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!

>>-Ana+Steve-> Married! Seascape Golf Club Wedding, Aptos, Ca

When Steve and Ana met through work in 2012, they made it very clear to each other that they were only interested in being friends…which, let’s be honest, almost always leads to a proposal 😉 😉  I have heard a ton of love stories, and that my friends, is definitely a good rule to make […]

When Steve and Ana met through work in 2012, they made it very clear to each other that they were only interested in being friends…which, let’s be honest, almost always leads to a proposal 😉 😉  I have heard a ton of love stories, and that my friends, is definitely a good rule to make if you want to marry said person 😉   Anyhow, Ana was determined to stay friends with Steve, even joking she’d punch him in the throat if he tried to kiss her.  haha!  Regardless, they continued spending time together and hiding their true feelings for one another became more and more difficult.  One day Steve decided to take his chances and pulled Ana aside and kissed her…AND, she kissed him back!  On March 31, 2013 they made their relationship official and Steve transferred job locations so they could date openly. A few years later on their anniversary they got engaged! And even more amazing, on March 31, 2017 they got married!  I think it is safe to say that 3-31 are their lucky numbers 😉

I had so much fun shooting this wedding!  There were 3 couples in attendance whose weddings I had previously captured including Ana’s brother, Franky!  It’s always fun having friends at a wedding cuz I feel so very welcomed and no one is as shocked when they see what a goober I am.  After their gorgeous wedding at Seascape Golf Club in Aptos, they were greeted by a mariachi band which set the tone for a fun night to follow!  I especially loved our time at the beach down the street which we practically had ourselves!  Congrats Ana & Steve!  I am so excited to see what other exciting things you have in store, especially on the last day of all your Marches.

Lauren & Andrew were married on the beautiful property at Rancho Soquel in Capitola, Ca.  It was the perfect setting to create the bohemian garden wedding that Lauren envisioned.  The wedding party looked so chic in their bohemian white lace dresses and don’t even get me started on the flower girl dresses!  I am still searching for the dresses in my size!  Lauren’s dress was simply amazing.  Light, flawy, backless with a hint of leg!  Oh lala!  I just loved all my time working with Lauren and Andrew and can see why they are so popular with a 20 person bridal party! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding to start my season with!  Congrats you two!

 AND…the Warriors bring home a victory for Lauren & Andrew!

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.
