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!

This wedding will definitely go down in my books as one to remember.  I don’t think I have ever shot an Italian wedding before…and if I have it was nothing like this one.  Let’s just say the whole time I wished I was their long lost cousin Heather.  An ever present theme I noticed throughout the night was the one of ‘family’.  Everyone at the wedding was an important piece of the puzzle…a part of the family whether they were related or not. Every family expresses their love differently but you could actually feel, hear, & see the love at this wedding.  Lips kissing, tight hugs, constant cheering, glasses clinking, wine swirling, and so much laughter.  You could record a soundtrack to all the beautiful sounds.  Valentina and Billy chose a magical setting for their wedding to take place in.  Harvest Inn by Charlie Palmer has it all.  Beautiful gardens, endless rows of grape vines, cobblestone paths and twinkling lights to dance under are just a few of the things that make this place remarkable.  I loved Valentina’s color story with shades of purples and pinks which sat seamlessly amongst the lush surroundings.  Some of my favorite moments were the champagne toast at the alter after the kiss, the first dance that was so beautifully choreographed, and of course the dance party where the Fun Meter reached a new high!  I am so thankful I got to be a part of a wedding that had all the things that matter in life…loving families and great wine.  Congrats Valentina & Billy!

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!
