Almond Tree Blossom | Sacramento Family Photographer - Michelle Chang Photography

This post is long overdue!  The beautiful almond tree blossom bloomed late February this year, and because of all the rain we were getting, it was very difficult to schedule a family session.  We visited the farm in early March and were very lucky to catch the last bit of almond tree flowers!

I had to pleasure to be the second photographer on 4/22/17 for my friend Elina from Elina Rose Photography.  This wedding started at the Northbrae community church in Berkeley, it was a beautiful church with lots of greeneries.  After the ceremony, we moved to the Lake Merrit in Oakland where the bride and groom had some nice alone time riding the gondola.  We were able to photograph the last bit of their romantic ride.

San Francisco Wedding Photographer - Bridal Photo Session

I met up with Cassandra from Cassandra McClure a few weeks ago for this bridal inspired shoot.  I love what she did with Mica's hair and makeup, the very clean and simple updo made our bride looking very classy. Her subtle sunkissed eye makeup worked well with the rosy lip color.  The beautiful emerald ring is from Susie Saltzman and the dress from BCBG.

San Jose Wedding Photographer - Ardenwood Historic Farm

I had the pleasure to work with a team of talented vendors at the Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont, California just before the spring season started.  My good friend Jessica Shortt, who is also a great photographer had the vision of a romantic elopement in a barn setting, and we were so lucky Ardenwood Historic Farm opened their arms to us for this shoot.  It was the perfect venue for what we had prepared for this shoot.

San Jose wedding photographer - Spring garden inspired photoshoot

I can't believe how much rain we are receiving here in California!  Although it is good to fix the drought situation that's been around for several years, I have to say "I miss the sunshine!"  I can't wait for the sun to come out again so I can create more beautiful images with talented wedding vendors.
