Enjoy exploring it.

Charles Krug Winery Wedding: Hilary + John

I couldn’t wait any longer to share the images from this beautiful wedding that I photographed last week. Hilary and John are the match made in heaven. I loved every momemnt of being there, documenting their special day.

This was the most anticipated wedding of the year for me. Partly, becuase I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make to Napa to photograph their day being 38-week pregnant. But hey, I made it there and did it very well. Hilary was a stunning bride and John was incredibly kind and good looking groom that I could ever expect to meet. This was the first time I was meeting them, as I only spoke to them on phone before John and Hilary had their destination wedding in Napa.

Travelling from their southern california home to the wine country up north, Hilary and John couldn’t have picked a better venue for their wedding. The wedding took place right where John asked Hilary to marry him during one of their recent visits, at the grounds of Charles Krug Winery. It was the perfect destination wedding for them. Black and white theme through out the wedding and reception kept the colors neutral and elegant. And the bridal party was super fun. I had the opportunity to catch up with Hilary and John while photographing their moments. John is a renowned Chef who is participating the Culinary olympics this year in Germany. Could this be any more exciting!

Hilary and John – Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I was honored and thrilled to have witnessed your joy. I am so happy for your both and I wish you the very best for the life ahead…bring it home Chef!

UC Davis Engagement Photography : Nandini + Reetesh

It all happened very quickly. Nandini and Reetesh met sometime back, pretty quickly they knew that this was it! On one special day in San Diego, Reetesh popped the question to her. They got engaged.

We went to UC Davis, Nandini’s Alma Mater, for their engagement session while Reetesh was visiting Nandini over the memorial day weekend. Despite the warm weather, tt turned out to be a nice and breezy day. We walked around the Arboretum and got some beautiful shots of the couple. Nandini looked gorgeous and so at ease with Reetesh by her side. I am looking forward to their wedding in November; I bet, they will be even more gorgeous on their big day as Bride and Groom.

Midtown Sacramento Engagement: Veronica + Rob

It started at R15, about six years ago. Lots of memories were made since then – jokes, laughs and funny moments that brought this couple even closer over years. He popped the question high up in the air, literally. He planned a hot air balloon trip in Napa to bring out the ring and ask her to be his forever. She said “yes” and then, there was so looking back.

Six years later we met at R15 where it all started for them. They were sporting out uber cool outfits representing their love for baseball. The day way great, colors were vibrant and the couple was incredibly fun. They brought Thomas (their dog) along with them for the part of the shoot when we headed to Capitol park for the pictures. Veronica and Rob’s engagement session totally got me pumped up for their winery wedding in September. I had such a great time photographing the fun moments and love the couple shares. I can hardly wait to see how gorgeous they will be on her big day at the Old Sugar Mill!

Violet’s Birthday Portraits: Old Sacramento Children Photography

I still remember Amanda and Tim’s big day! I remember walking around the garden, capturing their special moments! A few years later, I got the opportunity to photograph their beautiful baby girl Violet. I was anxious about for this session, for one, I love making memories, and the second, I had only seen her pictures and couldn’t wait to meet miss little Violet in person! She was simply adorable with her big smiles, dimples and big wide eyes. And how could I miss those cute curls! She was a doll!

I had a great time catching up with Amanda and Tim while walking around Old Sacramento with them for Violet’s very first birthday portraits. I was reminded again why I do what I do. Like I said before, I love making memories, especially when I get the opportunity to document life as it evolves.

Happy First Birthday, Violet! You are beautiful and charming just like your parents are!

Roseville Newborn Photography: Nathaniel

The joy of being a photographer is the ability to capture life as it evolves. From weddings to families and newborns; this opportunity is unmatchable.

I was anxious to meet baby Nathaniel from his day one. Finally we met on the day 9 for his newborn session. Katie and Sean, his proud parents, looked complete holding Nate in their arms. Nate’s eyes were wide open, as if he was taking in all the attention he could get at the time. I was so happy and thrilled to have captured Nate’s newborn photos that I hope his parents will cherish forever.
