Vacaville Wedding Photographer | Lilliana + Reyes | Northern California Wedding Photographer

For my first wedding back in Northern California, I had the pleasure of capturing Lilliana and Reyes on their wedding day!   Two people…SO-IN-LOVE!  I love shooting in downtown Vacaville.  There are so many different textures and options!   The wedding and reception were at the Vacaville Opera House.  I can not say enough good things about this place.  Everyone was so kind and easy to work with and the setup had a great flow to it.

We did almost all of our portraits after the ceremony, but we did have some time with Reyes and his awesome groomsmen before.  That is when we got some of these shots:

Photo booths are always fun, but “Just Grin & Share It” is amazing!  The owners, Jeff and Janelle were so friendly and helpful!  I highly recommend their company if you are looking for a photo booth.

And last but not least, the flowers were done by “Stems“.  Perfection.

I am so happy to be back.  Being a Northern California Wedding Photographer is the best!

Vacaville Family Photographer | Last Hawaii Family Session

So this is it…the last session that I shot in Hawaii.  I do have some other sessions that will pop up in the future, that I shot while I was also teaching Kindergarten last year,  but for now let’s focus on this adorable family.  Mom was a teacher at Hickam Elementary with me and we waited  for the last possible moment to photograph them.  I think Dad needed some talking into…but that is nothing out of the ordinary:)  I am so glad the opportunity did not pass us by.  We headed down to Chinatown for a quick session early in the morning and captured these fantastic shots!

Wendy Z is now booking and shooting photography sessions in Fairfield and Vacaville California.  If you are in the Northern California area and need a photographer…do not hesitate to contact me!  I am so happy to be back here after 3 years away!

Fairfield, California Family Photographer | A Blustery Morning at Lanikai Beach

As I work my way through the sessions I had at the very end of our time in Hawaii, I find myself missing the harsh sunlight and crazy winds.  Okay, I don’t really miss those two things, but I do miss this family.  It was such a joy to have one of these adorable little guys in my Kindergarten class last year.  It made this family photo session all that more special to me.  Ugh, as I was editing I just wanted to jump through my computer screen and hug all of these guys.

We headed to Lanikai Beach and tried really hard to dodge the raindrops during this session.  Even though the weather didn’t cooperate we captured some pretty spectacular shots.  I am pretty sure their lives are revolving similar to this first photo at this stage of their lives.  You ROCK motherhood Kristi!!  Miss you all!

I would love to photograph your Family, High School Senior, Children or Wedding.  If you are looking for a Vacaville, California photographer or a Fairfield, California Photographer…I am BACK… and now booking in your area!!  Click the “Email Me” tab at the top of this page!

Family Memories | Vacaville California Family Photographer

I am so excited to get started photographing families here in Northern California, but first I have unfinished business in Hawaii.  I love photographing families and this one was no exception!  The session was sweet, relaxed and just plain cute!  They were very patient waiting for their images during my move and I thank them for that!  I think it was worth the wait.  What do you think?

I would love to photograph your Family, High School Senior, Children or Wedding.  If you are looking for a Vacaville, California photographer or a Fairfield, California Photographer…I am BACK… and now booking in your area!!
