Karissa Wright Productions had an outstanding opportunity to photograph and film at Oakdale's The Reata for Zared and Jennifer's August summer's end wedding. Years, months, days, and hours were prepared and executed to make this one day of celebration of their union possible. However, for every story, there is a beginning, so let's start there!
It was such an honor and a blessing to have had witnessed, filmed and photographed Garret and Gina’s winter elopement wedding in Sonora’s Sparks Ranch Resort. Gina had reached out to me a few weeks prior to the wedding and told me their love story. Although tragic and hard their journey was, this next chapter was a time of rejoicing for everyone.
For couples who love the ocean but not the beach, I highly recommend having your photo session near the Sutro’s Bath area in San Francisco. Unfortunately one of the more uncontrollable aspects of the area is the weather, but lucky for Jared and Janessa the sweater was cleared of clouds and the cotton candy sky was at its fullest.
After much anticipation, Pedro and Susan became husband and wife in Stockton’s Morris Chapel on the University of Pacific’s campus. The stain glass windows (to which my second shooter, Gavin Moss, kept referring it as chandeliers haha!) throughout Morris Chapel brought upon a sense of reverence and timelessness to their wedding ceremony.
Fate, destiny, chance, God ordained, or whatever you want to call it, John and Jamie's outdoor summer wedding would not have been possible if they didn't meet at a bar in Las Vegas. The classic story of a man meets woman and exchange phone numbers to later keep in touch. Their acquaintance turned into a friendship, then into a relationship and now has turned into a marriage of a lifetime commitment to one another.
