I was very excited that I got to shoot Nicole and Brett’s fall engagement session before all the leaves were gone and before we got all this rain! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day to do an engagement session and I could have not asked for a more beautiful couple that is so in love with one another. They were very nervous at first, but after some awkward laughing to get all the nerves out, these 2 became naturals. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding in 2013!
I was a little shocked when Cortney 1st contacted me telling me she was looking for a photographer for her wedding that, at the time, was only 3 weeks away. I told her I would love to help her out and told her that we should meet in person to start the process. During our meeting, Cortney explained to me an unfortunate situation in which her photographer left her high and dry with no photography for her big day. I assured her I could help her and in the end, it was a huge blessing for everyone. I got to meet Cortney and Matthew who are such an kind hearted couple and they got a photographer and lots of memories captured for years to come. I have been wanting to shoot a wedding a Pageo Farms since my mom took me a there a couple of years ago. I was so excited when Cortney told me that her wedding would be taking place there and assured her that the photos would come out amazing at such a beautiful venue. Sure enough, I was right! Combine a beautiful bride, groom, family and friends and you are bound to create some magic. Cortney and Matthew’s wedding was absolutely delightful. Enjoy!
So as you know, I LOVE Armour Sans Angish. I was super excited when Tawny called me in September saying that for the 1st time in a year (since she has been insanely busy completing bridal order), she had time to create another ready to wear collection for the holidays. We decided to do 2 separate shoots with 2 separate themes. The 1st was inspired by floral colors, the greek muses, and preparation for the changing of summer to fall. Muted pastels and romantic silhouettes against the stark coldness of stone buildings in the background. All of the designs can be purchased HERE at the Armour Sans Anguish Etsy store.

The 2nd shot we did was very different. It was more inspired by the autumnal equinox. The bright colors of summer fading to earth tones, turning to black. The collection was inspired by all things dark, twisty, and witchy (which was very appropriate since we shot 3 days before Halloween).

Ok I’ve been excited to blog this wedding for a while now. Chris and Antonia’s wedding has been one of my top memorable weddings not only of 2012, but out of the last couple of years. Not only because I got to dance with them and their guests (which is really rare for me when I’m working at a wedding) but because of their all their unique details. Only Antonia take purple (my least favorite color) and make me swoon with all purple accents she created. You’ll remember their engagement session I did in San Diego. It was then I realized how hip they really were and during that session Antonia discussed some of the details she was planning for the big day and it had me ready to shoot the wedding . Antonia put a LOT of work into the details of this wedding and it really showed throughout the whole day. From her wardrobe, to the customized invitations and programs she created, everything she made just so unique and perfectly fitting for her and Chris. Enough talk, I’ll let you enjoy the images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, Enjoy!

Um, how amazing are these Jeffery Campbell shoes she bought just for her wedding day? Are they not the coolest wedding shoes you’ve ever seen?Antonia created all of the designs you see below. She played off the AC/DC logo and added her and Chris’ intials. Awesome, right?
Antonia and Chris decided to do a 1st look before the wedding and it was such a beautifully, intimate moment.Antonia put both her Mother and her Grandmother’s wedding dresses on display at the their guestbook table.Their ring bearer was SO SUAVE! he totally held the pose until I told him he could stop.Antonia and her dad did a choreographed dance to “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns n’ Roses for their 1st dance. One word: AMAZING.
Yep that’s me tearin’ up the dancefloor with Antonia! So much fun
Antonia has a similar picture of her mom and dad on their wedding day with her grandfather holding a shotgun and she wanted to recreate it. It was so hilarious I couldn’t say no.
It’s been a little while since I blogged wedding related stuff. I have been busy editing all those weddings and also being very sick with bronchitis. Since I was sick in bed for the last week, I’ve had the opportunity to catch up on blogging for all of you! So expect some more blogs posts over the next week or so.
To kick off the blogging spree, we have Janet and Matthew’s San Francisco Engagement session. Janet and Matthew were very nervous when they showed up and told me they weren’t very good in front of the camera. I told them they had no reason to be nervous as long as they were just themselves and relaxed. Sure enough within a few minutes of me shooting, all their nerves seemed to disappear and their wonderful chemistry came out. Not only that, but they proved to be quite the models in front of the camera. These 2 were quite adorable while I shot them around SF and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in Spring of 2013. They both are going to look just as stunning as they did during this session. Enjoy!
