Robin & Arun | Sacramento Wedding Photographer | Viscaya
Robin and Arun got married this past March and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect! They got ready at the beautiful Citizen Hotel located in the heart of Downtown Sacramento and got married at The Viscaya, a bed and breakfast with a beautiful courtyard and reception area.
Thank you to Shannon of www.flourishdesigns.com for the beautiful flowers!
I can’t stand how much I love this engagement session with Teji and Brad. When I saw her by the water fountain with her beautiful tutu skirt fluttering in the wind I almost pee’d myself with excitement. Seriously, how cute and stylish is her skirt?!?
Check out their engagement session we did in Downtown Sacramento and in some random field off the I-5 freeway. Random places are usually the best places for photos. =)
Jonelle & Richard’s San Francisco Engagement Session
How oh how could I have waited so long to blog my BEST friends engagement session?? GAH! I could blame it on many things like pregnancy brain or I ate too much and just woke up from a food coma or my 2 year old daughter made me do it. Or I just simply suck. That’s probably the best answer. Blah!
So my hubby and I came up to San Francisco from Sacramento early for brunch with Jonelle and Richard before we started shooting. It was so nice to be in the city! It had been waaaay too long since I got to go up there to just hang out so I made sure to come up early to do just that. We went to a bakery that served pasteries for brunch. It wasn’t just your average donuts and danish bakery. Oh no, this fancy little shop had mini quiches with a runny yolk in the center. Glazed blah blah with caramelized blah blah on top. Lots of visually beautiful cakes with a hipster vibe to them. Is it weird that food has a hispter vibe? They served a lot of things I couldn’t pronounce so I just pointed and nodded and shoved the food in my face.
After we were stuffed, we went to see the MUA who was going to do Jonelle’s wedding makeup for her trial (always get your trial done the same day as your engagement session so you can see how you photograph). I sat with her while the guys went down the street to the local bar. One and a half hours later we had a gorgeous girl (not that she even needed makeup!) and we were ready to rock and roll! Without further adieu…
And if you guys are curious about why the Golden Gate look so far in one photo and hella close in the other. I used a 35mm for one and a 70-200mm at 200 for the other. The 200mm give great compression and allows the background to come up closer. Love Love LOVE the 70-200 for that reason!
