A flash back to this summer, this wedding truly warms my heart. Rachel and Chris were two of the NICEST kindest, most loving people I have ever met. They were soul mates who had their perfect day at Arden Hills Country Club. I LOVED this wedding with every fiber of my being. With my great friends Jenifer Haupt from I make Beautiful making the bride beautiful and Shannon from Flourish making her stunning floral designs, this event was pure beauty, sunshine, love and light. And my friends out did themselves with the cake, Rebecca and Hector from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca sweetened up the place big time. I always look forward to working at Arden Hills, the staff, food, and service are top notch. They have it down and that makes for a wonderful and relaxed day. Again, less talk more photos right : )
Oh how I LOVE her bright and bouncy flowers, played Flourish : )
Arden Hills has so many great locations to get these bold dramatic shots, I love it there.
I adore everything about this photo, colors, the expression, it is true love all the way.
Giving some well received advise on a happy marriage : )
Please note their expressions, priceless.
Dig the detail of that cake right ? It is work of art !
SWEET ! Hello FIRST WEDDING OF 2013. And I am here to report, it was stunning in every way.
First off, Kacee and Micah and I have a massive love thing going on, I am goo goo ga ga for them. Lets count all of marvelous things involved in this wedding one by one.
The wedding was held at the coolest place on earth, o.k, in Sacramento anyway, The Citizen hotel. Their flowers were so perfect for Kacee’s vision, I love Jackies flowers, she nails it every time. One of my ‘flava flav’ d.j’s, Dominic ( I won’t post his nickname as it is a bit racy ) from Extreme Pro D.J’s always brings his A game. And my beloved Rev. Jeri Murphy officated, I lurve her. Add in her fun friends and family and their kindness towards everyone involved and this wedding was exceptional. Since this is my first blog post in a bit, hold on, it is a long one ( who am I kidding, there are all pretty long ).
Great shot from my awesome second shooter, thanks Jammies !
Yummy shot of Kacee and her beautiful flowers, just perfection.
I LOVED her M.O.H, always good to have some strong women in the mix : )
Yeah, don’t ask…
Again, Go Jackies Flowers, NAILED IT SISTER.
Ceremony #1, did mention, this was a brillant idea !
And then onto the public ceremony, I LOVED this part, where Kacee is trying so hard not to cry. Again, hiring Rev. Jeri Murphy was a wise move, I love her energy.
This couple had the cutest decor, just darling !
And this is how they met, adorable right.
One of my all time favorite candids of all time.
Fun fact, Kacee and Micah had 2 ceremonies, the first was a combo ‘first look’ private ceremony on the balcony, and the second the traditional public ceremony. Brilliant idea ! I felt so very blessed to be in attendance of the private ceremony, it was pure magic !
A bit of recent work printed in Sacramento Magazine to feed the hungry blog : ). I have said 423 times how much I love and appreciate shooting various assignments. Partly because I am noisy and love getting a glimpse into folks lives, and partly because I love the challenge of finding nailing just the right photo.
Note the flowers from Shannon ‘Totes Mc Goats’ from Flourish, her milk shake truly does bring all the boys to the yard. Great table shot from The Citizen Hotel, such a beautiful room.
My adorable bride Sara who was married at The Crocker Art Museum this past summer getting some lovin’ : )
FUN FUN FUN at karaoke at Oishii, I want to go back there
soon. It is such a unique venue.
I love it, they call her the ‘menu whisperer’.
This was a ‘why you gotta bring up old stuff’ shot we did of the band Desario a few years back. Desario is the gem of Sacramento. Jim Rivas, band member extraordinaire, is a friend and husband of our very own, again Shannon from Flourish ( name dropping like crazy over here ).
And Lastly, this image snagged ‘The big picture’ spot in the magazine. This was from the Christmas concert from the kids at St. Patricks Academy, completely adorable, this concert really reminded me of what Christmas is all about. So very touching.
