After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

April & Cary are Engaged! ~ Palo Alto, CA Engagement Photography

Engagement Sessions are like a box of Chocolates for me (Brilliant analogy Forrest!) because I never know what to expect.  Some couples are shy, giddy with excitement, lovey dovey, playful, constantly laughing, quite and thoughtful etc.  Whatever it is, that is what I want to capture.  My goal is to make theme as comfortable as possible so that their  unique qualities as a couple  shine through in all the images.  99.9% of my couples are nervous and a little shy at the beginning of every session, which is to be expected…but 100% are having fun and loving the camera by the end…especially the, dare I say, Guys.   I’m not doing my job as a photographer if you are not laughing with each other or at least laughing at me.  I have done some crazy things to take the attention off the camera, and their is pretty much nothing I won’t do if it means creating a fun, comfortable environment. A couple who laughs together is the most beautiful thing in the world to me and when that happens in front of my camera I am on cloud 9!

April and Cary are a perfect example of my favorite type of couple to photograph. Playful, teasing, joking, and OH SO in love…their friendship and carefree laid back relationship was so fun to capture!  I absolutely LOVED our location set off of highway 280 in a field of rolling yellow grass and blue skies.  I literally ran up and down the trails getting inspired before the shoot started… also because who wouldn’t want to run around in a field!?  It wasn’t until we were just about done…me in the tall grass on my belly, April and Cary positioned on a safe path, that a woman walking by said to beware of the rattle snakes who live in the grass and are out especially on a hot day like this.  Terror struck me,  “Alright, that’s a wrap!”

April, you are so beautiful and my camera LOVES you both!  Thanks for such a fun, (safe), session!  Enjoy!

A Sign saying, “Rattlesnakes Every Where, do not submerge yourself into the grass” would have been really nice right about now!

Isn’t she a beauty!?!?!  Cary has two loves in his life so we captured both in one shot 🙂
