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!

I was so excited for Amy and Rob’s SF engagement session and now I couldn’t be more excited for their wine country wedding! This international couple both have successful careers and have spanned the world in their travel over the years together. I love that we chose the Bay Area (Amy’s hometown) as the backdrop for their session. Rob hails from England and has that witty, goofy sense of humor that I absolutely love. Together, these two are a beautiful balance. On top of the awesome vibe this couple brought, we got a spectacular evening in the city. Cheers to these two!

I am so excited to finally share this gorgeous Meadowood wedding! I don’t think it would be a secret that photographing a wedding at this gorgeous property was certainly on my photography bucket-list. And I am so honored that Sarah and Andrew were the couple to have brought me to this spot. From the beginning, Sarah felt like a friend. She is so warm, kind and bubbly. I knew on their wedding day she would bring the same energy. Andrew is calm and relaxed. But he certainly breaks out of his shell and you can see his witty, fun personality! This wedding was just a beautiful as I imagined it would be. Sarah chose a palette of whites and greens to compliment the lush, green surroundings. It was truly magical to see everything come together. Cheers to this beautiful couple and their families!
