Just over a week ago we had the great privilege of photographing Kaitlyn & Ian’s wedding at the Firehouse in Old Sacramento. Every wedding we photograph is so special, for so many reasons, and this was no different. The first time we photographed Kaitlyn she was not quite 14; we met her family and did their first session with us when their twins (now 8) were 8 weeks old. Over the past 8 years we have photographed the Gilliland’s countless times (there are 5 kiddos, Kaitlyn the oldest), including Kaitlyn’s senior portraits we did at a destination session in San Diego a few years ago. Not only has the Gilliland family been a long-time client, they have also become dear friends over these past 8 years. So, you can imagine the myriad of emotions we felt when photographing this wedding! James and I both have quite a difficult time holding ourselves together at any wedding, but during this one, we shed tears more than once. It’s hard to describe the emotions when as photographers, we’re not only entrusted to document this momentous day, but the family also includes us in the festivities as we are guests (sorry Steph–Kaitlyn’s mom–for not putting down our cameras and dancing, but I’m sure you’ll forgive us! :-).
Kaitlyn & Ian–thank you both for putting your trust in us and giving us so much time with you both on your wedding day, even when I’m sure you would have rather been enjoying your party. The images with the bridge in the background were toward the end of their reception, when most people would have said “the heck with photos, let’s just enjoy this party!” Totally worth the time (and the walk through Old Sac!). I could write all day about how special this young couple and their family are to us, but I’m sure everyone would rather just get on to looking at this sneak peek from their wedding day. Enjoy!
You may remember these lovely folks from their wedding sneak peek a while back. There were just too many great images not to share more, so enjoy this, the story of two wonderful people committing their lives to each other and allowing us the privilege of capturing it, beginning with the wedding rehearsal!
Romantic. Elegant. Emotional. I could go on an on with words to describe Roxie and Brett’s wedding last weekend, but these three epitomize for us the entire event. We were honored and thrilled when Roxana asked us to photograph their wedding, as we know her sister quite well and photographed their entire extended family several years ago. When tears came to her eyes as she first described to us how she wanted her wedding to feel and what was most important to her, we knew this was going to be special. The event took place over several days at the Forest House Lodge in Foresthill, CA–an incredible venue that fit Roxie and Brett perfectly! Their wedding was marked with not just one ceremony but two; first a traditional American ceremony set in the trees overlooking a beautiful view of the foothills, followed by a Persian ceremony at the Lodge. What a treat! We had never witnessed a Persian ceremony before, and it was simply wonderful. We want to thank you, Roxie and Brett for inviting us to be a part of your day and your lives; words cannot describe how honored we are that you entrusted us with such an important time in your lives.
If you visit our blog regularly, you’ll recall a sneak peek of Thomas & Kasie’s gorgeous wedding a while back. There were just too many fantastic images from the day not to share more. They were married at Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, and it was certainly a day to remember! Everything about this day was perfect–even the clouds! A few more images to celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs. Eaton:
