Tim+Marina: Roseville Lifestyle Shoot

November 4, 2011

Some people just capture all of one’s being and pull others to themselves like gravity. Tim and Marina are one such couple. I could shoot these two every single day and twice on Sunday. Tim is incredibly smart, the guy knows Greek and is in the process of conquering Hebrew. Oh and if you’d see him on a volleyball field. But more than talents and abilities, he is more like an older brother with wisdom to give and moments to spare to simply listen and to care. Marina . . . where do I start with this girl? She has the most lovable personality. Extremely creative, fun, easy going, and in many ways simple. Yet her true beauty is in the ability to show love and care, to sympathize with others, to listen, and to use simple things to beautify others’ lives. When I think of Marina, I think of a single white flower in the glass bottle decorating their living room and the simple beauty it brings with it; a cup of tea ready to be offered with the warmest smile, and a heart ready to love and to give. My world is so much more beautiful because of these two people in my life.

Tim and Marina, I love you! Thank you for being you. For your smiles and kind words, and especially for your trust, and support along the way. It’s people like you who I’m indebted to for where I am today in my life, in my photography skills, and in my business. Having said that, grab a cup of tea and enjoy a sneak peek into the couple’s life!

We started off in their apartment with waffles and coffee, a great compliment to any shoot!

And then we headed for the woods . . .

Girl crush? Marina, you are beautiful.

And this is what love looks like in black and white . . .

Time flies. It seem like I just photographed your wedding, and it’s already been over a year.

Woods in Sacramento, who would have thought? :)

And because a little bit of music is good for the soul, you can watch a slideshow of these images HERE!

And as all good stories it ends with “The End”
