Get ready for a seriously EPIC engagement session coming up! Mike and Melissa are one rad couple and we had an ama-za-zing time with them on Friday. I cannot wait to share the oh-so-many more awesome photos of these two. Stay tuned!

What is not to love about being in an amazing city with an equally amazing couple for some photo magic makin’? Chris and Shannon met on the ski lifts in Tahoe (awwwww) and now they live together in San Francisco. So of course SF was the perfect setting for their engagement photos! It was a lovely, sunny (albeit windy) day in the city, just perfect for chasing all over taking photos. We started out a couple blocks from where Chris and Shannon live in a pretty green park. Don’t you just loooove springtime?

After walking around the neighborhood for a bit, we went up to Twin Peaks, the location where Chris popped the question! There is such a wonderful view from up there. The wind was a little intense though!

Afterwards we headed to the beautiful Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.

Isn’t Shannon’s ring wonderful!? Nice work Chris!

I’m kind of in love with this next photo. Of, course these two were just so dang cute, they made it incredibly easy.

After we left the Park, our last stop was Baker Beach for some pretty sunset photos.

Awwww…Shannon and Chris, you two just warm my heart. We loved hanging out with you in San Francisco and cannot even begin to tell you how STOKED we are about your 10/10/10 wedding in Boston! Thank you again for being your wonderful selves!

Jeff and Nichole’s wedding was a blast! It took place in Lockeford, CA which is a small town southeast of Sacramento. It was simply a gorgeous day too…perfect weather for getting married! Jeff and Nichole’s love is really inspiring. It’s so easy to see that they are made for each other — they are both down-to-earth, super nice, great people. That’s probably why they were engaged not too long after they started dating. When you know, you know, right?!

I loved Nichole’s look for the wedding. Isn’t her hair so cute and unique? And I do love me a good chunky beaded necklace.

Jeff was looking pretty dashing himself! Geoff took the guys across the street from the church to this great field.

After we were both done taking pictures of the ladies and ‘gents separately, it was time for Jeff and Nichole’s first look.

We stole away for a bit into this little chapel on the church grounds. It was so adorable in there and the window light was wonderful!

Then we got the group back together for some big bridal party shots!

Here they all wanted to be Rockettes!

I love how joyful and happy our couples look in the post-nuptiual portraits. Jeff and Nichole are no exception!

The reception was held in the hall on the church grounds. The colors were so bright and vibrant! Loving the magenta!

Ohmigoodness, I looooved Jeff and Nichole’s cake topper. Of course, I am a little biased. It was created by the same Etsy artists that made the topper at mine and Geoff’s wedding, Bunny with a Tool Belt. I highly recommend her for adorable sculptures and cake toppers.

This next one has got to be my new favorite bouquet catch photo EVER.

Huge congratulations to Jeff and Nichole! We both wish you both so much happiness and we are so glad that we were apart of your wedding day. Thank you so much. Take care of each other you two!

So many teasers lately! That’s because we have a ton of awesome stuff coming down the pipe. Take for example, Josh and Kelly! Kelly is one of my good friends from my Sorority days at Sac State. I am SOOOO excited that Geoff and I are photographing their wedding in October. I’m also excited to share more photos from their midtown engagement session with their rad cruiser bikes and their (very!) little doggie, Lucy. Come back soon for more!

Matthew and Diane…oh how we love them so. They are so cute and sweet and funny! We had a great time with them at their engagement session. They are made for each other and so in love, they made taking photos easy-peasy! They had the awesome idea of shooting at the Tower Theatre which was great because I’d been wanting to shoot there for some time now!

These two are so cute and smiley! We were loving it!

Diane tried so hard to keep a serious face for this shot. I’m actually glad they both burst into laughter ’cause now I can make a rad animation!

Can you believe these were taken in front of a Walgreens?!

After the downtown shots, we headed down the Sacramento River levee, a place that Matthew and Diane visit often, as it is not far from where they live. I am soooooo glad we went here. The colors were so gorgeous. Plus a hilarious (and possibly intoxicated) passerby decided to offer us some photography lessons. How was this man such an expert in photography? In his own words, “My brother works for Pixar.” SOOOO funny!

Seriously, Matthew and Diane, you two are awesome! Thank you for being such a great, down-to-earth couple. I cannot even begin to say how excited we are for your wedding in June. It’s going to be in Fairy Tale Town people! The photo opportunities have my mind spinning. Oh and did I also mention how excited I am that Diane is MAKING her wedding dress?! How cool are you Diane?! We absolutely cannot wait for the big day!!
