I’m honored to share the cover of the recent issue of the Real Weddings magazine Summer/Fall 2013.  A big thanks to all those involved to help make this shoot successful, as it was a team effort.  I had been asked to shoot the cover last year and was excited to scope out the venue, The Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, Harris Center for the Arts, with the lovely Wendy Sipple, the editor of the magazine prior to committing.  What’s encouraging is that we photographed three real brides (not models) who had been selected during the bridal magazine cover contest.  One of three brides who had been selected for the three girl cover is actually one of my 2013 wedding brides, Angel Kang.  All three girls were pleasant, even since much was expected of them in such little time.  If you look inside the magazine, there are many other photographs from that bridal shoot, which I can’t wait to share as well!

A big thanks to the whole team of people who were involved in the shoot, which are listed below, and of course, Wendy Sipple and her hard working team!

I met with Brett and Julie downtown Sacramento at a local Starbucks, and instantly knew I would like this couple.  They were so kind and enthusiastic about my photography work and style (which is a plus for a photographer).   I remember Brett and Julie asked quite a few questions, and were both concerned how I would get them to look like the photographs on my website.  They expressed they were not good in front of the camera, didn’t know what to do, and said they would probably need assistance (which is actually something I hear often from couples).  I told them what I tell others with the same concerns: Don’t worry about that part, just be yourself, leave that to me.  (They did an amazing job).

I remember after our engagement session, they received their images.  I remember getting a warm text from Julie before Christmas that read, “WOW!!! That’s all I can say about the pictures ;~)))”

And then later, another text, “I cannot wait to show those pictures to everyone at Christmas, I am so excited!!! Merry Christmas!!!”

And another text, “I’m glad I went with my gut ;~)”

It makes a photographer’s day when a couple expresses palpable happiness over their photographs!

When we arrived to photograph Brett and Julie’s wedding last month, I was thrilled to be working with top of the line vendors, some I have worked with before, and others the first time, AND at the elegant Berghold Estate Vineyard.  Both Brett and Julie exchanged gifts before the wedding, showing no resistance to emotion, love, or kind words for each other.  We stayed until everyone waved their magic wands (sparklers) as Brett and Julie walked through the tunnel of light holding hands and smiles!

 

(By the way, I’m excited to share with you all, the first image you see here won the “Best of Show” award at the Amador County Fairground Professional Print Competition this week.  I was happy with a good first place, but then to see it move to best of division and then Best of show, I have to say I was beside myself. You can see it this weekend on display when the fair opens to the public.)
