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!

What a perfect day to get married! With the venue’s country charm, perfect weather, and sweet bride and groom, we loved every minute of it! After the father of the bride did his speech, we felt like we knew the bride our whole lives. His speech was beautiful, mentioning the ups and downs of relationships and giving advice to them. The sunset romantics were a blast as per usual. I know they had fun making out and dancing in the golden light of the field. The coordinator/granddaughter of the owner was amazing to work with and was so incredibly kind and down to earth. She helped with family formals and all of the romantics.

I always love finishing an amazing wedding with a grand sparkler exit! Sparks were definitely flying as they kissed and hugged between all the lights! After the magical ending, we got huge hugs from the bride and groom and felt as though we had just made two new friends! Congrats Lauren & Matthew!

I am so excited to share a Willow Heights Mansion wedding again! This place is such a gem! It’s got glam, vineyards, open fields, and rolling hills! It is a dream to shoot weddings here especially when I get to document a gorgeous and fun-loving couple like Ellie and Anthony! They have this high-school-sweet-heart kinda love that is fun to just sit back and capture. What is really cool about their relationship is that they each have 2 beautiful daughters in their twenties! It was fun photographing an all female bridal party! Thanks for letting me be a part of your perfect day!

Touchdown!  I totally scored big time getting to shoot Denise & Jeff’s football themed wedding.  When they told me they were having a nacho bar at their wedding I think I blacked out for 2 minutes cuz I can’t remember what they said next.  When I came to, Denise was telling me about their Raiders theme and how they were gonna have pom poms in the bouquets, football boutonnières, and have all the guests wear their favorite football jersey at the reception.  They were speaking my love language and I knew I was destined to be their wedding photographer.  I was, after all the Fantasy Football champion of 2016. It is harder than you think choosing a team based solely off their profile pictures!  As we chatted over Facetime and again in person at a hotel bar, I could see how totally in love they were.  It was such a blast getting to know them and hearing about all the creative details they had planned to pull off their dream wedding!  

They were married at the beautiful Mission at Santa Clara University.  My all time favorite moment during the ceremony was the look on Denise & Jeff’s face when the bag pipe player entered the church after they were announced husband and wife!  Denise’s mom had completely surprised them with this moment!  As they walked down the aisle as newlyweds, all the guests waved their silver pom poms as they cheered!  It was such a great game ceremony filled with tears, laughter, and beautiful vows.  Afterwards we headed to the lawn with the bridal party to run some plays!  Meanwhile, back at the Willow Heights Mansion, a very talented musician they recruited from a dueling piano bar, was taking requests and rocking out on the piano!  Guests were sporting their jerseys, and if they weren’t eating nachos or hot wings they were blowing their Kissle (the special whistle) and waving their penalty flags.  It was a blast to shoot their wedding, and I know all their guests will be talking about that fun day for years to come!  Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Lynch!! No relation to Marshawn Lynch…or is there?

I seriously cannot get enough of this wedding or this amazing couple!  Kristen & Nick make me and my camera smile!  I just love the chemistry they exude and the way they look at each other.  You can just tell their lives are filled with so much joy.  They have an all star group of friends too, who definitely shook things up in front of the camera which is my type of crew!  The grey bridesmaids dresses paired with the sunflower bouquets were perfect for this outdoor wedding surrounded by rustic barrels, carriage wheels, and chandeliers sprinkled throughout.  Kristen’s inspiration for their rustic country wedding were her ‘To Die For” Frye wedding boots!  She has loved boots since she was a child, so when she saw these boots a few years back, she knew they would be the boots she would wear on her wedding day.  Each of the bridesmaids & groomsmen also sported their favorite boots.  I just loved how the guys got to change into jeans and vests after the formal wedding ceremony so that they could party in comfort! All the special home spun details added to the warm feeling of the day including the quilt that Kristen’s mom sewed and the home made jam that Nick’s mom made for each of the guests.  I cannot wait until I get to photograph another milestone for these two awesome people!  For now, enjoy their wedding!
