Every once in a while you get to do something that makes you feel really good. I had that opportunity yesterday when the groom’s sister called me at 11:30 A.M. desperately looking for a photographer for her brother’s wedding later that afternoon at 2pm! I had already had plans for the day and was exhausted from photographing an all day wedding on Saturday, but I was more than happy to shift my plans around to be there for this couple. This included plans to meet with Setareh and Salvador to show them their wedding pictures at 2pm. Thank you Setareh and Salvador for your kind understanding in letting me postpone our meeting for another week! I’m lucky to have such selfless people as clients. My assistant Amanda, who was also exhausted from the wedding the night before, was also a trooper to be at my studio within the hour to help at the wedding.
I arrived there at their home in Los Gatos to find an intimate group of family and friends gathered for the ceremony which was about to start in a half hour. Jonah quickly got into his tux while Alena was upstairs prepping with her mom. Their backyard overlooked a gorgeous vista in the Los Gatos hills. The ceremony was held on the deck overlooking the hills. Jonah’s brother-in-law, Art, supplied music from his guitar and officiated the ceremony.
