Wedding photographer at Soda Rock Winery, Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Jessica and Travis

This lovely and sweet Jewish wedding took place at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Soda Rock Winery screams rustic barn county wedding complete with vineyards to take your wedding photographs!  The stone architecture and vintage barn which allows light to cascade in for the most epic artistic wedding photos.  Getting to be a wedding photographer in this barn is so exciting as the light is so dramatic and lends itself to editorial wedding photography.  I also love the reflection of the vineyards in the barn windows where I took Jessica and Travis’ wedding couple portraits.  Gorgeous light is abound this amazing venue.  I took Jessica’s bridal portrait with and without her wedding party in the window which framed her perfectly!

There was so many amazing things around including a fun photo booth where the guests showed off their charms, and Jessica gave Travis a saber knife as his Groom’s Gift. Travis hacked off the cork off of a champagne bottle like a ninja warrior!  Mazel tov to Jessica and Travis for the adventure of a lifetime!

 

Wedding Photographer at Hummingbird Nest Ranch near Ojai, CA. Melissa and Ron

Hummingbird Nest Ranch is nestle between Ojai and Santa Barbara, CA and is one of the most incredible places for a wedding and your wedding photos will literally glow!  This place is utterly magical with all the nooks and crannies to have your wedding photos taken.  From the grove of live oak trees, to the mansion and the swimming pool, this place is so uber glamorous.  Artistic and editorial wedding photography is at it’s finest here with all it’s decadence. Melissa and Ron are from Texas so a big ranch was in order for their wedding ceremony and reception.  They had a opulent grooms cake as well as a wedding cake and Melissa had to take a taste of the white chocolate as soon as possible!  Then this gorgeous couple had a rolls royce show up as their guests all lined up to bid them adieu with a sparkler exit.  What a fabulous wedding!

Wedding photographer in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. Cathy and Mike

What a wedding at The Hyatt in Lake Tahoe at Incline Beach. The bride and groom wanted their wedding photos to reflect their sporty lifestyle so they arrived at the beach on SUP paddle boards and Cathy was pregnant with their first child!  It was  gorgeous blue sky day for their ceremony and their wedding images look so bright and cheery and reflect the fun love of the outdoors they have.  I used natural light mostly in their wedding photography althought I did fill flash a bit as there a bit of back lighting at times.  Beautiful day at Lake Tahoe for Cathy and Mike to get married.  BRAVO!

Lovely Wedding at San Francisco City Hall.  I loved photographing this couple’s wedding images by framing them in a silhouette at City Hall in San Francisco.  We had so much with their exit as well as all the guests jumped for the wedding images and it was such a fun celebration.  We also took a wedding detail image of Natalie, the bride’s, cute little blue shoes.  San Francisco City hall has the most exquisite architecture and it always looks spectacular in wedding photography!  I love photographing weddings at City Hall! Here’s wishing Natalie and Mike a beautiful life together!

The San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA is always such a majestic place for a wedding! I love the archways and the architecture to frame couples in their wedding photography.  The light comes in over Mount Tam and creates the most beautiful golden hour to capture their first dance and makes for gorgeous artistic wedding images.  There wasn’t a dry eye after Roger’s brother gave the most emotional toast and I photographed all the reactions in true photojournalism style trying to be stealth using my long lens.  Such a beautiful venue for a wedding and I love that this couple finally found each other!  Many blessings!
