custom portraits and wedding photography with an award winning gallery in livermore serving pleasanton, san ramon, danville, dublin and the san francisco bay area
Nearly a year’s worth of planning and preparation has paid off. We’re truly thankful for everyone that had a hand in making our grand re-opening a success. A ribbon cutting by the Livermore Chamber of Commerce kicked off an evening filled with family, friends and fun while we got to show off our new studio to the public. More than 200 people visited our new studio with an awesome amount of energy that is still resonating within our walls.
A heap of thanks to Arcsine Architecture for their masterful work in creating a blueprint for the overall design. They are true visionaries who captured our wildest dreams and ideas and brought them all to life in our new home. Also, we couldn’t have done anything quite as amazing without John Daley of Level Contracting Services, the general contractor whose hard work can be summed up as nothing short of stellar. And in case you need these services, they also do residential projects too (John Daley remodeled Anna’s parents kitchen). And of course to the multitude of friends and family who pitched in to build this dream.
From a business standpoint, our move made sense in many ways, most importantly, the larger space accommodates our growing clientele and puts us in a position of controlling costs and keeping our prices low. Essentially, more space + controlled costs for us = keeping costs low for our clients without sacrificing the quality of our work.
Actually, our creativity and quality is rising through the roof. As artists we couldn’t be more anxious to showcase the inspiration provided by our new space. It allows for endless creativity through dozens of new backdrops and lighting possibilities. Descriptions through words hardly do it justice so if you haven’t seen our new studio yet come on in and check it out. If you have seen it then you understand why we’re so excited and inspired by our fabulous new digs.
And we can’t forget the winners of the Name that Backdrop contest (winners receive a custom 11×14 canvas):

Jose M. – The Red Room
Jennifer W. – Grand Salon
Gianna C. – Paris Morning

I’m sharing a very special wedding with you all today. I was so excited when I heard two of my grade school friends announced their engagement and I was completely honored when they asked me to be their wedding photographer. They are two of the most genuine and beautiful people I’ve ever met and they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. It was so wonderful to work with a couple having known them and their entire history. It made for a truly amazing wedding. I love you guys and wish you all the best!
We are finally at home in our new gallery, and our new gallery has a new home for the current Featured Portrait. We are excited about showcasing our clients awesome photos in a huge way in our gallery…will your portrait be next?
APRIL FEATURE PORTRAIT – The Michael Family
We are so fortunately to have photographed the Michael family since they started their family. When Carrie told us about her idea to reveal the gender of their soon-to-come new addition, we were super excited. This portrait really tells their family story, from the face-crinkler to the nose-picker, thank goodness for Carrie they are now expecting a GIRL! But I’m sure the pink balloons gave that away.
We encourage the creativity of our clients and really enjoy the uniqueness of each portrait session. If you have ideas for your next photoshoot, please share and let’s make something wonderful!
Oh and did I mention, that field is just steps away from our new studio? If you haven’t visited us yet, you’ve just gotta drop by!
