Photography is super important to Danielle and I feel truly honored she chose me.  I got to know them both quite a bit over the last year and loved how comfortable Danielle became with me over the time.  She would send me pictures of planned details along the way and after all the tid-bits I was excited to see it all come together.  She and Dominic opted for a first look which I was so happy for.  The sun sets fast at this venue with their late ceremony times and I’m excited we got to capture such a variety of bridal portraits.  These two are so in love and are truly great partners and such a joy to be around.  I look forward to seeing them for years to come – I know we’ll remain friends!

Such a beautiful bride!  Christi Reynolds knows how to accentuate Danielle’s features perfectly.

I love this pre-first look moment of Dominic’s…

My second shooter Nicole snapped this shot while I was getting the main angle and I love it!

Danielle is just beautiful… I love photographing her.

I just loved all her special details.  That flower in her hair was gorgeous!

And Dominic, of course, is very handsome!

The bracelet and necklace (in the next image) were handmade from at Etsy dealer and given as bridesmaids gifts.

Casual in chucks!

Dominic’s daughter is just the cutest little girl and she loves her daddy!

She has such a timeless look to her.  She’s going to be stunning when she grows up.

The favors from California Caramel Company are seriously the most delicious treat you can give your guests!  I can attest to it!  I really wish I had one that day!

Danielle calls Dom her “lobster” and found this adorable cake topper that represented the nickname just perfectly…

Kylie and Lewie (Danielle’s nephew)… both are just too adorable…

Dom got a little choked up here… it’s such a tender moment…

Lewie trying to resist cooperating!  I love this.

Just a little smooch!

Dom wanted to include his dad’s classic GTO and I’m so glad we got to include these photos!

One of my favorites!

It had been a long day for Kylie and she had a little breakdown during the first dance.  I know you can’t see Danielle’s whole face, but I included the left image in the finals because I love how apparent the concern in her eyes are.  Eyes say so much…

The DJ got the party going!

  • Tammy Nguyen Le - Gorgeous Heather! I love the images of the bride alone and the one of her laughing. This is a beautiful venue. Oh the garter and bouquet ones were hilarious. You are so talented!

  • Jessica Angell - awww Love! My favorite is of the kids kissing! So cute! Gorgeous wedding!

  • Tom Harmon Photography - Love your detail work. And I love that car, haha. Great job.

Here are more details from Katie & Tommy’s wedding as well as their fun portrait session and reception highlights.

These are Tommy’s parents and were still honored and given special highlight during their wedding.

Kristi from The Posh Posey did an impeccable job with the floral design.  I adore her.

From the lace to the burlap, twine and buttons, the tablescapes were adorable.

Katie’s little handwritten signs on chalkboards added the sweetest extra touch.

The wedding party!

This little guy was a ham!  He was a dancing king on the dance floor later in the evening.

I just love these two.  I had the best time photographing them and had so many favorites!  Too many to choose from!

They provided games for their guests as additional entertainment.

I just love their playfulness…

This little one could dance better than most adults I’ve seen.  He is GOOD!

And yes, he’s taking off his tie and swung it around his head a second later.  I will never forget him!

Mom and daughter had a choreographed dance.  It was so fun to watch.

The Flower Farm Inn is a magical location and this early evening image shows you it’s ambiance.

They chose to include a formal sparkler exit and we had some fun with it.

I hope you enjoyed this wedding!  View part 1 here.

  • Alexa - What a stunning wedding and what amazing photography!!

 

One of my favorite weddings of the year belonged to the gorgeous Katie & Tommy.  After meeting abroad on a mission, they fell in love and stayed together over years of distance.  Finally becoming one in Katie’s home state, the event was just so fun, a joy to photograph, and meticulously designed from start to finish.  The love between this couple is extremely apparent.  It is clear they are God-centered and love and respect each other to the fullest.  They live out of state, but I hope to see them as their family grows in the future.

Ceremony: The Bridge Community Church
Reception:  The Flower Farm Inn
Hair/Makeup:  Summer Schafer
Floral: The Posh Posey
Cake/cupcakes: Karen’s Bakery
DJ: Denon & Doyle Entertainment

Katie’s belt was hand made to match the colors for the wedding and was a perfect compliment to her dress.

There’s something about this moment and the expression on her face speaks that volumes to me.  She’s often smiling and laughing so this moment of peace within her resonates.

Love this Katie!

One of the adorable little ring bearers!

Katie is a truly stunning bride!  Her flowers, designed by The Posh Posey, were a perfect compliment!

A lovely angle captured by my second shooter Sharon!

And here’s Tommy… such a handsome groom!!  And smiling the whole day.

The other adorable little ring bearer…

A special “wand” created for the flower girl!

Katie & Tommy didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony but they wanted to be near one another so we found this corner of the church where they could talk, laugh and hold hands…

And pray together.  This image makes my heart ache in a good way.

The sunflowers are in honor of Tommy’s parents who have both passed.

I mentioned how fun they were right?  Tommy is ready to go!

Another emotional moment when dad is walking Katie down the aisle.  Almost makes me tear up.

Katie surprised Tommy with a special song sung by close friends.

And they’re married!

The details in this wedding were just exquisite.  I had a field day photographing them.  I swear half this wedding post is just all the amazing details Katie worked so hard at putting together.

Her amazing bouquet.  It seriously smelled delicious.

Miss B has the most amazing blue-green eyes, embraces her curves, and has recently married the man of her dreams.  She wanted to give him an amazing groom gift of boudoir!  We had so much fun during her session.  It’s not easy to feel comfortable in lingerie in front of a semi-stranger but she rocked it!  I’m so happy for you Miss B and I look forward to seeing your family grow over the years!  Much love.

  • kelsy d - She looks gorgeous!! Fantastic photos Heather!

 

Robyn and Tony live back east and are having a destination wedding close to us in Sonoma.  Their wedding planner, Tamara J Events, chose the location (Gundlach Bundschu, Gun Bun for short) and suggested me (thanks m’lady!) as the photographer.  I had the privilege of touring the property and meeting Robyn and her mom not too long after booking.  On another wedding planning trip out here, I was able to schedule an engagement session with my adorable couple and meet Tony for the first time.  Robyn is outgoing and bubbly and full of life and Tony is her perfect counterpart.  He keeps her grounded, has a hilarious dry sense of humor and completely adores his future bride.  I had a lot of fun getting to know these two and am sooooo looking forward to the amazing day Tamara has planned for their wedding.  This venue is seriously gorgeous and I can’t wait to go back next month.

I don’t do a lot of product photography but do have a client that I work with on occasion.  The company is called Baby Emporio and they make the most adorable slip-proof baby socks and stockings.  I thought that I would share a few images of this product I’ve been working on recently.  If you’re in the market for some little goodies to cover your tiny one’s feet – or are looking for a great gift – be sure to visit their website and place an order!
