  • We met Henry and Tina last night at Aioli's downtown for a few scrumptious appetizers before heading outside for some engagement photos. It had cooled off just enough for us to have a pleasant evening. We stopped at several random spots in downtown Sacramento (alleys included) before finishing up our engagement photo shoot at the Capital Park. Here are few sneak peak engagement photos.Sacramento engagement photographer 1Sacramento engagement photographer 2Sacramento engagement photographer 3Sacramento engagement photographer 4

  • Yesterday Alyssa and Jacob were married in the Capital World Peace Rose Garden followed by a wedding reception at the Sacramento Grand Ballroom. I just love Alyssa and Jacob. Alyssa and I have many things in common - one of which is attention to detail. Alyssa planned and created the most spectacular day for her wedding. Cory and I stopped by the Ballroom first thing and captured these few detail shots before meeting up with the girls. Alyssa had a candy bar for their guests - made up of all of her and Jacob's favorite candies. Her mom did all the bouquets and floral decorations - they were awesome!Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 1Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 2Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 3Something else that Alyssa and I have in common is our love of words. She went to great lengths to share her story of how Jacob proposed while in Italy last Christmas and added it to their ceremony program. For favors, she gave each guest a small book of her favorite poems with a bookmark of an engagement picture.Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 4Her friend Lisa created the most amazing scrapbook as a gift for Alyssa - documenting friendships and stories to last forever.Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 5Alyssa wanted some traditional elements too - she wanted to have something new, something old, something borrowed, and something blue. Her dress was made by Miosa Couture (the "new"), her brooch on her bouquet was borrowed, her wedding band was her grandmother's (the "old"), and she wore the most terrific blue shoes.Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 6Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 7The ceremony was beautiful. The String Quartet performed as the bride walked down the aisle. After the vows and rings were exchanged, Alyssa and Jacob released doves into the sky.Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 8Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 9Don't you just love the feathers on Alyssa's dress?! I think the sunset light was perfect.

She had the crowd up and dancing.

What a great idea!Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 13The cake by Sheldon's was super unique - they used pictures we took at their engagement and they were placed around the cake. The ribbing on the cake matched the lace of Alyssa's dress.

I'm glad I carried a camera to the restroom!Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 15By the end of the night, the candy bar had been a huge hit. As you see the gummy bears were a big favorite!Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 16I'll leave you with a few images of Alyssa and Jacob during their first dance. Congratulations you two!Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 17Sacramento Grand Ballroom Wedding photographer 18I like to give a shout out to some of the other vendors we worked with last night - Phill from Sheffield Multimedia, Mike from Mr. DJ, and Sharon from Weddings by Design.

  • We had the pleasure of doing a fashion photo shoot of Kay Rose last night. Kay is about to release her new CD. We set out to photograph based on her lyrics of "Old Oak Tree".

    "Down to the old oak tree and lay my body down.
    And hear the rustling of the leaves, it's such a pretty sound.
    I'm wondering how on earth I'll fill this whole I've found.
    Oh maybe love is the answer, love makes the world go round."

    We shot on the ground, laying on the dirt, under the most amazing Oak tree ever, and Kay had fun throwing leaves in the air. We hope you enjoy her sound as much as we do.fashion photosfashion photographerfashion photographyfashion photos 2fashion photos 3
