One of my favorite things is when a groom-to-be says he doesn't enjoy having his photo taken and then making the session super fun for him! Garrett was one of those guys :) And I promised him that it would not be nearly as painful as he thought it would be, haha! We met up for their engagement session in Roseville and as soon as I started directing these two to interact with one another, I knew it was going to be a good session. Erica and Garrett are so natural with one another, they are clearly each others better halves. They will marry this October at the Monte Verde Inn and I am so excited I can hardly stand it!! I am sure it is going to be an amazing day :)
Another amazing Monte Verde Inn wedding on the books!! I swear this place has a bit of magic on the property or something. The light is just amazing and everything always seems to go so smooth. Kara and Craig's wedding was no exception. These two opted for a first look and took advantage of some amazing light before their ceremony. Then they went on to their lovely ceremony, where they entered together! I loved it!! Lots of tears, lots of laughs, lots of dancing followed. The always amazing Joe Kalamares of SJ's Disc Jockey was his bad ass self and everyone enjoyed an awesome party. I love love love these two and I am so glad they got the wedding day they had been dreaming of :)
Venue: Monte Verde Inn
DJ: SJ's Disc Jockey
I met up with Eden and Matt for their engagement session in Golden Gate park a few days ago and I swear the heavens shined the most beautiful light on us that I could have ever asked for. Anyone that has been to SF knows that there is often quite a bit of cloud cover in the city. I always cross my fingers and hope for some light to shine though when I make my way out there. And it could not have come out for a sweeter couple! Eden and Matt are so easy to be around and a joy to photograph. They are loving and funny with one another and they make my job easy. I can hardly wait for their wedding at Leal Vineyards in May!!
