Zack and Katharine are an AMAZING couple. Fun, respectful and most of all in love with each other. I saw this first during our engagement session. Zack cared for Katharine in such a visible and moving way. Just the way he helped her, the way he held her… You could just see it in his eyes…well you could see it in both of their eyes to be sure – the way they stared at each other and embraced. So awesome! Their wedding was held at the Sea Crest Resort in Pismo Beach. It’s a great venue and especially nice because it has beach access right down the back. The reception was at F. McClintocks just a few minutes away. Del from Entertainment Now was the DJ (he is a great DJ always there early; two sets of equipment – one for the ceremony – one for the reception – and he’ll take sound systems down on the beach when needed). The whole day was very very enjoyable thanks to Zack and Katharine’s great attitudes, their intimate wedding and great family and friends. It’s couples like this that make my job as a wedding and portrait photographer sweeeeeeeeet!
Well as usually there are way to many photographs that I want to share. But time and space limit me. So here are the ones that made the cut for one reason or another.
Katharine had a friend of hers do her make up. You’ll meet this friend’s cute poodle, who got to enjoy the wedding day as well, in a few pictures from now.
Every wedding I stumble across some amazing flowers. This one in particular caught my eye. Just look at it – isn’t it amazing all the wonderful things God created for us. Wow!

Sure there are lots of other pictures of Katharine and Zack, but the ones I like most and enjoy sharing are the ones that express real and sincere emotion. As I look at this picture of Katharine there is no doubt or question in my mind that her smile is legit! So real is her emotion in this photo that as I look at it I just can’t help from smiling! Katharine YOU have an amazing smile! San Luis Obispo Photographers
In the same way I really love this picture of Zack. Why? Because not only do I think he looks handsome in this picture, but more importantly this photograph captured one true aspect of who Zack is. He’s not trying to be a comedian, he’s not trying to crack some cheesy fake smile – he is just looking at the camera bearing one sincere aspect of his personality. As I see it, that is what my job as a san luis obispo photographer involves – to capture what is there – who you are as a person. I can’t produce something in you that is not already there. However, I can help bring out what is there. For that reason I smile at this photograph. It is sincerely Zack: serious, respectful, intelligent and kind.
In the course of a wedding day there are many moments that are posed…or at least where I “help people along” with an idea or two. However, it’s the shots that are purely natural and “photojournalistic” that more and more present more enjoyment and value to me as a San Luis Obispo photographer, like this one below.
Happy, happy, happy – the joy on their faces makes me happy!
Zack and his brother share a little moment of harassing each other….well…actually it was just Zack’s brother harassing him.
Kids, kids, kids….you just can’t beat photos of kids! Put a couple of kids on the beach and they are in an – “instant wonderland”!
This little guy definitely get’s cutest child of the day award. Heck – he might be up for the running of all of 2009.
Well, I can’t say I am a big fan of pets at weddings (usually the people are a handful enough to deal with – ha!). However, this little guy (or girl I’m not sure) sure looks content to be “chill’en” at the foot of his/her master.
One of my favorite genres of photographs are the simple gazes between the bride and groom. You can just see that love. Let’s call it the “love look” eh?
I had to jump very high to get this one. : ) Who says white men can’t jump.
Again, too many photos to be able to share as many as I would like on this blog. However, it’s the cute little look that both of them have for each other that got me on this one.
Me and my assistant had the honor of sitting with this couple and some other friends of Zack and Katharine’s. I can’t remember what was so funny, but whatever it is – this photograph is still bringing me happiness.
Priceless: The groom and his mother share a joyous moment.
I’m not sure I have ever seen parents of the bride or groom get out and shake it as much as Katherine’s did. Lots of fun!
Thanks Zack and Katharine – and may your relationship continue to be filled with joy, giving and love!
