Omg, Allison of ‘Jeff and Allison’ was just the dream bride of all nations. Miss Allison works at one of my favorite places 3-Fold Communications which is just about the hippest company on earth. She booked me over the phone and tole me she only had one request : NO STRESS. I LOVED that about her, she knew what she wanted did not feel to need to adhere to old traditions. Upon meeting Jeff I was instantly smitten, he is the kind of person you want to hang out with for the rest of your life. They were greatest couple to work with, so fun, relaxed and full of life and love ! Their photos truly reflect the ‘ no stress’ feel of the day. I say ‘have it your way on your special day’ gals.
Their wedding was at Capital Park and The California History Museum ( the coolest venue EVERRRRRRR ). They snagged the amazing and talented Visual Impact as their florist ( I am a huge fan ) and the Super COOL ‘In the mix 96 as their d.j’. Great vendors make for a great day !
Try looking at their photos and not thinking ‘ life is good’… I dare you : )
Allison’s sister was super preggo : )

When I work with the lovely and talented Lora Ward from A Day to Remember, we call it ‘ A day of TRUE LOVE to remember’. Lora or ‘L.w’ and I go WAYYYYYYY back. Many times when working with her, I stop and notice all the MANY special touches she does for a wedding, She is your ‘O.G’ coordinator, time after time working with Lora I see her put her heart and soul into a wedding, it is truly her passion.
This home wedding in Orangevale, was STUNNING, SO many awesome details, such beauty and joy everywhere you turned. Becca and Dustin were just about the cutest human beings to ever roam the earth, just an absolutely precious couple. They were madly in love and so happy to be married ! Their families were the BEST. Their cakes by Carissa from Sugar and Spice Speciality Desserts was a work of art. If you are lucky enough to have Doug and Dara of Music on the Move as your D.j’s, you have totally SCORED, they are just the greatest to work with. GORGEOUS PHOTOS of this special couples special day !!! This photo brings joy to deep inside my soul, super cool and just plain weird all at the same time. I love these magic moments : )

Actually sun, clouds, wind, and rain. This wedding had it ALL ! It was so crazy awesome the way we got every kind of weather imaginable. It even sprinkled a bit during their out door ceremony, but then we got our beloved sun. It made for and exciting day and uber cool pics !
When Deanna and Jason met with me to talk about their big day, I appeared to be calm and collected, but inside I was shouting ‘ PICK ME PICK ME’. I REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLY wanted to do their wedding. Such a sweet and vivacious couple. I knew we would tear it up with their photos ( mission accomplished ! ) My Favorite part about the day was the emotion on Jason’s face as Deanna walked down the isle. Priceless !
Everyone LOVES working at the Vizcaya, add one of my favorite d.j’s MIKE from Creative memories, and creative and energetic Joan ‘ Cone’ from Beautiful By Nature ( a.k.a Naughty by Nature ) and we were just golden. Mike’s up-lighting is a photographers best friend and the folks at the ‘viz’ sure know how to run a wedding. Great job everyone !
Madly deeply and desperately in love with this photos am I
Great shot from my second shooter Michelle !
Are you kidding me ? Three cherries, home run, cha ching ! Mama LIKES !

Also adorable and yummie.. the subjects for my latest assignments for my beloved Sacramento Magazine. As usual I was thrilled to have gotten such cool assignments. I LOVE getting a slice of peoples lives via photographing them. Jamie Jones, the local actress in the play Shear Madness was sheer joy.
Our very own BEAUTY QUEEN, the reining Miss Sacramento, Shaline DeGuzman was sunshine on a rainy day, just so full of life and light. A dream subject.
and our very own naturalist, Tracy, touched our hearts with her warmth and over all coolness ( and she taught us a thing or two about animal poo ). A mondo thanks to the super cool Stephanie Smith for loaning me ‘two cute blond girls’ in such short notice.
Here are the images the magazine ran:
