  • Here is the entire fashion shoot we did last Friday. Well...at least most everything. This was Nicole's first day shooting and I think she did superb. And Anne not only modeled but was shooting as well. This slideshow encompasses some shots from everyone...since that's just how we roll (my new favorite saying!) Thanks to all the girls (and guy!) you came out to help create some great images and to make our next ad and Bella Donna's next ad choice very difficult. Thanks to Bella Donna Bridal and Blooms by Martha Andrews for supplying the dresses and the flowers. And a big thank you to Linda for loaning us the use of your beautiful home. It truly is an oasis!

    Disclaimer: none of the girls (and guy) who participated in our shoot are professional models. They are real people who just love to do a bit of showing off and we love to work with them! Someday...maybe we can say we discovered a famous model.

  • Yesterday, Anne, Nicole and I got to play! We met up with my favorite models Rachel, Emily, Lisa, Shaniene, Sean and Risha - even Anne did a bit of modeling for us in our latest Sacramento fashion photo shoot. The slideshow is coming soon, but to tide everyone over (as I know Martha is on pins and needles) here are a few of my favorites.Sacramento Fashion Photos 1Sacramento Fashion Photos 2Sacramento Fashion Photos 3Sacramento Fashion Photos 3Sacramento Fashion Photos 4Sacramento Fashion Photos 5

  • The day couldn't have been more perfect! The sun was out. There was a breeze. And it was Rob and Leah's wedding day. Kelly, Cory, and I headed off early to David Girard's Vineyards. Nicole, our office manager, is one of Leah's long time friends and when Leah asked if Nicole could coordinate the day, Nicole obliged. This was great since Nicole was able to have all the bride's belongings at the winery so we could start even before Leah arrived.

    This ring shot couldn't have been more appropriate - sitting on grapes - after all we were at a winery. Great shot Kelly! (the next three images are Kelly's!)David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos
    Leah had the most awesomest shoes! Dolce & Gabbana - to die for.
    David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 2 Leah is the sweetest person you'll ever meet, and she just radiated happiness when she put her dress on and saw herself in the mirror...this day was finally here and it was becoming a reality.

    David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 4Rob was just as handsome, don't you think?David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 5 We planned a first sighting for the two of them before the ceremony...just a few moments alone. I'm glad I had a few tissues on hand as Leah was just a bit overwhelmed and a few tears couldn't be helped.David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 6After the initial few tears cleared, Leah was all smiles. I just love this image and the expression on Leah's face.

    David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 7While Kelly and I were busy with the bride and groom, Cory headed over to the reception venue to capture a few shots before the guests made their appearances later that evening. Nicole did a wonderful job getting everything set up.

As the bride walked down the aisle both Rob and Leah looked at each other with such love in their eyes.David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 10David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 11 David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 12Mitch from Forever Inspired was the officiant and I have to say, and Kelly agrees, that we both were very impressed by his ceremony and how personable he made the whole occasion.

    We shot a few more images post ceremony of the bride and groom in that delicious sunset light. The next two great images were shot by Cory.David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 15David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 16 The reception was GREAT! The liveband led by Tim Dierkes was fabulous. As photographers, we are often too busy and involved to really enjoy the reception or the music. But these guys rocked the house.

    David Girard Vineyard Wedding Photos 17 Another of my favorites - gosh I just can't get over the emotional expressions that we were able to capture. Leah and Rob during their first dance.

    I'll leave you with one last image of Rob and Leah's having fun during their reception.
