Photography is so much more than just taking photos. In order to be truly good at my job, I must be able to capture the real beauty of my clients, the beauty that comes from within. When I first met Nikki and Keith, I was immediately struck by the joy and love that their family shares. It was easy to pick up on the excitement they felt from their recent engagement.
When Nikki suggested doing the engagement session at the Sutter Buttes near Yuba City, California I knew it would be the perfect setting to capture their special occasion. In August, the California hills are covered with beautiful golden grass. I chose a late evening appointment time so that the warm light would complement the golden grass and Nikki’s long blonde hair. The effect was stunning.
