As I walked in the front door of April’s childhood home, I knew instantly this wedding was going to be something special.  April was surrounded by her sisters and bridesmaids as they helped her get ready for the day.  Around the corner was her mom helping get food ready for after the ceremony and down the hall were her nephews, watching movies while they waited.  Mike and his groomsmen got ready across the court at a family friend’s home and family on both sides were lending a hand to get the area ready to go.  April’s brother walked her down the aisle, as a seat was saved in the front row for her father who is no longer here with them.  April and Mike’s vows were the perfect start to their new adventure together, which has already taken them on trips around the ocean and beginning a new adventure in life together in Arizona.  These two were meant to find each other, and will have many new adventures (and geocaches) to find together!

When I’m not working with couples, I love doing family portrait sessions!  Nothing is more fun than an extended family getting together to capture these moments together.  This particular group of families I have been lucky enough to know over the past few years and have even had six of the grand daughters as my students over the years.  It was so much fun to see them all outside of the ballet room as well as meet more of their family members.  Gibson Ranch County Park was the perfect area for this group of 19 (and one dog!) on a Sunday evening, and they all came together as one great looking bunch!

Just a few short months after photographing Matt’s proposal, I received an e-mail from Mayra excited to begin planning their engagement session.  With the Autumn weather upon us, we decided to head up to the Apple Hill area.  We arrived as the shops were closing, allowing for the perfect area to wander and explore the area of High Hill Ranch.  After wandering a bit, we found a perfect spot between the trees that happened to also be the parking lot area!  The lighting in the area was amazing, and a perfect location for the adorable picnic style set up Mayra had planned.  As the sun began to set,  we headed over to Madrona Vineyards to capture the sun setting behind them.  It has been so great getting to know these two over the past few months, and I know they are going to have a gorgeous destination wedding in their future!

Ashley & Ben’s wedding day could not have been any more perfect for the journey they were about to begin.  Their story began with a soda at the park and turned in to falling in love, building a family and now becoming husband and wife.  The next chapter in their love story was about to be written, starting at The Ridge Golf Club on an Autumn day that was absolutely beautiful.  Ashley & her girls were gathered in the bridal suite and the room was buzzing with excitement for the day ahead.  Little E made her way from the bridal suite down to where Ben and his groomsmen were tucked away, and it was a special sight to see Ashley & Ben share a special moment with their daughter before saying their vows.  Before they knew it, it was time for Ashley to walk down the aisle and let the new chapter begin to be written.
Ashley & Ben were surrounded by friends and family from all points of their lives, ready to love and celebrate with them for their new adventure ahead.
Congratulations, Ashley & Ben!  Let the adventure begin!

mmproposalblog-1I received a call on a Monday from Matt, searching for a photographer for the following evening.  He was on the hunt for a photographer to document the very big moment when he asked his girlfriend Mayra to be his wife.  It had been a bucket list item for a very long time to photograph a proposal so I was very excited that Matt and I were able to chat!
I met Mayra’s sister at the Capitol Rose Garden the next evening, and she was putting the finishing touches on the perfect spot for this special moment.  Family members picked a spot where they could watch the big moment from a distance without being spotted.  Everything happened so quickly, and it was such an honor to be there to capture this special day that forever marks the start of their wedding day planning.

kmwedblog-68Katie & Max were simply as cute as could be on their wedding day.  These two started their journey back together meeting through a mutual friend that attempted to set them up as dates for Junior Prom in high school.  While the date to prom was unsuccessful, a friendship on social media began and slowly turned in to so much more.  These two have been on many great adventures together, from working as Camp Counselors together at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center to journeying to the University of Wyoming for degrees in Engineering.  Katie & Max’s wedding day was as perfect as could be.  Their day together couldn’t have been more perfect, from the ceremony at St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church in Auburn to the beautiful reception at The Flower Farm in Loomis.  All the little details these two put in to their wedding day truly made it the best day ever and the perfect kick off to their best journey that was about to begin.
Congratulations again, Katie & Max!
