Here is a quick look at one of my June couples – full post to follow. LOVED the colors, the couple and the LOVE!
When Jessie contacted me on my blog about an engagement session, I was excited to learn about her ideas on locations. Jessie grew up in the river towns, and wanted to have her session take place in a few different areas along the Sacramento River.
We started in a pear orchard off I-5, took a small drive into Locke, and then ended our session in Walnut Grove. It was unfortunate that we ran out of light early – I would have loved another hour with this adorable couple.
Thanks for the opportunity for such a beautiful session, Jessie and Reid. Congratulations and happy planning!
I thought I had small fingers at a size 4 1/2 – Jessie’s are so small that Reid had to have this ring custom-made to fit her little ring finger. This is a big pear, but Jessie’s ring size would be about a 3 3/4 if that size existed!
SO in love with this session! Can’t wait to post them all!

As many wedding photographers know, each wedding season is different from the last. One date in September may be in high demand one year, while a date in May might be popular the next. This year, August is my dry spot. Hey, prospective brides – I understand! Who wants to get married in the August heat anyway?! So due to my light August schedule, I am running a contest from now until August 8th at midnight. To enter, send me a message with a reason why I should choose you as the lucky winner of one August evening photo session. In this situation, creativity definitely counts! I will be sending the submissions anonymously to a panel of judges who will choose the most convincing story as the winner. And now for the rules…
- Offer limited to persons who “like” Trizza Grantham Photography on Facebook
- You must intend to take advantage of the offer in the month of August
- Session must take place within 50 miles of the Sacramento area
- Please don’t be stingy – tell all of your friends!
- The session schedule must work around the schedule of Trizza Grantham Photography. Weekend dates are unavailable. Please plan to have your session on a weeknight around 6:30pm.
-The session can be from any category including the following: family, children, newborn, engagement, maternity, seniors, or boudoir
- Winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 10th
And because I can’t post without including an image from a recent session, here is a little something to enjoy… A few more from Aubree and Mathew’s session.
Aubree is every photographer’s dream bride. She’s beautiful, organized, and booked her wedding photographer a year in advance. That’s right – Aubree and Mathew aren’t tying the knot until next June, but here they are, already looking amazing in their engagement portraits. Can’t wait for their wedding next year at River Highlands Ranch!
My way of beating the icky-day blues is to post a lovely sunny-day session. (However, this is not a good excuse for you to stay away in June, sun. Get it together already!) Jennifer and Michael chose me to shoot their September wedding, and I am thrilled to capture this sweet couple’s celebration at Sun City Lincoln’s Orchard Creek Lodge. Jennifer planned for us to meet at Sierra College in Rocklin for a session in the Nature Trail Preserve. If you have the chance to walk the trails, they are beautiful! However, here are a few things to prepare for…
We made sure to watch for the local residents:
And I armed us with the proper outdoor product, which was a lifesaver:
After that, we were on our way!
And remember these shoes from last week? I LOVED the bright color, and remember that I said you would be surprised at who the designer was?
The designer is NASCAR! Check out the checkered flag running down the soles:
Thanks Jennifer and Michael – you two are awesome, and I can’t wait for September!
My new blogging goal is simple: to keep up! For this reason, I am attempting to post at least twice per week. Even if it’s just a teaser leading to a bigger and better post, I want to leave my readers something to enjoy until my busy little family gives me a chance to throw out something new. This is a small glimpse from my session this week with Jennifer and Michael. I have been tickled by my last couple of brides and their choices in shoes. Jennifer rocked these orange heels, and you won’t believe who the designer is! Unfortunately, I’m going to leave you hanging and wait until the full post next week to reveal that information. Keep watching for it!
Just a small preview for this sweet couple – thanks again for a wonderful evening, Lindsi and Jason! I’m looking forward to your October celebration!
Lindsi has gorgeous eyes.
LOVED the little church that Jason suggested we visit:
I also fell in love with Lindsi’s shoes. I can see a trip to Nordstrom’s in my future!
I often tell my clients that my engagement sessions are more for me than they are for the couple. I need time with my newly engaged clients – most of them are not experienced models, and are often uncomfortable in front of the camera. This is the reason that I insist on an engagement session with every wedding package. I want to give my couples a practice session before their big day. The wedding day is certainly not the time to practice – everyone involved is pressed for time and it is often hard for the bride and groom to focus. Going into the big day with a session under the belt helps us all relax. My clients are able to learn how I work and what they can expect from me and vice versa.
This couple is just awesome – they are naturals in front of the camera. Allana and Jeremy will have no problems on their wedding day when it comes to their formal portraits. I am definitely looking forward to their wedding in June!
