yes, i AM becoming quite the self absorbed blogger ! i find myself LOVING being able to show off a few photos from each wedding.
so i do not know what love to tell about with this one…my love for jennifer or the love story of jennifer and steven. she was the most last minute booking of all time in all nations. we literally met THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING. it was so cute, i told them i hoped they liked me at that point because i was all they had.
these two…sunshine covered in love, sprinkled with joy and dipped in happiness. they met on-line in a ‘dungenon and dragons’ chat room…not really, it was world of war craft chat room. how adorable is that ? jennifer is an artist and steven is going to medical school. they wanted a simple beautiful backyard wedding and that is just what they had.
can i tell you how much i enjoyed shooting them. the whole adventure was so mellow and easy. i bribed my good friend andrea ‘dr. drea’ to come with me. man can that girl shoot. it was 107 that day but we beat most of the heat by starting early in hte day with just the two of them, taking them around the city of davis. life is good…see for yourself:
please to enjoy their sexy, fun, happy and colorful SLIDESHOW
oh my love for summer….summer grande that is. i also adored her super cute husband, randy. what a happy and fun couple they were.
when summer and her grandmother came to interview me to shoot this wedding i was touched by their relationship. her grandmother was so very adorable, helping summer to have the wedding of her dreams.
their wedding was just what they wanted, relaxed and classic. they had ‘rat pack’ music and passed h’ourderves from sactown catering. the weather and atmosphere at scribner bend was delightful. these two are just about to close on a new home and start their new lives. i just loved them both so very much!
the super cute girls from vip-cat were in the house doing awesome hair and make-up. love them !
i picked this artichoke with my bare hands and ate it raw right then and there ( kidding )
i always love sactown catering, brianna is a dreamboat
flowers by bella blooms
hair and make-up by vip-cat
say YES to viewing the fun and happy SLIDESHOW
allison and craig, these two are just pure love and light. i felt so honored when they choose me to be their photographer. this is what love looks like people. one just felt happy just being around these two. their love, their faith, their spirits, just lovely !
so we had dreams of shooting in the many open fields of flowers around the church that day, but mother nature had other ideas. freakin’ RAIN ! and non-stop rain, not one break in it all day. so we worked the church’s awning like nobodies business. finally at the end we just went to the open field and got wet : )
as you can see, these two are the real deal. i just loved them so much, i am hoping to spend every holiday with them from now until the end of time ( kidding )
see THEIR SUPER AWESOME SLIDESHOW
amazing food and flowers and general fab-ness SIMPLE PLEASURES
i was so fortunate to be able to shoot lila reyna, the writer of ‘quiet mind, warrior spirit’. brandy hart ureel of hart and soul studios/marketing was the ultimate art director for this super fun shoot. our goal….to capture her soul. i lurve this kind of shoot ! we started at her house in neveda city where we tapped into her ‘quiet mind’ side with the beautiful wilderness, and even got to hold her baby bunnies. then went downtown and ended at the martial art school she owns . this woman could kick and kick ass. the images were just what we wanted, to show the many sides of lila:
kristen r…oh how i adore this kid. this is our third shoot, so she feels like my niece at this point. i mean, come on, how freakin’ beautiful is this kid ? and inside and out too. very easy going and fun to be around. she loved modeling and has an interest in photography, so we were just meant to go and get images like this. this was her birthday present. i felt honored that she choose a session with me as her #1 gift:
photos with heart and soul
