Joy and Jonathan chose me to shoot their wedding.  It was a gorgeous event at the Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia , California.  It has been given awards for the restoration to its pre-Civil War grandeur.  From the outdoor ceremony site, to the reception in the beautiful white tent adorned with chandeliers, this is one of the most unique venues I've had the privilege to photograph. 

Only a place this unique would be suitable for Joy and Jonathan.  They are talented people whose love for each other was undeniable.  I caught so many photographs of them just being in the moment with each other. 

I was so fortunate to not only shoot their wedding, but get to know them.  You will not find two nicer people.

Below are some of my favorites from the day. (including one of the funniest images I've ever captured in my career :) )

Congratulations Joy and Jonathan!

Van Selow Sneak Peek

Saturday I got to shoot the wedding of Joy and Johnathan.  This new couple got married at the Historic Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia, CA.  This is such a unique venue that lent itself to gorgeous outdoor ceremony to an elegant reception in a permanent large white tent on the side of the Mansion.  Joy and Johnathan met at another wedding I was attending.  I had brought my camera to that wedding (because I can't help myself).  They happened to see those photos and found me that way.  I'm so glad they did.  A really wonderful couple who, as you can see in this one (of many) images, was so in love.

Congratulations Joy and Johnathan!  I'm honored to have captured your very special day.
