Monica and Ryan, dream couple of all times. Monica was bursting with ideas for her engagement session. Dig her modern Breakfast at Tiffanies theme and a nod to Lady and the tramp with them both eating a licorice rope. They love everything related to comic books and are the ultimate movie buffs.I LOVED them and could have shot them for hours and hours. They are getting married this year at the Citizen Hotel and I for one can not wait to capture all of the fun. As you can see they are a blast !
That thing when you get to do a group of gals wedding and you get to see them at each others weddings supporting each other. I LOVE this group of super cool gals and was THRILLED to be doing Savannah and Patricks wedding at The Croatian Center this past September. They were the sweetest couple, with the most fun wedding. I felt so at ease during the family photos as I had done Patricks sisters wedding. You sure can feel the love tonight and it was great to see the couples I had photographed in the past still standing ( on a roll there with song titles ). rump
This was one of my first engagement session’s of 2012 and it RULED. Usually I steer couples away from a winter engagement session as the weather is so unpredictable, but this year we are getting sunny day after sunny day so BONUS for this engagement session. Jennifer and Scott are getting married at the Firehouse this summer and I get to capture their big day ! Lucky !
It is not possible for me to love this couple more, I especially loved Jennifer’s big laugh and sharp wit and Scott’s charm and sophistication. Here is how we captured their love starting at their downtown Sacramento apartment on this particularly beautiful day :
Come on…how often is an 80’s song title going to be applicable for a blog title ? In this case, BINGO. Morgan IS a scientist, a marine biologist getting her DOCTORATE in the subject as a matter of fact. But wait…don’t order yet because TODD IS ALSO the super smart science guy. This coule had Giant brains AND good looks, AND were fun and gracious and kind….YES ! The whole package folks !
Bonus : Catrina Maria Designs was their coordinator, she is just a gem, so talented and great to work with, a true professional. My BELOVED Matt from Extreme Pro D.j’s did took care of the entertainment. Matt is one of the best in the area, if you can get him to D.j your wedding, DO IT !
They were married at St. Francis Church and had their very elegant party in their Grandmothers STUNNING river front backyard. The talented and so very helpful Dustin Whitehead did the wedding with me. Thanks Dustin, you are one of the coolest people.
And we had Miss Tiffany ( who is just about the cutest most perky person in the world ) getting even MORE great images.
FEEL THE LOVE:
I promised Morgan that I would make her look like a super model….mission accomplished !
How priceless are the expressions on Mother and Daughters face ?
/a> Todd is doing his ‘ precious moments’ pose as that was his nickname in college. He DOES bear a striking resemblance.
The rare yawning and beaming in the same photo.
We loved how silly and play these two were, just an amazing match !
Talk about a view !
Cute shot by Dustin W ! Well…..ALMOST everyone had a great time ( funny, I love his teen angst )
FUN FACT : I realllllllllllly wanted to use the song ‘she blinded me with science’ for the SLIDESHOW, but it did not go with the photos. When will I ever get the change to use that song again ?
Just to be around these two, you truly FEEL THE LOVE. I absolutely adore these two ! Their wedding was FABULOUS. Yes, it was hot as could be, but we barley even noticed as the photo love was flowing and we had so much FUN.
While I was taking the getting ready photos, I realized I had taken photos of the wrong earrings, that started us talking about ‘fun facts’ about the wedding day. Here are a few of my favorite ‘fun facts’:
Shawna bought $50 dollars worth of lottery tickets to cash in on her wedding day good luck, but left them in the machine. So some lucky person got a big chunk of her wedding luck.
Her sister and mom sewed 1,000 flowers for the bouquets and wreaths.
The brides something old was her grandma’s AND great grandma’s virginity pin which was sewed into her bouquet.
Shawna was ALSO engaged to her best friends 6 year old son Gavin, who bought her a mood ring with his own money.
Their d.j, D.J Blaine The Sundance Kid , was a friend from grad school. He was a HUGE hit, great energy and really got the crowd moving.
Tim is an amazing person as well as a pilot, hence the location of their reception: the Areospace Museum.
Shawna has a blog where she tells everyone how cool I am ( she may write other things too, but I usually just focus on the ‘ I am cool’ parts.)
Not only does she get mistaken for Megan Fox, but Shawna is also one of the neatest people you will ever meet, and she has a giant brain and is in school to get her doctorate degree.
Tim and Shawna rule…and again I HAVE the photos to prove it:
So ‘ hot fashion model’ right ?
i thought this photos was just stunning.
I LOVE both of these photos
How much to you just love this gal ?
I was GOO GOO GA GA for this big bank of windows.
The image on the right took my breath away.
Note the sun flare is shaped as a heart, no photoshopping there, that was a natural occurrence.
FUN FACT: MY BOYFRIEND BRAD HAYNES LOVES IT WHEN I MENTION HIM IN MY BLOG : )
