THIS FUN AND COLORFUL SHOOT ! What a lovely collaboration of vendors. Shot at one of my favorite venues,
David Girard Vineyards, I loved the way the ladies at Mimi & Co Luxurious Linens pulled this whole thing together. Their intention for the shoot was to show off their beautiful linens, mission accomplished. My beloved Beth Sogaard from Beth Sogaard’s Catering created some incredible culinary delights, Super star cake artist Rebecca from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca made that fun cake, and the talented and effervescent Jajuan from Design with Florae’ did the florals. Much thanks to Celebrations Party Rentals for lending us their goods. Girl power all the way. This felt like a great way to brighten this cold rainy winter day and give all of the spring and summer brides some great colorful ideas :
Beth Sogaard looking super cute !
I just needed an excuse to use this blog title : ) Thanks so much to all my clients for all the great reviews. I can not tell you how grateful I am to be so very blessed and have such great clients. Life is good !
What Rebecca and her team from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca can do with some white flour, butter, sugar and some color is AMAZING ! This gal is an artist. One can feel her deep passion for her work and love of her creations. And if that were not enough to sway you, Rebecca and her husband Hector and sisters are some of the best people you will ever meet. I was so touched by their love and support of each other when shooting her ‘ spring collection’ in my studio. I am so happy for their success. Here are some of my favorite shots:
These were delish ! Under the art was an oreo !
So the moment I spoke to Chantal on the phone ( when she said her name it sounded like she said Shawn Paul, hence her nickname was born ) I was madly in love with her. Manny, her handsome fiancee’, was equally delightful ! Truly no higher praise can be given to this couple, just aces all the way around. They met on facebook when Manny was searching for alumni from Sac State. These two are such a great match, both so polite and easy going, Again I can not say enough nice things about them. Also their family and friends were the BEST !
I assure you she is not naked in this shot : ) If you got it flaunt it right : )
Shawn Paul did NOT appreciate seeing another bride on her special day ( kidding ).
I give their bridal party two thumbs up ! What an amazing group of friends they had, they posed themselves for this shot.
Fun Fact, I have photographed Tina Machua 5 times now, she is one of the coolest people you will ever meet !
They had the most adorable lounge singer.
Such a cool building, like being in Vegas.
Note the huge tear drops on dad’s shirt. Um LOVE !
WHEWWWWW ! Way to ROCK in the new year with the cover of Sacramento Magazine ! Loved this concept and our superstar models from CAST IMAGES ! Working with a pro makes my day. Great job on the hair and make-up by Jenifer Haupt, I am her biggest fan !
The best part of getting a cover is going into starbucks and seeing it on the stands. Often I am in gym clothes ( sadly whether or not I have been to or am planning to go to the gym ) and I tell the barrestas ‘ this is my cover’ and they look at me like ‘ yeah right ‘. Anywho, ALWAYS a big thrill ! And since I am too lazy to drum up another blog post I figured just putting up all my covers would buy me some time. So happy it is a new year ! i LOVE how we all get a fresh start. For lack of another word that rhymes, ready to DELVE into 2012 : )
2011 ruled with these 2 covers ! Whoot !
Why you gotta bring up old stuff right ? Re-living my glory days….
FUN FACT: This is Mike Regan of Mr. DJ Service
Sacramento’s Adrience Bankart
This was my first cover……oh the memories !
So get out the balm because it appears I am going to milk this for all its worth.
photos with heart and soul
