It’s been a busy 2014 wedding season already alongside teaching photography and traveling, with little time to blog. To start off this season , I wanted to publish this glam styled downtown Sacramento wedding with one of my first couples of the year, Corey and Aimee. They held their wedding at the second oldest private club in California, The Sutter Club, a fantastic venue with all kinds of photographic candy.  And to add to their theme, they brought in a newly restored vintage car, which I gladly photographed.  I was glad to watch the day unfold and see their love showcased for each other and their families.  They were a delight to be around for sure.  Here are some of the images from their gorgeous wedding day.  Congratulations to Corey and Aimee on their marriage.

Tim and Jenna had their destination engagement session at Yosemite National Park. I never get bored in Yosemite, and actually it’s my playground both for photography and for hiking.  I’ve hiked half-dome at least forty times now and it never gets less beautiful. I had to leave around 4a.m. in order to meet them for a quick breakfast at the cafe. We hit it off quick and then left for some engagement photos. They were really cute together and it was obvious they adored each other. They just wanted me to do my thing and trusted me. Tim and Jenna will be having their wedding at the Evergreen lodge this year, which will be my pleasure.
