Wedding at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg. Sonoma County. Kira and Jeremy.

A truly beautiful wine country wedding at Soda Rock Winery in the Alexander Valley close to Healdsburg.  These wedding images were so dynamic and fun to shoot in the barn with the natural light screaming in from all the cracks and crannies.  Talk about an exquisite rustic backdrop for your wedding photos to be taken.  There were so many emotional photos to take but mostly there was laughter!  Kira’s Dad gave the welcome toast and gave the couple baseball hats to their opposing teams they are fans of.  Then I loved taking the dance photos as Kira just rocked out in true rock star form with Jeremy cheering her on.  You can’t go wrong getting married at Soda Rock Winery with their incredible backdrop of vineyards to take your wedding images and their rustic barn to have your wedding ceremony in. Cheers to Kira and Jeremy!

 

Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. Mandy and Curt.

Mandy & Curt were married at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. The incredible natural beauty of this place is incomparable and taking wedding photographs is a wedding photographer’s dream come true! This is where The Kennedy’s used to stay on vacation and many other celebrities have gotten married at this beautiful hotel.  The wedding images were very edgy and fashion forward for wedding imagery as Mandy works in the fashion industry and had a lot of input into how she wanted her wedding photos to look.  I also love love love fashion photography so it was so fun to shoot her photos and have her pose in an editorial way.  We used mostly natural light during the pre ceremony for their couple shots but did a lot off camera flash for the reception wedding photos.  Such a fun to shoot this couple at this iconic hotel!

 

Wedding at Renaissance Lodge Sonoma. Annie and Chris

What a fantastic venue the Renaissance Lodge in Sonoma, is to get married at!  You can use their gorgeous lobby to produce Annie Leibovitz type wedding photos of your bridal party or utilize their driveway as an incredible backdrop for your wedding images of your family photos.  The courtyard is exceptional for your wedding ceremony and the light is perfect to capture your vows on camera.  Such fun and playful images were captured of Annie and Chris….I particularly love the photo of Chris getting caught in Annie’s veil when we were taking the couple photographs right after the ceremony.  We had a blast taking all these fun and artistic wedding photographs!

Luther Burbank Center Event at Rodney Strong Winery in Healdsburg, CA.

What a beautiful event the Luther Burbank Center put on for their donors and sponsors at Rodney Strong Winery in Healdsburg.  Here is some of the event photography from it and had fun playing with flash as the ambient lighting was superb and I had to photograph it with bouncing my flash as I didn’t want the event lighting to get washed out in the photos.  Extraordinary venue for a party and had fun capturing everyone having a blast drinking wine and listening to speakers.

Wedding at Marin Art and Garden Center, San Anselmo, CA. Melissa and Greg.

The Marin Art and Garden Center has the most gorgeous flora and fauna and to have your wedding here is the best idea ever.  Such gorgeous color everywhere that pop in your wedding photography and the light shifts in highlighting all the plants to make sure your wedding images are artistic and gorgeous!  Melissa and Greg were so sweet during their first look together.  I loved how Melissa turned into a little girl and it was really sweet to get to document such a moment on their wedding day!  Much love to both of them.

Wedgwood Wedding in Oakland, CA Sheneesha and Marc

Love how sweet Marc and Sheneesha were with each other.  This reception went off with the dancing and I couldn’t have had more fun with all the funk and blues.  Their reception and ceremony was held at The Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center in Oakland, CA and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  Wishing these two much love and babies in their future.

Bat Mitzvah at Congregation Emanu-El – San Francisco and party at Dogpatch Wineworks. Nola.

Awe the Bat Mitzvah ….They make me wish I was Jewish ✡️ so I could have one for my son. It might be the most amazing thing ever for a kid to celebrate the bridge between childhood and adulthood. The service is very beautiful as each child talks about a moral or social issue they would like to focus on and then the party, well, it’s off the hook with everyone celebrating! 🎉🎉 In this particular occasion it’s gorgeous, Nola, and she had so much fun I lived vicariously her throughout the evening. Her service 🕎 was at Congregation Emanu-El – San Francisco and the party was at Dogpatch Wineworks. Twas a great night for sure.

 

 

 

Olori Luxury African Leather Handbags Fashion and product Photography in San Francisco, CA

When you get a super crew like this one your bound to have a good time!  Everyone brought their A game a few days before Christmas for this shoot and fashion inspires me to be the absolute best fashion photographer in San Francisco.  And Why not?  I would want the best product photography to promote my dreams in commerce.  Great Product photography in San Francisco is everything when you are marketing your products.  Whether you are selling online or have a foot traffic store you still have to show what you are selling in an enticing way that’s relevant and provocative.  Product photography in a lifestyle atmosphere is what the market is responding to when it comes to the fashion and product photography world.  Which is so much more fun than being stuck in a studio.  We tromped all over Hayes Valley in San Francisco and the results are in the pudding as they say.  Thank you Tomedai for trusting me with your  beautiful Orlori handbag line! Here’s a link to her incredible bags you can purchase online.
