Wedding Photographer at Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa Valley, CA. Briana and Matthias

A lovely wine country wedding ceremony and reception at the historic Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa, CA. Briana and Matthias know how to pick a location.  This little chapel in Napa Valley is divine for wedding photography.  It’s nestled into the vineyards on top of a hill and has European architecture to make your wedding images have a vintage antiquity to them.  The gardens are so beautiful as well to take your formal wedding photographs or the couple portraits.  Beautiful magic hour light comes in around sunset highlighting all the traditions so your wedding images reflect the magic of your wedding ceremony and reception.  I love taking artistic photos on these grounds and the twinkle lights add the ambiance.  Such a beautiful day for Brian and Matthias to tie the knot.  Lucky me to get to be their wedding photographer in Napa Valley, no less!

 

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.)

 

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!
