Arden Hills Resort Wedding: Sacramento

Carrie and Kevin: Arden Hills Resort and Spa in Sacramento, CA

Carrie arrived at the Villas at Arden Hills to be photographed with her bridesmaids and parents. Every detail from flowers to lace to a bride emergency kit was photographed and documented. The ceremony was overflowing with happy tears(mostly from the groom!) and the evening included more than a few emotional toasts of fond memories and well wishes. The dance floor was packed and the couple celebrated surrounded by family and friends.

Martinez Marina: a great spot for a super cute engagement session

Loved this engagement session from last year for one of my 2014 couples. Martinez Marina is a gorgeous location and really has it all! This couple was so fun and also brought their classic car which really added a personal touch to this session.

Business Headshots: Need a new profile photo? (Yes..you really do!)

I’ve been busy with business headshots recently and very happy to see so many people wanting a new and current style photo. Backdrops and basic headshots can be so plain! I think a more lifestyle, on location approach makes for such a more interesting and noticeable photo. What do you think? Check out these recent photos and please inquire for full price list and availability.

 

Lia & Kevin at Lake Natoma Inn: Featured in Real Weddings Magazine

SACRAMENTO-WEDDING-PHOTOGRAPHY-

So excited for this new feature in Real Weddings Magazine! This wedding took place at the beautiful Lake Natoma Inn in Folsom, CA. The onsite gardens are a perfect ceremony location and the river trails are just a short walk to spectacular views. I loved all of Lia’s details, especially the tradition of 1000 cranes.

This feature is in the current Winter/Spring 2015 issue. You can also see more on the Real Weddings Blog.

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year…. Happy New Year to all the newly engaged couples! Hope you snapped a pic of that special moment. (And if not, we can recreate it… shhhh we won’t tell anyone!)

Heavenly Lake Tahoe Wedding: Leah & Zach

How incredible is this view?!! Lake Tahoe is one of my absolute favorite places in the world and is also my favorite place to spend the fourth of July, so I was thrilled to be a part of this July 5th wedding.  Heavenly Mountain Resort is a gorgeous setting with spectacular panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. The photo options here are truly endless! The gondola takes everyone up to the ceremony site that overlooks the lake. We were able to have a little photo shoot with the wedding party as well as with just the bride and groom taking a ride down the mountain.

Photos at sunset was of course a highlight of the day and the spectacular view is just steps away from the reception. The weather was perfect, the views incredible and this couple was so fun and laid back that everything just came together to make this such a memorable day!

This wedding is featured in the current issue of Real Weddings Magazine. Their story and all the wedding details can also be found on the Real Weddings Magazine Blog.
