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. It’s times like this that being a wedding photographer in San Francisco has its advantages. 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! Chiara always makes me feel like I’m the best wedding photographer in San Francisco as she is so supportive and on point. What a wonderful night and I love the wedding photo of them under the redwoods with the lights framing them. 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 at Flora Springs Winery in Sonoma Valley Wine Country. Leigh-Allyn and Keith.

Leigh-Allyn and Keith celebrated their stunning vow renewal at Flora Springs Winery in the Sonoma wine country. What an absolutely lovely day and their wedding photography reflects the true bounty of Napa and Sonoma Valley.

Does the beautiful woman in these photographs look familiar? Leigh-Allyn Baker is an American actress and voice artist with recurring roles on Charmed and Will & Grace, and a starring role as the matriarch Amy Duncan on the Disney Channel sitcom Good Luck Charlie.

They both are so radiant and kind and their love for one another is so beautiful.  They had their son as the ring bearer and the ceremony I took artistic wedding photographs of their boy getting rose petals all over the place.  The light in Sonoma Valley is so perfect for wedding photography and I used mostly natural light to capture this couple’s vows during their wedding ceremony and their al fresco reception under the grape vine pergola.  Toasts were very emotional as all the wedding guests were very close to the bride and groom and they were celebrating their time together so far.  I love this idea and hope this couple so much love in the future!

Wedding Photographer at Highlands Estate Winery in Cloverdale in Sonoma. Meghan and Stephan.

Meghan and Stephan were married at Highlands Estate Winery in Cloverdale in the Sonoma wine country. What was so fun about this wedding was they had a corn hole toss, giant jenga, a goofy photo booth, and all around shenanigans. I love it when the happy couple just wants to have FUN! And guess what?  Their wedding photography reflects just that!  I got to photograph the wedding couple in true wedding photojournalism style as they were constantly doing captivating things.  Their special day should be fun, right? I mean why do it if isn’t? My job as a Sonoma and Napa valley wedding photographer is to be the couple’s eyes for the day and to focus in on on emotional moments and framed the wedding images in an artistic and beautiful way. These wedding images will eventually land in a wedding album which will become their family heirloom so let’s make sure to get them as glorious as they should be!  Here’s to lots of crawling babies for this cute couple! (And check out the circle of red shoes! So cool.)
