The past couple of months have been a whirlwind around here!  We are finally starting to feel settled in our new house and really love being in the Sacramento area, once again!  Here’s a little glimpse into our last couple of months!

Impressions‘ is a creative project by an eclectic group of female photographers from around the globe. We aim to share the inspiration behind what we do through our bi-monthly posts.

Every other month, we will be sharing 8 images that tell the story of what inspired us in the previous weeks: our families, nature, weather, or maybe even work itself! We are free to explore the meaning of ‘impressions’, and it is likely to change month to month.

I adore this couple!  I met them a couple of years ago when they applied to model for me when I was doing some fun snow engagement sessions in Tahoe.  They weren’t engaged at the time (we just pretended for the shoot!  Haha!), so I was super excited when Cortlen recently proposed and Allyson said YES!  They contacted me to do their wedding and I could not be more thrilled to work with them!  We did their engagement session at the beautiful Monterey Harbor and then ended the shoot at my favorite beach in Carmel.  These two are just so sweet together… it was a dream shoot!Carmel wedding photographerSacramento wedding photographerMonterey harbor nautical sailboat engagement sessionnautical engagement monterey harborMonterey wedding engagement sessionNautical inspired engagement session Montereybeach themed wedding engagement session photographyBeach engagement Carmel Monterey

The past couple of months have been quite busy around here!  We moved from Monterey to the Sacramento area the Saturday after Christmas, so we’ve had a lot of change recently!  We adopted two cute kittens, and are quite obsessed with how adorable they are!  Here’s Charlie…

Terri & Glenn are such a sweet couple!  They traveled out to my area from Sacramento, for their engagement session.  I was so thrilled that they chose the Carmel Mission and my favorite beach in Carmel for their pictures… two of my favorite spots!  They brought their adorable dogs with them for a few pictures, which was just perfect.  I can hardly wait for their Fall wedding next October at Taber Ranch!!Carmel Beach engagement shootMonterey Carmel mission engagement session wedding photographyMonterey Carmel mission engagement session wedding photographersMonterey Carmel mission engagement session wedding photographerMonterey Carmel mission engagement session photographersMonterey Carmel mission engagement session Monterey Carmel engagement sessionMonterey Carmel engagement sessionCarmel Beach engagement session picsCarmel Beach engagement session photosCarmel Beach engagement session photographersCarmel Beach engagement session imagesCarmel Beach engagement session photographyCarmel Beach engagement session romanticCarmel Beach engagement session photosCarmel Beach engagement session photographersCarmel Beach engagement session
