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!

After 'I Do'

>>–Courtney + Andrew-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

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.

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!”

Congrats to Ashley & Eric! Their day was filled with so much beauty and love. They were married at Vintner’s Inn, one of my faves and one that never EVER disappoints! The place is oozing with charm and whimsy and I must add incredible sunsets! Ashley and Eric’s golden hour happened during dinner and getting all the way to the vineyard in heels at this point was not gonna happen for Ashley…which I totally get! I am only good for 45 minutes in heels! So I literally took them to where the sun was setting just a hundred yards away tucked behind the parking lot…I had no idea what I would find, but I stumbled upon the Holy Grail of hidden gems…Maybe it was the lighting or maybe it was the natural high I was on from photographing this amazing couple, but I’m pretty sure the garden was magical. Golden Hour is officially Magical Hour at Vintner’s Inn in my book.

One of my favorite parts of their day was the ceremony. It was filled with happy tears from siblings, parents, relatives and friends…and of course Eric when he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time walking down the aisle. I love tears on wedding days because that is the way I express over flowing happiness as well…(Cheerio commercials and proposal stories get me every time ). There is nothing better than capturing unfiltered emotion and I am so excited to share the story of their day through images!

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!

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!
