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!

They first met each other about six years ago. Katey’s friend Barbara had been trying to set Katey up with Brian for several weeks as she had a hunch they would be a perfect match. Eventually Brian called Katey and asked her to have lunch down at the Ferry Building. They hit it off and the rest is history!

While it was grey skies and frigid temperatures on the day of Katey and Brian’s engagement session, they were all smiles as they walked up to our location, and their connection was immediately apparent. We hopped around to a few different locations including The Legion of Honor and Sutro Baths and navigated around the weekend tourists. I genuinely enjoyed the experience of getting to know who they are as a couple, and how they love one another, and cannot wait to capture their wedding day in April!

>>–Stephanie+Nikhil-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

It all began in 9th grade math class, which is a great place to develop a crush especially when everything else in class is not adding up. 😉 Despite this intrigue they had for each other, they ran in different circles until 12th grade. It wasn’t until they both happened to be on a bathroom […]

It all began in 9th grade math class, which is a great place to develop a crush especially when everything else in class is not adding up. 😉 Despite this intrigue they had for each other, they ran in different circles until 12th grade. It wasn’t until they both happened to be on a bathroom break from math class (hmmm…I see a pattern here that IS adding up!) that they finally started chatting. That conversation led to many lunchtime Starbucks runs, which eventually led to Nikhil timidly asking Steph to prom!

After high school, they remained a dating duo despite going to undergraduate universities 10 hours apart, and then choosing different countries in which to live after graduation. It was a long road of extremely long distance dating, but eventually Steph moved to San Francisco to be with Nikhil. YAH! They then adopted a sweet puppy named Riley.

Exactly one year from Riley’s adoption, Nikhil suggested that they take a longer-than-usual walk at Fort Point with a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. While Nikhil was positioning Steph with Riley for a picture facing the GGB (in the spot pictured above), he dropped to a knee and when Steph turned back around, he asked her to marry him. Their story deserves a standing ovation for the bravery, endurance, patience and love they needed to bring together what was always destined to be. I cannot wait to capture their wedding!

When Kevin and Connie first started dating over 4 years ago, one of the first dates he planned for them was an escape room with a bunch of their friends. Connie was not into the concept of Escape Rooms and resisted any suggestions at trying one out. After he forced her into trying her first ever escape room (which they didn’t even escape from), she was completely hooked…on both the escape room experience and her new beau. They started doing escape rooms and puzzle hunts together all the time.
In the beginning of their relationship, Kevin showed her just how fun working together to solve puzzles can be. It’s only fitting that he completely created his own escape room-style puzzle hunt with the ultimate prize being a ring at the end of it. They solved a series of puzzles “together” that became increasingly (yet subtly) suspicious and ended with the opened locks flipping over to spell out “WILLL U MARRY MEEE”.
Connie had thought about this moment so many times in the past that she completely burst into tears as she realized the love of her life was now down on one knee grinning from ear to ear with a penguin engraved ring box open in his hands.

>>-Danielle + Matt–> Engaged!! Marin Headlands & Fort Baker Session

When a couple starts a session by saying they are awkward in front of cameras I automatically think to myself, “This is going to be the BEST shoot EVA!” That is not a sarcastic thought, but a genuine-super-excited thought. I translate that to, “We do not take ourselves too seriously and we totally trust you […]

When a couple starts a session by saying they are awkward in front of cameras I automatically think to myself, “This is going to be the BEST shoot EVA!” That is not a sarcastic thought, but a genuine-super-excited thought. I translate that to, “We do not take ourselves too seriously and we totally trust you to do your thang!” From the very 1st picture I took, I knew Danielle & Matt were gonna do great. They totally focused on each other, made each other laugh, and just had fun with every situation I put them in. They are a super cute couple and I love that they changed into something more comfortable for the 2nd look: Lulu Lemon attire! So I naturally made them do things that heels and tight jeans wouldn’t allow 🙂 I had a blast with these two taking them to all my favorite spots from Bonita Point Lighthouse to Fort Point. It was an epic day and I am so pumped for their wedding!
