Wedding Photographer at Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Castello di Amorosa in Sonoma Napa Wedding Photographer. Jessica and Jake.

Jessica and Jake were too cute.  They had a very intimate ceremony at Calistoga Ranch and then we went on an excursion to Castello di Amorosa in Napa Wine Country and took some more photos.  We had such a fun time sipping champagne and snapping photos.  I mean, come on….it’s wine country so when in Rome….Wish these two a lifetime of more adventures together.

San Francisco Wedding Photographer. Petaluma Photographer. Chrissy Fields, San Francisco. Murali and Prista.

So sometimes the internet can work in mysterious ways and Murali and Prista found my work online from Singapore and wanted to do an engagement session while they were in San Francisco.  We had a blast together and I hope they are snuggled as two bugs in a rug back in Singapore.  xoxo

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 Meadowood in Napa Valley. Rehearsal dinner for Kristina and Matthew.

Kristina and Matthew thought that Meadowood in Napa Valley would be perfect for hosting their all white rehearsal dinner party complete with golf on the putting green.  It was such a delightful day reminiscent of a scene out of The Great Gatsby as everyone was exquisitely dressed in their perfect white wardrobe.  Weddings or rehearsal dinners at Meadowood are reign supreme as the grounds are just to die for.

Wedding Photographer at Villagio and Vintage Estates in Napa Valley. Liz and Aaron.

Liz and Aaron live in Louisiana but love the wine country so they decided to have their wedding at The Villagio in Yountville which is in the heart of Napa Valley. I love the wedding photo of them in front of the fountain with the magic hour  back lighting them.  Gorgeous!  And her wedding dress! We had so much taking their wedding couple portraits around the Villagio and Vintage Estates as they were game for anything.  Her best friend and maid of honor came with and snuck in some of the wedding photos.  It was a decadent wedding styled by A Saavy Event and we got some beautiful artistic wedding photos using mostly natural light and shot in true photojournalistic style.  Love being the wedding photographer at this amazing venue.  Wish Liz and Aaron the absolute best!  xoxo

Wedding Photographer Napa Valley at Private Estate in wine country. Christina and Bradley.

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 BR Cohn Winery in Glen Ellen, CA, Sonoma County. Holly and Shane.

BR Cohn Winery Weddings are so stunning with all it’s live oak trees brimming with verdant moss.  I love the beauty of vineyards set close to these gigantic trees as it makes for a perfect ceremony spot for your wedding.  After the couple had a cocktail hour at BR Cohn Winery, they then hopped over to St. Francis Winery for dinner and wine tasting.  What’s a wedding in Sonoma and Napa Valley without a wine tasting right? I love being a wedding photographer at all these gorgeous vineyards as I get to play with light and use all these beautiful vines as backdrops in their wedding photos.  Wishing Holly and Shane lots more wine tastings and happiness in their future!

Wedding photographer at City Hall in San Francisco in Bay Area. Veronika and Oleg.

This creative couple had a City Hall Wedding in San Francisco.  The bride contacted me from Moscow, Russia with some very editorial ideas for her wedding — she even brought rabbit masks! The dinner reception took place on the elegant Napa Valley Wine Train. Talk about an incredible backdrop for your wedding photography photos!  It looked like it was right out of a movie!

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!
