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!

Nestldown was their dream wedding location, but when their ideal wedding date was not available, they booked another venue. Then entered Covid. Their wedding date was pushed back 2 years, but luckily the wonderful concept of Minimonys was born! They decided this was the perfect solution to become husband and wife at a sooner date and still have a few close family and friends present. Nesltdown was the perfect place, and their ideal minimony date WAS available! Everything was falling into place beautifully AND they get to have two weddings with the big one happening next year! Nestldown is like stepping into a fairytale. Hidden amongst redwood groves in the Santa Cruz mountains, it boasts a massive koi pond and a gorgeous ceremony site tucked inside of a sea of redwood trees and lush greenery. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful to admire. It has long been a dream of mine to shoot there!

The day started off with Connie getting into her gorgeous wedding dress! A corset inspired lace bodice with tiny crystals scattered throughout the skirt. They had their first look under a weeping willow tree by the coi pond which was a beautiful moment as I could tell Connie knocked his socks off! My favorite moments however, happened during the ceremony. Just watching her come down the winding steps that meandered through trees and lush gardens was breathtaking. There were so many happy tears throughout the ceremony which made it feel even more intimate. I am so thankful I got to be a part of their wedding and am excited to see them again for the BIGmony!

I can honestly call this a dream wedding from start to finish. When I pulled up to the RU’s Farm property, I knew immediately that I was going to be extremely inspired all day. This venue has it ALL! A gorgeous barn with chandeliers, endless rows of vineyards, a majestic cork tree at the ceremony site, and outdoor dining beneath twinkle lights. But what made this wedding so dreamy was the amazing couple I got to photograph. They are so fun to be around especially since I can tell they have nothing but fun when they are together. It is no wonder their bridal party had me in stitches the whole day! I especially loved capturing the dance party in the barn as the live band, Cover Me Badd, had everyone on their feet all night. I am so excited to share these images with you all! Congrats Courtney & Andrew!!

These two lovebirds were married in one of the most beautiful and unique venues in Calistoga, Triple S Ranch.  Their wedding was just a couple short months after the horrendous fires took flight and wiped out most of Santa Rosa and the surrounding wine country. The employees of Triple S were determined to keep the fires away and worked tirelessly day and night spraying the grounds down with water to protect the acres of land from sparks or flames that would soon be coming their way.  As I drove to the venue I coudn’t stop crying as I passed by what was left of so many people’s homes.  It is a true miracle that this venue was spared and I am so thankful I got to assist Meghan Faith Photography with this gorgeous wedding!  She has helped me shoot countless weddings and being her wingman for the day was such a pleasure!  The bride’s two piece dress was to die for!  But even more beautiful is the story of these two and how they met way back in grade school.  Their playfulness and love for each other is so evident in how they celebrated their long awaited wedding day!

YAH!!!  I absolutely LOVE it when creative and gorgeous weddings like this one get published so that more brides can get inspired!  Thank You Rustic Wedding Chic for showcasing this wedding! This fall wedding at Olympia’s Valley Estate in Petaluma, Ca was a breath of fresh air with bright florals, yellow dresses and suspenders.  I just loved the way Thistle used the seasonal persimmons in the center pieces!  There was pieces of humor throughout the details starting with the invitations and party favors.  Such a great way to create a memorable experience for the guests.
