Megan and Jamie are pretty awesome.  They are totally in love, have a ton of fun together, have a beautiful Weimaraner named Flower, and are easy as pie to photograph.  I just love it when couples can be themselves and enjoy the moment at all times.

Home is where the heart is for these two.  We began our session at their first home together.  This was a grassy little area right outside the little house they rented.  We had a great brick wall nearby and had to use it as a backdrop.  The photo above is one of my favorites from their session.  I love the genuine moment enjoyed by all – check out Flower’s expression!

Aww… she truly is adorable!  Flower is a big part of this little family and was an important subject in our photos.

Such an adorable family…

And now a few with just Megan and Jamie…

Our next important location was Bonn Lair, a local Sacramento pub where Megan and Jamie had their first date…

We each had an Alagash White – it was an excellent and refreshing beverage on a hot day!

Our third location was their new home together.  They have a lovely backyard with lemon trees and lots of grass for Flower frolick on…

Who knew a shed could make such a great prop…

Thanks for having me you guys – I had a great time getting to know you!  See you again in September!

The overcast day above could not cloud the love of this couple on their wedding day.  They vowed their lives to one another in church with a beautiful wall of stained glass – the same church where they first met while attending preschool some twenty years ago.  Daniel had a sweet smile on his face as LeeAnn’s father gave her hand to his.  LeeAnn chose a pink theme that was carried out from the light hues of the flowers to the bold and bright shades during the reception. Guests and the bridal party danced all evening to the jams of a family friend.  Please enjoy the lovely moments of LeeAnn and Daniel’s beautiful spring wedding day!

Dresses are getting shorter! One of the hottest trends right now is the Tea-Length Bridal Gown. I believe this trend is due to the even larger trend of fun wedding day shoes. Everyone is always showing off their funky shoes in their wedding photos, why not all day long? Not only does this style of dress offer a way to show off your dancing shoes, but it allows you to dance!

Floor length dresses can be difficult, getting caught in the limo door, getting stepped on, always having to be lifted…the list goes on and on. In a Tea-Length dress, you’re all set, no lifting, no worrying! Whatever the reason, this retro-inspired wedding dress is huge this year and we hope it stays. It’s a fun new twist on wedding attire and it comes in so many styles! You can go full ballerina here, simple and sophisticated or even ball gown! Not only is this dress style great for brides, but its a staple for bridesmaids:)

This dress is for anyone; the vintage-inspired wedding, the shoe-show-off, the fun dancing queen, or that girl – like me – who’s too short for any floor length dress – we look like we’re swimming in them! Tell us what you think of this new trend:)

Does everyone remember the day where every bridesmaid dress looked like it was from the 80’s? It was as if brides were intentionally dressing their friends in the ugliest dresses they could find! Now I know everyone has a different idea of what looks good, but come on! You can’t look at your friend and see that she doesn’t look good in that style??? I’m not buying it!

Well I do believe the day of the ugly bridesmaid dress is over! The latest fashions from spring bridal runways just happens to be bridesmaid dresses – in muted tones! A new way to make the bride stand out without making her girls look horrendous is to just tone down the ever present brightly colored dresses brides usually have their maids in.

Light pinks, taupe and soft grays are already well stocked at the bridal boutiques. Even the trendiest blogs have been talking about the new dress trend blooming this spring. Check out Ruffled for their ModCloth Bridesmaid options. I LOVE ModCloth by the way, you can never go wrong with vintage and unique! Style Me Pretty has a great Look Book to offer inspiration and website links to fantastic designers showcasing muted bridesmaid tones!

I always send clients to these websites/blogs to gather inspiration for anything wedding related, they’re great, information stocked places!
