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!

I am so excited to share a Willow Heights Mansion wedding again! This place is such a gem! It’s got glam, vineyards, open fields, and rolling hills! It is a dream to shoot weddings here especially when I get to document a gorgeous and fun-loving couple like Ellie and Anthony! They have this high-school-sweet-heart kinda love that is fun to just sit back and capture. What is really cool about their relationship is that they each have 2 beautiful daughters in their twenties! It was fun photographing an all female bridal party! Thanks for letting me be a part of your perfect day!

I am so lucky that this awesome couple chose me to shoot their wedding back in 2014 cuz now I get to continue photographing them as parents to the coolest kid ever! If you haven’t already met their son Hendrix cruising Fillmore Street you will likely find him at Pete’s Coffee or the nearby playground. […]

I am so lucky that this awesome couple chose me to shoot their wedding back in 2014 cuz now I get to continue photographing them as parents to the coolest kid ever! If you haven’t already met their son Hendrix cruising Fillmore Street you will likely find him at Pete’s Coffee or the nearby playground. His Boy Bun is famous in these parts too. Not only did we run from Cheetahs chasing us, but he also gave me the lion tour of Pac Heights! I had no idea there were so many lion statues everywhere! Thanks for letting me hang with you Hens, and I’d pay good money to see you dance and sing to Beyonce again! Can’t wait for our next photo shoot, you little stud muffin you!

I mean, I knew Baby Shine was gonna be freakin’ model material, but I was not fully prepared for just how handsome he was going to be! Get this baby a manager stat! haha! I have been a fan of Tara & Zack since I first met them for their engagement session many years ago. I was thrilled to reconnect with them for maternity and now newborn photos because they are such amazing people! I am so excited to see them as parents and cannot wait to photograph Baby Cyrus’s next milestone. Let’s not forget their very handsome and photogenic Frenchie, Boomer! He was always camera ready and even brought us swaddles when we needed them! Here are my favorites from Cyrus’s 3 week session!

Casey and Janelle’s proposal story is EXACTLY the reason why I am obsessed with what I do for a living! I get to hear amazing love stories, get to know the couple behind the story, then capture it all in action!

Their engagement story started on a Friday morning, when Casey suggested they play hookie from work. Of course Janelle resisted as it was going to be a busy day at the office. However, Casey finally convinced her by reassuring her that he had cleared it with her boss. As they drove to wine country Casey’s voice started to come on through the speakers! It was him rapping to all his favorite 90’s rap songs. Janelle was dying cuz she has been asking him to do this for her for YEARS! Casey only raps when he lets loose and it is a side of him that she loves. For some reason I immediately pictured Vanilla Ice, 2 Pac and Bone Thugs! Oh man, the 90’s were amazing! Anyhoo, this was a major hint that something special was about to happen.

When they arrived at Calistoga Ranch, Casey gave her a brand new pair of hiking shoes so she would be well equipped for the hike he was about to take her on. At about 95% of the way to the top, Casey told her to stop and turn around at which point he blindfolded her for what felt like eternity. If other hikers would have seen her they would have called 911 to report a kidnapping! When Casey finally came back to take off the blindfold he turned Janelle around to find the remainder of the trail covered in red and white rose petals. They walked together to the end of the trail to see an amazing view but the best view of all was seeing Casey asking her to be his bride!
