A CALIFORNIA COUNTRY WEDDING // NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // SACRAMENTO, CA

Mike and I had the pleasure of photographing high school sweethearts, Heather & Mikes beautiful country inspired wedding in Sacramento, CA.

Their wedding took place at Crawford’s Barn towards the end of September.

The morning started off crisp and cool, the bride was worried about a down pour, but all of her supporting bridesmaids kept telling her it brought good luck on her wedding day!

There were few sprinkles leading up to the ceremony, but the second they said “I do!” the sun began shining! Perfect timing for us to capture family and posed pictures outside.

Let me tell you, not only was the venue gorgeous (and absolutely perfect for a country theme, hence it was literally inside a huge barn), but the decorations were perfect!

The bridesmaids and groomsmen were so easy going and all the guests made us feel so welcome! 

Every detail of this wedding was planned by the bride and groom themselves, it was a day filled with laughter and love. The bride was truly glowing, you could feel the love between Mike & Heather throughout the entire day and night.

(For their wedding, Mike was able to capture some video footage. I will attach the link below!) 

Congratulations Heather & Mike!!

TISH & JOHN – FAMILY RANCH WEDDING // NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // AUBURN, CA

When I first met with Tish & John I could totally sense the love and compassion these two had for each other. The smiles were endless and the laid back personalities were so enjoyable! The way they were talking about their wedding and venue just sounded like an absolute fairy tale.

Tish and John planned a beautiful ranch style wedding at their own horse ranch in Auburn, CA. They expressed that they were more interested in the candid shots as opposed to the planned and posed pictures. When we arrived around 3 in the afternoon, they started with a brunch for their closest friends and family members. It was a catered personal brunch with tons of delicious home-style food. 

Following the brunch was the ceremony. Tish made an entrance down the grand staircase and over to her handsome groom, all while having roughly 200 guests there to witness and support.

Don’t let the guest count fool you… This was one of the most intimate and personal weddings I have attended. The love for each other and everyone there was truly endless. I hope you enjoy some of the images from this beautiful ranch style wedding. (This was Bella Rosa’s first time making a video… It turned out beautiful. Videography is soon to come.)

BRIDAL BOUDOIR // NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // COLFAX, CA

I was so thrilled when Shayna, a childhood friend, contacted me to do her bridal boudoir session for her soon to be husband! I was even more excited when she said she was bringing her wedding dress!

She arrived with full hair and makeup complete. She had a huge bag full of shoes and gorgeous pieces of lingerie in one hand; and her dress in the other. We hardly wasted any time before we began.

Shayna was so comfortable in front of the camera. Her poses flew naturally and I knew immediately she was rockin it! We did several poses in a handful of different outfits, one of which was a San Francisco 49ers Kaepernick jersey (her hubby’s favorite).

Then it was time to put on the dress…. I have never seen more sparkles on a wedding dress in my life! She put on the gorgeous Disney Princess style dress and she was glowing! She reminded me of Marilyn Monroe in quite a few of the shots we got… Just a simple classic beauty!

This might be my favorite boudoir session thus far! Does she not remind you of a Victorias Secret model?

Trying to pick a date for November Boudoir Marathon! Perfect time to get your images done and printed onto a book, calendar, etc. in time for the holidays :]

This session took place in Colfax, CA in the early afternoon. All natural light.
