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!

Megan & Mark, like so many other engaged couples this year, were faced with the painfully tough decision on how to proceed with their wedding due to the Corona Virus pandemic. Timing didn’t allow for postponing to 2021, so it was now or…now! And so they moved forward with their wedding but with only an officiant, photographer and planner. Despite all the changes and stress Megan and Mark endured, they were so incredibly happy to get married in a little slice of wine country paradise surrounded by redwoods and rolling hills of vineyards. Though they missed their friends and family, they were grateful their closest loved ones were able to join via Zoom. Megan and Mark described it as an emotional day that was intimate and lovely…a day that they will never forget.

>>–Katey & Brian-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

They first met each other about six years ago. Katey’s friend Barbara had been trying to set Katey up with Brian for several weeks as she had a hunch they would be a perfect match. Eventually Brian called Katey and asked her to have lunch down at the Ferry Building. They hit it off and the rest is history!

While it was grey skies and frigid temperatures on the day of Katey and Brian’s engagement session, they were all smiles as they walked up to our location, and their connection was immediately apparent. We hopped around to a few different locations including The Legion of Honor and Sutro Baths and navigated around the weekend tourists. I genuinely enjoyed the experience of getting to know who they are as a couple, and how they love one another, and cannot wait to capture their wedding day in April!

>>–Stephanie+Nikhil-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

It all began in 9th grade math class, which is a great place to develop a crush especially when everything else in class is not adding up. 😉 Despite this intrigue they had for each other, they ran in different circles until 12th grade. It wasn’t until they both happened to be on a bathroom […]

It all began in 9th grade math class, which is a great place to develop a crush especially when everything else in class is not adding up. 😉 Despite this intrigue they had for each other, they ran in different circles until 12th grade. It wasn’t until they both happened to be on a bathroom break from math class (hmmm…I see a pattern here that IS adding up!) that they finally started chatting. That conversation led to many lunchtime Starbucks runs, which eventually led to Nikhil timidly asking Steph to prom!

After high school, they remained a dating duo despite going to undergraduate universities 10 hours apart, and then choosing different countries in which to live after graduation. It was a long road of extremely long distance dating, but eventually Steph moved to San Francisco to be with Nikhil. YAH! They then adopted a sweet puppy named Riley.

Exactly one year from Riley’s adoption, Nikhil suggested that they take a longer-than-usual walk at Fort Point with a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. While Nikhil was positioning Steph with Riley for a picture facing the GGB (in the spot pictured above), he dropped to a knee and when Steph turned back around, he asked her to marry him. Their story deserves a standing ovation for the bravery, endurance, patience and love they needed to bring together what was always destined to be. I cannot wait to capture their wedding!

Ali & Fernando sure know how to roll with the punches! When the Kincade Fires made their original venue in Santa Rosa unsafe to use, they were totally at ease with the last minute switch to the gorgeous Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. It turned out to be a flawless day and a beautiful setting for a wedding. On top of all the lovely details, like the dusty blue bridesmaid dresses, florals and Ali’s wedding dress, I loved seeing how much these two families deeply loved each other. It was as though they had been one family united all along. I am so excited to share the photos from their fall wedding!
