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 in Napa Valley, Wine Country. Tiffany and Mark.

A beautiful Napa wine country destination wedding at a private winery estate. (Check out the bride’s purple kicks!) Gorgeous sweeping views of Napa valley is a wedding photographer’s dream.  I loved the details of this couples wedding and I incorporated it in an artistic way into their wedding photography.  Wish Tiffany and Mark so much happiness!

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!

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!
