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 Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg, CA. Sonoma County. Ramey and Erik.

What can I say about Ramey and Eric?  To say Ramey is enthusiastic would be such an understatement as she breathes in emotional experiences and her love for her family and friends is boundless.  I was their engagement photographer in San Francisco as well as their wedding photographer and she had so many ideas to implement we were all just so excited to be a part of the ride. We shot their engagement photographs at Treasure island and on a pier at the wharf with the city skyline lit up at night as the backdrop.  Their wedding was off the hook too at Trentadue Winery outside Healdsburg, CA and Ramey’s mom was the caterer so the food never stopped and it was incredible.  I love these two so much and hope them a million more years of happy living together.

Wedding photographer at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, Marin County. Stacey and Matt.

The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA, is a magical place for a wedding. Stacey and Matt made it even more magical with sparklers illuminating the air as they strolled off together into their future…I love wedding photography with sparklers!  And the gardens at MAGC are spectacular.  I particularly love the wedding couple shot of them under the massive live oak tree.  And anytime you can blow out twinkle light in an artistic way with beautiful bokeh you should!  Wedding photographs look so artistic and beautiful that way!  I like to shoot my aperture at 1.8 to make the depth of field very slim to none to give that Monet art feel in the background.  Love being a wedding photographer in Marin and wish Stacey and Matt the best life together.  BTW, Matt is quite the talented photographer himself.  I was impressed!

 

 

 

Wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco. Engagement session in Golden Gate Park. Monica and Frank.

As a wedding  and engagement photographer in San Francisco I find this location to be so unparalleled in it’s beauty!   The light that pours through the trees and the massive live oak trees dripping in moss is utterly spectacular.  This couple’s scenic and romantic engagement in Golden Gate Park and on a trail overlooking glorious Baker Beach as a bay area wedding and engagement photographer made me thrilled beyond words to snap away and create artistic and photojournalistic moments for them.  Two words.   Pure happiness!

Wedding photographer in San Francisco Bay Area. Allison and Gere.

This wedding was so gorgeous! It was held at a private club in San Francisco — a club so private that I am not allowed to disclose its name here! This was the most spectacular wedding to be the photographer on.  Gorgeous details and the venue was amazing.  Loved all the gorgeous wedding photography images of Allison and Gere walking around downtown San Francisco and her veil flew straight up.  Couldn’t have been more perfect if it was staged.  Here’s to much love and happiness for this divine couple!  xoxo

 

Wedding proposal Photographer at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Arlene & Carlos.

Chris proposed to Arlene at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena. This sweet couple is from Miami, and their friends hired me as a surprise wedding proposal photographer. Every moment of this day was full of emotion. I cried! so hard I couldn’t barely see through the lens as I was photographing Arlene say I do!  It was the most gorgeous day and I can’t wait for the awesome couple’s wedding!

 

Wedding photographer at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, Marin County. Anna and Chris.

I love being a wedding photographer at The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA in Marin County!   The rose gardens were gorgeous and the perfect setting for a wedding portrait of the couple kissing.  For the bride’s portrait Anna wanted to have some gold glitter in her photos so she blew away some gold dust and we got the sparkly wedding photos she wanted.  Such a great couple and I wish them the best!  xoxo

Wedding photographer at Solage Auberge Resort, Napa Valley in wine country. Andie and Lee.

Andie and Lee had an absolutely lovely wedding ceremony and reception at the Solage Auberge Resort in Napa Valley. (And check out her incredible something-blue shoes!)  As a wedding photographer in Napa I love photograhing at Solage Auberge because the grounds are spectacular for your wedding photography.  Whether I am blowing out the bokeh in the floral and fauna to get gorgeous natural light and artistic wedding photos or am using light inside to highlight their incredible art to use as a background….it’s all so amazing! Wishing Andie and Lee the most beautiful life together filled with more time at this gorgeous resort!

Wedding photographer at Villagio Vintage Estates and Mont La Salle in Napa Valley. Ashley & Dave.

Ashley and Dave had their wine country wedding ceremony at the historic Mount La Salle Chapel — a treasure in and of itself — and their reception was at The Villagio in Yountville, Napa Valley. It was lovely and an honor to be their wedding photographer in the gorgeous Napa Valley.  Mont La Salle is such a lovely place to have your wedding ceremony as the gardens are divine and the chapel is so quaint and has a feeling of antiquity about it.

Some context for these photos: Dave is a huge giants fan so Ashley surprised him with a giants groom cake. Also, Ashley loves cheese so they had a port and cheese bar that didn’t stop. In other words, they did this thing right! Wish Ashley and Dave the absolute best! xoxo

 

Wedding photographer Marin Art and Garden Center, San Anselmo, Marin County. Melissa and Greg.

The Marin Art and Garden Center has the most gorgeous flora and fauna and to have your wedding here is the best idea ever.  Such gorgeous color everywhere that pop in your wedding photography and the light shifts in highlighting all the plants to make sure your wedding images are artistic and gorgeous!  Melissa and Greg were so sweet during their first look together.  I loved how Melissa turned into a little girl and it was really sweet to get to document such a moment on their wedding day!  Much love to both of them.
