This post is long overdue, but worth the wait... promise! Brittany and Brandon's Yosemite Wedding was nothing short of amazing. It was gorgeous, sweet, and full of amazing decor and delicious food.
Brittany's Vera Wang gown and Kate Spade jewelry made for a perfect way to start the day:
Brittany makes a stunning bride... all glamour, grace, and sweetness rolled into one.
My assistant of the day, Candice Benjamin, did a great job catching these photos Brandon getting ready:
First look time!
The day started out cloudy, but when the sun decided to peak out from around the clouds it was amazing:
Brandon and Brittany kept the wedding party small and simple... just one on each side :)
Their little flower girl was beyond adorable!
Most gorgeous ceremony setting ever! They couldn't have asked for a better backdrop :)
Little Harlow was so well behaved at the alter... I was impressed!
I was a pretty happy girl shooting these beautiful people in this amazing setting :)
The details at this wedding were so well thought out and stunning. I couldn't take enough photos of everything!
Big thanks to Candice for capturing lots of these detail photos:
First dance :)
The desert table was pretty AND delicious! How amazing is this cake? The frosting was served on the side :)

Dear Baby Noah,
You are so so so ridiculously cute.
Love, Amanda :)
Mom and Dad just happen to be comic nerds... so we had to incorporate their Superman and Supergirl comics somehow :)
Super Baby!!!! (PS, omigosh that dimple is so awesome)
Big sister Chloe needed a photo too:
Eeeep, baby toes are so irresistible!
My favorite of the day :)
Noah decided to wake up and check mom out for a while. Doesn't he look so old with his eyes open?!
Rob and Ashley, thanks so much for having me over for Noah's photos... I'm excited to see your little family grow and for our kids to play together... someday :)
Two blog posts in one day?! I'm on a roll!
You might just recognize these awesome faces. They're some of my most loyal (and awesome) clients and they're expecting a new little man in their life any day now. To say I'm excited to meet him is a serious understatement :) I am so so so so lucky to have people like this in my life and love that I get to take their photos so often. Kirstie, keep those babies coming!
We'll start things out with my favorite photo of the day. Roman is so stinking cute. I love how he kept his eye on me while giving mom some love :)
He looks way older than he is here!
Dahahahaaha... giving shoulder rides is dangerous with 2 year olds :)
Uh, hello cuteness:
Roman is very excited about his baby brother... sometimes.
"Look! A cave!"
I don't know what this expression is for, but I love it!
Kirstie makes 8 months pregnant look goooooood!
And we'll end with a photo of Roman making a hot mess of himself with an overzealous water fountain :) Thanks for looking!
Yay, it's Friday! That usually means it's weekend work time, but tomorrow I actually have the day off for my and Josh's 12 year 'together' anniversary! Jeez that makes me feel kinda old :)
Anyway, I thought I'd share one of my recent engagement sessions today. Bret and Meg wanted their engagement session to be casual and fun... just like them. Shooting at the circle was a no brainer since they spend a lot of time together there. Then we headed out to a nearby park so their super cute dog could get in on the action : )
Bret always has a laugh ready...
How beautiful is Meg's hair and makeup? I love it!
We found some random chalk hearts in an alley :)
My favorite of the day! Tree shadows are sooooo pretty!
Over by their favorite bar, Paul's :)
Quick outfit and location change!
Here's Darcy... she is such a sweet and well behaved dog. She makes it seem worth it to get one even though I have terrible allergies.
I love Meg's dress! She said she got it at JCPenny.... who knew?!
Looks like a Christmas card!
Darcy needed a close up too :)
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!!!
I just love this family! It has been nothing short of amazing to see them go from expecting their first daughter to being a family of four. Time goes by so fast and I love that Rachelle and Karl put so much value on their memories by having photos done so consistently :)
Here is Livienne's 6 month photo shoot... isn't she a cutie?
She's already into vintage cars just like Daddy
Look at those teeth!
Big sister, Jazelle woke up from her nap on the wrong side of the bed, but we managed to get a few photos of her anyway :)
Sometimes when I look at my photos after a photo shoot I'm amazed that I managed to catch a certain shot. In this next photo I still can't believe I was able to get both girls to look at me, haha.
Those chunky legs are the best!
And that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
