Sacramento Shoe Blogs – Wizard of Shoes

While LeBron James’ NBA season has officially come to an end, thanks to a lingering groin injury that occurred this year, that hasn’t stopped the superstar forward from showing off new kicks on the sideline. http://wizardofshoes.com/

During last night’s matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz, James was spotted rocking the upcoming “Remix” LeBron 16 in the Staples Center as part of Nike’s ongoing #LeBronWatch program. According to the brand, the latest offering is inspired by a blend of player-exclusive Zoom LeBron 3 colorways.

Releasing on Apr. 30, the kicks boast a white Battleknit 2.0 that’s paired with a shiny black patent leather mudguard and heel counter. Adding classic details to the modern design are the signature lion tongue tag and the classic “LBJ23” logo embroidered on the medial side. Finishing off the look is red Swoosh branding on the side as well as a white, metallic gold and red midsole underneath.

Important Exterior Home Maintenance (& Improvement) Tasks from Sacramento

https://alwaysshinewindows.com/

Keeping up with exterior maintenance is critical to your home’s long-term health. With good exterior maintenance, you can keep your home in great shape year round. We have a special addition this month – some excellent information on solar from our friends at A1 Solar!

Below you’ll find some of the recommended exterior maintenance items. Good news…Always Shine can help with ALL of these!

  • Clean exterior windows: Clean exterior windows make your home look nice — but they also protect the lifespan of your windows. Over time, harsh elements outdoors can damage your windows. Weather damage, pollution, minerals, rust, and other elements can adhere to the glass, causing buildup and damage. Clean your windows, and you’ll not only see better outside, you’ll keep your windows healthy and well maintained.
  • Clean gutters: Gutters often get clogged with leaves, seeds, and other debris. This can lead to problems including overflow, mold, rot, pest infestations, and even flooding damage. It an also diminish the lifespan of your shingles and paint. While gutter cleaning is especially important in late fall, it is important year-round to keep your drainage system working free of cloges and to avoid damage. You should also inspect your gutters for damage and sagging and repair any issues.
  • Clean your driveway and walkways: Your driveway and walkways are full of dirt, grime, mold, mildew, and toxins — and all of those can be tracked into your home and even cause slips and falls. Pressure wash your driveway and walkways, removing not just stains, but harmful buildup.
  • Pressure wash exterior walls: Whether you have siding, brick, stone, or stucco, you’ll need to periodically pressure wash exterior walls to remove mold, mildew, and dirt. Doing so helps to discourage rot and makes your home look more attractive. Add Roof cleaning/moss removal to this list.
  • Solar Panel Cleaning: Solar Panel Cleaning is absolutely necessary if you want to maximize the return on your investment and keep your system shining brightly.

D+K’s Intimate San Francisco Engagement Session

Wedding Photography

This session started out at the most special place, a local German restaurant, where D+K went on their first date.  It was a blind date set up by their friends.  And from there, they totally hit it off and they couldnt think of a more perfect place to begin their engagement session, and neither could I!  I had so much fun shooting this special time in thier lives.  Engagement sessions are always my favorite, because once you get married, you will be someone’s bride or groom for life.  But being engaged, and being a fiance only lasts a short time!  That feeling of anticipation, excitement, and curiosity is something so special and I’m so honored to be able to freeze this moment in time for them!  Also, take note of their perfect outfits!  K got hers from Morninglavender.com and D went with grey and navy suits, which ARE the new black!  Enjoy just a few of my favorites from their session! It was so hard to choose!!

2019 Popular Wedding Film Styles

Popular Wedding Film Styles

You’ve decided that having a wedding video is an absolute must (good choice – a lot of couples regret saying “no” to video). Your next decision is the type of wedding film style you want. Once you’ve explored and found your favorite, you can look for a videographer with a matching aesthetic.

