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 literally could not wait to shoot Jenna & Mike’s wedding!  Not only because we had so much fun on their engagement shoot, but also because it had been exactly 10 months since my last wedding due to bedrest and maternity leave.  I was dying to get out there and do what I love again, and returning to the scene with the two nicest people EVER was such a blessing!  Jenna & Mike were incredibly gracious throughout the entire process and were a dream to photograph.  Jenna has a background in theatre and dance which was totally evident in how graceful she moved.  I love how passionate they are for each other.  The way they embraced and snuck little moments together throughout the day and even during group photos was so very sweet to witness.  AND it was so great to see so many kind faces again as I had photographed her sister Kelly’s wedding 2 years prior!

V. Sattui Winery is hands down one of my favorite wineries to shoot at!  The ceremony site is straight out of a fairytale as it surrounded by lush greenery, stone walls, and twinkle lights above.  It was the perfect setting and I am so very happy for these two!

Kelly & Nick were married at a gorgeous Italian mission amongst acres of rolling vineyards…in Sonoma!  As soon as you pull onto the Jacuzzi Family Vineyard’s property you feel as though you have been magically transported to Italy.  It was the perfect setting for wedding of Kelly & Nick, who have known each other since high school (see engagement shoot here).  I love how they still look at each other with a first date giddiness and joke with a sarcasm of long time friends!  It is such a wonderful thing to witness.  I especially loved photographing their first dance together because of the way they looked at each other.  It felt like they were the only ones in the room for those 2.5 minutes. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their wedding and I wish them nothing but the best!

These two are a blast to be around!  I knew their wedding would be a good time if it was anything like their Engagement Shoot! Taylor and Conrad were married at the most tasteful venue in Sonoma, Ramekins Culinary Institute.  It was a gorgeous day in August as there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.  I knew it was going to be a great day as soon as I arrived at the girls’ getting ready house.  I was warmly greeted by a bridesmaid and immediately felt so welcomed by the house full of girls.  It was the start to so much more fun to come!  I absolutely loved the bridesmaid dresses which were 2 shades of pink and blue, each with a different style and texture.  Each one of them looked like they had stepped right out of a bridal magazine!  There was no lack of beauty in that house as Taylor looked like a vision in her gorgeous wedding dress, not to mention her Pinterest Perfect hair!  Taylor & Conrad wanted some of their photos to have a vineyard feel, so we headed to B.R. Cohen for the first look.  Conrad had a silly reaction planned for when he would see her for the first time, but that plan fell through the moment he saw just how stunning his bride looked!  Photos were so effortless with them as there was never a moment when Conrad didn’t have Taylor laughing.  It was an absolute pleasure getting to know them and capture all the joy they shared with friends and family on their wedding day.

To give you a little reminder about this amazing couples’ story, they met in Bali at the pool on Carolyn’s last day of vacation!  Stop me right there if you need a second to place your jaw back into position.  Carl from Australia and Carolyn from California, they were determined to make it work as both knew instantly that there was something very special developing.  Their love story is so serendipitious that you have no choice but to believe in destiny.  They are now together in California as fresh newlyweds!  Everything from the wedding venue, Auberge du Soleil in Napa, to the vibrant color story that Carolyn chose made this wedding wonderfully unique and inspiring.  You might notice there is an ADORABLE little boy, Carolyn’s son who shows up in numerous photos!  I seriously couldn’t help myself!  He had his dancing shoes on and literally was the last one to leave the dance floor at the end of the night!  I especially loved how he kept busy by picking up the petals in the aisle during the ceremony to see how far he could throw them over the balcony!  The wedding was a blast especially since so many of Carl’s friends and family came from Australia to celebrate.  So excited to share this wedding with you all! Just cleaning up the mess the flower girls left behind… Let’s see how far these petals fall! Cutest Bridal Party Entourage ever!!
