Ringing in the New Year with a Dream Come True!


I am so excited to share this with you! Earlier this year we did a HUGE shoot for the Downtown Sacramento Partnership for their new marketing campaign. Seriously, I can’t tell you how awesome that shoot was. We had a great time for two days going to some of our favorite places in Sacramento and making awesome pictures with even more awesome people. You can see the pictures all over downtown, as well as loads of local magazines and of course the DSP Website. But the loves at DSP made my dreams come true by publishing an amazing 2012 calendar featuring the photos we took of my favorite place in the world. I love that I got to photograph some of my favorite people ever (hey, when you have to provide your own models, you bring your friends and family) in the town I adore. And now seeing all of that together in a calendar is just incredible! I feel so blessed.

A huge thanks to all those who were involved with the shoot, and an especially huge thanks to the DSP for letting me make a love letter to Sacramento. I LOVE this town, and feel so blessed to live and work here. Thank you to all of our 2011 clients as well. We had a great year and look forward with loads of anticipation to 2012!

Happy New Year!!!

Shoot Out 2011

It’s that time of year again kids! Time for me to share all the weirdo pictures we take of each other while we are working. There are A LOT this year… like too many to share. But this is from 30 weddings and engagement sessions and commercial shoots and family portraits and holy moly we took a lot of pictures this year. Not only that, but we’ve got to work with so many awesome couples and so many amazing vendors. We had such a great year, and feel so grateful to do what we love with people who rock!

Testing photo booths has become a goldmine of shoot out photos.


As always, we want to thank all the awesome people we have been so blessed to work with. While I wasn’t carrying a baby around in my belly this year we still had a great time with our friends. Thanks to my beloved bestie Bethie B for shooting a wedding with me, the fabulous glamazons LeiLani and Renee of Hello Glam for making so many of my brides so very pretty, the incredible Shannon of Flourish for making so many wedding so darn pretty, and the awesome team of Kate Miller Events for making my job so damn fun! We love you guys and can’t wait to work with you lots more in 2012.


We also had the joy of spending a few days with our lovely Tammy Swales while she was in Califoria this fall. She was a peach and came and hung out with us while we worked a photo booth – and dang that girl is fun.


And of course we have to show some love to Francisco for rockin’ our Sacramento photo booths and being a great assistant.



Thanks to all of our awesome clients for having us be a part of your weddings, portraits and projects. We so enjoyed this year, and look forward with much anticipation to 2012! Check out our SLIDESHOW HERE or below for more from one fabulous year!

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year! (out of the office, yo!)

I’m sitting at my desk, trying to plow through the last of an inbox that seems to multiply overnight and thinking about how wild this year has been. Despite how crazy this year has been, it has been equally awesome. But I can’t lie to you… I’m really excited about turning my computer off… FOR THE NEXT FOUR DAYS! That’s right kids, it’s my Christmas present to me! I’m shutting down the computer, turning off the phone and closing the door to my office until Tuesday, December 27th. Dustin and I shot 31 weddings this year and 35 engagement sessions, we shot the new campaign for the Downtown Sacramento Partnership (more on that later), some magazine pieces and family portraits. So, we’ve been BUSY! And honestly, I really miss my babies. I am very excited to just be a mama for the next few days.

With that, I wish you all the HAPPIEST of holidays! We hope you and yours enjoy this most wonderful time of the year. We will be back next week because HELLO! I’m SO behind on blogging and have SO much to share. I think I’ll start with our yearly shoot out slideshow. :) See you next week!!

Tammy and Brian’s Awesome Day After Session


Tammy and Brian are so awesome! I was thrilled when they decide to do a day after session at their beautiful home in LaVerne, California. These two have such great style! I love all the art they had in their home too. Basically, it was dreamy.


Seriously! How amazing are these two? I just love them and am so grateful we got to photograph their stunning wedding and their awesome day after session! Check out the SLIDESHOW HERE or below for more of their day after session!
