Family Portraits by Davis CA photographer

Posted on: August 17th, 2014

Last week I held a small group class on family portrait photography and was able to photograph my friend McKinley’s family that evening. Summer nights in California are perfect for outdoor portraits, and these beautiful shots taken around sunset at the UC Davis arboretum are just what I am talking about….

April + Chris: Downtown Sacramento Summer Wedding by Sacramento Wedding Photographer

Posted on: July 22nd, 2014

April and Chris are so perfect for each other, and it was my privilege to be able to shoot their wedding this June in Downtown Sacramento, CA at the Elks Tower Ballroom.  They are so full of joy and have so much love for their family and friends.  April is a fellow actress, and I always enjoy working with theatre people on their wedding days *(we really love the production element, what can I say?).   Here are a few favorites from their wedding day.

Amy Shuman Photography in Spring/Fall Sacramento Bride and Groom Magazine

Posted on: June 30th, 2014

Big news for the next issue of Sacramento Bride and Groom magazine! In my second issue with them, I won the spot as the Fall cover image (with some help from the gorgeous Jaclyn and Mike and their amazing wedding)! This cover is not available in stores until September, but I received an advanced set of copies for my brides. It’s always an honor to be featured in this publication, and special congrats to all the couples who are in this issue. I have flipped through and photographed just the Amy Shuman Photography images for those of you who aren’t local and won’t get this print version.

Cheers to all the couple and all the artists who make these special days and photo shoots possible!

Napa Wedding Proposal by Sacramento Wedding Photographer {Tom and Amanda}

Posted on: June 16th, 2014

Tom and Amanda had been planning their California vacation for months, but little did Amanda know how much more Tom was planning for this trip.  Tom and I spoke over the phone for weeks trying to find just the right location for him to pop the question, and he envisioned proposing at some gorgeous winery in Napa Valley.

When we got to the second stop on their tasting schedule, Domaine Chandon, everything felt right.  The friendly staff, the beautiful views, and the little tucked away areas on the hillside were just what Tom had hoped to find.

 

And so….

And next it was time to call the family!  Tom had asked Amanda’s Dad for his blessing the day before, but her Mom found out over the phone moments after it happened…

Tom and Amanda also joined the wine club at Chandon, and look forward to receiving their club shipments as sweet reminders of their amazing day.
