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!

I officially LOVE shooting Greek Weddings thanks to these two cool cats! Marika & Michael’s wedding was in Fairfax, Ca at Meadow Club, which was the perfect setting for an amazing celebration. There were so many memorable moments including T-Rex’s appearance during bridal party photos! He happened to be in the neighborhood so why not?! I especially loved all the 1st dances! Marika and Michael as well as their parents all took dance lessons and it showed! They all nailed it! But equally awesome was the bride led dance around the room, followed by the groom’s dance. I saw backs bend in ways that I’ve never even seen in Yoga class. I was having a ball capturing it all! These two were a blast and I know their marriage is going to be remarkable!

>>–Courtney + Andrew-> Engaged!! San Francisco Engagement Session

SO. MUCH. FUN hanging with these two during their engagement session!

SO. MUCH. FUN hanging with these two during their engagement session! I knew they would be my type of people from our phone call over a year ago, and was super stoked that they were equally amazing to photograph! They both work in law enforcement and met at work. Andrew saw Courtney and thought she was super cute. He probably went through several different scenarios on how to ask his coworker out without it being too awkward. I think he came up with a great plan! He asked her if there was a day she wanted to take off that he could cover for her. She in turn filled out the request form with her number on it and put it in his mailbox. She must have thought he was cute too since she added her number to the form 🙂 He then took that opportunity to start calling her and eventually asked her out to dinner. My favorite part is that she showed up in sweatpants! Haha! What guy wouldn’t want a low maintenance girl after all? They hit it off and a few years later he took her to a secluded beach up north where they camped with their dog Bailey. Andrew brought the same meal they had on their first date (which is SUPER sweet that he remembered what they ordered!) and after he put out the food he got down on one knee and said “Will you?” I love that he was so nervous that his whole prepared proposal stopped after 2 words! Luckily she totally got what he was trying to accomplish and said “YES!”

Jamie & Cameron {Engaged!!} Lagunitas Lake ~ Fairfax, Ca

It was a day at work like any other.  Lots to do and the lunch hour was slowly slipping away.  Cameron entered the cafeteria later than usual and greeted a friend who was with someone he’d never seen before.  His heart skipped a beat as their eyes met.  She was the most stunning woman he had ever […]

It was a day at work like any other.  Lots to do and the lunch hour was slowly slipping away.  Cameron entered the cafeteria later than usual and greeted a friend who was with someone he’d never seen before.  His heart skipped a beat as their eyes met.  She was the most stunning woman he had ever seen.  Her name was Jamie. Feeling nervous, but determined, he awkwardly asked if he could join them for lunch and they said, “Sure.”  Phew! The hardest part was over as this was the beginning of a wonderful friendship that only grew stronger with time.  When the timing was right for both of them, their friendship naturally changed into a relationship that left them so completely in love and inseparable that they had to schedule time apart!
OMyGoodness, I love everything about this couple!  From the moment we met I knew we were going to be friends. I was greeted with hugs and an infectious energy that carried throughout our conversation.  They love the outdoors, so we took advantage of the gorgeous day and went to Lake Lagunitas where they also had their first date!  I LOVED the puffer jackets they brought along so much that I incorporated them into part of the lineup.  Looking forward to the wedding!

Minh Thu & Forrest ~Engaged!!~ Marin, Ca

Can you say, “Love at First Sight?!”…I know I can! Cuz that is what I was feeling when I met Minh Thu and Forrest!  They are as nice and sweet as they are beautiful and I am completely off my rocker excited to share this blog post from their engagement shoot with all of you! […]

Can you say, “Love at First Sight?!”…I know I can! Cuz that is what I was feeling when I met Minh Thu and Forrest!  They are as nice and sweet as they are beautiful and I am completely off my rocker excited to share this blog post from their engagement shoot with all of you!

Minh Thu and Forrest’s love story began 2.5 years ago on a blind date at Sugar Cafe in San Francisco…The date was sweet all right, but it was going too well to end so they spiced things up and headed for Mojitos Salsa dancing!  Spicy!  They have been together ever since!  It is amazing how perfect they are for each other as they share a love for travel, adventure, surfing, golf, and hiking!  I felt like I was totally IN with the Fun Crew on this beautiful Saturday.  It was simply epic from the colorful balloons at the Marin Headlands, to the Rolling hills of Bolinas Ridge, to the breathtaking sunset at Stinson Beach.  This session had it all!  I know what you are gonna ask… and Yes, there were shoulder rides, book reading, blanket snuggling, flying through the air, and lots of laughter!

I felt like I had just gone on my first blind date with this awesome couple…and to continue with the theme, none of us wanted it to end so we grabbed wine after sunset in the cutest local restaurant in Stinson!

It is couples like Minh Thu and Forrest who remind me how blessed I am to be a photographer and be a part of all the love you are about to see…
