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!

Angie & Benito are a BLAST!  Dating since freshman year in college, their dream was to have a huge party to celebrate their marriage with their friends and family.  Mission: Accomplished!  They chose St. Ignatius, one of the most beautiful churches in San Francisco to get married in!  The grand aisle, stained glass windows, and handsome groom at the front of the church set the stage as Angie, stunning as can be, walked arm in arm down the aisle with her parents. The sight of her brought tears to Benito’s eyes as well as those who caught a glimpse of the fleeting moment.  It was the first time he’d seen her all day despite building the anticipation with a “first touch” at the Inn at the Presidio.  The ceremony was beautiful and lighthearted as the couple shared private giggles with each other.  Following the vows, A trolly car ride awaited the bridal party and took them to the iconic Palace of Fine Arts for photos!  One of my favorite all time wedding moments was witnessing the 50 yard dash after the flying veil headed straight for the lake.  If I had a gold medal to give out, I would have given it to the groomsmen who caught it mid leap, and the silver definitely would have gone to the bridesmaid who threw off her heels to help chase it down! After some priceless shenanigans at the Palace, we trollied to The Warming Hut Beach for some photos with Karl (nickname for the SF Fog) and the Golden Gate Bridge.  A San Francisco wedding wouldn’t be complete without a reception at The Observation Post in the Presidio, which has sweeping views of the bay!  Waiting to greet the bridal party was a room full of friends and family waiting to party with the newlyweds.  The night was a blast and I’m excited for these two to continue to love life and each other to the fullest! Congrats Angie & Benito!

Marjorie & Rob {Engaged!} Legion of Honor, Lover’s Lane, & Treasure Island Engagement Session

Just when I thought I had heard all the romantic proposal stories there were to hear, Marjorie goes and drops her Nicholas Sparks-esque proposal story on me!  All I could do was lift my jaw off the floor and ask for more details!  But first some background. They met through a couple of mutual friends, which is always most of the time a recipe for success when it comes to finding love, especially if your friends thinks highly of you 😉  Rob first noticed Marjorie at their mutual friend’s dinner party, but didn’t get a chance to talk to her unfortunately.  But have no fear, Halloween was approaching and her name was on the guest list of people who would be attending his party! Let’s face it, if that Modern Dracula costume doesn’t give you the confidence needed to strike up a conversation with the Shanky Prisoner you’ve had your eye on, then nothing will.  Let’s just say Dracula and the Prisoner hit it off that night with no blood shed.  And thus began their love story…which leads me back to where we started.  After a year and a half of dating he took her to a nice dinner.  No, he did not propose in the middle of the restaurant with the ring hidden in her dessert.  When they got home she walked into what looked like a fantasy suite for The Bachelor complete with hundreds of candles flickering their soft glow on every last flower he could get his hands on in San Francisco.  You name it, that flower was in her apartment.  The romance of it all just makes me so giddy!  I saw a video of the room with my own eyes and it looked out of this world!  Right there in the middle of a candle lit secret garden he asked her to be his wife.  She. Said. Yes!

That’s where I get to come in!  I was chosen to shoot their upcoming wedding in October! They wanted to do a formal engagement session slash pre wedding photos so we went to The Legion of Honor, Lover’s Lane in the Presidio, and the grand finale at Treasure Island for some city skyline shots.  I got to ride in the car to all the locations with Marjorie and I am pretty sure we are Bffs now 🙂  These two are so fun to hang with and obviously a perfect match!  Oh, and let’s not forget their playful and adorable dog Dotsy, who wore a flower crown for the occasion!
