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!

Delia & Graham are originally from Romania & South Africa, yet as fate would have it, met right here in the bay area at her identical sister’s birthday party! They are getting married in Santorini, Greece next year! Gah, I can already imagine their beautiful wedding in the most ideal setting! These two were so great to meet and photograph! When I first saw them at the Palace of Fine Arts waiting for my by the pond, I could hardly believe that this was the gorgeous couple that I was gonna spend the next 2 hours with! We had so much fun working that dress! They were so easy to photograph because they are so deeply in love. I could just feel it! They created so much magic and all I had to do was capture it! The second part of the session was at Baker Beach. The weather quickly changed from bright and sunny to very dense fog! I loved the contrast though and we had fun with the beautiful crashing waves! They got pretty wet early on, but they rolled with it and didn’t let it bother them one bit! Toward the end of the session, the sun broke out and created the most gorgeous glow through the fog! And as luck would have it, The Bridge also came out loud and proud! It was such a great day! If only, I could be their wedding photographer!

>>-Caroline+Corbett-> Engaged!! Baker Beach Engagement Session

Well, it is incredibly hard to imagine that this was my first photo shoot in 13 months due to Covid AND giving birth to twin baby boys! With most of my 2019 weddings getting pushed to 2020 everything seemed very uncertain. But, boy did it feel good to be back out there doing what brings […]

Well, it is incredibly hard to imagine that this was my first photo shoot in 13 months due to Covid AND giving birth to twin baby boys! With most of my 2019 weddings getting pushed to 2020 everything seemed very uncertain. But, boy did it feel good to be back out there doing what brings me so much joy! Don’t get me wrong, I LOOOOVE being a mom and caring for our kids, but holy cow…a girl needs her ME time! It’s been a loooong 9 months of surviving 4 kids, 4 and under, during a pandemic, with zero personal time or outlets. I swear, I went through all the phases of grief with photography, wondering if I’d ever shoot another wedding. I needed this engagement session like like a flower needs water. A part of myself that I had put on the back-burner, came back to life when I met this amazing couple for their engagement session!

Caroline and Corbett arrived to Baker Beach looking like they had just stepped out of a catalog. Such a beautiful couple! They both had such warm smiles and I knew instantly that kindness and love were weaved into the fabric of who they are. Making them even more amazing, was that they were game for anything I threw their way even if it meant getting soaked in the ocean…which was purely nature’s fault…and kinda mine ūüėČ I could tell they were having so much fun together and really living in the moment. I never would have guessed that this care-free couple had a huge amount of stress on their plate, wondering if their upcoming March wedding would take place. It warmed my heart to receive their email filled with gratitude explaining that the photo shoot had brought them so much joy and gave them a chance to celebrate their engagement in a way they had not been able to do yet. I loved every second of it too, and cannot wait to see you guys again at your wedding!

>>–Valentina+Billy-> Engaged!! Baker Beach Engagement Session, San Francisco Wedding Photographer

It’s always good to make friends with the bartender, but if you are lucky, you may just snag him for life. ¬†They were first introduced at one of my favorite bars in North Beach. ¬†Popular for its popcorn, jukebox, and neighborly hole in the wall vibe¬†that always makes you feel like you belong. ¬†Where else?

It’s always good to make friends with the bartender, but if you are lucky, you may just snag him for life. ¬†They were first introduced at one of my favorite bars in North Beach. ¬†Popular for its popcorn, jukebox, and neighborly hole in the wall vibe¬†that always makes you feel like you belong. ¬†Where else? ¬†North Star. ¬†They became¬†friends and hung out a few times, but Valentina was off to live in Italy. ¬† The first time she came home for a visit was for her¬†mom’s birthday and when she saw Billy again she began to see him in a new light. ¬†An attractive light ūüôā ¬† Billy was super into her too, so they began talking to each other more frequently while she was abroad. ¬†It wasn’t until he surprised Valentina’s family by flying¬†her¬†home for Columbus Day that the deal was sealed. ¬†Being that her family is Italian, and I must add, owner’s of the most popular Italian restaurant in Little Italy, it was a HUGE deal to have the family together for this holiday! ¬†That gesture¬†not only won Valentina’s heart, but her families’ as well!

Now they are getting married in 3 short days and I couldn’t be more excited to be the one to capture it! ¬†They are a beautiful couple and have an undeniable chemistry that makes my job so easy ūüôā ¬†We headed to Baker Beach in hopes of a spectacular sunset¬†and being that is was the most gorgeous day of the year, that is exactly what we got! Stay tuned for pictures of this ‘bride and groom to be’ on their wedding day!

He woke up that morning wearing his favorite tie-dye shirt and jeans with couch hair to complete the look.  Jeff had buddies in San Francisco that he often hung out with and couch surfing was something he was all too familiar with.  It is never wise to pass up a free couch to crash on in San Francisco (granted you know the owners of said couch).  As he made his way to his car that morning, he spotted Her.  The Her.  It hit him like a ton of bricks.  Something to this day he cannot quite explain. He knew right away this girl would change his life forever. Kelly looked amazing in a business casual pencil skirt, no doubt on her way to work.  They could not have looked more different.  For Kelly, he was a tie-dye wearing couch surfer who needed to get his life together, but cute nonetheless…and somewhat interesting.  They said hello and made small talk for a few minutes and then went their separate ways.  Jeff knew he had to see her again and being that they had mutual friends, immediately started planning how he could causally “bump” into her again.  The next encounter was at a GoPro launch party at Great America.  They reconnected and started dancing to the live music. After an unforgettable time together they parted ways again. Keys.  She had his keys!  She was holding on to them in her purse!  He would have to see her again.  A classic move that works every time.  He returned to her place the next day to pick them up and they have been madly in love ever since. 

I should have started by saying, “Grab some wine and popcorn cuz this story is better than anything you will find on Netflix tonight!”

These two are incredible!  Hearts of gold and just a blast to be around!  I can see it in the way they look at each other and hear it in the way they talk to each other.  I can tell they put each other’s needs first.  We had a blast together, along with their dog Bailey, walking the streets of North Beach where Kelly lived when they first met.  We then went to Baker Beach for sunset.  Such an incredible day amongst forecasted rain.  Here is a sample of our day together. Congrats Kelly & Jeff!
