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'

Marisa & Pete {Engaged!!} Sand Rock Farm ~ Aptos, Ca

He swept her off her feet the very first time they met.  He spotted her from across the room at a meet-up social event with music and dancing. He knew right away that he had to ask her to dance, but when the timing was right to approach her, she was no where to be seen.  Had […]

He swept her off her feet the very first time they met.  He spotted her from across the room at a meet-up social event with music and dancing. He knew right away that he had to ask her to dance, but when the timing was right to approach her, she was no where to be seen.  Had he missed his only opportunity to meet the lady who had caught his eye?  Fortunately, there were bigger plans in store for these two and she reappeared in the room.  Without hesitation, he asked her to dance.  The connection was instant as they moved in sync to the music.  Their eyes had locked on each other and it was as if they were the only ones in the room.  There was an unexplainable connection, and they both felt it.  When they stepped outside to chat, Pete knew he could not let Marisa slip away from him again, so he asked her out on a date for the following week.  Marisa was on cloud nine as she knew there was more to this amazing guy than his dance moves 😉   They had a wonderful time sharing and having fun, which continued over the next four years.  Soon they will be dancing again, but this time as husband and wife!

After looking at various wedding venues one day in the Spring of this year, Pete and Marisa went to Sand Rock Farm for a romantic getaway.  They instantly loved the surroundings of Sand Rock Farm including the grand redwood trees, greenery and rustic charm.  As they relaxed in the living room, they noticed wedding books on the table and realized that they held weddings at there.  They knew instantly that it was where they wanted to get married!  I love that we got to do some of the engagement photos at the wedding venue.  It truly is a magical place!

Friend + Camera = Photoshoot! San Francisco, Ca

You never know where or when you are going to have a life changing experience.  Mine came this month during my sabbatical from Gymboree Corporation.  After 7 years of employment, one is granted a month off to volunteer or take classes etc.  Staying local for this month did not cross my…at all, so I packed […]

You never know where or when you are going to have a life changing experience.  Mine came this month during my sabbatical from Gymboree Corporation.  After 7 years of employment, one is granted a month off to volunteer or take classes etc.  Staying local for this month did not cross my…at all, so I packed my backpack and headed to Bali to teach English to 2nd Graders.  The experience was filled with highs and lows, but by the end I had not only gained a love and appreciation for the Balinese culture and people, but also came home with friendships that I will have forever.

Meet Karina. Born in Russia but has called NYC her home since age 8.  We became instant friends when we met on our first day of volunteering…both of us were quiet at first (well for like the first 30 minutes) only to realize we had similar personalities which made for lots of laughing!  Just two weeks after our volunteer adventures had come to an end in Bali she came to SF on a work trip!  Yah! I had to show her around, and of course brought my camera with me…One thing lead to another and yada yada yada…this happened.   Love You Russian!  See you in Your City in 2 weeks!

Introducing Ryan Stephen Herlick, born on May 30th, 2011!  It was such a pleasure to do these pictures as Krista and I have been friends since college and lived together sophomore year.  It is so great to see her as a new mom and doing it so naturally!  We had fun utilizing fun props such as the oversized monkey , the dining room table and of course their other son, Riley, the dog 🙂  Ryan was easy to keep happy as a little food here and there would put him back into a relaxed state, but it wasn’t until I put the camera away at the end of the day that he was pooped and really ready to be molded.  Looking forward to watching Ryan grow up into a big boy!  Hope you guys enjoy these first photos of your lil’ son!

This New Jersey couple came up with the most brilliant idea and I was so thrilled to be a part of it! Every year on their wedding anniversary they travel to a new state to renew their vows. Not only will they get to spend that special day in a different beautiful city, but she gets to live every girls’ dream and shop for a new white dress every year! From the second I started my correspondence with Melissa, I knew we were gonna hit it off! As we got to know each other more we realized we shared a lot of awesome similarities and far fetched coincidences! When I met Chris and Melissa for the first time at Domaine Carneros in Napa Valley, Ca I knew immediately that I would love this couple and that we were gonna have a blast! That we did! The grounds were absolutely breath taking and to capture their love for each other with this setting was simply amazing. Melissa and Chris are some of the nicest people and I just loved that we could wrap up the shoot with some delicious white wine and get to know each other more. Here are a few of my favorites from the day. You guys have a place to stay if your life every brings you back to San Francisco! Melissa, can’t wait for the next Bachelor!
