Amy and Christian Engagement - Sacramento Capital Park

Well lookie here! 2nd blog in a row! I am on a roll!

I cannot describe how much I love these two! Remember when I mentioned I LOVE props during engagement sessions? Well the finally of the session was them shaking up a bottle of champange and opening it! You bet I used my zoom lens for that shot!

Amy and Christian are getting married New Years Eve and I was hesitant on taking on a job during the holidays, but for a couple to have a wedding on New Years Eve you know they are going to be tons of fun! Amy is a Colorado transplant and a hairstylist and Christian is an amazing videographer! He did my promo video in the intro of my website and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! There were many photos from this session that I love so I included many for you to view. Enjoy!

Jenny & Adam Engagement - Sacrameno Capital Park

Jenny and Adam are getting married this December at the Sequioa Mansion and I could be more excited for this couple. They are totally sweet and fun. I asked for them to write a little something something on how they met each other for the blog and their story has got me grinning from ear to ear!

Jenny: Adam and I first met the day we moved into our college dorm at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. It was the beginning of an amazing friendship. Adam and I would convince our group of friends to take trips to the beach at 2am. A common activity of ours was rollerblading up and down the Pacific coast on Highway 1. We made lots of late night trips to get Coke Icees from the 24 hour gas station. We had many conversations about life, love, and pretty much anything you could think of. Towards the end of freshman year, when I finally worked up the courage to tell Adam that I was “in like” with him and he reciprocated my feelings, I knew something really great had begun. With such a strong friendship as the foundation, our relationship took off immediately. I knew Adam was the one about one month into it. Since then, things have only gotten better. He has seen me at my best, my worst, and everything in between and he loves me with all that he has. I have never felt so right about anything in my life. He is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Adam: I left for college a goofy kid with ridiculous hair looking to learn something a little more about life. I met Jenny on our first day at school and we immediately clicked. We grew as “just friends” for about 9 months, until we finally admitted to each other that we had stopped being “just friends” months before. Since then she has been gracious enough to let me deeper and deeper into her life. From her early years to the day before we met, Jenny has shared so many details and stories of her life with me that I feel like we must have known each other for more than the 4 years it’s been. I know she is the one for me, because I can’t remember my life before she was the person I needed to tell my most important and most mundane news to. So often people say that “you just know” when you’ve met the right person. I’m usually not one to believe something so intangible, but with Jenny I have no word; I just know.

Stylized Wedding Session with Sweet Sinsation @ Old Sugar Mill

 What? Another blog entry? Yes! So I have always wanted to do a stylized shoot and I was so excited when Gigi from Sweet Sinsation Events coordinated on and asked if I would like to shoot it! It was like the clouds parted in the sky and the sun shined down upon me. haha! Well not that dramatic, but I was def excited!

Gigi expressed that she wanted to do a “Tea for two” theme and that she would like to use a real couple verses models for the shoot and asked if I knew of anyone. Amy and Christian popped into my mind right away! They are my clients and are getting married this December. We had so much fun popping champange bottles and slurping shakes together during their engagement  that I knew they were who I thought would be perfect for this shoot! A blog for their shoot will be posted later, but I want to post this stylized shoot first!

Without further adieu! My favs from the session!
