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!

Danielle & Matt will always have a special place in my heart! It was my “Coming Back” wedding after a year and a half of not photographing a single wedding due to Covid. They had to postpone their date TWICE! The stress of the unknown they experienced with grace is admirable for sure. But in the end, their day…THE day, couldn’t have gone any better! I could tell from the constant smiles and laughter from Danielle and Matt that they were on cloud 9 being able to finally celebrate their marriage with all their friends and family.

There are some special details I have to mention, like the dress…It took my breath away when I saw it hanging in the bridal suite. Layer upon layer of tulle, each with a different wow factor. Some layers had lace appliques, while others were covered in a subtle gold glitter pattern. I also just love how the lace around the neck looked like a gorgeous piece of jewelry framing her neckline. It was a 9 month collaboration with her designer to make her dress-dreams a reality. Another detail that was a vision come to life, was the orchid and floral chandelier that they said their vows beneath. A total masterpiece by Wine Country Flowers and a dream come true for Danielle. See images below. I am so thankful for getting to be a part of this special day! I hope you enjoy the photos!

Sarah and John know how to throw a party…and a wedding 🙂 I should have known from the second Sarah told me she was from New Orleans, that it was going to be a wedding to remember! We had just returned form New Orleans two weeks before their wedding to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! It was our first time there and we were instantly in love with the city! There was so much culture and the live music and food was the best we’d experienced in all our U.S. travels! I was sooo excited to see that they were incorporating some of this culture into their wedding day! As they walked down the aisle as newlyweds, all the guests waved white scarves, while a brass band played a celebratory song. All the guests danced their way from their seats all the way to cocktail hour! It was an amazing moment that totally set the tone for the rest of the night. A HUGE dance party! The reception was cocktail style so the guests could dance all night and take breaks for food and drinks whenever they wanted. I LOVED every second of it! Another highlight was Sarah’s son, who was incredibly adorable! I couldn’t take enough photos of him 🙂 Congrats Sarah & John!

Classica & Greg said their vows at the beautiful Vintner’s Inn in Santa Rosa, Ca with a beautiful vineyard backdrop. It was such a joy to capture their wedding day because they are always laughing and smiling in each other’s presence, which was totally infectious ’cause I caught myself grinning ear to ear as I photographed them. It was fun to witness the way their love for each other poured out through their smiles. One of my favorite moments from their wedding was photographing them in the vineyards during sunset. They were freshly married and completely on cloud 9 as they held each other. I am so excited to share this blog from their wonderful wedding! Congrats to Classica & Greg (and your adorable dog Chopper!)

Congrats to Ashley & Eric! Their day was filled with so much beauty and love. They were married at Vintner’s Inn, one of my faves and one that never EVER disappoints! The place is oozing with charm and whimsy and I must add incredible sunsets! Ashley and Eric’s golden hour happened during dinner and getting all the way to the vineyard in heels at this point was not gonna happen for Ashley…which I totally get! I am only good for 45 minutes in heels! So I literally took them to where the sun was setting just a hundred yards away tucked behind the parking lot…I had no idea what I would find, but I stumbled upon the Holy Grail of hidden gems…Maybe it was the lighting or maybe it was the natural high I was on from photographing this amazing couple, but I’m pretty sure the garden was magical. Golden Hour is officially Magical Hour at Vintner’s Inn in my book.

One of my favorite parts of their day was the ceremony. It was filled with happy tears from siblings, parents, relatives and friends…and of course Eric when he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time walking down the aisle. I love tears on wedding days because that is the way I express over flowing happiness as well…(Cheerio commercials and proposal stories get me every time ). There is nothing better than capturing unfiltered emotion and I am so excited to share the story of their day through images!
