Wedding Proposal photography by Sacramento photographer

Posted on: September 4th, 2017

Robert and Ariel are engaged! I was so happy to be able to capture their proposal in downtown Sacramento and then get a few “newly engaged” portraits at sunset. Looking forward to their wedding next year!

Engagement portraits: Davis, CA wedding photographer: Kelsey and Brandon

Posted on: October 9th, 2015

Kelsey and Brandon are an awesome couple and I am so excited to be capturing their wedding next year! We got together at the end of September for their engagement shoot at the lovely arboretum at UC Davis (a University they both attended). Here are a few of my favorite images:

It’s really admirable that they can see past their intense baseball rivalry and still love each other…

Engagement Photos by Sacramento, CA wedding photographer: Arri and Peter

Posted on: May 2nd, 2015

There is a magical time at Folsom Lake where large patches of lupines bloom each Spring. We were fortunate enough to catch that time this April for Arri and Peter’s engagement session. We had such a great time hiking along the lake and enjoying the weather and the views. Can’t wait to photograph their wedding day this November! Here are some favorites from our shoot last weekend:

Engagement Photos by Woodland wedding photographer: Jinn and Mike

Posted on: May 2nd, 2015

It was so fun to be able to take Jinn and Mike’s engagement photos at a location that is so near to Jinn’s (and my) heart. Jinn grew up with the Woodland Opera House, a beautiful historic landmark and local theatre company, and so we were able to get inside for a few pictures. The plaza is also home to the wine bar business that Jinn and Mike are opening this summer: Uvaggio. So excited to photograph their wedding in December!

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.

We took a few more shots on the grounds at the winery… Tom and Amanda in that “newly engaged” bliss….

San Francisco engagement by Sacramento wedding photographer: Kristy and Paul

Posted on: February 26th, 2014

Kristy and Paul are so wonderful together! They love to have fun and be silly and you can’t help but see how perfect they are together when you are in their company. They are so warm, kind, and hospitable (even fed my assistant, Kelli, and I cheese and crackers half way through the session!) and a true joy to photograph. I am honored to be shooting their wedding this September in the bay area!

Allison and Brian engagement photos ~ by Davis, CA wedding photographer

Posted on: January 24th, 2014

Allison and Brian met through running. She started a running group on her college campus and he joined… the rest is history! When we were talking about ideas for their shoot they realized they didn’t have any photos of them running together, even though it is a big part of their lives and their story. I was happy to document this perfect day at Sacramento State University. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding in March!

Sacramento wedding photographer featured in Sacramento Bride and Groom Magazine!

Posted on: January 3rd, 2014

A new year brings some changes and exciting new opportunities for my business! Last Fall I met the owners of Sacramento Bride and Groom Magazine and they asked me about becoming one of their featured photographers. This January marks my first issue with them, and I am thrilled for this new partnership! You can pick up this magazine in the Sacramento area at grocery stores and other magazine retailers (as well as at local bridal shows). For those who aren’t local, I photographed the images from Amy Shuman Photography that they chose to feature. It is not one of our images on the cover, but we did place as 5th runner up in the cover contest, which was very wonderful, indeed!  Starting the new year with gratitude and joy.

Congratulations to Sarah and Mike, Leslie and James, and Trevor and Julia for having their photographs chosen for this issue!

Shawna and Reid engagement by Sacramento wedding photographer

Posted on: December 14th, 2013

Shawna and Reid are engaged! It was such a joy to witness their love and their fun personalities. They are a perfect match! We had so much fun being silly during this engagement shoot on the rooftops above downtown Sacramento, CA. It’s also always a treat to get to work with fellow artists. Shawna is a fim maker/videographer and Reid is a musician. On top of all that, they are both kind, generous and beautiful people. Here are some of my favorites from the sunset shoot.