Cinematic
In cinematic wedding videography, you’ll notice some of the same angles, filters and transitions you’ve seen in the movies (aerial shots and slow motion, for example). Instead of adhering to the timeline of the day, the videographer will create a non-linear video that evokes a certain emotion and theme. This creative approach means you’ll have a wedding video that looks like a bona fide film.

Journalistic
Journalistic wedding videography (or documentary wedding videography) takes a different approach: the day is presented in a linear timeline, showing everything from morning prep to the end of the reception. Your videographer may even interview the bride, groom and guests for commentary, then use the sound bites to enhance the story.

Short Form
Short form wedding films are edited versions of the full video. They typically range from 15 to 50 minutes, showcasing the brightest and most touching moments that capture the emotion of the day without dragging on. While short form films can be journalistic, they’re best when cinematic because the style allows for more creativity. Your videographer may also provide the full length video.

Storytelling
Storytelling wedding videography is a type of cinematic film style that incorporates elements to tell the couple’s love story. For example, your videographer may add narration, music or text to put a focus on the bride and groom’s experience. Aesthetic elements and amusing parts of the day are usually left out.

Traditional
Traditional wedding videography is captured with a handheld camera and without additional cinematic equipment, like drones. There’s a focus on the wedding ceremony and reception, but not on smaller details and candid moments. These videos may be two or three hours long.

We offer wedding videography in Los Angeles to capture your special day. Contact us for more information.

Wedding Photo Sacramento

This wedding was just breathtaking.  As you will see from these photos the venue is gorgeous and the Mountain even made a grand appearance right before I left.  But what I really loved about this wedding was the deep love and affection everyone showed one another.  It was truly great to see laughter, joyful tears and such patience as the day unfolded.  So in the PNW you never know how to predict the weather and in May it is very 50/50 on if the sun will make an appearance.  The weather was showing a 75% rain forecast but every hour it kept pushing the rain out and out and the sun even came out.  My favorite part was when the sun came out right as it sprinkled slightly right when Jessica started walking down the isle and I also loved the frogs making huge noises during the opening prayer!  These memories will always be there and I hope these photos will help bring back the experience of how beautiful their wedding was.

So these two met at a running group in Sacramento CA.  They both noticed each other right away but become friends first.  Interestingly enough they both said their first backpacking trip to Mt Hood was the moment they knew that they wanted to be together forever!  Garrett said, “I fell in love with her adventure and constant smile during that trip.”  And Jessica said, “I realized when he was applying sunscreen on my back that I enjoyed his touch a little too much for a friend!”  This was the trip that began their love journey.  It was on that mountain top they had their first kiss and the rest is history!  So it is a perfect fit that they picked this beautiful venue and that the mountain which means so much to them both decided to make an appearance before the night had arrived.

Sacramento Kitchen Remodeling

Remodeling your kitchen is an exciting process. You probably spend a lot of time in your kitchen each day, so this is the kind of project that you will get to enjoy for years to come. Whether you simply want some new counters or you want to renovate the entire space, America’s Advantage remodeling is here to help. https://aaremodels.com/

If you are looking for kitchen remodeling ideas to kick off your upcoming project, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at a few ideas you may want to incorporate into your plans.

Upgrade Your Counters

Okay – so this isn’t exactly a creative idea, as it is something that most people seek to do when completing a kitchen remodel. Yet, we still need to mention it here, as it is often the best place to start your plans. Once you determine what kind of counters you want to use, and how you want those counters to look, the rest of the job may fall into place nicely.

How About Two Ovens?

For someone who loves to cook – and bake, specifically – designing a kitchen with two ovens is an interesting idea. Every serious home cook has run into trouble at one time or another with not having enough space in the oven for everything on the menu. Including a second oven in your final design may be surprisingly affordable, and you’ll have much more flexibility when it comes to planning your meals.

Respect the Value of Space

One of the most important simple kitchen renovation ideas to remember is that empty space can be quite valuable. In other words, you don’t want to overcrowd your kitchen in order to pack in as many features as possible. Having plenty of room to move around as you cook – and having plenty of room for your guests when having a party – is valuable.

