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 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!!

Triple S Ranch Wedding >>-Calistoga, Ca–> Wine Country Wedding Photographer

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.

Jamie & Cameron {Married!!} Sebastopol, Ca Private Estate Wedding

Where do I start with how much I enjoyed this wedding!  How about from the moment I pulled into the long gravel driveway of the home Jamie grew up in…the dream home her father built from the ground up.  A theme that weaved itself throughout all the beautiful wedding decor.  Her mom hand made so many of the details including the paper flowers that lined the aisle, the oil painted canvas for the quest sign in, as well as all the baked pies and cookies so cleverly placed in mason jar lids.  So much love went into every little detail of the day! I can’t imagine how special it must have been for Jamie to get married on the property she called home for so many years.  A seamless way of merging your past with your future.  I was so impressed with the table decor I had to ask where and who did it all!  It turns out that the oil lamps used as part of the floral centerpieces, the table runners, and mason jars were collected from various places including Craigslist and creatively changed to fit their needs.  Did I mention the centerpieces were oil lamps with gorgeous floral arrangements coming out of them?!  Simply perfect for the rustic charm they were going for!

The day was filled with laughter and tears and every emotion in between!  There was so much love surrounding Jamie & Cameron…and for good reason! I will never forget the first time I met with them.  I was immediately greeted with warm smiles and hugs as if I were a long lost friend!  I knew from that moment that we would become friends and that I would be the luckiest person on Earth to photograph their wedding day!  I wish you both a life filled with love, laughter, and lots of adventure!

I just love that moment right before the 1st kiss!

A beautiful moment right after the ceremony perfectly captured by Briana!

This magnetic dinner seating chart was so cool!  Everyone had their name on a wood chip with their table assignment!  No doubt this was also was another handmade masterpiece!
