Nghi + Tin – Casa Real

Lately I’ve been trying my hand at film, which has been an absolutely amazing adventure! I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to shoot N+T at the beautiful Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. I loved strolling in the vineyard with these two, the lighting was just perfect.  I also adored their first dance under the beautifully dramatic chandelier!!

Casa Real


Vania + Jason – Gloria Ferrer Winery

Vania and Jason got married on 7/11 at Gloria Ferrer Vineyard and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, which doesn’t happen very often-but when it does it looks great on an album. We did a few bridal party pictures and then  headed to the ceremony site under a beautiful canopy with the exquisite Sonoma valley as a background. Dinner was served in the wine cave and the night ended with a fabulous sparkler exit.

Linh + Michael – Viansa Winery, Sonoma

We met Linh and Michael at Viansa Vinery in Sonoma on a glorious June day. They decided to do a first look and I’m thrilled they did because it gave us an extra hour to take portraits of them around the property. The ceremony on was on the back lawn and cocktail hour over looked the valley. We ended the evening with dinner catered by my most favorite caterer, Sage.
