From The Redwoods to The Church: Liz + Kyle’s San Jose Wedding

My goodness this was a beautiful day!
Kyle and Liz took us on quite an adventure… from flying up to San Jose, staying a couple days in Santa Cruz with my husband and son, meeting the wedding party in the Redwood Forest and hiking the trails, to witnessing their ceremony at their home church in San Jose. It was an honor to photograph their day and spend time with their friends and family.

Thanks for the adventure, you sweet kids! And for helping me reach my fitbit step goal;)
I never knew how enjoyable a hike on a wedding day could be!

Fun and Happy Senior Boy Shoot at Disneyland!

Luke is one lovable guy! I had so much fun hanging out at Disneyland and watching him be silly in front of a crowd with major confidence! Not everyone can do that, you know (*clears throat* my husband who hates having his picture taken in public *clears throat*). This was seriously a great day and Luke was awesome!

Seniors are fun:)



Alex + Hannah: 3 week engagement and a new life in Seattle

A couple weeks ago my handsome husband, Steve, officiated a WEDDING for our friends Alex and Hannah! Their story is such a cool thing to be a part of!
Basically, Alex got a job working for the Starbucks Roastery in downtown Seattle and in a matter of 4 weeks they decided to accept the job, get engaged, married, and move to the city from our small Southern California desert town! Pretty exciting! Their actual engaged time was only 20 days. THESE KIDS ARE NUTS, I TELL YA;)
Steve and I were able to give them 3 premarital classes in our home in that short amount of time too. It was a crazy and busy February but we were so happy to be a part of it! Steve wrote their entire ceremony  (I added in a few jokes) and I snapped a few portraits for them!

Do you watch The Office? Well, you know how Pam went to the doctor because she hurt her ankle at the corporate volley game and while at the hospital she found out she was pregnant? Well… that kind of happened to Sabryna + Kevin! She had to get an antibiotic from a dentist visit and at the doctors office they were surprised with the best news of their life! THEY WERE PREGNANT!
How absolutely special. Enjoy their photos.. and the sweet surprise her husband did for her!

Sam Taylor: Silverado Varsity Quarterback Senior Shoot

You want to know a good way to feel old REALLY fast? Do a senior shoot at your alma mater. Wow. And do one in the morning… because as you drive on campus you’ll feel like you’re late for your French test all over again.
BUT! Besides feeling old (class of 2006 baby!) it was really really great meeting Sam and taking his senior photos! Sam Taylor is the Varsity Quarterback for Silverado High School and has broke MANY records for his team. He has a pretty impressive career behind AND ahead of him, I’m sure!

College acceptance letters…. pssshhhh

Congrats on an awesome football season, Sam! Best of luck of the rest of your senior year!