Think Big Picture

When having a remodel completed in your kitchen, you don’t want to have to go back and make further changes only a few years down the line. This is a project you want to stand the test of time, so do your best to think ahead while planning the project. Is your life set to change in a meaningful way in the years to come? For instance, are you going to have children, or do you have young children who will quickly be getting bigger and needing more space?

Avoid Extremes

It’s likely that your house is one of the most valuable assets you own – if not the most valuable. With that in mind, spending money on a kitchen renovation which is unusual in some major way probably isn’t the best idea. For instance, let’s just say you never use an oven when you cook – should you leave an oven out of your plan? Maybe not – when the time comes to sell your home, the new owner is almost certainly going to want such a standard feature. This is a basic example, but you get the idea. Avoid doing anything that is going to make it harder for you to get top dollar for your home later on.

When looking for kitchen design & remodeling ideas, remember to view everything through your own lens. Think about your needs, preferences, and long-term goals before finalizing your design. And, of course, feel free to contact America’s Advantage Remodeling for assistance. We can help with the design phase of your job, and we can then bring it to life once the design is finalized. Thanks for reading, and we hope to work with you soon! https://aaremodels.com/services/kitchen-remodeling/

sacramento wedding videographer

I will always remember the feel of the smooth red leather on my parents wedding album; the thick whitepages with protective clear lining in between; the tiny vintage photo corners that held each image captive. I loved flipping through those large album pages as a kid. It’s like I was there at the wedding and my mom was truly smiling at me through those photos. That radiant smile in black and white I’ll never forget.

As wedding industry professionals, those are the types of moments we want to create for our clients: be it their kids, themselves or their parents. Strolling through memory lanes and bringing back memories that should not be forgotten is important. While video and photography go hand in hand in preserving memories, today we’d like to focus on photography and introduce not only a dear friend of our company, but also a truly skilled artist. Sergey Bidun has been a photographer for an extended time and if he would change careersthe photography industry would be at a disadvantage! We’ve interviewed Sergey and find it valuable to share with our readers. So, grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable.

Sergey, please introduce yourself.

I’m Sergey, and I live in Sacramento with my wife and kids. I love cycling and traveling, but spending time with family surpasses it all. Wedding and portraits photography has been my career for the last decade. 

Where do you get your inspiration from?

My inspiration comes from different sources: my family, places I visit, people I meet, and especially creative work of fellow photographers.

What are your favorite places to shoot?

Each photo session that I do requires hours of preparation, including finding perfect location. Some of my favorite local sites are Old Sacramento/ Downtown area and Folsom Lake area. Lately, creative portrait sessions in the studio have been my favorite as it gives me full control of lighting conditions.

How did you get started in photography?

My interest in photography goes back more than twelve years. I received a simple camera from my dad and started taking photos of anything and everything. After submitting a couple of images online for contest, I received positive feedback and decided to keep shooting! At first, I was mostly shooting landscape and nature photos, but soon moved on to weddings and families. I currently specialize in professional portraits, commercial photography, as well as wedding photography. 

With all the changes in technology what is one unique feature you provide for clients?

With rapid changes and upgrades in technology, I still strive to provide my clients with physical prints, in addition to the digital images that they are receiving. In our digital world, I believe it’s so important to have printed products such as albums and photo prints. 

What tip can you give to brides to get the most out of their wedding?

The most important tip I can give to the bride on her wedding day is to relax and not stress out. Sometimes, the bride can take on too many responsibilities and that will keep her from enjoying her wedding day to the fullest. My advice to all the future brides is to be yourself and enjoy every single moment of your Big Day. 

If you were not capturing stories through photos, what do you see yourself doing?

If I wouldn’t be photographing people, I would probably be working as an IT technician. I went to school for computers and programming, but changed my career path to photography after discovering my passion for it. 

Thank you Sergey for your time!  If you still need a photographer for your special day, don’t hesitate to connect with Sergey.
