The history geek in me has a tradition of visiting the state capitol and taking a tour whenever I travel to a new state. So imagining a California State Capitol wedding was a dream which Pineapple Petals Studio brought to life, just in time to capture the blooms of the gorgeous Magnolia tree!
The texture of the cake by La Vie Douce Design and pastel shades of these macarons compliment the cherry tree blooms!
Sometimes as a creative you just have to be creative for creativity’s sake! I love using the winter and early spring months to set up a lifestyle shoot to keep those juices flowing and not become stagnant. Sometimes it’s putting together something to expand my portfolio and other times developing new skills! So when Jess from Polish & Pout told me that one of our favorite Roseville locations was filled with a field of beautiful wildflowers, I grabbed my first available date to make something happen
Our model, Alex, was amazing and did her own styling from her Lavender & Lace Vintage shop! She and her sister search for vintage clothing that they can update to create new modern pieces!
You can’t even tell that she’s standing in the rain!
As always, Polish & Pout never lets me down! Jessica’s hair and makeup skills blow me away!
After getting completely soaked, we loaded up the car and started driving toward the sunshine. Right down the road, the clouds opened up to show off this rainbow!
I felt like I was at an Anthropologie lifestyle shoot! Just love everything about it!
This beauty was moving away so I had to grab her for one last coffee date and makeup + hair! A newlywed herself it was also the perfect opportunity for a quick bridal shoot. Winter is definitely on its way and she rocked this cold, glowing look!
We kept her skin really fresh and glowing with a pretty, natural smokey eye for contrast!
It’s always a thrill to be featured, especially by amazing sites like Swooned and Aisle Society! But I’m even more excited to now be able to share all the prettiness with you!
Amy from Bee, Leaves N’ Love dreamed up this beautiful shoot to showcase some of her favorite flowers and designs. She started with a color palette of blush and cafe au lait (cream ;-) and watercolor and silk textures. From there she put together an amazing creative team to bring it all to life–my photographer’s dream come true! Just look at the pictures and see if you don’t feel transported to old world Italy!
Based in northern California, in the little town of Grass Valley, and available for travel. Locally from Nevada County, Tahoe, Roseville, Sacramento, Napa, San Francisco, Bay Area, Chico, and Redding and down to Los Angeles, Newport Beach, Malibu, and San Diego are some of the places California has to offer. But I’m not only a northern California wedding photographer, I’ve had the joy to travel to amazing places like Seattle, Portland, Vancouver BC, San Antonio, Houston, Pennsylvania, New York, Washington DC, Boston, and Virginia. And now that I’ve traveled to Albania, Rome, Florence, Venice, and the shores of Italy and over to Paris, France, I can’t wait to go back and capture more memories on film! Passport in one hand and a camera in the other!
