Chico Engagement Photographer: Madison and Logan

This couple!  OH MY GOODNESS!  There's some people you meet in life and a bond is instantly formed.  For Madison this could not have been more true, we met at the Chico Bridal show and instantly hit it off.  Madison was enjoying the show with her mom and swung by the booth and filled out my questionnaire.  She got stuck on the "What's you favorite movie/show?"  her mom responded "Grease duh!"  We got to chatting and instantly we just clicked.  Jena and I left with her being one of the last brides we talked to and we were stoked "If she's the only bride we book today it's a win in my book."  A few weeks later BOOM!  I had a message from her in my inbox! YESSSSS!  We set up a meeting to meet with Logan and talk about packages and pricing.  Some times meeting with the groom for the first time he may be a little quiet will let the bride talk mostly, but Logan was equally interested in getting to know us and like Madison created an instant bond.  It is no question as to why Madison and Logan have chosen forever together, they are absolutely perfect!  Logan is super laid back and fun and the way he looks at Madison its as if the world stands still for a moment.  Madison and Logan have faced many obstacles in their relationship and have grown so much closer from them it is very clear they are best friends as well as in love.

Jena and I are both so incredibly excited to capture your wedding day!  

I hope you love these images and weren't too terribly covered in mosquito bites!

 

 

Chico Engagement Photographer Deer Creek: Travis and Jessie

Where do I start with this?!  How about how amazing this day was…  Life has been flying by in the chaos of preparing to move to Texas, attending to the needs of my family, while continuing to work full time and part time.  This day was a VACATION!  Great people, great landscape, and beautiful weather in the middle of January!  When I think about California, this is California. This is what I will miss.  I’m so fortunate to have enjoyed this little bit of heaven before I move.   The air was crisp, (if a bit cold) the sun was just at the right peak, and it was time to capture magic happening in every day life.

  You know you have a great bride and groom when they are open to anything and go with the flow.  We met for breakfast at Great Harvest, cruised up highway 32 reached location and got to work.  Of course Jena was there with me being my off camera wizard helping with lighting looking at the little things and making this session a breeze.  It was a day I needed for myself to be inspired, to create and be in awe of the outcome.   It was perfect. 

Editing has been a real treat; I think I had a smile the whole time.

 Now, I’m going to stop blabbing about my experience and I hope you enjoy this gorgeous bride and her handsome groom that are just as beautiful on the inside.

 

  Travis and Jessie, I hope you fall in love with these photos as much as I have.  You both rocked this shoot and made the experience fun and different.  Jena and I are so pumped for your wedding! 

Burney Falls Engagement Photographer: Brian & Brandy September 2017

What a session!  I am in love with these shots!  Beautiful people, beautiful scenery, and great lighting!  When Brian and Brandy first met with me we spoke about where they might want to do their photos, I don't even think I let them complete their thoughts before I said "YES, LETS GO THERE!"  For months I have been looking forward to this shoot and it did not let me down.  The day was perfect!  We were able to enjoy our walk around the falls without the weather being too hot and there wasn't too many people out.  When we went out to Brian's childhood home the sun was just down enough for what photographers call "golden hour".  Brian and Brandy matched the beautiful light with some very natural sweet moments which was a pleasure to capture.  I'm pleased to share these with you all!  I hope you enjoy them! 

Chico California Engagement Photographer: Honey Run Covered Bridge, Madeline and Taylor

Hey guys!  I know I've been pretty low key these last few weeks, I've been busy planning for the Chico Bridal show.  I'm here taking a break to share with you this adorable couple whom Jena and  I had the pleasure hanging out with last Sunday.  They are simply perfection,  Both had a great spirit, with fun and willing attitudes.  We cannot wait for the wedding!  Cheers to Madeline and Taylor!  

Chico California Engagement Photographer: Sarah and Jack Upper Bidwell Park

Jack and Sarah are two people I absolutely love being around!  We have had two consultations and we talk business for about the first 10 minutes and end up closing the restaurant we meet at.  Time just flies by when we're chatting and I honestly can say that the connections we've created shows in this very relaxed and comfortable shoot.  I am so pleased to work with these two and gain them as friends.  Please enjoy Jack and Sarah's Engagement photos.

Chico California Engagement photography: John and Sarah

I am so excited to have met this adorable couple.  While long distance planning is new to me, I am so pleased to be trusted by them.  On our first in person meeting  a month right before their wedding we fortunately had a beautiful day up at upper Bidwell Park capturing some precious moments.  I learned that John and Sarah are kind fun loving people with a great sense of humor.  I couldn't be more excited to celebrate their wedding day with them in just one more month!  Please enjoy!

Chris and Emma

First off I would like to state how awesome Chris and Emma are!  They made this session so comfortable and easy by joking and laughter.  I absolutely love coming to a shoot where theres ice cream, hammocks and wonderful company.  I have some of the best wedding couples, these two are no exception!  

Please enjoy!

These two were referred to me from a lovely couple and I am so incredibly thankful!  They both have a great sense of humor and class.  I had a lot of fun and laughs with these two I can't wait to capture the day they say "I do!"  Cheers to the wonderful couple!

These two are so darn cute together.   Soon enough I will be at their wedding capturing and celebrating their love! I can't wait!

 

Arin & Trevor

Arin and Trevor are such a great couple and I am so excited to be their wedding photographer.  I've known both of them separately growing up and when I found out they were together it just made sense.  These two people are great individually but together they are amazing!  Cheers to the future!

Amy & Renee!

Congrats to Renee and Amy on their engagement!  These two lovely ladies are so much fun and I am happy to know them both!  Renee proposed to Amy at Disneyland with an adorable video which at the end it said "turn around".  When Amy did she found Renee on one knee with family members wearing shirts that read "Will you marry me?"  Cheers to the Future you too!

Duston & Katie's Spring Engagement!

         These two are wonderful people, and I am so excited to be a part of some of their most important moments this summer when they tie the knot!  I had so much fun with them this past Sunday, while we waited out the rain.   We were really lucky to have such lovely light!
