“It’s going to be a hot one” I thought as we reached the beautiful grounds for Pamela and Raphael’s wedding in Los Altos. As I saw the backyard where this day was to take place the next thought was “WOW, is this going to be an amazing place for a wedding!” Pamela grew up in this house and she couldn’t have picked a better place for her and Raphael’s celebration.
With temps reaching over 90 degrees, our goal for the day was quite honestly not to cook :) The best photographs usually happen in the shade and Pamela and Raphael also enjoyed that we kept them as cool as possible during their photos.
I absolutely loved that this couple really wanted for their photos to be natural and photo-journalistic. As much as we LOVE to have fun with creative portraits, the heart of a wedding for us are the emotions and intimacy shared by the guests. This day was intimate indeed with two families coming together and really supporting Pamela and Raphael.
Our warmest congratulations to Pamela and Raphael! You are a lovely couple and it was such an honor to witness your wedding day.
P.S. A BIG thank you to Curtis Myers for being my second photographer on this day! I couldn’t have picked a better partner and his work speaks for itself.
