When Michele told me she met Jim gaming- I was like huh? For as much time as I spend on a computer you would think I would be a little more on the up and up… but alas I gave up this type of entertainment back in the original Nintendo days. I must admit World Warcraft sounds way more interesting than Tetris! I love that they met doing something they both love! It is amazing how the world brings two people together. That has to be one of the most original ways to meet the love of your life! Jim and Michele have such a sweet energy together. I am so excited for their big day!
I was so excited to hear the news that sweet baby Samantha is here! We did her photos at just six days old and besides a few adorable little cries, she slept through just about everything. I love her Owl themed nursery and its’ amazing tree mural with a momma and baby owl- so sweet.
Sam couldn’t be more beautiful and perfect! Congrats Camille + Reid!!
I was so excited to get together with Allana + Peter for their engagement photos. The redwoods at the UC Davis Arboretum were the perfect setting- especially since they both studied at UC Davis. We spent most of the shoot just laughing and having a good time! I loved that Allana brought a few things for a pick-nick styled look and a nice dressed up look. These two are very laid back but sure do clean up nicely! 😉
Congrats Allana + Peter! Looking forward to your big day!!
We know Lauren from Jacks Urban Eats and were so stoked to photograph her big day! She always has a huge smile on her face and now I know why! Lauren and her Marine, Greg have way too much fun for their own good! …but that’s what great relationships are made of- lots of love and laughter! Lauren + Greg were married at Brookshire Gardens in El Dorado. It was an absolutely beautiful day. Vintage eye candy was around every corner, from the rustic barn, old books, to the vintage photographs of family on the tables. Needless to say, this couples loves their country and red, white, and blue touches were everywhere. I love the antiqued wood USA flag they used for guests to sign in. What a great idea to have your photo booth set up so everyone can instagram the pictures they take- brilliant! More then anything what I loved was how goofy and fun Lauren + Greg are together, how Lauren danced with her feet on her dad’s feet the whole father-daughter dance, and all the joy on their friends + family faces literally all day long!
Congrats Lauren + Greg!! Here’s to many years of Love + Vadering 😉
Oh, I just love how cute and squishy newborn babes are!! Little Miss Raelynn is one of the cutest! There is something so special about those first few days with your newborn in your home. Could her parents be more in love with her sweetness! Congrats Jon + Kia 🙂
