So you get your soul mate *CHECK* Then you get your date *CHECK* Then…….. YOU GET OVERWHELMED with the 1000+ things to do and 5 of them are urgent.  Then you get some help! A bride told me about this site so I wanted to do a blog post on it because I think brides, […]

I loved this wedding! (which I know I say a ton..but it’s true!) I was given the opportunity to meet an amazing couple who love breweries as much as, probably more than, I do! A super fun bonus was that I also traveled up to Northern California and visited The Falls Elk Grove. The brick […]

Capturing this proposal was so much fun for me because it was MY BROTHER asking his best friend to be Official Forever!   So Eric first asked if I’d be interested in photographing his proposal SO of course I said yes (in a very uncool shrieking type of way).  And then came the “well how […]

If I could explain these two in one word, it would be Playful. Throughout the whole day we were laughing and just having fun. Well, part of that could have been the fact that we were at Disneyland.   But, when you have a groom who says his bride’s top quality is that she’s just as […]

Jeff and Danielle are an energetic, fiercely loyal couple of kids in love.  They wanted their wedding to be fun and memorable and it was exactly that. The theme was vintage, fun and Top Gun! The couple’s unique venue and classic vibes plus a lot of dancing, made this wedding ‘one for the books’! Their […]

This bride and groom are all about family and every part of their nuptials showed that. From their first look to the ceremony, family is clearly at the center of their lives. This relaxed yet glamorous, shabby chic affair took place at Secluded Garden Estates surrounding their close friends and family with lush, green, wine […]

First looks are becoming more and more popular every year, and every one has a reason why to do it or not to.  I was married back in 2009 and did a first look because for us it was right and the better option.  So from a personal look, not a photographer’s view point, here […]

  Alec and Veronica are an amazing couple.  The type you know God set aside for each other. Alec threw a surprise birthday party for Veronica, with the help of her family of course.  Then it also became their engagement party as he gathered everyone around for a toast, thanking them all for coming, then […]

This was such a special wedding for me to be a part of. Kristen is one of my closest friends, and I have prayed for a man like Nathan to enter her life for a long time. The day started at their family ranch with Kristen, a few other close friends, her daughters, soon to […]
