Dawn + Adam: Oakland Wedding

I had been looking forward to photographing Dawn and Adam's wedding for many months, for many reasons.  Dawn has been a dear friend since the 6th grade, and it's wonderful to see the people you care about find their perfect counterpart and head off into the sunset!  Every last detail of their day was touched by them personally and reflected their unique style.  They, with help from family and friends, crafted everything from the ceremony backdrop to the hand-etched monogrammed favors.  Dawn looked breathtaking in her lady-like lace sheath and stunning red shoes, and Adam was dashing in his three-piece suit and jaunty bow tie!   It was an honor to witness their vows to love forever and to capture the adorable smile on Dawn's face when their eyes met at the altar.  They celebrated with their closest family and friends, and it was an amazing party ... complete with a Footloose dance-off!  At the end of the evening, I went to thank Adam and say goodbye, and told him Dawn was a lucky girl, and he said, no, he's the lucky one.  Aaaw... I think they're both pretty lucky!


Bride's Dress:  Nannette Lepore // Groom's Suit:  Indochino // Bouquets & Boutonnieres:  Oh My Clementine // Bridal Prep Location:  Claremont Resort // Ceremony Venue:  Morcom Rose Garden // Reception Venue:  Starline Social Club

Dawn and Adam, many congratulations!!!   I couldn't be happier for the two of you!

Summer 2012 What To Wear - Sacramento Senior Portrait Photographer

Summer is here... Break out the Otter Pops!!!  I'm totally excited for my upcoming Class of 2013 senior portrait sessions, and having a great time gearing up for my Girls Day Out parties this season.  One of the most common questions I get from clients is, "What should I wear?"... My stock answer is always to wear what makes you feel fabulous!  But it's also helpful to actually get some visual inspiration, and I came across this bright and cheery collection on Pinterest (um... I HEART Pinterest!).  It's all about punchy pops of color and does a great job of showing how you can incorporate bright hues and fun accessories into your look!  I especially dig the embroidered sundress :)

Summer sessions are filling up fast!  Find out more about my senior sessions here, and if you're interested in a Girls Day Out senior portrait party, my next available date will be in August, so contact me ASAP to get on the calendar!
