Rachel & Blake Oakland Temple Wedding

Rachel & Blake had a sweet, romantic wedding at the Oakland Temple last fall. They were the most laid back couple and I absolutely love that in my couples. Rachel’s veil flew off in the wind as the exited the temple doors and Rachel was just so darn happy to be married that it didn’t phase her one bit! They spent the day having a blast with their family and friends.

I loved their clean, soft color palate, and the San Ramon Wedgewood was a great place for their wedding reception and ring ceremony. Rachel & Blake made my job so easy because they are just so in love with each other and so darn photogenic! Congratulations to Rachel & Blake! Here are a handful of my favorites from their special day.

Are YOU getting married in the Oakland Temple this year? I’ve shot over 100 weddings there (!!!!) and I’d love to shoot yours if that’s where you are saying “I DO!” this year.

Alexis & Leland’s Mt Palomar Winery Wedding

Alexis & Leland had an absolutely LOVELY wedding at Mt. Palomar in Temecula last fall. Their wedding was so sweet, so thoughtful and honestly I’ve never been to a wedding with a better dance party! Alexis & Leland are kind, loving and genuine people and their wedding was filled with family and friends who love those two so deeply. One of the best parts of my job is to see people in love AND to witness how much their families and friends adore them. Here are some of my favorites from their incredible day!

Joz & Austen’s wedding was held at Wente Vineyards in Livermore this summer. Their day was so much fun, so beautiful and an absolute blast to photograph. Joz & Austen are just the happiest, most wonderful couple you’ve ever met & I was thrilled to document their day. The team at Wente Vineyards was so professional and so lovely to work with. They made Joz & Austen’s wedding there so gorgeous!
From start to end, this wedding was an absolute dream. Here are my favorites from their classy, fun and fabulous summer wedding…

2016 Mini Sessions! Reno and Oakland

Okay, my friends! It’s that time of year again where the leaves are about to start changing color, the air has that crispy feeling AND it’s the only time of the year I offer mini sessions!  I love the families I have been able to photograph during these mini sessions in the past & I can’t wait to meet new families, as well!

For those of you who don’t know, I ONLY shoot family sessions once or twice a year so the slots are extremely limited. Mini sessions are a great way to have a quick, FUN photo shoot at a fraction of the regular price. You will be getting priceless, beautiful images of your darling family that you will LOVE. I promise. You might even shed tears of joy when you see how stinking cute your family is in the photographs. I truly believe that having your photos taken with your family as they are right now is so important. Time goes by so quickly and you will treasure looking at these photos for years to come.

Each mini session is $274, includes a 30 minute time slot & a digital download of the high resolution images.  You will receive a print release so you can print the images at your leisure, wherever you’d like. You can take the images & make your own photo albums, Christmas cards, birthday gifts, magnets, canvases, wallpaper, billboards….you get the point. You will receive your digital download in time to print up any of the photographs as holiday gifts and cards.

Please scroll to the bottom of this post to select the time slot of your choice & pay through PayPayl directly from there. Make sure to note the location as I am doing mini sessions both in Reno AND in Oakland. The location of the mini sessions will be emailed to you two weeks before the photo shoot with directions, parking information and where to meet up with yours truly.

I can’t wait to take more darling photos this year of your families! Hope to see you there! XOXO, marielle

Greg & Erica. Elk Grove Wedding.

Ohhhhhhh this wedding. A wedding where the late summer sun still illuminated everything with golden light. A wedding where the bride & groom cried together with their families, cried together with each other, laughed with their guests and sincerely loved every single person there. A wedding where the couple was simply just so in love. Basically, a perfect wedding. Erica & Greg held a late summer wedding in Elk Grove at a family member’s incredible home. Under a giant tree, they gathered with their families and exchanged vows in the most picturesque setting. They spent the evening dancing, chatting, laughing…and in between it all, you could see Erica put her arm around family members to sincerely thank them…you could see Greg holding Erica’s fathers hand…you could hear Greg & Erica making sure all their guests were comfortable and happy. Greg & Erica are a couple who put others before themselves and it was such a sweet thing to witness that during the wedding day. Their wedding day was absolutely lovely but I am completely being honest when I say that their attitudes of love and appreciation for those around them was my favorite memory from their day.

Every detail was pure perfection because of Ramona from Simple Country Weddings. I’ve done a few weddings where Ramona was the coordinator and she is fantastic! The reception was held outdoors. There was a food truck, professional cartoonists drawing caricatures, mini french fries, gorgeous GORGEOUS flowers, and a great day and evening for everyone.

Greg & Erica, thank you so much for letting me photograph your emotional, beautiful and fun day. You are a wonderful couple & I loved being able to capture all of the perfection that was your wedding. Wishing you all the love in the world! XOXO, marielle.
