In Love--Matt & Chelsea

I love getting to know new people. It is especially fun when these people are in love and getting married! There are lots of giggles, smiles, and stories. 

Hearing the story of how the future bride and groom met is often a highlight of our time together. Matt and Chelsea met while in Chico--but things didn't really begin until they were reconnected down the road. That is always fun to hear--How their paths crossed once again.

Enjoy these photos of our time together. I wish I could share them all--we went all around Chico. Matt and Chelsea have plenty of places in this town that are near and dear to them. Fun!
 Both Chelsea and Matt graduated from Chico State and now live in the Bay Area.
We had to take a photo in front the place where their paths crossed for the second time. They rocked some awesome wigs for this location!
 This next shot is one of many jumping photos. Can you tell they are a fun couple??
 Matt is a runner and this location in Bidwell Park is sentimental to him.
 Chelsea and Matt also golf together. Yeah, I know what you are thinking--what fun thing don't they do?!
 Matt designed Chelsea's Engagement ring. It is just beautiful.
 Thank you to this sweet couple for letting us be a part of this fun time in your lives! You are beautiful people and truly work great together.

Thanks for following!

Little Ones--The Sathrum Family

Baby Sathrum, you are just such a cute little man! We are saving most of his photos for his parents to share but I thought I'd show you all a few. Enjoy!
It sure looks tiring being a baby. I'm sure mom and dad would argue that they are the ones who are tired:)
I am loving all of these sweet babies around us! 

On Wednesday Travis and I were able to go to a friend's house and watch her three week old little girl so the mom could sleep for a few solid hours. At one point we said "We could totally do this!" and then a few minutes later said "How do people do this?!" :)

So, cheers to Luke and Megan for being new parents! You two make a great team and your son is perfect.

Matt and Chelsea's Engagement Session will be up by Monday!

Our little owl

Man, these last few weeks have been crazy. I'm sure your past few weeks have been crazy as well--aren't they always?

This blog has been quite lonely and will start to pick up these next few weeks with more fun photo sessions! I thought I would share a little about why this blog has been without posts for a little bit.

We are buying a house! It has been such a quick process and is going to require lost more patience in the weeks to come. We have already made a few trips to TJMaxx, Ross, etc. to look at home decor--that is the whole reason to buy a house, right?! No, but really...it has been so much fun to think about how our first home will look.

Today, we went to TJMaxx and purchased our first piece of home decor(that wasn't from a garage sale). It is a cute little ceramic owl that will probably sit on a night stand in a guest room. It has been the first thing that Travis and I both liked and it matches the to-be colors of the room just perfectly!
We scored an awesome leather bed at a yard sale this past weekend and are planning on painting the room the light blue(at the base of the owl w/ the white dots). It will have brown and light yellow accents. Can you tell I am excited about decorating?
 So, I am off to bed  and tomorrow brings a lot of work--blessed work. I am also hoping tomorrow brings another beautiful day like today. It felt like the first day of Fall--cool temperatures, clear skies,...oh, and boots:)

Stay tuned for lots of photo sessions in the weeks to come!

San Diego Wedding--Bryce & Raechel

The day before this beautiful wedding, the weather was acting up--random rain and hail. But, on the day of Raechel and Bryce becoming husband and wife, it was a perfect, sunny, San Diego, day. They were married at a private residence--the bride's grandparents beautiful home.  

Every wedding has it's similarities and differences--the emotions are often similar, the details are oh so different. There has not been a wedding where I haven't had tears rolling down my cheeks, while I hide behind my lens. This wedding in particular was an emotional day between the bride and her father. Raechel was such a stunning bride--I can see why her father had to wear his sunglasses most of the afternoon to hide his tears:)

Once again, I hope these photos portray how this day was--just perfect.
I just loved the details of this wedding--old books, vintage keys, & burlap.
Get low, get low.
 You know the phrase "They danced the night away"? Well, they did. We have never seen so many people stay so late at a wedding. Everyone had a blast and danced the night away.
 This little man was awesome--the robot, break dancing...possibly the worm.
This wedding has a special place in my heart--the first wedding we booked last Winter. Thank you Cherkin and Stroupe families for allowing us to capture this special day! 

Congratulations Raechel and Bryce! You are one hot married couple.
