Wedding Date: May 17, 2009
Photography by: True Love Photo
What was the most amazing part of your day?
The photography definitely.
What else would you like to share about your big day?
Our ceremony was performed by one of my best friends, Lisa Croll DiDio, a minister and priestess, who also happens to be a novelist and helped us sharpen our self-written ceremony. We included a traditional Scottish hand-fasting, having our wrists bound by ivy. The ceremony had an earth-centered spiritual flavor and included a poem by Hafiz.
Photographer – True Love Photo
Cake – Cupcakes by Cupcake Craving
Flowers – Strelitzia Florist
Wedding Dress – Britt Steele Fashion Gallery
Bridesmaid Dresses – (none) our flower girl and ringbearer chose their own clothing
DJ – We didn’t have a DJ but I spent HOURS compiling a wedding playlist of our favorite music, trying to keep it a bit different but still neutral. My entrance song was “Honeysuckle” by folksinger Joules Graves.
Honeymoon location – Nevada City
Hair – Sheri & Teri of HAIR
Makeup – Image Provocateur
Awesome lace-up bride’s moccasins – Medieval Moccasins (highly recommend these as an alternative to traditional shoes plus they’re just so darn fun)
First Dance Song – no dancing 🙂 just socializing and keeping it informal.
My name is Beth Baugher, a Sacramento native, been in the business for 17 years. I started at the bottom, the absolute bottom, the ‘taco bell’ of photography doing 100 photos a day in stores like Rite Aid and Long’s.
I had a beach background and a camera so old it practically let out a puff of smoke when I hit the trigger.
I would literally be in the shopping cart area or in the medicine aisle knocking over the fast actin‘ tanactin.
One crying two year old after the next. Tough gig!!
It has been all up hill from there.
I worked at a one hour photo/studio lab, glamour shots, kiddy sports photography, many many years in high school photography, for a big local studio, and now finally for myself. I LOVE IT!!
I feel SO blessed to be able to make a living doing something I absolutely LOVE.
Oh the stories I could tell…I have literally shot 350-400 weddings! So I feel I can call myself a ‘seasoned pro.’ Able to really work quickly and direct well when needed.
I am good with natural light and posing and portraits, but my FAVORITE part of being a wedding photographer is capturing emotions. I love to tell a story.
I think of your grandchildren and perhaps great great grandchildren having a glimpse into your love story, their family history through viewing your wedding photos.
