Fishing anyone?  Oh you better believe it.

When I first met Andy + Liz we were chatting about their big day, how the met and what they love to do and the topic of fishing came up.   I asked if they had even been to Sportsman Warehouse and long story short…they hadn’t and practically ran out my studio door when I told them about the store.  It was classic.  And get this, Liz was the one insisting on them going.  I loved it.

And this “wedding date” sign…uummm, hello, PERFECT!   Andy’s dad made it for the session and it’s one of my favorite signs to date.  Totally them, totally perfect.

Here’s some of the fun we had in this fish-filled session.  I can’t wait for their wedding at Forest House Lodge.

Enjoy!

Flower Farm Inn Wedding, Sacramento Wedding Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

This amazing day was featured in Real Weddings Magazine Sacramento!  It was an amazing day and topped off with a theme that was close to my heart.  Baseball.  You have to take a moment to see all of these details, they were awesome.  Cracker Jack boxes as favors, tickets as place cards, a bat to sign as the guestbook, baseball themed cake and cupcakes…it was a homerun.  (I know, I suck at puns)

Enjoy!

Hobbs Family, 2013-101.jpg

The H Family, Roseville Family Photographer

So I don’t know if you are like my family…we are all over the country, no joke.  My sister is in Australia and family is in Oregon, Arizona and SoCal.  So when we get together, it’s a great thing.  And it’s even better to capture the moment and time passes so fast.  So that’s what the H Family did.  They were all together for the holidays and I met up with them a few days after Christmas to grab some family shots and generation shots too.

Here’s some information on Family Portraits…

How I approach sessions – Family portraits are often the best when we don’t try and make everyone look perfect!  I look for moments that fun and are genuine.  Everyone sitting together, laying around laughing or having a tickle fight… Mother and child staring at each other and making each other laugh… I typically always get photos with everyone looking at the camera but I will also do my best to capture some timeless, candid moments of your family.

Where sessions are located – I am available for photography sessions in your home, on location or in my Roseville studio.   My preference is to use natural light for photos so if your home is small or dark please consider the studio as it has beautiful natural light and lots of space.  I am also a big fan of on location sessions and have lists of places we can go.   Your portrait session will last around one hours to allow for an optional clothing change or  a snack breaks for children.  There is no rush and I fully encourage you to have fun and be yourself while I capture your family.

The dreaded…what to wear – I am definitely a blue jeans and white t-shirts kinda girl, but I encourage my clients to wear a variety of clothing with color and accessories.  I do provide some ideas for clothing inspiration if you so shall choose, just ask.  And don’t think this means a trip to the mall (unless it’s a good excuse for you too).  I always tell my clients to start with yourself, find a color in your closet that you love and build your outfit around it.    Textured fabrics like woolly sweaters and jackets work well.   Avoid logos or clothing with distracting patterns.  Have fun with it!

If you have any questions or would like to chat, please contact me and I would love to talk with you.

Sacramento Wedding Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

These two lovebirds had the most romantic, intimate ceremony at the gorgeous First United Methodist Church in Sacramento.   After the ceremony we headed up to El Dorado Hills for a backyard reception held in Shannon’s parents backyard.  It was perfect!  There was seating spaces all throughout this gorgeous, flower-filled area which made just walking around a total treat.  And a Bride and Groom’s table with cute homemade signs to celebrate these two’s marriage.

Not only was there a gorgeous wedding cake but there was a surprise visit from Rich’s Ice Cream Catering where all the guests lined up for some yummy treats.

Take a look at this perfect day…

Enjoy!
