Trentadue Winery Wedding Photographer in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Nicole and David.

The Alexander Valley is one of those hidden places not everyone ventures out to but when you do you discover beautiful gems like Trentadue Winery or Francis Ford Coppola Winery.  It reminds me of the remote feeling of being at Joshua Tree where you so far removed from all the craziness of the city.  Trentadue Winery has so much space that everyone just feels free and Nicole and David loved that about this wedding venue.  They wanted their dining experience at their reception to be al fresco so the beautiful extra long farm table feel under the grape vines was absolutely perfect.  Loved the artisty of their wedding and the photography reflects the beautiful natural light streaming through all the verdant vines.  Wishing this couple many more nights under the stars together!

Wedding Photographer at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg, CA. Meredith and Jeff.

Meredith and Jeff saw Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg, CA and absolutely knew this was where they were going to get married.  They loved the vineyards dressed in all the fall colors are diving in their wedding portrait photography and I loved that they were game to go to the Jimtown Store which is the country mart and take couple portraits at the old Country Mart in front of the tattered truck and around that area.  Meredith got ready at Hotel Healdsburg which also has some stunning backdrops for wedding photography such as the yellow ceramic floral wall and the light that streaks across the staircase.  I love being the wedding photographer at Soda Rock Winery because of their divine rustic barn and the way the light creaks in at all levels.  It’s a photographers dream.  Love Meredith and Jeff to pieces and wish them so much delicious times ahead of them!  xoxo

Wedding photographer at Michel Schlumberger Winery in Healdsburg, CA. Diane and David.

Michel Schlumberger Winery in Healdsburg, CA has the most elegant and extraordinary gardens that are perfect for a wine country wedding.  The light that exudes through the trees that the vinyard backs up is so radiant in their wedding photography and I love the succulent garden near the fountain for a photo back drop as well.  The place beams with creativity and the artistic wedding photos are a reflection of how meticulous this wedding venue was designed.  Diane and David met at a tennis club in Marin County and so all their guests threw tennis balls at them when they were introduced for dinner into the wedding reception.  It was quite awesome if I must say so myself and I was super thrilled to document it as their wedding photographer.  Gotta love personalization!  Hope Diane and David have many more fun family gatherings together.

Wedding photographer at Hans Faden Winery in Calistoga, CA- Sonoma County. Jess and Ben.

The Gardens at Hans Faden Winery in Sonoma County or so spectacular your wedding photography will just buzz with flora and fauna.  Not to mention the wine cave where you can dance the night away to candle light.  Jess and Ben both live in Los Angeles but wanted to have their wedding in wine country and when they found Hans Faden Winery they fell in love all over again.  There’s ponds, bridges, gazebos, a barn and caves.  What more could you want for your wedding venue?  Such a sweet couple that wanted to be playful in their couple weddings photography so I had them stick their tongues out at each other by the barn and they were laughing hysterically.  It was a very fun and festive wedding and I was soooo happy to be their wedding photographer….especially since my home town of Petaluma is just a hop, skip and a jump away!

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 Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg. Sonoma and Napa Valley. 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!
