Tessa and Tyler will be tying the know this November in Sonoma. They flew out from Texas with their moms to do some wedding planning and their engagement session. Tessa put her full trust in me to find some picturesque locations for their portraits. We started in the Sonoma town square, stopped in some vineyards along the road and ended up at the lavender fields of Matanzas Creek Winery. I had been longing to photograph at Matanzas Creek for some time and was just waiting for the right moment. I knew Tessa and Tyler would appreciate the stunning backdrop. I decided to surprise these two with this beautiful spot and it certainly did not disappoint! Both moms were also blown away by the property. We felt like we were in a mixture of California wine country and Provence. It was magical! And can I just say I absolutely love Tessa’s fiery red hair! So excited to see these two again this fall!
