State Capitol wedding photos – Sacramento Convention Center wedding reception – Ida & Rajiv

I looks out her hotel window as she is getting ready for her wedding ceremony on the steps of the Capitol in Sacramento.

Ida and Rajiv had their wedding ceremonies on the west steps of the California State Capitol in Sacramento. They had two ceremonies for their wedding, and American ceremony and a Persian ceremony. Very fun and very interesting to experience. I just love learning about how different cultures celebrate the joining of two lives.

Ida and Rajiv got ready for the wedding in their suites at the Sheraton Gran Hotel in Sacramento. The wedding reception was held in the ballroom of the Sacramento Convention Center. Kendra Pfeiffer-Wershing of Pfeiffer Event Planning coordinated the wedding – as always she was a joy to work with. Flowers were done by Sarah Acrich of Cuttings, catering was done by Famous Kabob and the cake was created by Blatters Fine Foods & Deserts.

A big shout out goes to Anne Williams who helped me with the photography at this wonderful wedding – thanks Anne, it’s always fun working with you!

And finally, congratulations to Ida and Rajiv – it was a really fun wedding and great to get to know the two of you!

Old Sugar Mill wedding photos – Clarksburg, CA – Jessica & Darrel

Some really fun Old Sugar Mill wedding portraits in and around the ruins in Clarksburg, CA.

Jessica and Darrel were married at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Sacramento and had their wedding reception at the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg. The Old Sugar Mill is one of the most amazing places for great wedding photos in the Sacramento Area. Marnie Stiles, who runs the events for the Carvalho Family Winery, was wonderful to work with and really made the wedding day run smoothly. A great venue, a wonderful couple and a beautiful day – what more could you ask for.

Congratulations Jessica and Darrel!

Land Park engagement photos – Ida and Rajiv – Sacramento, CA

Ida and Rajiv lie on some of the colorful fall leaves in Land Park during their engagement photography session.

We did Ida and Rajiv’s engagement photos in Land Park in Sacramento on a pretty December day. There was still a little color in some of the trees and a bunch of colorful leaves on the ground to add some pop to the engagement photos.

Land Park is a really fun place for an engagement photo shoot as there are a variety of different areas to go to within a short walk of the duck pond. Of course a fun beautiful couple makes it easy to capture some wonderful images.

Ida and Rajiv were married during a wedding ceremony on the steps of the Capitol in Sacramento and had their wedding reception at the ballroom of the Sacramento Convention Center. It was a blast – stay tuned for some wonderful photos from their amazing wedding.

Congratulations Ida and Rajiv!

Capitol Park Sacramento wedding photography and Harlow’s night club wedding reception

Angela and Chris walk down K Street in Sacramento with their wedding party before heading to their wedding reception at Harlow's Night Club on J Street.

It has been a long time since I’ve updated my blog and I apologize for that. Now that the wedding season is pretty much behind me I am going to be regularly adding posts from weddings that I have shot over the past year or so.

This first one is from Angela and Chris’s wedding in Capitol Park and a reception at Harlow’s Night Club a couple of days later. The wedding was a small intimate event with just family and a few friends at the Rose Garden in Capitol Park.

Two days later they had an eighties prom themed wedding reception at Harlow’s Night Club on J Street in Sacramento. Angela and Chris wanted to take photos with their wedding party at some fun spots in Sacramento, so we spent about two hours cruising around town taking photos… Old Town Sacramento, R Street corridor, on K Street and various other locations – what fun that was. Everyone had a blast as the limo took us around to the locations and we jumped out and shot.
