Alexandra & Jason wanted a woodsy vibe to their engagement photos, and Redwood Regional Park in Oakland provided the perfect backdrop! They also wanted to take photos with their adorable cat, Pandora. We were a little nervous about Pandora running off into the woods never to be seen again, but alas this was an extremely well behaved cat believe it or not!
Melissa and Torrence booked us for their engagement shoot back in 2019 and we were planning for it to take place in early April. However, due to the COVID-19 shut down we kept putting it off, until it finally happened in June!
This was such an exciting opportunity. I was lucky enough to be invited by Strelitzia Flower Company to participate in a Styled Shoot at Antiquité Maison Privée in midtown Sacramento.
Kaylee and Cody’s engagement shoot took place at Marshall’s Beach in San Francisco. They knew they wanted their shoot to take place at a beach but they just weren’t sure which beach to pick.
Malvina and Andrew decided to have their engagement shoot in Emerald Bay and we are so glad they did. Normally the beach area of Emerald Bay is pretty busy, but we did the shoot on a weekday in the middle of May and due to COVID-19 closures we basically had it all to ourselves.
Mira and Kevin’s Northan California coast engagement photoshoot at Montara State Beach was truly a magical experience, if you can’t already tell from the photos themselves.
Sam reached out to me about editing together their video and I was happy to be able to help them preserve the memory of their beautiful day. Even though I didn’t film it and I wasn’t there, after watching their footage and hearing their heartfelt vows, I really felt connected to their story and really tried to make that shine through in their video.
Their wedding took place on Feb. 1, 2020. Anytime you plan an outdoor wedding in February its a risk because you never know if it is going to rain. However, they lucked out and it turned out to be a beautiful day.
Vith and Scott’s wedding took place in August 2019, and boy was their wedding a blast. Don’t get me wrong, it was a lot of hard work too. Their wedding began at Morris Chapel on the Campus of the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.
I won’t say too much about their story, because it’s told in their video above, but I’ll just give you a preview that these two met when they were toddlers in Sierra Leone where the groom’s grandmother used to babysit both kids. Truly an inspiring and fated love story!
On September 14th, 2019, we had the pleasure of photographing Margarite and Jesse’s 25 year wedding vow renewal ceremony and celebration at the The Citizen Hotel in Downtown Sacramento. The couple contacted us online with a clear vision in mind of what they wanted for their special day. This made capturing every aspect of the event including the rooms and location before the celebration, individual photos of the bride and the groom while they were getting ready, the ceremony, and […]
Patti and Michael had an intimate wedding and opted for Philippe Studio Pro’s marriage photography and wedding video service at the Rocklin Event Center in July 2019. It was a hot day, but that didn’t stop everyone from having fun. It’s so obvious that Patti and Michael are head over heals for one another. I was so excited to capture the moments in both photo and video.
The wedding of Annonciathe and Adelit took place in Sacramento on June 1, 2019. These two are so sweet. I loved their wedding because it was filled with some of the staples of a Rwandan cultural wedding, including a negotiation between the bride and groom’s family, great speeches, East Africa food and of course traditional Rwandan dancing.
It was a blistering 95 degree summer afternoon during Kylie and Freddy’s engagement shoot at the California State Capitol and old town Sacramento area. But that didn’t stop these two love birds from showcasing their love for one another during their engagement shoot.
The wedding of Alton & LaTaunya happened at the Valley Hi Country Club in Elk Grove, CA, a beautiful suburb in the Elk Grove area. Valley Hi Country Club houses a pristine golf course, and is an excellent choice for weddings because they have a lake area, and a great reception area with indoor and outdoor options.
It’s important to know what questions to ask when meeting with a wedding photographer for a free consultation.

Here is a guide to the questions to ask during a consultation categorized into five areas: (1) experience level; (2) photographic style; (3) the […]
