{Danielle + Torrey} Intimate Wedding . Calistoga

Danielle & Torrey had everything they needed for the perfect little wedding- close family, gorgeous location & a whole lotta love!  It was a special afternoon spent enjoying each other and the gorgeous surroundings. I love that during one shoot we could enjoy an orange orchard, redwood forest, meadow & grapevines!  During our portraits they were even greeted by two beautiful horses. Can’t get much better!

From an engagement that began with David riding up on a white stallion in full knight’s gear to a wedding laden with elegant fanfare, this was a wedding was a fairy tale!  Stephanie of A Dream Wedding went all out with this couple, planning a weekend that their guests would never forget.

Special thanks to Megan Clouse for second shooting this incredible day with me!

{rebecca + mike} timber cove . sonoma coast

This romantic wedding was held at the  elegantly rustic Timber Cove Inn, near  Jenner on the majestic Sonoma Coast. Mike, a biologist & Rebecca, an artist- both lovers of all natural things & madly in love with each other. Ever since my first conversation with Rebecca, I was looking forward to this intimate coastal wedding. She was so obviously smitten with her love & so excited about all of the thoughtful details that they put into the day. It was a delight to photograph their love on this joyful day!

{happy anniversary } portrait session . napa valley

This beautiful couple celebrated their one year anniversary last weekend at Calistoga Ranch. We enjoyed one of those amazing spring evenings exploring the beauty of Napa Valley. It is such a pleasure for me to turn clients into friends and document their joyous celebrations. These two not only know how to have fun & enjoy the love the share, but they are also incredibly generous… such a pleasure to know them.

I am so pleased to be sharing these images with you! Emily and I attended Cal Poly together and I was thrilled when she shared that she had found true love in Andrew. Their wedding was simple with a beautiful backdrop surrounded by friends and family that traveled afar to share the day. They exchanged rings under a giant oak tree at Stacked Stone Cellars and I couldn’t be happier for them!
