Oh HELLO Vizcaya wedding! Why have I not blogged you sooner? I am not sure but you are up and running now so we are all good. Tim and Erin, some of the best people you will EVER meet. I will keep this short and sweet, enjoy!
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.
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 : )
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 !!!!
Three cheers to this Brillant ( yes they both have PHD’s ) couple and their BEAUTIFUL wedding at the Crocker Art Museum. I was thrilled to be chosen to shoot Cynthia and Andrew’s wedding especially when I heard the one and only Kate Whelan Events would be their event designer. And one of my favorite Masters of Ceremony S.J’s DJ would be running the show and Rev. Tan ( I am a fan ) rocking the ceremony. All fabulous things. But wait, don’t order yet as we had my beloved Lea from BGorgeous doing the hair and make-up and the talented Melissa designing her flowers. Winning. This couple was pure delight from the get go, I loved how they were so relaxed and easy going throughout the entire day. And I loved how the bride texted me the next day and told me I was a badass. Mama likes indeed.
LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this wedding. The Citizen Hotel, and Music on the Move, and Claire and Garret ! So many good things going for Claire and Garret’s oh so happy wedding day ! They were pure sunshine and delight, and their peeps were uber cool. Just slipping this one at the last minute to give these wonderful folks and 2014 one last shout out. Heading into 2015 with bells on over here. Lets get it started !!!!
Awww ! So many awesome and adorable things about Steph and Nesh’s wedding where do I start ? First off they got married in my studio, well o.k not IN my studio but in the same building at Antiquite Maison Privee’ ( We nicknames it Tara ala Gone with the Wind ), my studio is upstairs so they were able to use my cool studio for photos ! We all LOVE our building ! It is the gem of Sacramento with endless great places to capture true love. The next awesome things is I photographed Steph’s sisters wedding 10 years ago, so it was so great seeing the family again. And then of course the fusion wedding aspect with all of the amazing colorful and interesting aspects that brings. Their day was so very perfect with Jackson Catering knocking it out of the ball park with the perfect fusion meal and my buddy Sean at Music and More working his magic to make the event truly memorable . I truly LOVED this wedding !
I Did have a new attitude shooting Nweni and Chris’s extremely adorable wedding ! These two were absolutely the BEST ! I was MADLY in love with them from the go-get and instantly gave Nweni the nickname ‘NEW’. Their wedding had so many beautiful elements, starting wit them getting ready at the unique and uber urban boutique Citizen Hotel, and then having their ceremony at the very classic Cathedral. But wait, don’t order yet because then we were off to modern and snazzy Arden Hills where the one and only Fearon May Events had designed them the most gorgeous fall themed wedding reception. My friend Beautiful By Nature did such an amazing job with the flowers to make it all just perfect. And to top it all off My homie Chris from Encore D.j, lighting and Photo booths worked his special brand of magic so they basically had the best day everrrrrrrrr. My favorite part of this wedding was what Chris said to his new wife during their toast, how he would be sure to give her an amazing life as husband and wife ( and that rhymes, so even better ! ) So much beauty, fun and love, truly the whole package.
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 !
photos with heart and soul
