    I create pictures that tell stories...your stories. I love hearing my clients stories and I can't wait to talk with you about what stories we will create together. Please take a few minutes to look through my work and get to know my style.

    I love being around people; so babies, children and adults are all my favorite subjects. I love documenting people’s lives. Animated and Spontaneous people? I love them. Most of all, I love taking emotional pictures; the ones that give me the goosebumps while taking them behind the camera. Through this process, I also learn new things about life as well ...about love, passion, friendship, and what makes people tick and sets them alive. So, it can be said that I do take Photography pretty seriously.

Fun SF Engagement Session with Tessa and Dynaton

Tessa and Dynaton met while they were in highschool and they quickly became high school sweethearts. After a few years of courting, finally decided to tie a knot at a beautiful Casa Bella in Sunol, a beautiful location locate in Sunol on the East Bay. When I first met them, I knew right away that these 2 kind and good looking people were meant for each other. They always show up with their best smiles and positive attitude. For their Engagement Session, they chose San Francisco and we started at the mustard field next to their apartment and then we headed down to the mission area. We spent a few hours there and then we proceeded to the Presidio’s Lovers Lane. It was such a pleasure photographing this two lovebirds because they are so easy going. Here are some of my favorite images which they use as part of their Guest Sign in Book for their Wedding.

Luiza and Alcindo – Elopement at San Jose County Clerk Office

\In my experience as a San Jose Wedding Photographer, I always love photographing elopement at San Jose County Clerk Office or San Francisco City Hall. I love these Elopement because they are intimate Weddings, attended by a small number of guests Often by the parents and close member of family of the Bride and Groom. However, it can be challenging for a Photographer because usually the ceremony usually happens so fast and only last for about 10 minutes. I love these challenges so I have to work carefully, efficiently and plan my shots before hand.

I was contacted by Alcinto and Luiza a few days before his Wedding at the San Jose Clerk Office. I met with the couple and Luiza’s parents who flew over from Brazil to witness their daughter’s Wedding. Since the parent’s English are limited, the B&G (bride and groom) had to translate for me but it was pretty easy to photograph them because they were so easy going and they are so in love. We started the coverage with taking a few pictures at the backyard before entering the Wedding Chapel. As I expected, the Wedding lasts about 8 minutes and here are my favorite images. So if you are looking for a Photographer to capture your Elopement at the San Jose Country Clerk Recording Office, please contact me via email at sessions@harrywhophotography.com. I would love to hear from you. Thank you for visiting my blog.

Sarah and Jason – Silver Creek Country Club Wedding

I posted Sarah and Jason’s fun engagement pictures in San Francisco on my blog here and in September they finally had their Silver Creek Country Club Wedding. We started the day documenting their getting ready at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. Since the day schedule is full we did the first look at the promenade of the Fairmont Hotel.
Then we are ready for the Fall Outdoor Ceremony, and the weather can’t be better. The ceremony was full of tears and laughter. In the middle of the ceremony, the couple heard the pastor said Boom Boom so they kissed. It was so funny, and I managed to catch them on the camera kissing. You can see that down below. The reception was very fun and full of laughters and tears as well. I really enjoyed photographing their Wedding and I love spontaneous people. Hope you enjoyed the images and let me know if you have any questions about my Wedding Photography. I can easily be reached by email at sessions@harrywhophotography.com or phone at (408) 209 5133

Sarah and Jason – SF Fun Engagement Session

Jason and Sarah hired me as their Wedding Photographer through my Wedding Clients, Daniel and Monica. It proves to you that the words of mouth are the best form of advertisement, and that is why as a Photographer I thrive on giving my clients the best service. In fact, Daniel and Monica has recommended me to another couple. Thanks Daniel and Monica.
Now back to Jason and Sarah. 🙂 For their Engagement Session, they would like to bring their 3 dogs to the session, so we divided the 5 hours session into 2 sessions. Lake Vasona is the perfect location for the first session for the couple and their 3 dogs. For the 2nd session they opt for a SF Fun Engagement Session. We went to the Mission Area and then head back to the Palace of Fine Art. Please check out the images from their Engagement Session below. If you have any questions or inquiries about having me as your Photographer for your Wedding, please contact me via my website: www.harrywhophotography.com.
