza Hotel after Valerie was all ready, but we just had to make use of these colorful walls:

Loved their First Look at the Brazilian Room:

We walked around the Tilden Park a bit and even though these photos were taken right in the middle of the day, when sun is the brightest, the light was just gorgeous!

We were happy to see our past clients Zahra and Ryan again! They got married in 2009 and we still remember every minute of their beautiful wedding day:

There was a yummy candy buffet at the wedding so we borrowed some gummy hearts for this ring photo:

Congratulations, Valerie and Ben! It was great to celebrate this day with you :)
