Sebastopol Wedding Photographer at Merry Edwards Winery. Sybil and Adele.

Wow!  So much love and kindness were abound this day.  Sybil and Adele have been together for thirteen years so it’s about time this beautiful couple made it official. They decided upon Merry Edwards Winery in Sebastopol for their nuptials and flew all the way from Atlanta, Georgia. Both of their mothers and sister’s were in attendance and when Adele walked down the aisle there wasn’t a dry eye anywhere.   She was flooded with emotion as well.  Their friend and wedding planner, The incredible Peter of Leave it to Peter made sure everything was the best for his long time friends.  And when I say he was incredible….really there are no words for how far his imagination and his unparalleled energy goes!  The cake by Costeaux in Healdsburg was assembled with a motorcycle cake topping because when Adele and Sybil first met they would ride together. It was really the perfect day and everyone was so filled with gratitude and love.  I am honored to have been the wedding photographer at this glorious union between Adele and Sybil. Many blessings!

Sonoma Depot Hotel Wedding Photographer. Sonoma, CA. Carol and Rob.

Carol and Rob are from my hometown of Petaluma, CA and were taken aback by the charm and quaintness that The Sonoma Depot Hotel has for their wedding venue.  It’s french joie de vivre sparkles through and everyone feels like they have been transported to France for the day.  And the staff!!  They really couldn’t be kinder or more accomodating. Their services and reception were just lovely and we had the best time taking their couple photographs in field of grain and on the historic Sonoma County train.  Hoping these two have the most wonderful lives together.

Wedding Photographer Beltrane Ranch in Glen Ellen in Sonoma. Nicole and Martin.

Reviews describe Beltrane Ranch as downright idyllic, the best bed and breakfast in wine country and The LA Times says, “I never could have dreamed up a more bucolic place.”  Now how’s that as an introduction.  So no wonder Nicole and Martin jumped at the chance to have their wine country wedding at Beltrane Ranch.  It’s truly perfect for your wedding portrait photos and there area so many magical haunts around the property to explore so your wedding photography tells “your” story. Nicole and Martin had an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends and everyone couldn’t have had a more enjoyable time.  Bucolic to say the least.

Wedding Photographer at The Depot Hotel in Sonoma with The Girl and Fig Catering. Sophie and Jeremy.

Loved the intimacy of Sophie and Jeremy’s wedding at The Depot Hotel in downtown Sonoma.  It has the most vintage vibe and it’s perfect for smaller weddings plus it’s right across the road from the park with so many great backdrops for your wedding portrait shots such as this old train.  It was a sweet and emotional wedding and everyone had so much fun dining al fresco with food from The Girl and the Fig which is out of this world delicious.  Hope Sophie and Jeremy continue to have such wonderful family and friends around them for the rest of their lives.

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kelly and Ballan.

Look at the divine art deco detail the Julia Morgan Ballroom has and how perfectly beautiful does it look in Kelly and Ballan’s San Francisco wedding photography.  The two are very classic in their taste and values.  They wanted a venue that would reflect their love of tradition and family and being that The Julia Morgan Ballroom is in the heart of downtown San Francisco and it’s such a stately building they knew they found the perfect venue for their wedding.  Both of these two waited for a long time to get married as they hadn’t met until later in life so this wedding was extra special as everyone was so happy for them.  I love being a wedding photographer at San Francisco venues like this and especially when the couple is so grateful to have found one there “person” to spend the rest of their days with.  Beautiful.

Wedding photographe at Mountain Home Inn in Mill Valley, Marin County. Annie and Jason.

Annie and Jason are so adorable and both have a thing for Elvis and the Rockabilly scene so what’s a wedding without Elvis cuff links and blue suedo shoes.  They chose the Mountain Home Innin Mill Valley at the top of Mount Tamalpais in Marin County for the wedding venue. It has sweeping views of the entire bay and as a Marin wedding photographer it doesn’t get better for views and a backdrop for their wedding photography.  Jason is an avid landscape photographer so the views were important to him to document in his wedding photos.  Mission accomplished! Wish these two the absolute best that life and Elvis in the after life has to offer!

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!
