Looking back with good memories to the day that Warren and Sweet Caroline became Man & Wife. Surrounded by family and friends at the Gorgeous Willow Heights Mansion, the sun was shining down on their smiling faces as they said "I DO!" It was our pleasure to get to know these two lovebirds...and share in their love story.

We had the pleasure of spending the evening with the gorgeous couple, Ali and Sahar. Leal Vineyards served as the perfect backdrop for their engagement session. Love was in the air...a romantic vibe and a real friendship. We feel so honored to work with such amazing people. Sweet, kind and just so lovely. Sahar is a STUNNING woman...and the camera loved her as well as her handsome man! Thank you both for the love, the laughter, the wine and being so fabulous for us!

Warren proposed to Caroline at sunset, on the beautiful Stanford University campus on August 31, 2013. It was here, at a wooden bench, near the Oval, that Warren had 2 violinists play Pachebel Canon, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, and of course...Sweet Caroline, as he on one knee asked her to be his wife. We had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session, here, where it all happened! They were absolutely so into their session, as well as into each other. It was amazing! Thank you two...capturing this part of your love story...it was precious.
Here's a little peek!
Hands, touchin' hands, reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you...Sweet Caroline...xoxo

I had the privilege of photographing my very DEAR friend Renee and her family. Sam and Renee and their two adorable, mannerly, sweet, happy sons are absolutely in LOVE with their new addition...Ryland. The setting was just right... in their own home...why? It was relaxing, cozy, full of love and laughter. As the GFP photographers...Heidi and I have 6 of our own children...Heidi's are all teenagers, and one preteen...getting so grown up, driving, graduating and working a job. My children? I cant believe it bit they are marrying, moving across the world, and my youngest graduating...it all hit me during this shoot. There was a moment when this mama was holding her little man in her arms, tears rolling down her cheeks from pure and consuming love. It made me remember that exact feeling and moment with my own and how fleeting these moments are. To freeze time, even if it's just a little...what a profession...Yet, looking at Sam and Renee's older sons, Jayden and Keaton...I was reminded that each stage is precious and wonderful all along the way. Thank you Osier family...it was a beautiful experience photographing your family...one that brought me to tears...happy happy tears.
Thank you for sharing these candy sprinkle moments with us...love you and so look forward to watching your three sweet little guys grow into adult sweet MEN. Enjoy every moment!

We recently were commissioned to take portraits of Meghann and Jordan for their wedding anniversary...are they adorable or what???? It was difficult to stop clicking away... the camera loved them and so do we!!!

This photo shoot was so much fun and thanks to this beautiful couple...we all had an amazing time...thanks you two!!! Love you to pieces!

We took a late afternoon drive to the coast with a little detour at a local winery...to take family portraits with Sam, his incredibly gorgeous wife Teniya and their two sweetie pies...Sammy and Sawyer. Despite the freezing cold wind coming off the water (making everyone's noses run), the playful style and personality of this family came through the lens. They were all such troopers, braving the elements so that we might capture some fabulous candy sprinkle moments....mission accomplished. Here are a few!
Thank you Schipper Family for a wild and crazy ride...it was our pleasure to capture this most fleeting time in your lives.
