Wedgewood Redwood Canyon Castro Valley Wedding
My favorite laughs are those that come from deep within. One that isn’t afraid to be seen or heard – it is just unapologetically joyful. This is what made me fall in love with my amazing couple, Kristin & John. Their smiles and their laughs are so genuine, so one of a kind, so beautiful, that they can light up an entire room. I was so honored to witness them and their loved ones enjoy the most wonderful day together at their Wedgewood Redwood Canyon wedding in Castro Valley.
Although the day started out bright and sunny, it sadly took a turn for the worst right before the ceremony. The wind picked up, the clouds rolled in, and the temperature dropped. But you would never know from the photos that it was anything but a beautiful day- full of love, smiles, and warm affection. Kristin and John gathered their closest friends and family to watch them tie the knot in a beautiful outdoor venue, complete with its own little private bridge and towering foliage that made the ceremony feel private and peaceful. The reception was a lovely indoor space filled with white and pink accents and the most amazing donut tower table.
To Kristin & John: It was truly such an honor to photograph you two, your families, and your friends on your wedding day. I’ve never seen such a joyful, beautiful group! It’s so evidently clear just how much you two are loved and how supportive the people you surround yourselves with are. I won’t forget your amazing first dance – complete with the most beautiful twirls and a stunning dip and kiss at the end. Or your shared first donut as husband and wife! I am so excited to see your future unfold together as husband and wife. If it is anything like your wonderful engagement period and the amazing things you two accomplished together then, then you have a blessed path ahead of you! Thank you again for allowing me to capture your love story. Congrats on becoming the most beautiful husband & wife!!

“Highly recommend Corinna as your wedding photographer! Corinna was an amazing photographer to work with and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We found her through Instagram and really liked her style. From the moment we booked her, she was very diligent in sending us reminders to helping us stay on top of the schedule up to the big day.
We did an engagement shoot with her in San Francisco. She arrived early to scope out the place to ensure we captured a beautiful backdrop and the right lighting. During our shoot, she really helped my fiancé (now husband) and I get comfortable in front of the camera with suggested poses and really let us forget that we were in front of a camera. She’s very personable, easy to communicate with, and talented. Time flew by so quickly and the pictures turned out great!
Fast forward to our wedding day, it was hectic but Corinna and her assistant kept us on track at all times and was really calm. We received our wedding photos in an extremely quick turnaround time and we just can’t stop looking at them! Her pictures captured “more than a thousand words” and captured all the most important details during our wedding. We felt so lucky to share our special day with her! She delivers and won’t disappoint- Corinna should be your go to wedding photographer!”
