Christina and Brent’s rainy-day dancefest wedding!

I’m so happy to finally post Brent and Christina’s wedding photos! As you may know Christina is my oldest sister and I am so thrilled that she married the charming, caring, and comic-loving Brent. Not only were Geoff and I bestowed with the honor of photographing the event, but I was also a member of the bridal party! (busy day!) Geoff did an AMAZING job leading the wedding photography. I sure love him lots.

Christina’s day began with all of us getting prettied at Austin B. Morgan Salon in Elk Grove.

Sophia Gersalia of Mary Kay beautified our faces with her awesome cosmetic skills.

Then it was off to the Sacramento LDS temple in Folsom. It was so great to capture the moment of the newlyweds coming out of the temple doors as husband and wife for the first time.

As luck may have it, Mother Nature decided to plop the last rainy weekend of the season right on their wedding day. Well, that just gave us an excuse to buy 9 funky umbrellas and have fun in the rain!

We stopped by Brent’s parent’s farm (the original location of the reception before bad weather news) and were able to capture some fabulous photos out in the field.

This crazy couple kicked off the reception with an impeccably choreographed first dance that had the crowd going wild!

Christina always said that the one thing she wanted people to do at her wedding was dance…and they DID! Matt Brys of Extreme Productions wasВ hilariouslyВ entertaining and knew how to keep the partying alive!

The couple ended the evening with a fantastic sparkling exit!

Congratulations again and welcome to our crazy family, Brent!

В Shawn and Lindsey are such a cute couple and Geoff and I really enjoyed getting to know them better atВ theirВ engagement session. We started at the playground of McKinley Park in East Sacramento (oh, how I love playgrounds).

When I got home and started uploading them to my hard drive, each and every photo made me smile bigger. You can just feel the love these two have for each other. Love it!

Allan & Lacey’s Engagement Session

Geoff and I had a blast shooting Allan and Lacey’s engagement session on Friday. We kicked things off by stopping in to one of the couple’s favorite hangout spots, an awesome pub called Fox and Goose. The light in this place was seriously glowing and beautiful!В After the pub we explored the surrounding few blocks of Downtown Sacramento.

Lacey and Allan are adorable. Their personalities seem to meshВ perfectlyВ with one another and it comes through in the photos. I couldn’t stop taking them! Their engagement gallery has a whopping 80 images. I had such a hard time even trying to keep the images in the post down to a reasonable number. Allan and Lacey, you guys were great and we cannot wait to shoot your wedding in May!

Enjoy the photos below and please take a look at the gallery to see more of Allan and Lacey’s awesome love!

Christina and Brent are getting married!

I’ve been waiting to post these images until the new blog was up, and now that it is I finally get to debut Christina and Brent’s engagement photos. This was such a fun session. The locationВ we found in El Dorado Hills was AMAZING. The grass was a wonderful spring green and the natural surroundings were beautiful. Christina and Brent are so very much in love and it shows so well in these photos. I’m really looking forward toВ theirВ wedding in May! Congrats Brent and Christina!

Welcome to!

It has been a big couple of days! Yesterday I launched the new and today I am proud to announce my new blog. Not only is it finally under my own domain, but this layout is waaay better that my old blog, with its skinny columns that only let me post little bitty photos. So limiting! The new blog’s got a wide column so you get to see the photos BIG! Love it! I thought I would debut the wide-ness by showing off one of my favorite photos from a portrait session I recently did. (More of this session coming soon!) I think his expression pretty much sums up how I feel about the changes on my sites. JOY!

Oh…what a beautiful day!

Things have been pretty amazing and busy for me lately, but IВ couldn’tВ help but take some time to oogle over how b-e-a-utiful it was outside today. I treated myself to a little nature walk down by the river. I haveВ alwaysВ enjoyed exploring my surroundings and observing all the little things I might not always notice. Seriously, It has been a LONG time since I have done this. Of course I had to capture some images to share the beauty. Enjoy! Oh, and go out and daydream at some clouds!
