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!

These two found me through Martin’s cousin, whose wedding I did a couple years back. Martin was the officiant at their Olympic Club wedding, so he and Kathleen were familiar faces when we met to talk about their upcoming wedding. I was super excited to photograph their wedding as I had become quite fond of the Gilson Family and now totally smitten by Kathleen and Martin! They are the perfect match as they complement each other’s personalities so well…and I must add, both hilarious in their own ways! They planned the most epic San Francisco wedding I have ever had the privilege of photographing! They got ready at the Lodge at the Presidio, were married under the iconic rotunda at the Palace of Fine Arts, and had the reception at the legendary San Francisco Film Centre. It was literally a day like no other from start to finish! My favorite part of the day was photographing them under the rotunda and watching her veil take flight! It never once flew off to my surprise, but it sure did make for some fun photos! I am so excited to share these images from their special day!

I officially LOVE shooting Greek Weddings thanks to these two cool cats! Marika & Michael’s wedding was in Fairfax, Ca at Meadow Club, which was the perfect setting for an amazing celebration. There were so many memorable moments including T-Rex’s appearance during bridal party photos! He happened to be in the neighborhood so why not?! I especially loved all the 1st dances! Marika and Michael as well as their parents all took dance lessons and it showed! They all nailed it! But equally awesome was the bride led dance around the room, followed by the groom’s dance. I saw backs bend in ways that I’ve never even seen in Yoga class. I was having a ball capturing it all! These two were a blast and I know their marriage is going to be remarkable!

SO. MUCH. FUN hanging with these two during their engagement session! I knew they would be my type of people from our phone call over a year ago, and was super stoked that they were equally amazing to photograph! They both work in law enforcement and met at work. Andrew saw Courtney and thought she was super cute. He probably went through several different scenarios on how to ask his coworker out without it being too awkward. I think he came up with a great plan! He asked her if there was a day she wanted to take off that he could cover for her. She in turn filled out the request form with her number on it and put it in his mailbox. She must have thought he was cute too since she added her number to the form 🙂 He then took that opportunity to start calling her and eventually asked her out to dinner. My favorite part is that she showed up in sweatpants! Haha! What guy wouldn’t want a low maintenance girl after all? They hit it off and a few years later he took her to a secluded beach up north where they camped with their dog Bailey. Andrew brought the same meal they had on their first date (which is SUPER sweet that he remembered what they ordered!) and after he put out the food he got down on one knee and said “Will you?” I love that he was so nervous that his whole prepared proposal stopped after 2 words! Luckily she totally got what he was trying to accomplish and said “YES!”
