  • The Memory Journalists team has agreed to do a friendly monthly competition between our four photographers, Jen, Teresa, Kelly and me, Isabel. We will be sharing one photo each week that interprets our vision of the month's theme. For the month of February, our photo category is "silhouettes with a theme of LOVE" in honor of Valentine's Day coming up. The rules are simple - an image can be taken with either with our i-phones or our big cameras ;) We just have to mention why we took the photo or why we were inspired by it. When possible, we'll give you our camera settings too.

    To get this Month's photo of the week started....drum roll...please.... here is my share. I'm a sucker for silhouettes. I LOVE them!! I love this shot because as much as it captures the beauty of the sky it also captures the love between these two.

  • Teresa and I met up with Naomi and Mark earlier this week for a date night engagement session in downtown Sacramento. Their wedding is tomorrow but we still wanted to just hang and have some fun. I think it's always better to get to know each other better before the wedding day. I know they both will now feel so much more comfortable with us snapping our cameras all day in front of their faces. And we had such a good time too!

  • We found the most perfect spot of light to get our evening started.

  • I'm not sure how we managed to get this photo without others in it. There were a few stragglers at the Capitol but not many.

  • While I was changing a lens, Teresa caught Naomi posing and having fun. I'm not sure she even knew we were getting these photos!

  • Davis is where these two met. So Davis is where we decided to shoot Kristen and Brad's date night session. We started out with a nice little appetizer and a happy hour drink at Sophia's Tai Kitchen.

  • This was just outside of the restaurant. I just love all the colors and feel of Davis.

  • Jen first met Kristen several years ago at another wedding, where Kristen performs as part of an orchestra. Ever since, Kristen has stayed in touch with Jen to make sure when the day came that she got married, that The Memory Journalists could photograph her wedding.

  • Last week I met up with Jill and Kevin at Scott's Seafood by the river for their engagement photos. Jill and I sat in the mighty cold bar and sipped on a drink while we waited for Kevin to arrive. His flight earlier in the day had been cancelled, and he came straight from the airport to meet us for our date night session.

  • Good thing the AC worked so well inside, because outside seemed like the hottest day of the week....until this week.

  • engagement photos by the river

  • We headed outside just before the golden hour.

  • I just love this bridge that takes you to the water's edge. The leading lines are my favorite.

  • And here the lines make for a great frame.

  • The Memory Journalists met up with Jillian and Jeff a week ago for their date night session (our version of an engagement session) in Auburn. Teresa and I met them at Carpe Vino. We were so lucky to miss the heat wave. It was a whole 15 degrees cooler then the day before our session. 106 degrees is definitely not ideal shooting conditions. We loved Old Auburn. The light was just delightful, almost as delightful as these two.
