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 am so excited to share this engagement shoot with you all!  We went to Pescadero, which is a super small town right on Highway 1 with a few stores, an amazing deli, and a creek running through it.  It also boasts several beautiful beaches and a lighthouse!  Shandra and Paul wanted to do their photos here specifically because this is the beach where he asked her to be his girlfriend 4 years ago!  It is also the first beach they ever took their daughter to!  We had an amazing time together mostly goofing off and getting to know each other.  The sunset was absolutely gorgeous and to top it off their anniversary was just a day away so of course champagne needed to be ‘Popped’ to appropriately celebrate!  It was such a fun evening hanging with these two! I am looking forward to Your big day!

This engagement session is on A Paper Proposal right now!  So exciting! Click HERE!

Straight Out of Campbell – One sunny afternoon, in 2013, at a street festival in Downtown Campbell, Bill and Erin first crossed paths.  Bill was rolling down the street with his one man crew, when off in the distance he spotted a familiar female crew of two walking in slow motion toward them. It was as if this middle of the sidewalk standoff had been planned all along.  He knew one of them, but it was the other new face that struck him like a bullet from Cupid’s gun.  Am I taking the ‘Straight Out of Compton’ theme too far? No? Awesome.  Harmless, yet lasting introductions were made and everyone carried on in the direction they were heading.  Bill knew he had to see Erin again and as luck would have it, he ran into Erin’s friend later that day and told her, “to put in a good word for me.”  The ‘word’ was received well as Erin proclaimed, “He is my type!”  It gets better!  They bumped into each other again in downtown Campbell while Erin was celebrating her friend’s Bachelorette party.  They talked briefly in a bar, but before Bill could get Erin’s number, she fled the scene as she had a half marathon race the next morning. ‘Straight Out of Cinderella?’  It was not until the following weekend, on an epic Sunday Funday bike ride with other mutual friends that Bill and Erin finally had the chance to get to know each other. They biked and talked for hours that day and that started it all…….they have been rolling together ever since!!!
Rewind 9 years earlier:  Erin had purchased a bike from Bill’s bike shop and the receipt they found clearly stated that Bill had been the one to sell it to her!  Coincidence?  I think NOT!
Erin and Bill share a passion for the beach and biking.  When they combine the two into one day, explosions of happiness errupt.  And so, it was on such a day, bikes parked along a beachside bench, a soft ocean breeze in Erin’s hair,  that Bill got down on one knee and proposed.  She said YES, and I kid you not, like the final scene of a romantic comedy, they saw a shooting star.
I’ll leave you with that…
AND this amazing engagement session in Capitola!  What an awesome couple!  Seriously.  I want to be them.

Krystle & Andrew {Engaged!!} Santa Cruz Harbor Engagement Session

It was ‘dis-like’ at first sight.  The scene: History Class Sophomore year in high school.  She thought he a water polo playing dork who drank too much chlorine, and her know-it-all loud mouth personality was enough to drive him crazy.  Fast forward to Senior year.  As Andrew matured, so did his feelings for Krystle.

It was ‘dis-like’ at first sight.  The scene: History Class Sophomore year in high school.  She thought he a water polo playing dork who drank too much chlorine, and her know-it-all loud mouth personality was enough to drive him crazy.  Fast forward to Senior year.  As Andrew matured, so did his feelings for Krystle. He no longer saw her the way he once did and wanted to ask her out on a date.  However, he let her know that he didn’t want anything serious.  She took that as a challenge and simply replied, “We will see about that!” In true fashion, Krystle was right and they were inseparable from then on.  In college, they took a 2 year break, but always knew they were meant for each other and would some day get back together.  Finally that day came. Her phone rang and it was him.  Andrew was joining the military and wanted to know if she would get back together with him. Without any hesitation she dropped everything and flew to be with him in Texas where he was stationed.  Now 13 years later these two are getting married and couldn’t be happier!  Someone needs to send this love story to Nicholas Sparks and get this puppy into production!

We had so much fun at the Santa Cruz Harbor!  This spot is special to them as it is not far from where they often hung out together back in high school. I always love beach shoots, and love them even more when the couple actually takes me up on the offer to run in the ocean!  It hadn’t been two seconds after I suggested playing in the ocean that Andrew rolled up his jeans and ran IN.  He wasn’t lying when he said he can’t be near water without going in.  It was so much fun to see them right at home with each other and their surroundings.  These two are so clearly made for each other and I am honored to be their wedding photographer!
