I was about to blog Ash + Mike's awesome wedding....and then I realized I had not even blogged their engagement session, which happened on a beautiful overcast afternoon. Ash + mike were really drawn to the The Barn at Green Valley which is local to them. I can see why they love it! The Barn really is beautiful and in a peaceful setting of vineyards and hills. We had a blast getting to know each other and i feel so lucky to have been apart of their wedding day.  Thank-you Heald Wedding Consulting for connecting us!

What a perfect setting for M+M's big day, celebrating with family and friends at Vintners Inn brought on such a loving atmosphere. I just cant get enough of this gorgeous bride either!! This wedding was pure happiness!  The light coming in through the vineyard at Vintners Inn is spectacular and makes it the perfect wedding location and got us (photographers) very excited about portraits.

A month of Nova | Family Documentary Photography

family-documentary-photography-shadowing-lights

In August I captured a little piece of Nova's daily shenanigans. What a great month. We saw the end of summer vacation, she watched her sister leave for 2nd grade and she got to see her first solar eclipse. We had lots of friend playdates and cousin sleepovers. She played hard and started her final year of preschool. A magical moment of holding new born kittens for the first time ever and panning for gold in the backyard. 

Somedays it is so hard to pick up the camera, some days are crazy busy but, this is so worth it! At the end of the month seeing all these images come together is truly special. I love looking back at her sisters month  and honestly i waited too long to capture Nova's. 

December is on its way, the birthday month for both my rad little ladies and with the holidays to celebrate…. I am picking up my camera again . Documenting each day of them together or apart, a month of sisters. I cant wait!!

K + J | Wedding | Vacaville Opera House

We celebrated such a glorious wedding day at the Vacaville Opera House celebrating these two.  Perfectly put together and so full of love and family love.  It was such an honor spending my time with K+J and their family and friends.  I am excited to hear what is in store for these two young love birds. Plenty of adventure ahead i am sure!!

It was also awesome being close to home and capturing a wedding in Vacaville. I usually travel between 1-2 hours one way to shoot a wedding so this was pretty exciting and a breath of fresh air from my usual routine and a great opportunity to chat to local wedding vendors here in Vacaville.  The Opera house is a perfect spot for a wedding venue, especially in the summer months here in town... which is a huge bonus in Vacaville's summer heat.

On another note, I have been doing some reading/research and apparently it's better to blog fewer images? This is going to be hard for me because as you have notice i put a lot of images in my wedding posts but, at the same time going to save me so much time (if it doesn't take more time figuring out which to not include haha) If it does end up being a faster process.... then, hey! ... i can blog more?
