Everyone knows the right setting and details can really bring out the mood and atmosphere of a place, especially at a wedding! Since I am still fairly new to the Sacramento area market (with most of my weddings out in the Bay), I’ve been slowly working with and getting to know local vendors. One that I collaborated with not long ago and had the joy of photographing inspo for is Botanica Specialty Rentals, which is owned and operated by the talented Audrey Chaney. She has an eye for style, and photographing her set ups (and being in her large warehouse) is like being a playground! Seriously, so much eye candy! If you’re in need for rentals for your event (wedding, party, shindig), be sure to check her out!

Small weddings are some of my favorites, especially if it’s a wedding in a little cabin, out in the mountains! That’s exactly how Rick & Sarah chose to get married, surrounded by friends and family, in an intimate little homemade wedding. What’s great is that they were also able to have their two dogs in tow, and who can resist that view of the night sky in the last shot? All of it was so much magic magic magic <3

Rhinestone covered heels, pink details, with a nod to the movie “UP” (check out the groom’s boutonniere), and a sunset to die for,Cecilia and Anthony’s wedding was one of the sweetest!

If I were to use a word or two to sum up Hillary & Keith’s wedding, it would the ones that they used: house party. Everything they did was because they wanted everyone to have a good time. One of my favorite things they chose to incorporate into their wedding was serving one of their favorite ice creams to all the guests – this was a moment of service to them – a way to give back to all the people who came to support. That is definitely one of the things I just loved about their wedding – how intentional they made everything! I feel like infusing personal intention throughout your wedding is such a powerful way to let others peep into your lives and who you guys are. At the same time, I feel like it makes the images that much stronger too, because everything means something to the couple. <3


a look back at 2016 .

January 2, 2017

I rarely get my act together at the end of the year to do a post like this, so it was a real treat for me to pull some of my favorite images from 2016. There is something pretty satisfying in seeing work that you’ve created in the past year all in one place!

Looking back as well, I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I had, and the people I got the work with. On top of all the beautiful couples, weddings, families and bloggers, it was most exciting to work with companies like Chipotle & Whole Foods (and all the people I met working with them)! Those were amazing opportunities, and I hope for more in the future!

So with that, a cheers to the coming year. I can’t wait to share what it looks like!

The dreaminess. The pure dreaminess though.

These two celebrated their one year anniversary this week, so I thought it would apropo to share images from a post-wedding session we did together. I whipped up a flower crown & a bouquet, and we froliced in nature while taking photos all the while. :)

I still love doing post wedding sessions (several years ago, it was a “thing” to do what was called “trash the dress” sessions. Dresses weren’t really trashed, if anything, they actually came out cleaner, especially if they went into the water!), because it’s a really fun way to get unique & fun photos without the constraints of the wedding timeline (which can often be super tight and/or stressful). We can have more of a leisurely time getting some creative images in your wedding attire, and I mean, who doesn’t want to get dressed up again for fun? I know I totally would!
