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'

Christina & Steven ~Married!!~ Leal Vineyards Wedding Hollister, Ca

From the Groom: Growing up in the small town of Gilroy, it is not hard for your paths to repeatedly cross. We both went to the same elementary school and high school, but ironically did not meet until we left Gilroy. Our paths crossed once again in the hallways at San Jose State. Recognizing a familiar face from the past, we exchanged numbers to start a friendship. Within a year of myspace conversations (hahahah), texting, concerts, and movie nights, a spark was lit.

Finally realizing that there was something more than friendship going on between us, I mustered up the courage to ask her out on a dinner date. IT WAS THE MOST AWKWARD TIME EVER!!! Even though we had been casually hanging out, there was something different about this night. Nervous laughs, sweaty palms, and general first date jitters filled the air that night. Although we had already built a solid friendship, we both knew that this date was the start of something deeper.
Eight years of more movie nights, dinner dates, and deep conversations, I knew I had found my soul mate.

Christina and Steven have a spark to them.  I just love being around them because they are so happy!  I love their energy and the way they don’t take life or each other too seriously.  It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their celebration and witnessing all the amazing love that filled the barrel room that special night.  Cheers to You!!

Looking at Steven at this very moment caused a tear to fall down my cheek. He was just taken by the feeling of seeing his Love walking toward him.

I loved that the veil flew up and over her face just perfectly leaving her smiling face to be highlighted!

There was a definite brotherhood between all the groomsmen…the kind you just look at with envy.

So. Much. Fun!  Love you both!

It’s not every day you meet a woman like Corina who lights up the room with her infectious smile and holds you in complete awe with her effortless beauty. She has such a kind soul and has definitely found her other half in Mario as he too is one of a kind.  It is couples like these that I LOVE photographing.  Their beauty and love just overflows into the camera and all I need to do is show up and capture it.  I literally could not stop taking pictures even when the time was up!  They are so fun to photograph and as you will see, my camera LOVES them…or let’s face it…I LOVE them 🙂  Their wedding day was perfect and now they are most likely riding Space Mountain to jumpstart their honeymoon; a place no doubt Mario thinks of as the happiest place on Earth knowing that he is not just in line waiting for a ride, but he is in line with his wife…the love of his life.  Mario and Corina LOVE Disneyland!  It is by far the happiest place on Earth for Corina as well as this is where Mario got down on one knee to profess his love and ask for her to spend the rest of his life with her.  This magical moment right in front of the magical palace under a night sky lit only by fireworks is where their personal love story took flight and no doubt will continue to be the home of many more amazing memories.  I am so happy that I had the great pleasure of meeting this couple and I am so glad that they found their Happily Ever After in each other!

Big Thanks to Carleigh from Sweetpoppystudios.com for stepping in and second shooting with me!  She has a fantastic eye!
