Brett and I have known Shelby for a long time. She is always a beautiful soft voice full of joy taking life as it comes. Jason comes into her life and within a couple of months sweeps her off her feet – a match made in Heaven. The cool thing is that they were both going to the same church (www.thestirring.org) but didn’t meet until family friends brought them together. I love stories like that where they are so clearly orchestrated by God and meant to be.
So, here we are in 103 degree weather (gotta love Redding) capturing this couple’s excitement for their wedding in September. It was a blast. Jason and Shelby are awesome and were willing to do anything. I loved their excitement over all of the ideas as we went through the shoot and they loved all of the same buildings, structures and fields that we did. They hardly needed any direction and just knew what look we wanted before even saying it. They have impeccable taste and their wedding is going to be a dream. Shelby was telling me some of the details and I got goosebumps just listening and envisioning it. Can’t wait!
Jason and Shelby, thank you for hanging out in the hot weather and for being such great models. Thank you for allowing us this opportunity!
Once again, the Redding train station has been very good to us.
I kept this one really clean because it is such a simple yet beautiful moment that is not planned. It is just between them.
I love the intimacy and beauty of this moment.
One of my favs, I love me some good ol’ black and white. Aren’t they such a great looking couple???
Oh how I love natural light!
This is my husbands’ creativity. I love how they turned out!
Give me some tall grass and some beautiful sun and I am a happy woman. (even in the heat)

A family VERY dear to my heart. They are dear friends of ours that have supported us in our ups and downs, cheering us up with “Settlers” and encouraging us with prayer when needed. They are a walking testimony of God’s love and faithfulness. They are a beautiful couple which of course results in a beautiful child. Ruby is one of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen with her stunning blue eyes and huge smile, but she also has a very contemplative way about her that always makes you wonder what she is thinking. We love this family and of course it was a JOY to photograph them. It was a very hot day in Redding, but we braved the heat and came out with some great images.
Nathan, Juliette and Ruby – we love you so much and miss you when we are apart. We are always blessed by you when we are together. Thank you for your friendship, always.
Isn’t Juliette so beautiful???
One of my favs from the shoot.
Nathan adores his girls and that is always evident. He is a loving husband and a great dad.
Look at those eyes – totally after her mama.
Aren’t they so cute?
