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!

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!

Kellie & Dean are my kind of people!  They light up a room with their presence and infectious personalities.  Simply put:  You want to be their best friend and follow them around like a lost puppy because you know if they are doing it, it must be Ah-Mazing!  I was so completely honored to be invited to their wedding reception.  When I questioned the invite to such an intimate dinner, Dean said, “It’s important to us that you get to know our friends and family.”   They saw me for who I wanted to be for them, and all my couples…a friend, not just vendor at their wedding.  That was seriously the nicest gesture I had ever received & I will always cherish it.

They put so much love into every last detail of their wedding…and by love I mean blood, sweat and maybe even tears as they handmade all of the creative vignettes.  They wanted to create a welcoming and warm environment for their guests which was beautifully executed with the handmade freestanding doors for Kellie’s grand entrance.  Her entrance was spectacular, but I must say it was equally matched when she got carried through them at the end of the ceremony by her new husband!  At the end of the aisle was a mantle decorated with flowers, crates and candles.  You felt as if you were part of their home and family as you watched these two say their vows.  Throughout the property they continued the rustic homespun feel with a mint green bicycle displaying homemade jam, a mint green wheel barrel filled with beverages, and the cakes elegantly situated on top of vintage mint green tables.  The ambiance was perfect and I dove head first into it’s welcoming arms.  It was like a good movie that I never wanted to end…and like all good movies, there were happy tears and lots of laughter.  Congrats Kellie & Dean!

Out of the blue Dean jumps behind Kellie as she is showing me her garters!  Hilarious!

This is really a photo, not a dream come true…galloping horses and one of each color and pattern!?  It’s like a fairytale!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich bites served on a tray?!?  YES PLEASE!
