Best of The Goodness: 2010!

WOW! What an AMAZING year 2010 has been! We’ve grown so much and met so many wonderful and unique couples. This year we became “The Goodness” and spent a good part of the year traveling, from all over Sacramento to Ashland, OR, Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz, Dillon Beach, San Francisco, Monterey, and even as far as Boston, Massachusetts and we even had the opportunity to photograph Greg and Melinda at the Eiffel Tower in Paris! We feel so lucky to get to do what we do. I had a great time going through all of our work from over the course of the year and am excited to share our favorites! Enjoy!

We are so excited for 2011, there are a lot of big plans for the business, plenty of awesome couples, and much more fun to come! Happy New Year from Geoff and I at The Goodness to you!

Diego and Christina are engaged! (teaser)

Diego and Christina’s engagement shoot was the perfect cozy and wintery session. We narrowly avoided the rain and got to use some of the Capital Park’s trees beautiful colors. This teaser below is so cute and I’m not sure what kind of tree was behind them, but I want one! I love the little red berries, perfect for this time of year.

Paul and Lesley are engaged! (teaser)

Paul and Lesley are a couple of my favorite people and I am so excited they are engaged! We took their engagement photos last week at Apple Hill (one of my favorite places!) and even though it was pretty muddy, freezing cold, and on the brink of a rainstorm, everything could not have turned out better. I especially love this one below and cannot wait to share the rest.

Dylan and Katey’s Monterey beach wedding

You have never met a sweeter couple than Dylan and Katey. They are both so nice and kind-hearted and we felt honored to capture their beautiful wedding in Monterey, CA. It was a gorgeous day and the weather could not have been more agreeable. With all these frrrrreeeezing temperatures we’ve be having lately, it sure makes me wish I was back there!

I spent the morning with Katey and her sister as they prepared for the day.

Katey looked so beautiful!

Geoff was with Dylan who has an adorable little girl, Elizabeth. I just love this photo of the two of them.

Dylan and Katey’s pre-ceremony portraits are some of my favorites! The sky and water were both so beautiful and blue…

The ceremony was held on the park lawn overlooking Monterey Bay. It was a very sweet service and I love how they incorporated the coming together of their new little family of three!

We really do adore this family! We photographed Meghan’s wedding last year and Just over a week ago we got to see the whole family again for a big group family portrait session. They are ALL the sweetest! I especially love this one of the sisters. I’ve got three sisters of my own, and would not trade those relationships for the world!

I told Katey I wanted to adopt her mommy! She one of the nicest ladies! So sweet.

The intimate and cozy reception was held at Gatherings, just a couple of blocks away.

Elizabeth was so cute, helping her new mommy with her train.

There were some very touching and funny toasts to the happy couple.

There were LOTS of little ones there to party!

This is totally how my sister and I dance too!

Congratulations again, Dylan and Katey! Your wedding day was so full of love and family. We are so grateful to have been a part of it. We hope you have a long and happy marriage and I’m sure it won’t be too long before we see you again!
