Thomas & Courtney | Canyon View | San Ramon Wedding Photography
July 2015. They met in 7th grade, became high school sweethearts, dating for years and marrying on a lovely July Saturday. Best friends marrying each other. The wedding was most sincere witnessed by 250 family and friends. A repeating theme throughout the wedding was Courtney & Thomas' gratefulness to everyone that influenced them.
I first connected with Courtney and Thomas last July, and we met at a local Starbucks. We hit it off immediately...a commonality was that Thomas and my neighbor (on my street who I would have probably not met unless of an emergency situation) was Thomas's boss's dad and they all work for the Oakland Raiders. During the next 12 months, we exchanged many emails about wedding details and I got to know them. I also photographed their engagement photos, see here and here.
I have the most intimate role on their wedding day. My assistant and I are with Courtney and Thomas - in their most vulnerable time of their lives - for most of their wedding day. Thank you Courtney and Thomas for inviting us into your lives, and allowing us to memorialize your most special day!
The groomsmen received signed authentic NFL helmets of their favorite team...very awesome!
Most sweetest father-daughter dance, and mother-son dance.
LOVE, enough said.
