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!

This was an emotional day from start to finish with so many happy tears. I loved being a part of Ria & Josh’s wedding and capturing the beauty that comes along with such a powerful love. One of my many favorite memories from the day was watching Josh, as his bride walked down the aisle towards him.

Even though he had seen her moments prior for photos, he was overtaken emotionally by this powerful moment. I always tell couples who are debating on whether or not they should do a first look, the same thing. NOTHING takes away from that moment, because in all reality, you are seeing her for the first time in a new light. You are seeing her as your wife and partner for life. I don’t think there was a person in attendance who was not moved by their ceremony. It was such fun capturing a wedding as if it were 2019! There was dancing, games, lots of laughter…and dare I say, hugs!? Congrats Josh and Ria!

They met on the 3rd day of medical school at a dinner with mutual friends. Although Joe and Tiffany didn’t get a chance to really connect at the dinner, as time passed they got to know each other and found that they had so much in common. Their shared love of bubble tea, food and basketball are still things they enjoy together to this day. After 6 years of long distance dating, they are together at last living under the same roof and even carpooling to work together!

Danielle, my awesome associate, had the pleasure of meeting these two for their engagement session in the Redwood Regional Park for some bubble tea, pizza and photos. They had a ton of fun together and kept the session relaxed and easy…exactly how it should be! Congrats you two!

Photography by Danielle Reiff for Heather Scharf Photography – Editing by Heather Scharf

I absolutely loved getting to know Steph and Nikhil during their engagement session and hearing all about there plans for their wedding day! I was equally excited to photograph it! Then…Dun, Dun, DUUUUN. enter Covid-19 a year later. Ugh, it turned every plan upside down and inside out all at once. They rolled with the stress of a new date, venue, and sadly, photographer. It was not a decision I took lightly to pass on their wedding to my Associate, Danielle, but I had 2 preemie infants at the time to consider. I knew they were in great hands as Danielle shares the same passion as myself for capturing people’s most important day, but I selfishly didn’t want to miss out on all the fun! However, as I began editing the photos, I noticed I was smiling ear to ear at the pure happiness in each photo. It felt as if I had been there myself and my FOMO slowly began to fade.

From Danielle: It was quite the warm day, but Steph & Nikhil didn’t let that bother them one bit. They had each other and their closest family and friends with them to help make their special day perfect. They were so much fun to photograph and the groomsmen had us laughing the whole time. All of the portraits were a breeze to photograph as each smile was a genuine reflection of the pure joy people were experiencing. It was also touching to see the pride and support that their parent’s felt for their children. The whole day felt laid back in the best way possible…everyone came to have a good time and show their love and support for Steph & Nikhil. Their focus was on each other’s love and the whole day flowed seamlessly. This wedding was a perfect example of why having an intimate wedding can be such a gift in the end.

Megan & Mark, like so many other engaged couples this year, were faced with the painfully tough decision on how to proceed with their wedding due to the Corona Virus pandemic. Timing didn’t allow for postponing to 2021, so it was now or…now! And so they moved forward with their wedding but with only an officiant, photographer and planner. Despite all the changes and stress Megan and Mark endured, they were so incredibly happy to get married in a little slice of wine country paradise surrounded by redwoods and rolling hills of vineyards. Though they missed their friends and family, they were grateful their closest loved ones were able to join via Zoom. Megan and Mark described it as an emotional day that was intimate and lovely…a day that they will never forget.
