tiphanie & jimmy. sonoma engagement photographer

david took this one – i’m so lucky to have him!

oh my goodness, these guard-dogs were so huge that i just had to include one with them!

another amazing shot from david!

jimmy found where he’d signed the cellar door back in ’09! we couldn’t find a pen for david and i to leave our mark, so we’ll have to make another trip back!

they love each other, despite being rivals…

tiphanie’s sister, kayla, was visiting from colorado after graduating high school. such beautiful sisters!

tiphanie and jimmy are from colorado and living in the san francisco bay area. i was already planning a trip to california to visit a good friend {hi, michelle!} from college, so an engagement session in wine country worked out perfectly! we met tiphanie and jimmy at their favorite spot in sonoma, forth vineyards…what an amazing location! we had so much fun just walking around and exploring the vineyards with you during the session, and we can’t wait to be a part of your wedding at della terra this december!

Bonsai and Cici

the past few weeks we’ve had new visitors to the luxury suite, and frankly, they scare me. bonsai and cici {lovingly named by emily} have made our stairwell their home, and they don’t take kindly to people passing by. really, i think kamikaze might be a better name for bonsai – don’t let his beady eye and sweet little beak fool you…

but every once in a while, one of the birds {barn swallows} gets really brave and won’t move from their perch. i took the one below as i was walking back to the luxury suite and just happened to have my camera. i can’t believe how close he let me get to him. this was taken with my 24-70, at 70, and i couldn’t have been more than 3 feet away. thankfully, i still have both of my eyes!

just because, our 1st year in denver | 2 comments.
carolyn & pete. colorado springs engagement photographer

pete couldn’t get enough of carolyn’s kisses. too cute!

i was introduced to carolyn through her friend and business partner, colleen. {they’re both wedding planners in colorado springs}. carolyn and pete were so comfortable with each other, i’m excited that they chose me to photograph their wedding day next month!
