sandy + john | cathedral basilica of saint joseph | the decathlon club | san jose | wedding

Sandy and John had a beautiful ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph, one of the most gorgeous churches that I've shot at.  Sandy and John are both easy on the eyes and have had actual experience modeling.  Beyond all this though, the thing that left the greatest impression on me was the fact that their friends really respected and admired them for who they are.  John has a heart of gold and when you're around him you really do get the feeling that he's looking out for your best interest.  Sandy is a super sweet and gentle spirit.  They're like disgustingly blessed with so much it's almost unfair.  

FACT: We took so many pictures at this wedding that we filled up 80Gbs of compact flash memory cards, the most ever!  Yes, our cameras couldn't get enough of the ridiculously good looking couple.
