I had the pleasure of shooting Erika and Seth's beautiful wedding at the Monte Verde Inn and I can't stop smiling about it!! The whole day, from beginning to end was just amazing :) These two are so crazy about each other, there was no direction needed on my part. They just look at each other and can't help but smile and giggle together. Their ceremony was full of heartfelt words and lots of tears. It was a pleasure to witness and exactly why I enjoy what I do so much. Thank you Erika and Seth for being everything I love in my couples and more.
It is always an honor when a couple asks me to document their wedding day. That feeling is only multiplied when that couple happens to be our family. Holly is my husbands cousin, and just an all around rad chick. In fact, her entire family is just awesome and we love them so much. I was so excited when I heard Holly and Mike had gotten engaged. We all knew it would happen sooner or later, we just didn't know if it would be sooner or later, haha. So when they got engaged everyone was thrilled. Mike is just as awesome as Holly and they are definitely a fantastic match for one another. They share the same sense of humor and passion for travel and outdoor adventure. That they chose to marry in Tahoe was a surprise to no one. It was a beautiful day in Sugar Pine Point State Park and the lake sparkled its brilliant blue as the backdrop to the ceremony. All in all it was a wonderful day and one I am so happy to have been a part of. Love you guys!!
From the moment that Shannon and I first spoke, she kept saying "I feel like everything is just falling into place!! All my vendors just feel right!". I can't stress enough how important this is. Your wedding is such a special day, you want to surround yourself with people that make you feel calm and comfortable. That is another reason why engagement sessions are so awesome!! The three of us get a chance to chat, learn about each other and really get comfortable. Shannon, Erich and I had a lovely time during their engagement session, even though the wind did not seem to want to cooperate! They brought their adorable puppy and we walked around chatting and taking photos. When their wedding at the Westin in Sacramento rolls around next May, they will be pros :) I can hardly wait!

Meghan and Jonah are just about the sweetest couple you could ever meet. They are high school sweethearts, and obviously head over heals for each other. They had an intimate, low key wedding at Haggis Oaks Golf Course with their family and friends on the fourth of July, complete with a sparkler exit! I am so happy they chose me to document this day for them.

I love these two! They are so funny, and so adorable together. They have known each other since high school, but it took some convincing by friends (years later) to go out on a date together. They both finally agreed and they have been together ever since. I am so excited to watch them tie the knot this November at the Monte Verde Inn in Foresthill. I know it is going to be amazing!
