Wedding Photography at Deer Park Villa, Fairfax in Marin County. Leah and Matthew.

Wow.  What a beautiful day this was.  I mean the love between Leah and Matthew is off the chart and their devotion to their four children is even more mind staggering.  The children were a part of every celebration and they loved it –even with a newborn attached to them most of the evening.  The venue, Deer Park Villa in Fairfax which is in the heart of Marin County near Samuel P. Taylor National Park is awe inspiring.  The redwoods tower above you giving you a peek at the star filled sky.  Such an emotional and authentic ceremony and reception gave me pause and event planner, Chiara DeJoy, made sure everything was just exquisite! I wish these two the absolute best life has to offer.

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 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 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 Landmarks Art and Garden Center in Belvedere/Tiburon, Marin. Theresa and Marc

Theresa and Marc chose the The Landmarks Art and Garden Center which has the most exquisite views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. And they chose, Meren, from A Savvy Event whom is the most inpeccable wedding planner and she never fails to deliver anything less than perfection on your wedding day.  I love being a wedding photographer when A Savvy Event team member is one board as the design details are amazing.  Marc is the most phenomenal chef and used to own the iconic restaurant AQ in San Francisco where they would change the theme and menu according to the season.  He had his staff make the five course meal that was served to thier wedding guests and the food was out of this world.  Hope their life together will always be a grand epicurean adventure as this wedding was.  xoxo

Wedding Photographer at Sonoma Renaissance Lodge and Gundlach Bundschu Winery in Sonoma County. Meghan and Jake.

Meghan and her bridal party got ready at the always accomodating Sonoma Renaissance Lodge and had her outdoor wedding ceremony at the very cool and kitsch Gundlach Bundschu Winery in Sonoma County where their reception was also al fresco under the napa valley stars.  Gorgeous!  And look at their wedding photos as Jake drives a green motorcycle so the groom’s cake was designed to be it’s replica.  And when the newly married couple were announced as husband and wife to dinner at the reception they arrived on the green motorcyle!  Very dashing.  Love being a wedding photographer to this awesome and adventurous couple. Such a treat to shoot at Gunbun Winery too as I love to go to their summer concerts and sit in the big barn or on a blanket in the vineyard listening to their amazing music acts.  I also loved shooting the couple’s wedding portraits in the wine cave with tall the fabulous light and wine barrels.  Such a cool wedding and hope they have this fun for the rest of their lives together.  xoxo

Wedding Photographer at Cornerstone Winery in Sonoma, CA in wine Country. Selena and Ian.

Cornerstone Winery in Sonoma in the heart of wine country is the most artistic and creative winery you have ever seen and just perfect for your wine country wedding.  It has everything you want.  A barn, a tent, vineyards, art, pathways adorned with Sunset Magazine planted gardens, a pond, and twinkly lights everywhere.  I love being a wedding photographer at Cornerstone Winery Sonoma because there are so many art and garden sculptures for you wedding couple portrait photography I can’t even begin to get to all of them.  It’s like every time I go there’s something new and incredible.  Ian and Selena are both cyclists so they had a bicycle them throughout their wedding details.  They even gave their guests a metal bike keychain with their wedding date on it. So beautiful and fun and I hope both Selena and Ian both ride out their days together into the sunset. xoxo

Napa Valley Wine Country weddings are what dreams are made of and when you have Traci Steuteville of Napa Valley Celebrations as your wedding planner that dream will reach farther than any expectation you could have.  She plans beyond gorgeous weddings and I love working with her as a wedding photographer in Napa or Sonoma at private estates.  I wish Christina and Bradley the absolute best for years to come. xoxo

Wedding photographer at Quarry Hill Botanical Garden in Sonoma and The Gaige House in Glen Ellen. Becky and Pete.

Pete and Becky love to steal away to Sonoma County from the bustle of San Francisco where they live.  They’re actually building a second home close to Quarry Hill Botanical Garden in Sonoma where they decided their wedding would be.  And with the help of the most talented event planner, Chris Andrews of Andretti Winery  their wedding was beyond words.  Becky got ready at The Gaige House in Glen Ellen and took a lot of her bridal portraits there.  It’s a gorgeous venue for a smaller wedding. Their rehearsal dinner was under the live oak trees at Kunde Winery in Napa Valley and the views are unbelievable.  Wish them happiness for years to come!
