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?!
Shirley & David’s Radiant Orchid Wedding is being featured right now on Every Last Detail Wedding Blog! Â Head HERE to check out the article!
Oh My Goodness! Â Words can’t describe how much I love David and Shirley. Â From the moment we had our first meeting in San Francisco I knew shooting their wedding and having just a sliver of a role in their life would be a huge gift. Â When I heard their story, I welled up. Â It touched my heart. Â It was too late from the word Hello…I had fallen too deep, invested myself too far into their story. Â I HAD to shoot their wedding.
We had a ton of fun at their engagement session, which I might add was overflowing with beautiful details planned by Shirley…for inspiration check it out HERE. Â I thought, if their engagement session was this beautiful, then I am gonna be like a kid in a candy store come their wedding. Â It definitely exceeded all my expectations! Â They were married under an arbor draped with white silk chiffon and said their vows beneath 3 crystal chandeliers…IT. WAS. BREATHTAKING. Â to say the least. Â There was amazing surprises throughout the evening that brought tears to Shirley’s eyes as well as mine (of course)…I felt like I was living the moments with Shirley through my camera. Â From the 1st look that took David’s breath away, to their nephew’s precious voice signing and playing the piano (children singing gets me EVERY time!), to the surprise song written and performed by David to Shirley, and lastly to the beautiful letter he wrote her tucked within their wedding slideshow. Â Oh boy, it was a tear jerker! Â To top of the night they had Garden Creamery food truck serving decadent desserts that were to DIE for! Â I of course had the Pumpkin ice cream with crumbles of heaven on top. Â Congrats to you both! xoxoHeather
