Wedding photographer at Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley. Corrine and Shaun.

Corrine and Shaun were so darn adorable and she even pulled a camera out of the pocket of her wedding dress to take a photo of her guests after she walked up the aisle.  Definitely a stellar moment.  Then during the reception Shaun surprised Corrine by flying out one of her favorite musicians who serenaded her with a song.  Tears.  Such beautiful tears.  All this took place in the wine cave at The iconic Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley. An extraordinary night with a beautiful couple.  I hope they continue to come back to Calistoga ranch for post wedding celebrations in years to come.  Such fun being a wedding photographer at events such as these in Napa Valley.

Wedding Photographer at Cornerstone Winery in Sonoma, CA in wine Country. Selena and Ian.

Cornerstone Winery in Sonoma in the heart of wine country is the most artistic and creative winery you have ever seen and just perfect for your wine country wedding.  It has everything you want.  A barn, a tent, vineyards, art, pathways adorned with Sunset Magazine planted gardens, a pond, and twinkly lights everywhere.  I love being a wedding photographer at Cornerstone Winery Sonoma because there are so many art and garden sculptures for you wedding couple portrait photography I can’t even begin to get to all of them.  It’s like every time I go there’s something new and incredible.  Ian and Selena are both cyclists so they had a bicycle them throughout their wedding details.  They even gave their guests a metal bike keychain with their wedding date on it. So beautiful and fun and I hope both Selena and Ian both ride out their days together into the sunset. xoxo

Wedding Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena. Napa Valley, CA. Sarah and Nick.

I am in love with being a wedding photographer at The Culinary Institute of America as it is not only an exquisite wedding venue architecturally but the food is divine of course!  The light in these artistic wedding photos I took of Sarah and Nick is gorgeous and I loved capturing their couple wedding portrait photos in the vineyards and at their hotel, The Harvest Inn, in St. Helena beforehand. It was the most gorgeous wedding and Nick is a dress designer and he custom made Sarah’s dress!  At the wedding reception there was a beautiful video montage of him making her dress so it was so touching to see all the details he put into it.  Love this couple and hoping more creative endeavors in their future.

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 at Flora Springs Winery in Sonoma Valley Wine Country. Leigh-Allyn and Keith.

Leigh-Allyn and Keith celebrated their stunning vow renewal at Flora Springs Winery in the Sonoma wine country. What an absolutely lovely day and their wedding photography reflects the true bounty of Napa and Sonoma Valley.

Does the beautiful woman in these photographs look familiar? Leigh-Allyn Baker is an American actress and voice artist with recurring roles on Charmed and Will & Grace, and a starring role as the matriarch Amy Duncan on the Disney Channel sitcom Good Luck Charlie.

They both are so radiant and kind and their love for one another is so beautiful.  They had their son as the ring bearer and the ceremony I took artistic wedding photographs of their boy getting rose petals all over the place.  The light in Sonoma Valley is so perfect for wedding photography and I used mostly natural light to capture this couple’s vows during their wedding ceremony and their al fresco reception under the grape vine pergola.  Toasts were very emotional as all the wedding guests were very close to the bride and groom and they were celebrating their time together so far.  I love this idea and hope this couple so much love in the future!
