.aaron + casey | creek haven vineyard wedding. {chico, ca photographer}

C A S E Y + A A R O N

These two are some of my favorites! I just loved getting to capture their wedding on one of the hottest days of the summer! I think it reached a high of 109. Yes, it was HOT! Praise the Lord that nobody fainted & everyone enjoyed the beautiful celebration of casey & aaron!

They were married at Chico’s Creek Haven Vineyard! Such an incredible venue! They saw each other before, which was so sweet! Shelly Gibbs & her team did an incredible job pulling everything off! It ran so smooth!! Thank you Shelly!

Congratulations Casey & Aaron! I am so thrilled for you two & know that your life together is gong to be absolutely amazing!!

.josh + erica. {northern california photographer}

This photo shoot was quite adventurous!

As I was confirming the downtown post office location, Erica texted back asking which downtown post office address. My heart beat a little faster, because I knew instantly that she wasn’t in Redding. Luckily, she wasn’t too far away, Sacramento, so we decided to just meet a little half wayish… Corning just happened to be where we decided to meet. As I drove through Corning I discovered that the main “downtown” area was closed off due to a city parade/event! LOL! I just went with it & we had a blast shooting in & out of different spots !

Thank you both for being such troopers! It was such a fun shoot!!!!!!

shane + angie

Three years ago I had the incredible honor of shooting Jake & Starr’s wedding.

That day, Starr’s brother Stetson asked  Jenny to marry him!  A year later I had the thrill of capturing their wedding

& two weeks ago, I captured Starr & Stetson’s brother, Shane’s wedding!  I don’t know a greater honor than capturing all three weddings!

It just makes me cry! Thank you all for your friendship & for the honor of capturing moments in your lives that will last forever! It means the world!

IMG_0197

Shane & Angie were married at the beautiful White House Wedding Venue in Redding, CA! Gorgeous day. Not super hot, Praise the Lord, especially for an August wedding!

Everything was so beyond smooth. We were actually ahead of schedule, which is super rare at weddings!

Thank you, Angie & Shane for having me! I enjoyed every second of your wedding! It was so beautiful!

Happily Ever After! Cheers!

.the big reveal. {redding, ca photographer}

The Big Reveal!

I have had the beautiful honor of capturing incredible moments in this family’s life.

I absolutely fell in love with Starr when we met at Starbucks for a bridal meeting!

Everything in me hoped she would hire me! So thrilled to have captured their wedding!

I still pinch myself when I show off their album, or look back through their day!

Getting the news that Starr was expecting brought tears to my eyes! So excited to see their family grow!

Jake & Starr! Congratulations! Oh my goodness! So excited for you!
