The past couple of days were beyond amazing! I had the opportunity to attend a workshop hosted by the fabulous Tori Wible… she is so very, very sweet and put together a super fun and informative workshop. I loved getting to know a whole bunch of other Northern California wedding photographers (and one from Washington!) and had a great time photographing two adorable couples. Alex & Kamden are engaged and planning a fall wedding. They ironically met at the exact venue where we photographed them for the workshop – the gorgeous Viaggio Winery in Lodi, CA. The venue was unbelievably gorgeous with so many fun spots to take pictures… I would be thrilled to get a chance to shoot there again! Here are a handful of favorites from day one…

Heather and Ben are such a sweet couple! Heather is friends with my little sister and I was thrilled when she contacted me to take their engagement pictures. I was even more excited when she told me they were happy to travel out to Monterey for the session and we decided on doing the pictures at the beatiful Carmel mission and then headed down to the beach for some sunset pictures. The weather was absolutely beautiful, with plenty of sun shining, and I had a great time getting to know Heather and Ben a little better!

I’ve had so much fun doing themed shoots lately and this princess and the pea photo shoot I did here in Monterey for my girls was especially fun! The girls loved dressing up as princesses and I was absolutely thrilled to find this beautiful lace crown, purchased from Love Crush Boutique on etsy. My three year old didn’t want to give the crown back to me after we were done taking pictures! If there are any past (or future!) clients out there that would like to dream up a themed shoot with me, I’d be happy to help you style it and carry it out! I’ve got a couple more ideas in the works, as part of my 12 shoots in 2012 series and I can’t wait to take my kids out for some more sessions! And now on to my favorite images of my three year old and eight year old princesses…

I arrived at the temple a bit early and was able to capture some images of the gorgeous temple grounds. I know that most people wouldn’t think overcast weather is ideal, but for a photographer, I was thrilled that the harsh sun wasn’t out just yet!
