am i really going to post photos of my cat…um sadly yes.
she is our ‘orange slice of heaven’. circa, oh how we adore you. obsessed with you to be more accurate. the sun sets and rises on circa. we treasure her. she has attended the finest schools on ‘cuddling’ yet she has never mastered it. we have a short ‘snuggle’ window and then someone is likey to be bitten. we understand and attribute many of her characteristics to her being ‘spawned from a tiger’.
so behold ‘circa’ ( aka beana, bean-baylin, beanzelle washington, little arew, arewbenstein, areuben, rabbit paws, creme brule’, orangina, orange gift, orange fluff, pumpkin spice, and steve gutenberg )
leonie and rich…what more could you ask for in life ? super cute, fun and uber fit. they met swimming ( rich would not get into his speedo for some odd reason )
they love their house and their dog so that is where we started. good times…yeah…good times:
leonie ( or tia leonie as i call her ) sent me the kudo’s she received from her friends and family. WOW ! what kind words. i wondered if i should post them. i figured i would:
“The coolest I have ever seen.”
“Those pics were amazing! You both look beautiful”
“Those are the best engagement pictures I’ve ever seen! You guys are so GQ!! What a great pair you too are!!”
“WOW!!!! They are great!!!! Really promising!! You both look like professional models! You guys seem to have made a good choice with this photographer. I love the style, amazingly good and fun…”
“I LOVE THEM!! You guys look so great and so much fun – I would want to be your friend if I didn’t know you. Also, I love the one where Henry’s jumping. I really like the ones where you guys are sort of serious too – you look like models.”
“Loved the video – you guys are super photogenic!!! Super pictures, you look so happy together. Life is GREAT!”
“The slide show was fantastic! I think she did a great job of capturing how much fun the two of you have together. Now, which picture are you going to get framed?”
“Just watched it…so good! You make me smile!”
“I am speechless! You both are so photogenic – you should be models. Looks like you and the photographer were having a lot of fun. The photos look very natural and not posed!”
“That is the coolest slideshow. Indeed you had SO much fun and picked such great settings. I think you could enter some of those in a contest or something. Very clever. It’s important to keep having fun in your marriage… I think you’ll be reminded whenever you look at these photos.”
“Thanks for sharing your pictures–they’re great! The two of you look so happy and like you’re having so much fun. 🙂 It’s so funny you included your tandem in some of the photos–very Rionie!”
“I love photography…., I can tell she photoshopped them on the color and did an amazing job!! What is her name so I can look her up. We can’t afford it right now but I would like to one day.”
“BEAUTIFUL!!!! Those are some amazing photos!!! You are looking FIERCE in the black and white doorway pics!! You could be a model!~~~
congrats and much love”
“These are GREAT!!! Did it take all weekend long to take these photos??? Must be over 50 photos…. So many poses, faces, expressions, EXCELLENT!”
here is their SLIDESHOW
terri and dave, oh how i wanted to shoot their wedding when they interviewed me. come on ? how many people have the song ‘punk rock girl’ at their ceremony. i loved their flare for the funky. i was THRILLED to be the one chosen to capture this off beat crowd.
so as we were starting to shoot the girls..A FULL ON POLICE CHASE came racing through frasinetti’s winery. one siren blaring cop car after the next. just whipping through that small space. all i could think about was my car getting hit. after 7-8 cars blazed through, everything went back to peace and love. their wedding was just perfect. as you can see they had a great time:
here is their fun SLIDESHOW
i for one think there should be WAY more tuesday weddings. this one had so very many good things about it : it was on a tues, it was 4 minutes from my house at crawfords barn , one of my very best friends rachelle from rachelle photography shot it with me and THE COUPLE ! teresa and ed were such a kind, generous, thoughtful couple. i was amazed at how cool they were throughout the entire process. i felt so blessed to be a part of their special day. the photos ROCKED :
o.k so now i am officially obessed with blogging as well as my slideshows. i agonize for HOURS picking the right songs. it is only fair that you watch their SLIDESHOW 6 or 7 times ? come on, this needs to be give and take people !
i felt instant love for jodie and mike. these two are the whole package. after having so much fun on their engagement photos i am so excited for their oct. wedding. very vendor jodie has LOVES her. what a delightful couple !

alex…come on. is there anyone cuter on earth. it was such an honor to do her senior pics. i have known her for 5 years and have watched her grow into such a beauty. i love this kid !
her session was so crazy good. we had a BLAST !
serially, melissa and chris were so ‘chill’ for their march wedding at arden hills. everything ran so smoothly due to their easy going nature. i just loved this wedding. the villa’s at arden hills is such a great location ! i want to post 45 photos from this wedding because i LOVE so many of their photos… but i will be cool and stick to a bakers dozen.
smokin’ hot marianne and ryan. they are the cutest couple, such style ! ! my friend shannon from FLOURISH is doing marinanne’s flowers for her sept. wedding. we both LOVE marianne and are super excited for her wedding. these two have ‘flava’ ! fine, don’t take my word for it…see for yourself:
oh like you never stole a photo idea from sarah maren
it seems to me the security guard at this location’s sole purpose is to tell me to not stand people on this platform. he loves to tell me ‘this is private property’. sorry, but it is a great shot i need to get
if after a taste of honey you now want the whole jar, here is their SLIDESHOW. yay !!!
oh my beloved stephanie and jake….i just adore them. what a fun amazing couple. we had a blast during their engagments. i was so excited to show them these photos, they turned out so great !!! their wedding is june 26th, so more to come from this stunning couple:
see what i mean !! what a great couple ! if you need more of this couple ( no reason to feel ashamed, we all do ) here is their extra cool SLIDESHOW
morgan and chip…pure CLASS ! their wedding was so perfect. i loved how they kept it simple. i so enjoyed working with these two !
they choose the old sugar mill ( man alive i LOVE this location ) so many gritty photo opts:
morgan was such a stunning bride, she had such an elegance to her. again with the classy !
you would never guess it was FREEZING on their wedding day, they HAD to huddle together just for survival.
they choose the coolest part of the old sugar mill for their ceremony, super arty ! i LOVED this background.
the guy on the right did not appreciate me telling him he looked like peter brady ( i had to explain i was old and peter brady was the zac efron of my time )
sac town catering did the most amazing job with the food and matt and jared from matthew allen wedding & events were the perfect d.j’s as usual
i feel so blessed to have been a part of morgan and chip’s special day. so very thankful they choose me to capture their day.
check out their super cool SLIDESHOW
photos with heart and soul
