Adolfo & Claudia | Imagine Heaven Here | Oakdale Wedding Photo & Video Teaser

Sep 11, 2018

Adolfo and Claudia have been married for twenty-five years. Although they have been through a lot of trials and hard times in their lives, the testimonies from their friends, family, and daughters was what brought this day to be memorable and special for the Alan family. In front of God, family, and friends, Adolfo and Claudia wanted to renew their marriage vows to one another as a commitment to one another for many more years down the road.

Planning Ahead for Imagine Heaven Here

I was contacted by one of Adolfo’s groomsmen, Ty, about covering the photography and videography for his friend’s wedding. There was some back and forth a bit before I was able to make contact with Adolfo himself. We talked about the planning and made sure that we were the right fit for what he and his wife were looking for. There were major benefits that they didn’t realize we had included: arranging the timeline.

A couple of weeks before the wedding, I met with both Adolfo and Claudia in person for the first and went over their timeline that I created based on a questionnaire that they filled out. They had came to the meeting saying that they tried making a timeline the other night and couldn’t figure out how in the world they were going to fit everything they wanted in short timeframe. I showed them what I had created and answered any questions that had. There was a huge sigh of relief from both sides.

Excited to share more photos and the full highlight film later on, so don’t forget to register for their online gallery below and check out the teaser video of the day!

 Adolfo and Claudia married 25 years ago, but decided to renew their vows and have a real wedding in Oakdale, CA near Historical Knights Ferry at the Closer to Heaven venue ran by Christian volunteers.
