Let me begin this blog post by saying that I think I have found my new favorite wedding venue (from a photographers standpoint) in Northern California.  I fell in love with the old barn, turned romantic wedding chapel on the property.  Wow!  There ceremony took place just after dusk, and the only lighting was candles and twinkle lights hanging from the wreaths and barn beams (wedding photography by candle light – this was a first for me).

I shot this wedding for another local wedding photographer, Naomi Harrison.  Last year, she approached me and told me that her brother Paul was getting married and that she wanted me along with her to shoot the wedding.  It was a pleasure meeting and working with her lovely family on this amazing January wedding day.  I’m so excited to share my images from the day!  I would absolutely love to shoot at this gorgeous wedding venue again.  I hear that in the Spring, it is even more beautiful.  Here are images!

Best of 2011 in Review

January 4, 2012

It was a great exercise for me to go through all of my 2011 images and pull out my favorites from the past year.  This is my fourth full year of being a portrait photographer, and my second full wedding season, and I have certainly been blessed to have met so many wonderful people – brides, grooms, moms, dads, kids and families, over this past year.  I am so thankful for every one of you!  Thank you for making 2011 such a great year for me, and I’m so excited to see what 2012 holds for me!

If you are getting married and looking for a photographer at the Citizen Hotel in Downtown Sacramento in 2012, I have a deal for you!  Every year, I choose two premier locations that I have not shot a wedding at before, and I offer a package discount to the first couple to book  a wedding at the locations I want to feature. This year, I am featuring the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento as well as the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg!

I LOVE the Citizen Hotel with its beautiful charm and elegant beauty.  I have shot at the hotel more than a dozen times – I hold all of my boudoir marathons at the Citizen.  I love the library area off of the lobby, and the lobby and entrance are so grand and beautiful for wedding photography.  I have been so excited to shoot at wedding here, so if you are looking for a photographer, I would love to work with you in 2012!
