Heather Scharf Photography bio picture
  • Welcome

    Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Crystal & Nate ~ Married! ~ Fairytale Backyard Wedding San Jose, Ca

They were throwing punches back and forth and the intensity was reaching an all time high.  Upper cut, upper cut, side punch, bob and weave, punch!  Knock out!  I can’t think of a better way to start a relationship than with a good fight.  Spectating a fight that is…I don’t recommend upper cutting someone you like…it might send the wrong message 😉  This was a boxing match that would forever have a special place in the hearts of Crystal and Nate because not only were punches flying, but sparks were too.  Crystal had gone to HP Pavillion for an amateur boxing match when her friend ran into one of her friends, Nate.  He had a VIP box and being ever so kind invited them to join him to watch the matches.  Nate took an immediate liking to Crystal.  In the days following, Nate made it his mission to get her number…and I am so happy he succeeded and pursued her, cuz they are seriously so beautiful together.  I met Crystal for the first time on her wedding day and knew right away she was my kind of chick.  She reminds me sooo much of one of my good friends and I immediately took a liking to her.  I felt how I think all their guest felt…right at home.

They purchased a beautiful home together and as they began to plan their wedding, they realized that they could relandscape their backyard and make a beautiful space for their intimate wedding instead of renting out a venue.  What a brilliant idea indeed because they will always be able to cherish so many amazing memories that happened right in their backyard.  I just loved all the garden gnomes and their wedding theme of Love Birds.  They had bird cages on all the tables with little porcelain birds inside them as well as custom wine lables with a love bird and their wedding date on them.  Beautiful wedding!  I am so happy for Crystal and Nate and hope they have many more boxing matches in their future…to spectate of course!

    Vicki Swanson - These pictures are just beautiful and the couple in them are beautiful too. They are very special to me and I know they will be like their grandparents and live more than 64 years in love with each other. It’s very rare for 2 people to have such lasting feelings for each other but I feel that with God’s help they will be in love forever. I wish them all the best and Heather the best for the beautiful pictures and helping to make their day so wonderful. Thank you…ReplyCancel
