VALKERIE ( that is my nick name for her ) really it is Valerie and Alex. What a super couple !
This gal had a vision, and a sexy one to boot. She wanted something a bit different from the norm.
We went to the Citizen hotel ( a dream location ) where she is getting married the october. Um, can you say HOT ! Such an amazing shoot.
After we headed over to the park to do some more photos with their kids. Lurve this family. It does not get much better than this:
There are moments in my life when I step back and think ‘ I AM ONE LUCKY DUCK ‘. This has happened several times when shooting for Sacramento Magazine. Really a dream come true.
This is the third time I have shot miss Tina Macuha of CBS 13. Having grown up in Sacramento I feel like I have known her all my life. I love this lady ! I felt honored when she requested me to do this shoot. One can not imagine all the pain and stress she has been through, yet she was still her fun, warm, kind, giving and up-beat self. And…she did lay in a dirty field while wearing a white shirt ( that is the kind of gal she is ).
I LOVE the photo they picked. Just perfect !
Tina has SUCH a beautiful smile, it was so hard to do this shoot with a serious look.
AROUND THE BEND :
And then Dave Bender from CBS 13 was a blast. How lucky were we to get these Giraffes to co-operate like this. Good times……Good times !
I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS WEDDING ! Really, we had so many factors going for us …the fact that the bride and groom are redonk good looking, the great light and backgrounds and AN AMAZING BRIDAL PARTY.
Here is the teaser :
More of the awesome-ness awaits you, here is their SLIDESHOW
This wedding was at the Berghold Winery, my beloved Shannon ‘nonnie butter’ from Flourish did the flowers and the always amazing Shana Beals did the make-up.
I will post LOADS more images later : )
I know…. again with the ‘it was the perfect wedding’ and ‘ I am madly in love with the bride and groom’…but ITS TRUE, ALL TRUE. I had such a bond with Stephanie and Jake. Super cute, fun, easy to get along with, happy and in love !
Stephanie was all about the photos and planned her day so we could get some amazing shots. And it worked. She got married at St. Anthonys Church in Walnut Grove and had her reception at the Grand Island Mansion. Such a beautiful venue and the food is always so good ( the big bowl of chocolaut sauce does not hurt ).
My super cool and talented friend Rachelle shot this wedding with me, Rachelle ‘re co-co’…have I told you lately that I loved you?
What I LOVED most about this bride was her big laugh. Loads of stunning images from this special day:
Here is their SLIDESHOW
Fun fact : Stephanie is wearing her mom’s veil
O.k maybe i have’nt told Christy and Jon as often as I should…but I freakin’ love these two kids. Their wedding was THE BEST. The wedding images are under wraps for a bit as it will be featured in ‘ Real Weddings’ magazine.
So here is their engagement session we did in Clarksburg where Jon grew up. Good times….good times:
