Sacramento Hyatt Regency Indian Wedding Reception: Balpreet + Brian

Balpreet and Brian’s 3-day wedding saga ended with the Reception at Downtown Sacramento Hayatt Regency. Balpreet’s understated yet elegant look and Brian’s traditional tuxedo was just right for the party. This event was gorgeously designed and coordinated by Anais event. From the lighting to the flowers to the decor and to the music – all were perfectly matched to the style of the couple.

It’s always a bit emotional for me to say goodbye to the couple at the end of the event. After a fews days of being with the family I start to feel like I’m a part of them. This was no different.

Balpret and Brian – Thank you for allowing me to capture your memories. I wish you the very best for the future ahead and I hope I get to see you again in the near future. :)) XOXO

Punjabi Wedding in Sacramento: Balpreet + Brian

Balpreet and Brian’s wedding ceremony took place at the Roseville Sikh Temple. Balpreet was breathtaking in her bridal outfit and Brian was totally a Punjabi Groom in his traditional attire. The ceremony was beautiful and witnessed by their friends and family and the loved ones. The end of it always emtional, when the parents say goodbye to their daughter and send her off with the groom. I just love all the colors, fun and emotions of a cultural wedding.

Nathaniel’s 6-month: Folsom Children Photography

I met up with Nathaniel and his parents a month ago to capture his 6-month portraits. Boy, oh boy, don’t they grow up so fast!!! He was just a little peanute not too long ago during his newborn shoot. Nate is the cutest little boy with beautiful eyes, cuddly cheeks and gorgeous smile that anyone would die for! Here’s just a few from his shoot.

The Old Sugar Mill Wedding: Veronica + Rob

They couldn’t have found a better match for each other! Veronica and Rob are such a couple! They have so much going for them – the looks, the chemistry, the love and the friendship that are unmatchable and perfect for each other.

This was my first wedding after having a baby. It would be a lie if I say I wasn’t a bit nervous going in leaving the baby at home. But I realized that my passion was still their. I loved every moment at the wedding as a photographer and a friend to Veronica and Rob.

Veronica looked amazing on her princess wedding gown. Bright red flower arrangements for her bouquet was gorgeous and added a pop of color to the background of the Old Sugar Mill. I loved the birdcage veil and I have to be honest, I never saw the shoe clips she had on her wedding shoes. They were incredible! Rob went with a Gray suite instead of the traditional tuxedo. Red-Gray-Silver was the perfect color palette for their wedding. The hallway was romantically decorated with the red up lights and silver and rhinestone accents all through out. I had a great time with the bridal party. The entire crew was so much fun to hang out with.

Their first look was so emotional! Rob was simply smitten by her looks. Later we had an opportunity to go out to the vineyard to get some beautiful shots of the newlyweds; can never be wrong with a setting sun and gorgeous grapevines in the background.

Veronica and Rob graced the floor with a John Mayer song for their first dance. If one knows my love for John Mayer (songs), knows how I felt at that moment. A little tear or two might have dropped down my cheeks. They were so in love while having fun at the dance floor.

Veronica & Rob – I am so happy for you guys! Thank you for letting me in to your life and witness your very special day. I hope you relive the day through these images.

Introducing Elan!

It has been so long since I last blogged. In case you are wondering what happened – my life changed for good in the last few months, I became the mother of a beautiful little baby boy. Meet Elan Zaman Owens, our love, our meaning of happiness!

My memory is still clear from when I found out about the arrival of our first child. We didn’t know who it was going to be, how he/she would be. The thought of having a new addition to our family was exciting enough. 15 weeks later we learned that it was a little boy who would join the Owens clan. And the anticipation began! 38 weeks and 4 days later, baby Elan arrived. As a thirty-something woman of twenty-first century, I have tasted rewards of many kinds. But the reward of being a mother is of its own kind. Today I can say that I’m a mom first and then anything else. Can’t touch this experience, can’t trade this for anything else.
