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.

Congrats Alexandra and Jude! I loved being a wedding photographer at this fantastic ceremony and reception at Calistoga Ranch complete with bongo drums accompanying the guests from the upper lawn on the lake to the wine cave for dancing. That’s right, a wine cave for dancing. This wedding was so much fun for all — a perfect reflection of Alie and Jude’s fun-loving and warmhearted natures. Jude is from Tortuga and so many of his friends and family flew in from the Caribbean to be there to witness his wedding to beautiful, Alie.  They wanted their wedding photography to reflect the Puerto Rican side of Alli’s family and Jude’s  Tortugan ancestry. I love the wedding photo of the flower girl looking out the window while Alie get’s her hair done. I used natural light and the little girl’s face just beamed sunshine in this artistic wedding photograph. They both live in Miami and brought in her side of the family as well, of course. Both sides equaled each other in their love to party and their love for this beautiful couple. Wishing them much joy and happiness in their future together!

 

 

 

Wedding Photographer Calistoga Ranch – Calistoga, CA in Napa Valley. Lyndall and James

This Star Wars themed wedding was out of this world. What a beautiful, fun, and creative crew! The ceremony and reception took place at the ever-charming Calistoga Ranch. Such a beauty was Lyndall!  I loved taking wedding bridal portraits of her through the window to get nature’s reflection in the natural light images.  I loved framed the couples wedding photography portraits with the natural verdant plants that are everywhere at Calistoga Ranch.  It’s a flora and fauna fantasty land for wedding photographers.  I love wedding photojournalism when the guests are mingling but it’s just as fun for me to stage wedding photos to give them a vogue editorial style to them.  These wedding images will soon be family heirlooms once they are chosen for their wedding album and we want them as beautiful as they can possibly be. But with this gorgeous couple and this spectacular setting how can you go wrong.  you just need to know how to get natural light to do it’s best and highlight them just so lovingly.  Best wishes to these two and sending rays of sunshine in their direction!

Crystal & Tom had their wedding at the awe-inspiring and rustic gem Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Crystals dress was one princesses dream of having their wedding photographs taken in.  It was exceptional as was her decor with hanging votive candles everywhere and blossoms framing her in every wedding image.  Emotions were running high and happy tears were shed as this beautiful couple said their I do’s.  I loved the butterflies she had hanging over their table during the reception.  I loved them and feel their wedding wedding photographs reflected the artistic choices they made for their ambience.  Wish these two the best together!

Calistoga is one of the most beautiful places in the wine country to be married, and Calistoga Ranch takes the cake. If you want rustic wedding images than this is the place for your artistic wedding imagery to take place.  Your wedding photos will have an Ansel Adams look to them or your wedding photos will have the background of a fall Monet painting.  Love the editorial look of this couple in their wedding photos!  So magnificent!
