ITS OUR WEDDING !!! YEAHHHHHH ! First off, picture me in a quiet office area letting out a big YEAHHHHH when the good folks at the Our Wedding magazine told me I got the cover/ fashion shoot for their summer fall issue. I was thrilled beyond words, things were great and they were only getting better. If you have not been to the new Crocker Art Museum you really should visit, this place is stunning. So to be given the gift of shooting a high fashion shoot with amazing models and a top stylist, the best hair and make-up people with endless beautiful dresses, jewelry and flowers at the Crocker…I mean dream come true ! I loved the photos they picked for the magazine, and here are a few more:
So excited Shannon from Flourish got her super hot broach bouquet on the cover, go nono !
I can not possibly thank all the folks involved in this shoot enough, such pros !

O.k end of the year and perhaps my blog titles are not so witty….. go figure.
I say this again and again, often I ponder that I can not believe my good fortune. In life, love and work, I am blessed indeed. Shooting for Sacramento Magazine is truly one of my favorite things to do, I love getting a peek into peoples lives. Here are a few of the assignments I have done over the past few months :
Deirdre Fitzpatrick from KCRA , omg did we LOVE this lady, beauty was just one of her attributes, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. We had a great time shooting this on the Citizen Balcony. One of the best make-up artists Sheri Morris owner of Brushworx Makeup Artistry was in the house making me look good with her great make-up work and she brought the talented and uber cool Dacy Mc Whorter to help style the shoot.
Here is the one that ran in the magazine:
A few more of my favorites :
Are you kidding me with that delish sunset ?
And Nick Adorno, just the cutest kid ever ! What a treat getting to take his photo. We took loads of photos at the theatre, but the image they choose was shot at my beloved Image Provocateur’s salon in downtown Roseville. My friend Dana Schleth was doing a fashion shoot there so I horned in and used some of her lighting. Dana Rules. Again here is the one the magazine ran and a few favorites:
Talk about a dream job ! Louis Warfield from Rhino Design Studio gets to design and construct cool stuff and get paid for it. I was fascinated by his cool toys. A giant robot AND elephant, come on !
AND…. the Effervescent Melissa Crowley from News 10 Sacramento and Company was just pure joy to photograph ! Just a delightful gal full of life and spunk. The good folks at at California Backyards in Natomas were kind enough to allow us to use their lavish Christmas display for the shoot. Fun fact, the jumping and clowing around, that was ALL Melissa !
OH HOW I LOVE THE BEST OF SACRAMENTO MAGAZINE EDITION ! Mostly because I usually get a lot of assignments.
Super cool beans right…but wait, don’t order yet, you also get…THE COOLEST FASHION SHOOT EVERRRRRRRRRR ( please insert the biggest Oprah voice here )
This was a dream shoot with all the cool kids in town. I thanked my lucky stars to get this assignment !
Having the GREATEST people in the world to make this shoot look this good was a big part of its success. My beautiful and talented friend Sheri Morris from BRUSHWORXS doing the make-up makes me look like a better photographer. And the uber stylist Sarah Kreutz pulling it all together, super deluxe style action there. Add Amber Sims, our skilled and stunning model from Cast Images ( I have wanted to work with her for the past 6 years, my dream came true ) Tina Romo from Canvas
Salon who kicked arse, and top it off with Debbie Hurst who is such a dream art director for any photographer to work with….and you get a killer fashion shoot.
There was just magic in the air for this one people. Here are a few more of my favorites:
