Joe + Christine (Scotts Valley Hilton Wedding Photography)

I have an affinity for black hot rods (since I own one), so when Joe rolled up for his and Christine’s engagement session in his black corvette, I knew we’d get along just fine. We had a great time exploring the Los Gatos mountains around Belgatos Park, chasing the sun up the hill before it set on us.

When wedding day came, I heard the night before at the hotel had been pretty row-day, and the cops even made an appearance at one point. It all got worked out, though, and it probably didn’t hurt that Joe and many of his friends are some of San Jose’s finest. Great bunch of guys, I had a ton of fun with them. One of the things Joe and Christine’s wedding exemplified was the difference between girls getting ready and guys getting ready (you just have to click the links to understand).

The lovely couple also hold the record for the shortest ceremony ever – was it even five minutes? You could tell these guys just wanted to party with their friends and family – and I did my best not to hold them back in this regard. There was a ton of fun on the dance floor all night, and I had a great time enjoying the festivities along with everyone else. Here’s a slideshow of my faves from the day.
