Meet Patrick and Amanda whom were married in October 2014 at a private residence in Arcata, California. This was a very fun wedding with this laid back couple that choose not to do traditional things like cutting the cake or a first dance and just wanted to spend time with their friends and family playing games and having fun. We were lucky that it was a heat wave for Humboldt County so everyone was enjoying the hot 85 degree weather. I had the pleasure of working with some of my most favorite local vendors; Alegria Sita with Gala Events & Weddings did a wonderful job planning this beautiful wedding. All the flowers were provided by one of my most favorite floral designers Faye with Flora Organica Designs. And last but not least Sweet Basil Catering did an incredible job with the food! It was such an honor and a pleasure working with Patrick and Amanda. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Meet Sean and Kristin! They were married on Eureka California in August of 2014.  This was a very Vintage/ Shabby chic/ Country themed wedding with stunning flowers done by Suzy Haggarty Designs. We started in two separate locations; Keri Messina at the wedding site off Old Arcata Road with the guys and one photographer with the girls at The Eagle House for getting ready photos. Then we walked around Old Town Eureka for some group photos with the ladies before heading to the ceremony site. After the beautiful ceremony we completed the family and couples portraits just before sunset which could not have been more perfect. This was one of my favorite weddings of 2014! I wish Sean, Kristin and their baby girl Everly a long happy life together. I want to take a moment to thank Keri Messina Photography for coming to help us with the guys photos before the ceremony. Keri is a wonderful friend and photographer! Check out her work! I am pretty sure I am her biggest fan!!

Meet beautiful Lacey! She is a 2015 graduate at our local Eureka High School. We had an amazing time together and we could of spent an entire day together taking photos. We planned our time really efficiently. Starting at the “Pink Lady”; a beautiful pink house across the street from the Carson Mansion. Then we moved on to Old Town, The Boardwalk, Lacey’s childhood home in Eureka  for some sentimental photos and since her brother was there we captured the moment of the two of them together. Then we went to an old covered bridge where we did the second half of the shoot. We were so sad the sun was setting we drove up to a look out for some silhouette photos to end the evening.

I really enjoy photographing seniors! Its such a special time in life and I want my clients to feel special during their shoot. I work with students from Eureka High School, Arcata High School, Hoopa High, Homeschooling and Charter School students throughout Humboldt County, California.

I had the pleasure of working with Lino & Jaquelynn for their wedding photography at the Samoa Mansion in Samoa, California. Samoa is a small, old logging town located on Humboldt Bay across from Eureka California. This was just four hours of their day and I have so many more photos I wish I could share. The dress came from Promises Bridal in Henderson Center.  And the amazing catering was by Sweet Basil Catering whom I have worked with several times now and I highly recommend them! The food, presentation, taste, creativity, staff, timing, professionalism is fabulous. Samoa Mansion has become one of my favorite venues for couples that want their family to stay together the weekend of the wedding with the wedding ceremony in the back yard and the reception in the same location or down the road at the Samoa Womens Club. I really enjoyed photographing this wedding and had such a great time with Jaquelynn and Lino and their families and guests. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Quote from the Bride: “I wanted to let you know I shared the photos with family and friends and they can’t believe how great they came out and how amazing we look. Every time  I go through them it feels like it just happened yesterday.  I am so grateful we spent the money for quality images.”
