Our Very Favorite Moments of 2014 { Sacramento Wedding Photography }

2014 was a pretty great year around these parts.  Being a Sacramento wedding photography specialist made for meeting some wonderful and incredible people, having a whole bunch of fun and make pretty pictures that make me so proud of the work Dustin and I have done together.  I am so grateful for this job, grateful for the couples that welcome us into their lives for such an amazing time and for the history we get to preserve for them.  We traveled up and down California this year making images and I couldn’t have been happier with how things turned out.  Here are some of my favorite images we made over the course of a year.  These are the ones that stopped me in my tracks and made my heart sing in the way only a pretty picture can.  Thank you to our wonderful clients.  We love you all and to our 2015 clients we can’t wait to make amazing pictures with you!

Shoot Out 2014

2014 was kind of a crazy season.  It was one full of last minute bookings, awesome couples, hilarious stories and great fun.  As I’m known to do, I put together some of the crazy fun pictures we take of each other.  I love going through all the pictures of us through the year.  Seeing the various stages of Dustin’s beard and the various colors of my hair always makes for a good time too.  But the thing I am most grateful for, is seeing another years worth of images of me working side by side with my best friend, my baby daddy and just about the cutest person I’ve ever known.  I am grateful to the wonderful couples who shared such a special part of their lives with us, and for trusting us to make images that will be cherished for generations.  I am so grateful for the hugely talent group of vendors we get to work with and all the awesomeness they bring to the weddings we worked.  So here is a peek at some behind the scenes goodness!

The picture below kind of cracks me up.  I keep threatening to write a blog post about competing with phones and EVEN WORSE TABLETS at key times of the wedding, but yeah… I think this picture kind of says everything I would want to say.  Sacramento Wedding Photographer, Sacramento Wedding Photography, Sacramento Photographer, Sarah Maren Photography, Sarah Maren, Sacramento, Sacramento Wedding Photographer, Sacramento Wedding Photography, Sacramento Photographer, Sarah Maren Photography, Sarah Maren, Sacramento,

Jessica and Ganesh – Hayes Mansion San Jose Wedding

Sarah Maren Photography, San Jose Wedding Photography, Indian Wedding Photography, Hindu Wedding Photography, Shiek

Jessica and Ganesh had one HECK of an amazing wedding this fall.  I always love a Bay Area wedding, and this was my first Hayes Mansion San Jose wedding.  As you know, I love shooting at new locations and this didn’t disappoint!  There were so many things to photograph, so many awesome details and intimate moments.  We spent two days with this beautiful pair and their amazing group of family and friends, and it was JUST barely enough time to really capture the scope of their incredible event and their incredible love.  Jessica and Ganesh had it all and then some!  An incredible dinner the night before, two wedding ceremonies, and a CRAZY awesome party.  Add to that multiple outfits for everyone, beautiful decor designed by Anaise Events and a whole bunch of happy people and we have one heck of a wedding.  I adored all of Jessica’s outfits and her henna was INCREDIBLE!  Seriously, just look at the detail!!

We started the morning of the wedding bright and early, but never was there a happier, more excited bride than Jessica.  The Sikh ceremony started off the day and was filled with beauty!

Dustin hung out with Ganesh as he got his turban tied and headed over to the temple.  Any wedding where the groom carries a sword and eventually gets his shoes stolen is a great one in my book!

Then were back to the Hayes Mansion for the Hindu wedding ceremony and the reception.  I was able to take some more shots of Jessica getting ready in another awesome outfit, and get some portraits of our lovely couple.  They were so easy to photograph!  It was wonderful!!

James Leo is Here! {Birth Portraits by Sarah Maren Photography}

Birth photography, birth portraits, professional birth pictures, professional birth photographer, sarah maren photography, sacramento birth photographer Sometimes, SOMETIMES I wish all I photographed was births.  Can you imagine?  Birth Portraits by Sarah Maren Photography was it for me? I would just run from birth to birth witnessing the every day miracle of life.  I think I would probably be a much more awesome person if this was my only job.  But, then maybe those every day miracles would get less miraculous?  I don’t know.  Probably not.  Babies are awesome.  Families are awesome.  Yeah, I think I would probably be more awesome too.  But, since that is not my only job, in fact it is the thing I probably photograph the least – birth photography is one of the greatest joys of my life.  And when I get to photograph the birth of some clients who are really more my friends than my clients now – well – that is just icing on the very awesome cake.  Summer and Greg are some of my favorite people ever.  They are what I like to call Legacy Clients.  I met Summer during my first ever boudoir marathon.  She rocked her boudoir session like a beast and I instantly fell in love with her.  She is so funny and charming and pretty much just wonderful.  When she called me not long after to tell me she was engaged I was beyond excited.  To be a part of her wedding was amazing.  She and Greg are delightful together.  They have wonderful families and great friends.  So when Summer told me she was having a baby!  Well, I was over the moon.  When she asked me to be there to photograph her sweet baby boy getting born I couldn’t say yes fast enough!  After months of texts and phone calls I finally got the one that said Summer was in labor.  It was late at night, and she hadn’t gone to the hospital yet.  She told me she would text me when they were on the way to the hospital so I settled in to get some shut eye.  I was SO nervous about missing the birth because of, you know, MISSING THE LAST BIRTH I was supposed to photograph, that my rest was fitful at best and filled with crazy dreams about babies and missing things.  When I woke with a start at 5am I grabbed my phone to find no messages.  I got up and got going about my day.  I was just about to get my running clothes on when the text came in.  They were headed to the hospital.  I grabbed my bag and camera and threw it in the car while texting my running buddies that I was out for the day.  I jumped in my car and hauled it down to San Jose where Summer was laboring to get James born.  I arrived a little after 9am on October 30th excited and packing a big ol’bag of red vines for those who were waiting for this baby to get here. It was go time!

Summer and Greg had a whole bunch of really awesome people in the waiting room.  Both of their parents and some of their nearest and dearest friends stayed around for what ended up being quite a long time. (First babies, what are ya gonna do?) But that waiting room was a FUN place to be so it was totally fine.  I adore these people.  And for good reason.   As an additional bonus, Summer’s mom was there with a wealth of birthing knowledge.  Not just because she had 4 kids of her own, but because she had spent several years of her life being an accomplished doula. I mean, THAT is pretty dang awesome if you ask me. Having her mama there supporting her was awesome to witness.

It took almost 20 hours from the time I arrived to the time James arrived, but it was worth every minute.  I haven’t been that tired since I had my own babies, but again, once that kid was born it was worth it entirely.  James was born on October 31, 2014 at 3:17 am and you guys, he is freaking perfect.

Theresa and Chris’ Ancil Hoffman Park Engagement Session

Ancil Hoffman Park Engagement Session, Sarah Maren Photography, Fall Engagement Session, Theresa and Chris are one fun couple! When we were planning of their Ancil Hoffman park engagement session, Chris told me that there was a little surprise in store. I was pretty sure whatever Chris brought was going to be awesome, and it was.  Chris and Theresa brought SANTA!  Since their wedding is tomorrow, December 27th, they wanted their engagement pictures to share some of the fun of their holiday themed wedding.  As fate would have it, their neighbor had a Santa suite and thus some awesome engagement pictures were born!!  On top of having Santa as part of their session, they also had the last bit of beautiful fall color.  It was delightful to walk around the park soaking up the last orange and red of the season.  I am SO excited about Theresa and Chris’ big day tomorrow!!  It is sure to be awesome!!  Until then, enjoy these super fun photos.  I hope you and yours had a WONDERFUL holiday season!!
