I love “engagement season”!  I am in the midst of it with several shoots in the last few weeks.  I’m so excited to share images from Cami and Jesse’s session in Sacramento.  We started off at a nearby park and then made our way down to the American River for their portraits.  The wildflowers were just amazing – poppies, bluebonnet and mustard flowers.  Oh and lots of foxtails – ouch!  :)   Cami wore a gorgeous emerald green dress and the colors just popped for their session!  I am not huge into props for my sessions, but when I do use them I like to keep them fairly simple.  I have never shot with balloons in a session before, so I though it would be fun – we incorporated green and ivory balloons into a few shots… I started with five, and two popped on the way!  Darn!  My vision was balloons in a gorgeous wheat field.  It still worked out great.  LOVE these images and cannot wait for their July wedding in Lake Tahoe!

I had the pleasure of working with this beautiful couple, as a second shooter for my local fellow photographer, Nudrat Owens.  I shot the wedding with her back in December, and I’m just now getting around to posting some images from the day.

This was my second Indian wedding, and I LOVE photographing them! All of the color and the friendly people make me… HAPPY. I spent the morning with the groom and his family for preparations.  We then met up with the families at the Sikh Temple in West Sacramento for some traditions prior to the ceremony.  The ceremony itself was beautiful!  We took an afternoon break, and then headed over to the Citrus Heights Community Center for their reception. I loved it, thank you Nudrat for having me join you!

These two booked their June wedding with me a year ago over a Skype conversation. I finally met them for their engagement session this past weekend. They are super cute together, very sweet and I can tell they have fun together. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next month on the UC Berkeley campus.

Just one quick share for now, of the engagement session that I did for Chris and Victoria over the weekend.  I am in LOVE with this image of this sweet, adorable and in love couple!  More coming soon. I cannot wait for their June wedding on the UC Berkeley Campus.
