Angel and Eric met up with us a couple weeks before their wedding for their engagement session! We chose San Jose because we knew the weather would be perfect and we would be away from the SF cold and fog. It was a perfect day at the Japanese Tea Garden and next door historical site that displays what the “old town” was like back in the day. I knew the ice cream shop would be the perfect stop for some photos, as well as, the cool walls, blown glass windows, and awesome doors!
Angel wore a beautiful Sari and Eric wore his formal military uniform. Eric served two tours in Iraq and I am so thankful for his service to our country. Even though Angel and Eric come from different cultures they are perfect for one another. As a reminder, I have a half American and half Indian background myself so photographing fusion weddings is always special to me. I think about how their children will grow up relating to both cultures and will look back at these images and love to see their parents looked before and on their wedding day!
For the Japanese Tea Garden we did something more casual and I love the color blue Angel chose for her dress. We had a great mix of sunlight shots, open shade, and and rim lighting in the park. We are excited to share the wedding photos here on the blog next week so stay tuned for more!!!
