Monica and Ryan voted most darling photogenic couple on earth! Boom, one fabulous first wedding of 2016, yes please and thank you. We LOVED this couple so much, they were bursting with fun and vibrant energy and they loved photos. We packed in every photo possible. The Citizen Hotel rocked as usual, we heart Melissa from All Dolled Up and adore everything about Visual Impact and their beautiful work. I am as usual so thankful to be able to document these special occations, for such an amazing venue and for my freaking AWESOME second shooter Sarah Torres. Yup, life IS good indeed.
For this couple, pretty freaking DEEP !! Eugene and Gliezel have me totally smitten. They love photos ( which in my business is a very good thing ) so they had me do their ‘save the date’ photos. The clouds were looming but luckily they let up for this oh so happy spring session. It was just perfect ! I want to insert 3 or 4 more love song titles but enough already.
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 !
Blog post title from one of my all time favorite shows 30 Rock:
So, sometimes I even annoy myself with my Pollyanna, blessed beyond my wildest dreams, life is good indeed self. That being said, here goes another rant about how blessed I am and how good life truly is… o.k I can spare you the rant and just post a ton of my commercial and portrait work favorites and we can call it a day. Deal ? From Bellies to boobies to babies, events, families, headshots, body builders to boxers, this gal does a wide array of work. Here are a few, o.k ALOT of favs:
What do I LOVE about doing an engagement session you ask ? Well it is first and foremost capturing a couples energy and essence. I want the images to feel like ‘them’. Then of course I love showing just how cool and beautiful our City of Trees truly can be. It is no secret that I am a huge ‘Sacramento’ fan, I LOVE it here and think it is the best place to live ever. We have it all here with a thriving city and pristine parks. I love working with the light, the colors and architecture. Adding all of the elements to one session and giving a lot of variety. Kolby and Nick sure did bring the perfect cheer for their engagement session and we were able to use all of the elements I LOVE. These two were as good as it gets as you can see by checking out the photos : )
In case you are wondering why the sudden loyal blogging, well I accepted a blog challenge to blog every week lest I loose $100 and that is NOT going to happen. Great way to show my recent work and express my love and gratitude for my beloved wedding couples. I loved this wedding so very much. Kyla and Patrick were the bees knees of wedding couples. Their beautiful and classy wedding had so many fabulous elements such as my favorite gals at Alluring events ( they were so so awesome ), the arty historic Crocker Art Museum and the extremely hip Beatnik venue, the sweetest and best make-up gals at All Dolled Up and the truly talented Botanica floral. And we were lucky enough to get that delicious winter sun. Yay yay double yay for all of the beauty and love involved. Enough words, photos please.
A fun bright colorful super hero themed birthday party ? YES PLEASE !! One of my favorite parts of my job is to be able to capture events of all kinds. This birthday party did not disappoint ! With a magic show, face painting, a balloon artist, character drawing, games of all kinds and all manor of sugary treats. KMK designs rocked this event with their attention to every detail. Beautiful little Amrita had a day she will now remember with these jamming photos:
Engagement session are one of my favorite gigs. I love being able to do ‘ all the things ‘ our beautiful and vibrant city has to offer and capturing the couples essence. This Engagement session was one of those times. Kyla and Patrick were simply the best. Coffee lovers and madly in love, we were smitten with them from the go get. They will be married NEXT WEEKEND at The Crocker Art Museum ( yay ) and my friends at Alluring events will be there to keep it all together. Stay tuned for part two of this happy couple when we get to show off their wedding photos. Whoot !!!!
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
You hear the term ‘ my knight in shining armor ‘ often, but in this case Jim LITERALLY was a knight in shining Armor in a video game when He and Elizabeth connected. The rest is a tale as old as time…Boy meets girl on game, meet in person, fall in love and get married with me as their photographer and live happily ever after. I LOVED this sweet wedding at Silva’s Sheldon Inn ( the owner are friends of mine ), what a darling venue with loads of great spots. One of my favorite florists, Scarlett and Grace made the most beautiful bouquet and the sunset was ever so delicious. I felt such gratitude for getting to be a part of this fun and magical day.
