OH how Mama likes ! Such a cute engagement session. We had a blast. Beautiful and vivacious Kacee is going to marry super cute and completely adorable Micah next January at my beloved Citizen Hotel. Since they are going to get the cool urban feel for the wedding she opted for the sunny country feel of her childhood home for their engagement session. They love to cook hence their fun save the date idea. A big thanks to my much appreciated college intern Carrie for helping me out for this shoot, she is graduating this May from Sacramento State College and I am very proud of her.
Here is their love in photos :
Um…the cutest !
Kacee said I could put the ‘ I do ‘ stuff anywhere except on their faces. LOL.
I CRAZY love this one !
ARG ! The fall is such a crazy time for the wedding photographer. I have meant to blog for my faithful 37 readers ( that is my joke, it is more like 12 people ) but iI am one busy bee. So I am just slapping up a link of being blogged…. does that count ?
TRUE LOVE PHOTO ON THE CITIZEN HOTEL BLOG
I HONESTLY love this couple ! Here are few more for the road….
And to try and fluff this not so big on the fly blog post I will add in the SLIDESHOW.
I DO love kimberly and Aaron. What an amazing couple ! Just thinking of them warms my heart…
Kimberly, so classy, beautiful and down to earth, just a charming and lovely girl. Aaron, what is not to love ? kind, warm, giving, relaxed and sensitive with movie star good looks.
One could loose themselves in his blue eyes. They booked me over the phone as I shot his sister’s wedding many years ago ( that really warms my heart ). Their wedding was so much fun ! We were blessed with great weather considering it was February, a unique venue..The Citizen Hotel and an amazing florist, Martha from BLOOMS. Add in the fact that this couple really took my advise and met up before the wedding so we could take advantage of the many facets of The citizen Hotel, which made all my my wedding dreams come true.
Such warmth and love, it was so great to be able to spend some time with Aaron’s fabulous family ( especially Bonnie ) again. Love you…. love your show.
I always love this moment, what a great area to get one’s ‘first look’.
This is one of my favorite photos of the day.
Great shot by my super cool second shooter Michelle !
The one and only Pamala Pamperin, the harp lady was in the House, she adds such an element of class to any wedding and she is delightful to boot.
Sexy cake by The Crazy cake company, so crazy, sexy and cool

FUN FACT : Aaron invited Kimberly to his birthday party when they were 9 years old and she said no because she would have been the only girl.
VALERIE AND ALEX ( aka Valkerie and Alex ), they were like money and gum drops raining from the sky, and we are talking big bills and gourmet flavored gum drops people. Man alive were they a precious couple, so full of life and love….and ridiculously good looking . A fabulous love story, Valerie found her self a single mom with very two small children when she met her dream man Alex. They formed the most scrumptious family. Their wedding at the Citizen hotel ruled the world. With Martha Martha Martha from Blooms lavishing her talent in Flowers, and Doug L with Music on the Move’s expertice in entertaining, it was a slam dunk. Just the perfect day ! They were very ‘into’ getting amazing photos, so it was a win win in the photo department :
Dig this flower purse Martha from Blooms made, absolute coolness right ?
I am obsessed with the photo on the left, so ARTY SEXY COOL !
Such Cool spots all around the citizen hotel. And YES we MEANT to get this skateboarder in the shot.
My friend Carissa from Sugar and Spice and…. made this custom cake to match their invitation. She is the BOMB !
Every photographer LOVES working at the Citizen for shore !
This was a magical moment, the crowd went WILD when the newly weds were being introduced.
Boss the view…the view ( really old reference, sorry )
FUN FACT : Alex is a cop and he made Valerie think she was being arrested when he proposed to her, hence the handcuffs in so many of the photos below
