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!

Yah!  She is here!  Please help me welcome Baby Colette!  Some of my favorite people just had the most adorable baby and I am so excited to share some of her very first photos!  Big sister Lilly (and future wife of our son Micah;) did an amazing job holding Colette.  I can tell she is a natural.  Baby Colette was a breeze to photograph…not a peep from her the entire time!  I seriously cannot believe how mellow this girl is!  I am beyond happy for Ashley & Eric and cannot wait to watch your beautiful daughter grow!

And here are some from their maternity session just a couple weeks before Colette arrived.  My son, crashed the shoot and I couldn’t help but snag a few of Lilly and him.

What do you get when an English Lady and an Irish Lad get married?  THE BEST WEDDING EVER!!  Although they never met as kids, Maria & Joe both grew up in the East Bay and attended rival high schools.  Both are very good athletes and were even featured in the town’s newspaper on the same day, on the same page years before they met.  That is serendipity for you!  It wasn’t until they were set up by a mutual friend after college that they had their first date in San Francisco.

The ceremony was so well done with heartfelt vows exchanged as well as a sand ceremony.  The reception is where things were turned up a notch with Maria and Joe setting the stage with their fun choreographed first dance.  The speeches were hilarious!  Complete with a speech to the beat of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” done by Maria’s sister.  When the dancing started there were many English tributes including appearances by Prince William and Kate Middleton, soccer balls flying around, and of course a football song that everyone but me knew the words too 😉  It was such a fun wedding and I know Maria & Joe will always look back on it as one of the best days of their lives!  Congrats!

I literally could not wait to shoot Jenna & Mike’s wedding!  Not only because we had so much fun on their engagement shoot, but also because it had been exactly 10 months since my last wedding due to bedrest and maternity leave.  I was dying to get out there and do what I love again, and returning to the scene with the two nicest people EVER was such a blessing!  Jenna & Mike were incredibly gracious throughout the entire process and were a dream to photograph.  Jenna has a background in theatre and dance which was totally evident in how graceful she moved.  I love how passionate they are for each other.  The way they embraced and snuck little moments together throughout the day and even during group photos was so very sweet to witness.  AND it was so great to see so many kind faces again as I had photographed her sister Kelly’s wedding 2 years prior!

V. Sattui Winery is hands down one of my favorite wineries to shoot at!  The ceremony site is straight out of a fairytale as it surrounded by lush greenery, stone walls, and twinkle lights above.  It was the perfect setting and I am so very happy for these two!

These two lovebirds were married in one of the most beautiful and unique venues in Calistoga, Triple S Ranch.  Their wedding was just a couple short months after the horrendous fires took flight and wiped out most of Santa Rosa and the surrounding wine country. The employees of Triple S were determined to keep the fires away and worked tirelessly day and night spraying the grounds down with water to protect the acres of land from sparks or flames that would soon be coming their way.  As I drove to the venue I coudn’t stop crying as I passed by what was left of so many people’s homes.  It is a true miracle that this venue was spared and I am so thankful I got to assist Meghan Faith Photography with this gorgeous wedding!  She has helped me shoot countless weddings and being her wingman for the day was such a pleasure!  The bride’s two piece dress was to die for!  But even more beautiful is the story of these two and how they met way back in grade school.  Their playfulness and love for each other is so evident in how they celebrated their long awaited wedding day!
