Julia and Dominic's E Session - Sacramento Portrait Photographer

I had so much fun getting to know Julia and Dominic this weekend.  Thankfully the rain held off and we had perfect weather.  These two are getting married at Castlewood Country Club in May.  I can't wait for Julia and Dominic's wedding!

Julia and Rico: Terra d'Oro Winery

I met Julia last year when she was a bridesmaid at Lacey and Ryan's Tahoe wedding.  I was so excited when Julia contacted me to shoot her own wedding shortly thereafter.  I got to know Julia and Rico better during our engagement session earlier this year and I couldn't have asked for a nicer couple to work with.  Julia and Rico had their dream vineyard wedding at Terra d'Oro Winery in Plymouth, CA.  Julia looked gorgeous and Rico looked... well... suave!

Wedding Invitation Design

I was so excited to see the designs created by Liz Magura for Julia and Rico's wedding.  She incorporated the photos from the engagement session I shot for them earlier in the year and the end result is beautiful.  Great designs Liz, thanks for letting me share.

Daniella and Ryan - Geyserville Inn

What can I say about Daniela and Ryan except that I love love love them and their family!  Daniela and Ryan were married at the Geyserville Inn.  I love to travel to wine country and this was such a gorgeous location.  Everything down to the smallest detail was beautiful, meticulously planned by Daniela and her sister-in-law Julie.  I loved the table numbers that featured some of Daniela and Ryan's engagement photos from earlier in the year.

Ah, Daniela my little supermodel, she could really work it and Ryan was so go-with-the-flow.  Couldn't have asked for a better couple.  You two made my job easy!

Karen and Richard - Grand Island Mansion

Karen and Richard were married on a beautiful day at the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove.  I feel so lucky to have had such wonderful couples this year.  Karen and Ricky, you were great to work with.  Ricky was so relaxed and Karen looked gorgeous.  Brides don't come any prettier than this.  We had a great time shooting all around the mansion.

Jen and Matt's Awesome Lake Natoma Inn Wedding

Jen and Matt were married at the Lake Natoma Inn.  I can't say enough how great Jen, Matt and the kids; Trevor, Summer, and little Gracie are.  Their wedding was a celebration not only of the love between Jen and Matt, but also the creation of a family.  Jen and Matt made the kids an integral part of the ceremony, including them in the wedding vows and the lighting of the family unity candle.  I had to hold back the tears!


Jen and Matt are both in law enforcement.  In fact, that's how they met!  They deserve some serious gratitude for putting their safety on the line for the rest of us and Jen's father made sure they got some during his toast that ended with a standing ovation for the couple.  It wasn't all mushy stuff though, this group knows how to have a good time too.  Everyone got out on the dance floor during the reception and let loose, including Trevor who had some serious dance moves!
