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?!

It’s that time of year!  Love is in the air, cheeks are sore from so much smiling, and new sparkly friends are making themselves at home on recently manicured ring fingers.  It’s Engagement Season and I am so pumped!  This is the time of year that I get to meet the happiest people on Earth and hear all about how they fell in love.  It is the greatest story you could ever tell me and if there was a show all about “How They Met” I would literally need to be weaned off of it.  Engagement Sessions are an absolute blast and they are so important for the photographer / couple relationship.  Check out the guest post I wrote for A Paper Proposal Wedding Blog HERE to read all the tips and tricks for a successful engagement session.

If you have decided to book an Engagement Session with me or are still thinking about it, here is a short video starring ‘This Girl’ that will tell you everything you need to know and more!

And now for a little inspiration on location, props, outfits etc to get you pumped for your session!

Drinking and Cinqo de Mayo Themed sessions are a great way to get the party started!

Caffeinating and kissing go hand in hand!

The furrier the friend, the better!

Lifestyle shoots have a very genuine real everyday quality to them…plus you get to feel right at home during your shoot…literally

Cavallo Point

Color!  I love photographing bright happy outfits

The Beach especially on a windy day when the sail boats are out!

A big red balloon is always fun!

Pier 39!  Seriously, this spot offers so many different looks that I live for!

Sunset at Chrissy Fields Beach literally makes me want to read a romance novel

Sometimes you can find creative shots in the middle of the city walking down the sidewalk

Stowe Lake…it’s fun, its colorful, and its Nautical!

Secret spot 🙂

Please, please combine food trucks whenever possible!  I tend to work up an appetite when I shoot!

Fort Point might be my favorite place to photograph

Love this spot!  It is totally underused.  This SF beach spot is calling my name!

Fields of gold


Capitola is a gorgeous spot and filled with so many bright buildings that my camera loves!

The Painted Ladies

A Pinterest worthy picnic complete with cupcakes, coca cola, and baby’s breath flowers adds a creative element to the session!


Your neighborhood

Loved this idea!  Simple and yet so perfect!

Sunset at the beach!

I LOVE piers!

San Francisco is filled with old war bunkers and they make a great place to photograph especially when paired with bright colors!

Have a favorite hike?  Take me and my camera with you!
