Wedding Photographer at Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa Valley, CA. Briana and Matthias

A lovely wine country wedding ceremony and reception at the historic Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa, CA. Briana and Matthias know how to pick a location.  This little chapel in Napa Valley is divine for wedding photography.  It’s nestled into the vineyards on top of a hill and has European architecture to make your wedding images have a vintage antiquity to them.  The gardens are so beautiful as well to take your formal wedding photographs or the couple portraits.  Beautiful magic hour light comes in around sunset highlighting all the traditions so your wedding images reflect the magic of your wedding ceremony and reception.  I love taking artistic photos on these grounds and the twinkle lights add the ambiance.  Such a beautiful day for Brian and Matthias to tie the knot.  Lucky me to get to be their wedding photographer in Napa Valley, no less!

Bat and Bar Mitzvah photographer at Rodef Sholom in San Rafael, Marin County. Lauren.

A stellar Bat Mitzvah at Rodef Sholom for Lauren!  I love that one of the kids had a tattoo that said vote!  As a Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographer I get to capture so many fun images of their day and there is always so much emotion.  It’s such an honor to shoot these images and turn them into family heirlooms.  I try to capture all the details and going ons in an artistic way but being a photojournalist type of photographer I prefer to shoot with a long lens not to disturb the conversation.  These Bat Mitzvah images are memories to last many life times!  Mazel Tov!

Petaluma Senior Portrait Photographer – Audrey’s Senior Portraits in Petaluma, Sonoma County

There’s something in the air in Petaluma to have so many beautiful girls that somehow I’m lucky enough to get to photograph. Audrey is so lovely and we loved scouting out locations as we were shooting to capture Petaluma, CA which is where Audrey has lived her most of her life. She says it’s the best place to grow up although she is excited to go to college somewhere different. She might come back to Petaluma but she doesn’t know the future. Here’s to an incredible and exciting future for you and many returns to Sonoma County if we’re lucky!

Chalk Hill Winery Annual White Party in Healdsburg, CA. Sonoma County event Photographer.

Chalk Hill Winery of Foley Family Wines in Healdsburg knows how to throw a party!  It was their annual white party and everyone came donned in their best white apparel. There was the most incredible food stations from paella, to halibut, to trout petite fours to fresh fried doughnuts.  And let’s not forget the wine!  Wine was being poured and everyone was imbibing on this Sunday Fun day.  Bill Foley, the owner and proprietor of Chalk Hill Winery along with 22 other wineries in the region and now proud owner of the Las Vegas Knights was in attendance with his wife and children.  The Stanley Cup was there in all it’s glory and guests were taking selfies with it.  It was a splendid affair with all the right ingredients for a wine country fete on top of the world.
