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!

Hayley and Ryan are two of the sweetest and most joyful people I have ever met, so it was no surprise that their friends and family were equally amazing!  It was a pleasure being a part of their Saratoga Springs wedding and capturing the happy tears, the bursts of laughter, and of course the love that surrounds them.  I especially loved Hayley’s slinky backless gown and the gorgeous bouquets with succulents and feathers!  Her palette of mint and coral is one of my favorites!  Of course, Ryan was very handsome in his bowtie and three piece suit, but he had some major competition with their puppy Ozy, who had on a “Best Dog” scarf!  Oh Woof!  One of my favorite moments was the Mother-Daughter dance.  I had never seen one before and thought is was a great idea especially if your mom is one of your best friends!  I am so happy for these two and know they have nothing but lots of laughter and adventures to come!

These two go as far back as middle school! But it wasn’t until high school that they dated for 9 months which is practically married at that age! Like most high school relationships it ended with a breakup and they went their separate ways. Stephanie went on to graduate from UC Berkeley and Andrew graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  In 2009 the stars aligned when Andrew found himself at Petco wandering around the store in an unsuccessful attempt to select a terrarium.  What he didn’t realize is his search for the perfect terrarium would lead him to the perfect girl he would one day spend the rest of his life with.  You guessed it, that girl was his high school girlfriend, Stephanie.  They reconnected, became friends, and eventually decided they liked each other enough to fall in love, move in together and adopt animals together.  They currently have two fur-babies: a chocolate marble cake mutt named Amo and a Tasmanian devil feline named Caprica.

I absolutely love these two!  They are a fun loving, hilarious duo with huge hearts.  I know this by the way they treat each other and their adorable pup Amo.  Congrats Stephanie & Andrew!

Krystle and Andrew are two adventurous souls who have known each other since high school!  Getting married at Saratoga Springs was a perfect place for them because of the way mother nature surrounds the grounds in all her glory!  The trees and meandering streams created such a beautiful backdrop.  I knew these two were made for the outdoors, when Krystle took off her heels without question to walk across the stream to get to the place I wanted to photograph them!  She scored an A+ in my books!!  When I saw the way they transformed their outdoor venue space, I was blown away by how gorgeous it looked!  I loved the repurposed wood flower boxes juxtaposed with ornate table number frames.  It was a beautiful ceremony and I am so happy I got to be a part of their day!

Jessica & Jordan ~ Married!! ~ Saratoga Springs, Ca

Let me start by saying, it was a HUGE honor to be able to shoot this wedding.  Getting to know Jessica has been a gift to me in more ways than one.  In fact, I think all of Jessica’s friends could say the same thing because she is “So Fun!” and is such a beautiful […]

Let me start by saying, it was a HUGE honor to be able to shoot this wedding.  Getting to know Jessica has been a gift to me in more ways than one.  In fact, I think all of Jessica’s friends could say the same thing because she is “So Fun!” and is such a beautiful person inside and out. I first met her while photographing her brother’s wedding.  She contacted me on facebook after the wedding to say that she looked me up to see if I was a Christian because of the “genuine joy I exuded”.  Weddings get me every time…I can’t help but smile from ear to ear while I shoot.  I feel so thankful that my passion happens to be capturing the most beautiful gift He gives us: marriage.  So when Jessica asked if I could be there to capture her wedding I was ecstatic.

Jessica found her someone special at a party her friends were throwing.  She saw this new handsome face from across the room and before she knew it, they were chatting and hitting it off.  As she and Jordan started to get to know each other she was beginning to realize  how special he was.  Christian, intelligent, driven, and handsome…a dream come true, a gift from God.  After a year and a half of dating he took her to Tahoe for her birthday.  Being a very adventurous, athletic and well traveled couple, coming to Tahoe was the perfect place to take her.  Little did she know that this was the weekend Jordan would profess his love for her and propose!  Jordan and Jessica hadn’t spoken much of marriage so there was no way Jessica knew what was coming.  As they walked towards the end of a pier on the lake, he was waiting for her to say those words he could always count on hearing, “You are my FAVORITE.”  So when Jessica told him those endearing words, he responded for the first time, “…And I Love you.”  Butterflies, waves of emotion, weak knees and tears followed…well I can’t be sure all of that happened to Jessica, but those were my emotions as she told me the story.  He then got on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage.  I live for proposal stories…I just want to get in my Snuggie, drink some wine, and hear love stories all day!

Nine weeks later, thanks to their HUGE and amazingly creative and supportive group of friends, Jessica and Jordan got married!  They had a gorgeous wedding at Saratoga Springs with so many beautiful details that really suited their love for life, adventure and travel.  Throughout all of the preparation, the only thing that they were focusing on was each other.  Jessica didn’t seem to care about any other details…just that she was marrying the man of her dreams.  This wedding was so pure…a comittment before God, friends, and family and putting all the traditions and things that society tells us we need at a wedding on the back burner. With that said, it was one of the most beautiful weddings surrounded by tall trees, twinkle lights and special touches of Faith, Hope, and Love.
