Melissa + Kyle

melissa + kyle: shingle springs, CA 

Maternity sessions are some of the sweetest sessions to capture. Especially when you're capturing the joy of two people becoming first time parents. Melissa and Kyle decided to invite us up to their Shingle Springs home to make their photos a little more personal and intimate. I thought this was a brilliant idea. Their wooded property in the hills made for an awesome location for a shoot. These two are so excited to be parents and can’t wait to show their kiddo the laid back lifestyle of county living. We had a great time creating memories with these soon to be parents. Check out some shots from their baby bump session below.

Claudia + Adegoke

Claudia + Adegoke: Stockton, CA French 25

With all that goes on leading up to a wedding day, everyone knows things are bound to get a tad bit stressful. Being wedding photographers we know this all too well. However, Claudia was by far the most easy going and calm bride we've ever worked with. It was like a walk in the park. She was so calm we both found ourselves asking her if everything was okay just to be sure. I mean everything from getting ready, to dinner, to photography time was all stress free and relaxed. It was such a breath of fresh air. We should have known to expect it. This lovely couple spends a good amount of their time in and will be soon moving to our favorite R&R city Monterey. Of course they're laid back people. To top it off they were wed at one of Stockton's finest restaurants French 25.  The decor was amazing and the food was (as they say down south) "so good it makes you wanna slap yo mama." Check out some of their gorgeous rooftop wedding photos below.
