Melissa & Trevor's Love Birds Session - Loomis, CA

I guess I should start off by prefacing this for all their friends seeing these... These really truly aren't engagement photos... this time ;)  All jokes aside, I spent a Saturday morning a few weeks back photographing this fun couple and had an AWESOME time.  Between all the goofy moments and sugar high fun, we got some great photos that show off Melissa & Trevor's personalities.  We kicked things off with some awesome leather jackets & Converse all star shoes on the streets of Loomis. All the years I have known Melissa, I don't think I can remember a time where she WASN'T wearing Converse! They rocked it for sure :)
A short trip up the freeway and an outfit change later, Melissa & Trevor were ready to rock it out again. This time, with a little nerdy flavor to the mix.
Melissa sure knew how to work it. The "wind blown" work was totally in her favor without even needing a giant fan to do it for us!
Seriously... let's just observe their cuteness... right here and now. and even more on the next one... Total favorites for this location!
The final stop was a spot I drive past on a semi-regular basis and had always thought how awesome it would photograph. Well, it turns out that the perfect outfit was saved for this location. A hint of R2-D2 blue worked perfectly. And yeah, more adorableness to come right here :)
And one final one, full of uber nerdy cuteness.
I had so much fun hanging out with these two and getting their adorable-ness captured forever. Thank you SO much to Melissa & Trevor for having me photograph them. It was great to see you guys again, and I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Megan & John's Love the Dress Session at Legion of Honor - San Francisco, CA

Here we are FINALLY at part three of Megan & John's photo sessions!  Part 1 & Part 2 were so much fun, and I'm SO excited for this third part to go public now.  When Megan and I originally talked, we bounced a few ideas off each other and she threw out the fact that she could still fit in her wedding dress.  Well, I was easily sold on doing a "Love the Dress" session with these two during our day in San Francisco, and the Legion of Honor was a fantastic location to do so.  We started off in a small grassy area just outside the building.
This next one is called "Megan & John were way too adorable, I couldn't choose just a few close ups... I had to put them all."
A golf course backed right up to the building, so we took advantage of the paths used for the golf carts down below the upper grassy area. The entire area is fantastic as far as structures and views go.
We got our chance to move in to the courtyard area with the fantastic columns, and the lighting was fantastic! And these two kept doing their thing, looking fantastic and adorable all day long.
I absolutely LOVE being able to capture those "in between pose" moments, such as this next one.
But seriously... these two are like a magazine ad! Love love love this next one! So much, it might just have to show up on my bridal show displays this year
And one last adorable one...
So sad to see these photo sessions come to an end, but I had so much fun hanging out with these two and getting some great images as well. I hope they had as much fun as I did!

Megan & John's Bay Area Lovebirds Session - San Francisco, CA

Last week you saw part one of Megan and John's Lovebird Sessions, and today I get to bring you part two!  A little over a week ago now, I headed out to hills (no joke there) of San Francisco where these two are currently living to check out some pretty cool areas.  We started in the Potrero Hill area where a friend of hers hand an engagement session at this fantastic "drop off" spot that showcases the city in the background.  We had a little bit of fog that day, but the view was still amazing as ever!  And i'm still super convinced Megan needs to be my personal fashion guide.  Cutest outfits EVER!
LOOOOOOVE this one. Such a photogenic couple, that's for sure.
After our time on the hill, avoiding the occasional car, and a stop at The Legion of Honor (those to come later) we finished up at Baker Beach under the Golden Gate Bridge.  The view was fantastic and the weather was just right.  Couldn't have planned for a better day!
Love, love, love it!
And I'' be wrapping things up with yet ANOTHER favorite. These two make it so hard to choose!
Be sure to keep an eye out next week for part 3. You WON'T want to miss out on those ones!

K & R's Round Hill Country Club Wedding - Alamo, CA

A few months back, I had the opportunity to second shoot for Kirsten with Kirsten Julia Photography again. Just like the first time I shot for her in Sonoma, this wedding was fun, fantastic and full of energy.  The bride & groom were an adorable couple who were far from stressed and ready to go with their big day.  We started off with some getting ready shots before K & R kicked off their day with a "first look" before the ceremony.
K was a stunning bride, that's for sure!
The ceremony was officiated by the bride's brother, which made the day even more special.
Since the couple opted for a first look, once family photos were done at the start of cocktail hour, we did a few detail shots and then it was time for the party to begin.
Once the first dances were finished, the dance party really kicked off. Complete with conga lines, inflatable instruments, and some flower girls busting out their best moves.
Thanks again to Kirsten for having me along to photograph this fantastic wedding with her! I can't wait to work with you again this upcoming July!
