Mr. & Mrs. Lapp :: Married at The Firehouse

Mr. and Mrs. Lapp were married at The Firehouse on October 20, 2017 surrounded by friends and family. Both the bride and groom got ready at The Embassy Suites before their long awaited first look near the Tower Bridge. It was such a sweet moment, followed by a fun photo adventure around Old Sacramento. Kyle and Anneliese’s ceremony was scheduled for the evening, so in order to get some nice natural light images, they opted for a “first look”, and I am so glad they did!

After guests arrived, they were treated to a candle-lit ceremony adorned with twinkle lights and the most beautiful florals by Bella Bloom. While we took a few more photos of K & A, guests enjoyed the decor, drinks and appetizers before sitting down to a delicious meal provided by the chef at Firehouse. The rest of the evening was full of dancing (thanks to DJ Ron Davis) and making happy memories before the guests of honor were showered with light during their special exit.

And I have to point out how cool those groomsmen gifts are! And make sure to look closely at the bouquet image…it contains some special family heirlooms. I am also in love with that cake and you know it tasted incredible because it was from Freeport Bakery.

Mr. and Mrs. Lapp, I hope you enjoy this sneak peek at your day. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

Fall Mini-Sessions :: Folsom Families 2017

Our first round of Fall Mini-Sessions are complete! We had a handful of Folsom families out for our first local mini-session event and they are all adorable! Some I’ve photographed before, and others were first timers. By the end of the session they all felt like old friends to me! It can be challenging getting a family and children comfortable with me in just 20  minutes of time, but we did it! Here is a little peek at our session along Willow Creek.

FYI – walking or taking photos along train tracks is illegal and considered trespassing! These tracks are not out of use – but you can contact the Placerville & Sacramento Valley Railroad company to get permission and find out their schedule before using the tracks.

Enjoy! (click to enlarge)

Engaged in San Francisco :: Alice & Kelly

Meet Alice and Kelly, engaged in San Francisco! These sweethearts live in the Bay Area, so their choice of Baker Beach with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background was a perfect fit for them. I always enjoy an adventure so traveling to SF to create this dreamy engagement session felt more like fun than work. Alice and Kelly were so easy to work with, and didn’t even flinch when a nudist (part of Baker Beach is a nude beach) almost photobombed one of their shots! During their session we saw at least 2 weddings, one proposal and countless naked people. Somehow we were able to work around all the chaos and get some great shots!

Enjoy this little peek at our adventure, and look for their Folsom wedding to hit the blog next June. Cheers! (click to enlarge)

Class of 2018 :: Emily

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s senior portrait season! This class of 2018 graduate is a gorgeous girl and soccer stud! Emily will be attending the University of Evansville in Indiana next Fall. We had a great time exploring the Hinkle Creek nature area and Lew Howard Park during her session. The sunset was right on time and made for some great light to capture Emily doing her thing!

Lauren + Justin :: An Old Sacramento Wedding

Lauren and Justin said ‘I do’ on 9.16.17 in Old Sacramento at one of my favorite wedding venues, The Firehouse. It was an elegant evening filled with laughter, drinks, dancing, friends and family. Lauren and her lovely ladies got ready at The Citizen Hotel. We met up with them there to capture some of the pre-wedding rituals before heading to the Firehouse to capture the groom with his groomsmen, along with all the fine details of the ceremony and reception decor.

Lauren was escorted down the aisle by two very important men in her life; her father and her stepfather. It was a sweet moment and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house as they brought her to Justin. The ceremony was touching and fun, and after a BIG kiss, Mr. & Mrs. Soanes made their way back down the aisle, ready to party! After some fun family, wedding party and bride and groom portraits, the party was on!

This beautiful day would not have been possible without the help of these great vendors:

Bella Bloom Flowers

Summer Brazell Makeup Artist

Amanda Bowen Hair Artist

Freeport Bakery

Forever Vintage Rentals

Class of 2018 :: Sydney’s Senior Session

The class of 2018 is going to have some gorgeous graduates! Sydney’s senior session was so much fun! This girl has a ton of personality and really comes alive in front of the camera. With mom assisting both of us, we had quite a little adventure around Historic Folsom. We started at my studio to get acquainted and hang up the extra outfits, then went for a walk. After hitting up a few of my favorite spots, we went back for an outfit change and finished up at dusk under the Folsom Crossing Bridge. I just love these photos! Also kind of cool that she is graduating from the same high school I went to 20 (eek!) years ago.

Engaged :: Lindsay and Trevor

Lindsay and Trevor are engaged! These two are not just clients, they are also my friends. I am honored that they chose me to be such a big part of their wedding plans. We decided their engagement session would take place in Coloma, California. The whole town is basically a state park, so there is no shortage of amazing backdrops. We had a lot of fun adventuring around the park and goofing off, but also captured some pretty amazing shots, in my humble opinion! I can’t wait for their wedding next year.

Rochelle + Justin :: Married at The Firehouse

Rochelle and Justin were married at The Firehouse on 9/9/17. This is a special date for me because it is also my wedding anniversary! I’m so excited to share their special day in photos with you. These two are just adorable, wouldn’t you agree? I had such a hard time narrowing down images for this sneak peek. One of my favorite images is of Justin, when he first sees Rochelle coming down the aisle. I am sure he just got a bug in his eye! I love how the older ring bearer is trying his best to get the flower girl and younger ring bearer down the aisle…they had plans of their own! All in all it turned out to be a great day and even better evening as guests danced under the stars and twinkling lights.

Their wedding day would not have been so amazing without the help of these fine folks:

Venue: The Firehouse Restaurant

Floral: Party Petals Floral Design

DJ: Cope Entertainment

Makeup: Diana Cortez

Hair: Corina Nelson at Spanish Fly Hair Garage

Cake: Tami Fuller

We hope you enjoy this peek at The Tackett’s fabulous Firehouse wedding! Click to enlarge…

Dina and Jason :: A Firehouse Wedding

Meet Dina and Jason. Their Firehouse wedding took place with their closest friends and family on August 26, 2017. They spent the morning at the exquisite Viaggio Estate Winery getting ready for the big day. Guys on one side of the house, girls on the other! After everyone was primped and perfect, we headed to The Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento. Guests were able to sign a wine barrel and a custom piece of art for the couple, and were treated to little jars of candy as their favors and seat holders. Lots of flowers and twinkling lights made for an absolutely gorgeous evening. As the night progressed, the dance floor got very busy, including a dance off between a ring bearer and the bride!

Congratulations to Dina and Jason and their families! It was an honor to share your day with you. Enjoy this sneak peek (click to enlarge).
