Kunde in Summer

What can we say that could add to the majesty of Kunde Winery? In short, it is a dream. Cody and Brad were classic and in love, our favorite combination. On the top of a hill in a grove of oak trees surrounded by grapes, they danced the night away.

Backyard June Wedding

We are such a sucker for backyard weddings! Angela and Matt were the perfect picture of smitten lovers in love. We did a first look with them on the front porch, and strolled around with champagne as we snapped candids of the bridal party hanging out and enjoying each other. The light could not have been better for their sunset portraits. We used Portra 800 and shot the whole reception on film. We love the realistic color that film gives to skin tones.

Chateau St. Jean Wedding

Calling the weather a warm afternoon would be the understatement of the year. At 112 degrees during the peak of any other day might have been unbearable, but there is always extra magic floating around when it comes to love and weddings. They cuddled and laughed during their portraits like a pro, and Liz’s hair somehow remained perfect throughout the whole day- see for yourself! Liz and Craig wanted a Great Gatsby feel to their wedding, and we think they pulled it off with flying colors! Sunset time in Kenwood can be somewhat difficult because of the hills towards the coast, but I was lucky enough to steal them away for a short sunset session right before the first dance.

Trentadue in the Summer.

Shooting in wineries is always a joy. Posing and strolling among the grapes and lush greenery stays being a winning combo for us. A color palette of sage, peach, blush, with pops of magenta and raspberry colored our day as we focused in on what we do best: turning beautiful moments into lasting memories.
