Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Crystal & B.J. || Sacramento Wedding Photography

What happens when a small town girl meets a boy from the city? They fall in love! That love then becomes a lasting relationship; they decide to get married. At least, Crystal & B.J. did! I cannot describe Crystal in my words, I’m not exaggerating! She is a sweetheart, she really is. And she just graduated from Stanford to become a P.A. He is a firefighter for the City of Sacramento. He also happens to have a line of super good looking firefighter friends who danced the night like rock stars and vowed to make the party even more memorable for the couple! Crystal’s parents amazed me. The big hug that I received from Crystal’s mom was touched me! I’m so glad, that I was at Crystal and B.J.’s wedding, capturing their special moments.

My photographer friend Mariea and I started shooting at the Citizen hotel;. If you are in Sac, looking for an awesome place to stay on your wedding night, check out Citizen hotel. So many photo ops, I couldn’t even utilize all! The ceremony took place at St. Francis Assisi Parish in Sacramento, one of the most beautiful churches you can visit in town, simply breathtaking. Then we headed to Tsakopoulos Library Galleria for the reception. The couple decided to have cake in every table as center pieces. I loved the groom’s cake; it was a firefighter’s hat.

Crystal incorporated so many personal elements to their wedding. Her bouquet had her grandmother’s cross that every lady in the family has used on their wedding day. She had also worn B.J.’s grandmother’s fur from the 40’s-60’s. Her mom’s dress was a 1940’s antique. They also encouraged their guests to donate towards children’s fund. The cute little seating cards delivered the message for them. They really made the best out of this day. They not only focused on the family details, but also they created a means for serving the community.

All I can say is that I was honored to be there on Crystal & B.J.’s big day. I have to say again that this is why I love weddings. I’m so lucky to have this outlet that allows to me to meet such wonderful people. Crystal & BJ – have fun St. Lucia

I’m excited for your new journey. Lots of love…
