I just picked up the recent issue of Bridal Couture Magazine, and I’m excited to share with you they featured a wedding we photographed (Randy and Lisa’s rustic wedding), which is also viewable on the magazine’s website wedding blog.  Not only did they showcase some of Randy and Lisa’s special day in six full pages, but they placed my creative image on a full spread.  They also featured Blake and Melissa’s engagement session I captured at Folsom Lake! The images look great in print, so go and pick up an issue.

Seth and Michelle’s wedding at the Heirloom Inn was more beautiful than I imagined with flowers, plants, vines, dirt, fall colors, and an old Victorian home to top it off. The property is hidden away in Ione, California, but is a beautiful organic place for a charming couple. We started out in Sutter creek with the men, and then spent the rest of the time at our unique rustic location. I was able to spend more time with them when I photographed their engagement session downtown San Diego last year. Both Seth and Michelle are a wonderful couple whom compliment each other, both hard workers, and put each other before themselves. I was impressed by Seth’s classy respect for people and the way he treated his wife and the whole family. The toasts were enchanting, hilarious, and fun. Seth’s father has quite the knack for speaking, very eloquent and mesmerizing. I loved his sharing from the Word of God. The whole evening was special and it was great to have been part of a special gathering!
