Bridal Portrait Inspired Shoot | Love Will Keep Us Warm | Grass Valley, CA

Most people who know me, know that I hate to be cold. So when a group of photographers asked me to help put together a Bridal Portrait inspired shoot in Grass Valley, Ca. I knew I was in for it. As I watched the forcast go from sunny to rain to snow, I began to ask myself what I had gotten myself into. I had lead a shoot just like this in Santa Barbara recently, but that was on the beach with beautiful weather. Well let me just say…Weather can really set the mood. Though it was cold outside, bleak and misty, it didn’t stop these two hearts from staying warm in eachothers arms. So the next time it rains on your parade, or your photoshoot, or even old man winter decides to show up one last time, my advice would be to go with it. (and wear snow boots) You might be cold for a day, but the images that you create will warm your heart for a lifetime. Enjoy!

Beach Bridal Portraits By Napa Area Wedding Photographer Rochelle Wilhelms

These beautiful Beach Bridal Portraits were taken a couple weeks ago In Santa barbara for a shoot that I was leading this year at United 2014. Some 50 plus sleepy-eyed photographers gathered at sunrise to come learn and create stunning images by using 10 yards of flowing fabric. This is just a small sampling of my favorites while leading and shooting at the same time (not an easy thing to do). A sincere THANK YOU goes out everyone who got up early, or never went to bed and attended this crazy windblown shoot. Virtual Hugs and Kisses go to the following people of whom I would have never pulled this off:

Assistant Lead: Timothy Eyrich
Model: Amanda Walker
Stylist: Stacy Childers
MUA: Cassidy Zellmann

Dustin and Caty | Tucsan Wedding | The Gallery | Reflections at the Buttes

What a weekend! Last month Michael and I flew out to Tuscan Arizona, for Dustin and Caty’s amazing wedding at The Gallery. Upon meeting the family and all their friends, I just knew this was going to be a special wedding. The couple decided to have a first look (which always makes the photographer happy) to ensure for enough light for a couples portrait session. I couldn’t have been happier! With tender moments happening everywhere, I was like a kid in a candy store. There are so many beautiful images from this wedding that I can’t even share them all. Below are just a small sampling of some of my favorites.

Dustin and Caty, Thank you so much for entrusting Rochelle Wilhelms Photography to capture your day and the love between you two. You are an amazing couple and I am so honored to have photographed for you!
Blessings to you and yours,

Rochelle
