Jessica & Spice {Winters photoshoot}

The title of this post makes it sound like Jessica and Spice are a couple, but that is not quite the case (although Jessica does love Spice and Spice adores Jessica)...

Jessica is my wonderful sis and Spice is her Chihuahua. (Jessica may look familiar because she is identical twins with my other sister, Katie who I mentioned in my last post!) For fun we went to a nearby town, Winters,CA, for a photoshoot.

Right next to downtown Winters there was the coolest car parked in the drive way of a house. We snapped a few pictures...

And then, to our embarrassment, the owner drove up in his truck and saw us...

But luckily he was the nicest guy! And I think was quite flattered that we were taking pictures with his favorite little car :) So we kept shooting away!

And some field shots to wrap up the day!

I heart fields...

Congrats Katie & Josh!

My sister, Katie, had quite the eventful Friday. She graduated from college and is now an official Veterinary Technician! She barely had the chance to take off her graduation gown when her boyfriend, Josh, surprised her with a limo to whisk her off to dinner. At first the limo appeared to just be a graduation present... but during the ride he popped the "big question"! And she, of course, said Yes! :)

We all knew they were bound to get engaged soon but I think Katie was quite surprised that he asked her on Friday. Before they rode off in the limo and got themselves all engaged ;) I snapped this picture of the cute couple!

Stay tuned for an engagement session for these two! Josh's dad, Jim Rector, is a photographer and he is flying out from Texas for a visit next weekend. The two of us will be doing a tag-team engagement session for Katie & Josh, it will be fun! :) Pin It

Samantha & Jay {Brix Napa wedding}

I am so excited to post these pictures of Samantha and Jay's wedding in Napa,CA. First of all, it was the PERFECT wedding. The weather was perfect, the venue, Brix restaurant in Yountville, was perfect, the couple was perfect, my second shooter wasn't half bad... ;) Kristen Booth flew up from Southern California to assist me and I could not have asked for a better second shooter! (Make sure you check out her blog to see her shots!) And second, this was my first wedding as the main photographer. I was excited and nervous all at once, but with this wedding, how could you go wrong? It was so difficult to narrow down the pictures, so please bare with my long post...

How beautiful are these ladies?!

Look out ANTM!!(America's Next Top Model) :)

Stunning ceremony site!

Seriously, these two are like something straight out of a magazine!

It's official, my favorite picture of the day...

Samantha is such a beautiful bride! She was so fun to take pictures of!

Jay is a Sous Chef at the venue, the fabulous restaurant Brix in Napa, CA. As you can imagine, the food did not disappoint... yum!

Having two sisters myself, the sister toasts are special to me!

Congrats Jay & Sam! I am so thankful for your trust & for booking me! Hope Maui is amazing!
