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 Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley. Alexandra and Jude.

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 at Villagio and Vintage Estates in Yountville, Napa Valley. Kristy and Kevin.

This lovely couple had their ceremony and reception at Villagio and Vintage Estates in Yountville in Napa Valley, the heart of wine country.  To say there is the most beautiful scenery for your wedding photography would be an understatement.  Look at those ivy covered walls framing the door perfectly for your wedding couple portraiture!  The vineyards soaked in magical hour sun are also the iconic napa valley wedding images that are always so picture perfect.  Look at Kristy’s wedding bouquet she made from broaches she’s collected from family members.  I love the uniqueness of it!  I used the faded murals as a backdrop for her bridal party portrait and her wedding portrait! I loved being the wedding photographer at Viansa as the grounds are so verdant with so many blooms I can use them for the wedding ring still life images or just frame the couple with. Such a fantastic wedding!  Wishing Kristy and Kevin the most magical lives together!

Wedding Photographer at Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Karen and Trevor

This New Jersey couple had their wine country wedding ceremony and reception at the Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg. This spot is simply, undeniably lovely, and this couple is too! They flew all their guests in from the East Coast to join them. There are so many beautiful rustic backgrounds for wedding photography.  I love taking couple wedding photography on the train tracks and at the rustic barn.  Also the Italian fountain is a beautiful location to take your wedding portraits at as well.  There are so many  to choose from.  Of course there is always the vineyards to take your couple wedding portraiture in at sunset to get that iconic wine county wedding photograph!  Love this cute couple and wish them the best!  Cheers!

 

 

Wedding Photographer at the Villagio Vintage Estates. Yountville and Napa, CA. Ashley and Brian

It’s really hard to beat the Villagio Vintage Estates in Yountville near Napa Valley for a spectacular wine country wedding. You can get the iconic wine county wedding photography as there is a gorgeous winery near these cool train tracks and at The Villagio there are wonderful backdrops for your wedding images too. I love photographing couples under the ivy pergola as it frames them and the wedding bridal party images look great with the faded murals as their backdrops.  I took most of these in a photojournalistic style but some I had posed into a more editorial and artistic setting.  Mostly thought I used natural light even for the toast under the moonlit skies with the twinkle lights.  Such a gorgeous couple.  Just look at the image of them getting rose petals tossed on to them after they said their I Do’s during their wedding ceremony.  It was a glorious day had by all!  Congratulations and best wishes for a wonderful life together!

 

 

Wedding Photographer at Viansa Winery in Sonoma and Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa Valley. Abigail and Ian.

Abigail & Ian came up north from Los Angeles to celebrate their special day at Mt. La Salle Chapel in Napa. We had so much fun with their wedding photography creating beautiful artistic wedding photos in the gardens.  We posed the bridal party to look like a Vanity Fair Cover Shoot by Annie Leibovitz.  Their wedding reception was at Viansa Winery in Sonoma where we had the most majestic views of Sonoma Valley with wine county in it’s magic hour sunset splendor!  Taking their wedding portrait photos in the vineyard is the reason why they came to the Sonoma and Napa Valley region to get married so it was very important we didn’t miss the opportunity to get it highlighted by the son before it dipped behind the hills.  The reception at Viansa was so fun and the wedding couple did the traditional money dance and Wonder Bread 5 rocked the house!  Love this couple so much as they couldn’t have been more fun and adventurous!

Wedding Photographer at Trentadue Winery in Healdsburg, Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Lindsey and Scott

Lindsey and Scott had an incredibly romantic wedding and reception at Trentadue Winery in the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Look at their wedding photography!  We had so much fun with the full moon and sunset wedding photos.  I love the silhouette wedding photo of them behind their parasol right at magic hour!  Gorgeous!  Then, we decided to put the flower girls and ring bearers under her wedding veil for this iconic wedding photo.  I love how cute it turned out!  Such a fun couple and I was lucky enough to be their wedding photographer!  Gorgeous couple and Trentadue Winery had the most epic spots to take your couple wedding shots!  They have a rustic bar, train tracks and vineyards to get your wedding images taken in.  Such a spectacular day for Lindsey and Scott and I hope their journey together is always this breathtaking!

Wedding photographer at Andretti Winery. Napa Valley Wedding. Erin and Todd.

The Andretti Winery in Napa, CA is like being transported to Italy! This couple had an incredibly beautiful and romantic wedding day. I mean look at the architecure and details they had in their wedding photography.  Not to mention the sun setting over the vineyards during the ceremony.  Just raw beauty at Andretti that I Love getting to be the wedding photographer at this gorgeous venue.  I loved how Todd caught Erin’s veil as it was whisked off her head by a breeze.  They got this!  Wish this couple so much joy in their lives together.

 

Wedding Photographer at Merryvale Winery in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Ebony and Jerome

Ebony and Jerome were married at the Merryvale Winery in St. Helena and talk about a farm table–just look at how decadent that looks with all the candles on it!  I loved the emotion of this couple as it’s showing in their wedding photographs at Merryvale and at the ceremony.

 

Wedding photographer at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg. Sonoma and Napa Valley. Kira and Jeremy.

A truly beautiful wine country wedding at Soda Rock Winery in the Alexander Valley close to Healdsburg.  These wedding images were so dynamic and fun to shoot in the barn with the natural light screaming in from all the cracks and crannies.  Talk about an exquisite rustic backdrop for your wedding photos to be taken.  There were so many emotional photos to take but mostly there was laughter!  Kira’s Dad gave the welcome toast and gave the couple baseball hats to their opposing teams they are fans of.  Then I loved taking the dance photos as Kira just rocked out in true rock star form with Jeremy cheering her on.  You can’t go wrong getting married at Soda Rock Winery with their incredible backdrop of vineyards to take your wedding images and their rustic barn to have your wedding ceremony in. Cheers to Kira and Jeremy!
