John and Ria were married just a few weeks ago in San Jose. They got ready at the Fairmont Hotel, were married at the gorgeous St Joseph’s Basilica, and had their reception at the amazingly modern San Jose City Hall. Quite the trifecta!
Here’s John, I believe he was doing some last minute cramming, writing the prayer for that night, and yes that’s the cake on the table next to him. 🙂
Ria getting into her dress. Believe it or not, Ria’s Mom actually MADE THE DRESS. Amazing.
Cute moment before Ria and Dad walk down the aisle.
Sometimes things align just right for an awesome shot. That’s actually a guest’s flash that fired on the opposite side of them creating that cool backlight. Hey! Point and Shoot cameras are good for something! Check out that church!
Love this one:
A couple of cute moments during the ceremony:
My favorite portraits of the day. I really enjoyed playing with all of the spectacular architecture!
The caterers had this really elaborate setup outside to cook the food. I loved the combo of the steam and the lights.
It was quite a party! These next few just scratch the surface:
During a showdown on the dancefloor:
Congrats Ria and John!! Thanks for sharing your day with us!!
Brandi - Stunning! Gorgeous couple, love the church and great work!
Ria + John - Clifford,
Truly extraordinary work. We had some pretty high expectations of your work, but you’ve exceeded even those. We especially like the portraits outside the rotunda, and the dance-off pic!
Throughout our wedding day, we felt so comfortable and at ease with your easygoing, unobstrusive work style. The portrait session gave us some needed respite from a hectic day, and we were able to spend quiet, quality time together. It is a priceless service you do capturing these once in a lifetime moments so beautifully. Thank you again.
Alex - Very inspiring work, Clifford! I see the couple loved it too. And then again, how could they not?!
Nancy - Omg. Ms.Fresnoza you look so cute!!!!!!!!!
