Tracy & Charles’ Wedding, Saratoga CA

I have been looking forward to attending my friends Tracy and Charles wedding from the day they were engaged. I feel honored and grateful to have been asked to photograph it, and was lucky enough to have my friend Josh Gruetzmacher along to shoot with me. A few months ago I shot Tracy and Charles’ engagement pictures, and which just confirmed to me what I already knew, that their wedding was going to be a special day. They decided to get married in Tracy’s backyard in Saratoga and the location couldn’t have been more perfect. I love both shooting details and catching the emotions of couples and their families on the wedding day, this event was truly overflowing with both.

I love natural light, and the room Tracy chose to get ready in was full of it!
Below, Josh’s shot of Charles writing some last thoughts before he heads out to be a married man.
For some of the formal pictures we headed over to Hakone Gardens, which was just a few minutes from Tracy’s house.
Bride, groom, family and friends, everyone was holding back tears at the ceremony. 
On our way over the reception we spotted some sweet train tracks and took a few moments to hang out and take some more pictures.
Lots of hugs and laughter came with the toasts, and evidently Charles is still getting used to where that ring is 🙂

Thank you everyone, it was a joy to be a part of such a beautiful day!


Thank you Matthias (and Josh) for capturing these images and allowing us to relive the happiest day of our lives over and over again.

beautiful colors and moments as always! Love the emotions from the reception.
