Petaluma Marriage Proposal, engagement and wedding photographer. Sonoma County Proposal. Matthew and Jackie.

Such a fantastic morning as I was lucky enough to hide and be a “spy”  my other secret favorite profession.  Matthew called to say he was going to propose to his longterm (that’s 9 years) , Jackie, at Gravity Hill above Petaluma in Penngrove.  So he sent me a pin and I met him on the top of the hill and there is literally nowhere to hide.  So I get out of the car which my camera and my huge 200 mm lens and ask, “Do you know what valley that is?  I was hired by a real estate company to take a photo of a certain valley.”  Then, I introduced myself to make sure indeed, This was Matthew and Jackie.  It most certainly was.  So….I sauntered up the hill and pretended to take photos of the landscapes when Matthew bent down on one knee and popped the question.  Of course she said yes….Look at those in love, happy faces.  Congratulations Matthew and Jackie!

Wedding photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma County. Under the Stars in the Country. Gianna and Blaine.

Now this wedding was so emotionally charged I lost it a couple times myself during the toasts.  As you can see by their wedding photos, there isn’t a dry eye during the speeches.  I loved this couple as they are practically like family to me and the live oak trees make such a gorgeous backdrop in these editorial style wedding photographs. I photographed most of the wedding in true photo journalism style except for the couple portraits where I photographed them in a more fashion forward style.  Fantastic Couple and a huge Congrats to Gianna and Blaine whom had their wedding in my home town of Petaluma, CA!
