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 have been looking forward to this wedding all year!  Elieke and Charlie are so sweet and I can tell live life to the fullest!  It was a pleasure getting to know them more at their wedding and witness how loved they are by so many people.  They live in the great city of Chicago, but being that Elieke’s family is in the Bay Area, they wanted to have a wine country wedding…and there is no place more beautiful than a fall wedding in Sonoma!  Cornerstone is one of my favorite venues to photograph due to all the unique art, gorgeous gardens and inspiring displays sprinkled throughout the property.

Elieke and her family are Dutch so Charlie surprised Elieke by wearing her dad’s wooden clogs for a majority of the day!  Getting from point A to point B took some time but he looked like a natural in them 🙂 They also had so many great DIY details all with clever humor infused!  Everything was homemade from the signs, to the lawn games, bridal party gifts and even the king’s table garland.  Elieke and her family have got some crazy DIY skillz!  I especially loved their cake tower made of cheese!  I would definitely be happy stranded on an island with just that cheese tower and some wine.  They also had homemade ice cream being served near the dance floor which the guests LOVED.  It was a perfect day and I cannot wait to share these photos with you!  Congrats!

I absolutely love shooting at this outdoor wonderland also known as Saratoga Springs!  It’s got bridges, trees, rocks, streams and dancing under the stars!  This was the first time I have done a morning wedding here and the morning sun coming through the trees did not disappoint!  It was a magical day from start to finish and YangYang and Andre had a blast celebrating with their closest friends and family.  I especially loved their ceremony filled with lots of laughter, a shy flower girl, and a passionate kiss to seal the deal! I wish you two the best!

>>–Nifer+Aaron-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

OH My Goodness, I seriously love these two!  They pretty much sum up everything that the word “Love” means with just one look into each other’s eyes!  They are like two peas in a pod, like butter and popcorn, like wine and cheese…you get the point!  One is just not the same without the other.  […]

OH My Goodness, I seriously love these two!  They pretty much sum up everything that the word “Love” means with just one look into each other’s eyes!  They are like two peas in a pod, like butter and popcorn, like wine and cheese…you get the point!  One is just not the same without the other.  I found myself smiling non stop as I photographed these two.  Plus I find their senses of humor to be hilarious!  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I think they did too!  I could tell that as long as they were holding each other it was as though me and my camera weren’t even there…a huge testament to their relationship!  We had a great time out at Fort Baker one of my favorite photography spots, as well as downtown Sausalito.  Thanks for sharing your time with me and being so easy to photograph!  Can’t wait to do it again in 5 months or so!  Go GT and MIT!

I first met Lindsay through using their wonderful Airbnb in North Beach!  I was pregnant and my whole family got the flu, so my husband thought it best to “exile” me for a bit.  Lindsay’s place just down the street from us, happened to be available and she was so incredibly nice and accommodating! We have a mutual friend and when she found out I was a photographer, booked a family session with me!  It was so fun meeting the rest of her crew!  She and her husband Vince, have the most adorable 19 month old son who rocked the shoot with the help of his toy car and snacks!  I always bring snacks to my shoots too!  Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Sara came as well completing the party 🙂  We had beautiful weather and good times out at Fort Baker.  I am so happy I had the chance to meet these wonderful people and capture their growing family!
