Darcy + Cree | Kirigin Cellars Wedding | Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Happy Fri-YAY!

I am so excited to be sharing this wedding on the blog this morning. I have had such a joy looking back and editing these photos. This sweet couple got married just a few weeks ago at the beautiful Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy, CA. The day was completely smooth sailing and full of so much love. Both Darcy and Cree have big immediate families and you could just tell everyone was genuinely excited that the day had come for the two families to become one. They we're so affectionate with each other and really soaked in the entire day. I absolutely loved capturing their love for one another and the love that poured out from their surrounding families. 

Darcy & Cree, thank you for trusting me and allowing me to play a role in your big day. I loved working with both of you & hope to do more of that in the future!

John + Jenessa | Sacramento Gibson Ranch Engagement

Happy Saturday! I hope you are drinking a nice iced beverage as you are reading this because here in Sacramento it's still 90°+ outside and I am DYING of sticky skin and weird tan lines. Today basically feels the exact same as a couple weeks back when we took these sweet engagement photos! John & Jenessa braved the heat, took some sips of liquid courage out of coffee cups (my kind of people, you guys!), and goofed around in front of the camera. It was perfect!

John & Jenessa, thank you guys for letting me capture this season of your life and for being so fun & carefree! I am counting down the days until your beautiful October wedding!

Natalie + Will | Sacramento Lifestyle Photographer | Gibson Ranch County Park

Happy Friday!

I am so excited to be sharing this sweet session with you all mostly because that means I am finally catching up on work ;) but also because I love these two and I love photographing them. This is the third time I have photographed Natalie and the second time I have photographed Natalie & Will together. One reason I love photographing them is because their love is so evident which makes it so easily to capture and also so fun to capture! 

Natalie & Will - thank you so much for trusting and believing in me, for laughing at me while I hyperventilate behind the lens because the light is so beautiful, and for making sessions so much fun! 

I also need to give a shout-out to all the support and words of affirmation for my work Natalie has given me since I started photographing them a year and a half ago. You guys are dream clients and I want to clone you! Thank you for choosing me again and again and I can't wait to photograph the next big or small moment in your life!

Caleb & Jackie | Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer

Happy Monday, everyone!

The other week I had the privilege of capturing this incredible joy-filled proposal and my oh my, I couldn't stop smiling throughout the evening! I also may have cried a little, no big deal. Caleb is a dear friend of mine & my husband's and we are SO happy he found the love of his life, Jackie. We love Jackie so stinkin' much; she shines light so brightly and her smile and laughter are contagious! I can't wait for this next season for them, as they plan their wedding day and most importantly prepare for a lifetime of love & marriage together.

Thank you so much for letting me witness & capture this unforgettable moment!

Catherine | Bay Area Senior Photographer

Good evening, guys! This session I am sharing tonight is one close to my heart - my (not so) baby sister's senior portraits! I can't believe this young woman is 18 and will be graduating high school in under 2 months! She is so caring, intelligent, and full of joy. I love the person she has grown into and I praise God she is my little sisser. 

Here's to you Catherine - you are going to do some awesome things in this world and I can't wait to stand beside you every step of the way. I love you to the moon & back!
