Katie and Zach are some of the most vivacious, kind and spirited people! I love their smiles and how bubbly and happy they were on their wedding day. I appreciate Katie and Zach’s honesty and vulnerability not only with each other, but with me as well. I believe it is this that made our working relationship so successful. I truly cherish the time I got to spend with this couple (and their awesome family and friends!).

Katie and Zach planned a lovely summer wedding at Ramekins Cooking School in downtown Sonoma. I have always loved this venue. There is a rustic, European charm about this place that is unlike any other venue I have visited. Cheers to this awesome couple!

Verity and Nic chose the gorgeous Sonoma Valley as the backdrop for their intimate wedding. Both from England (as well as many of their family and friends), these two invited a small group of the most important people in their lives to celebrate wine country style! Ok, I may have made up “wine country style” but I truly think it fits in this scenario! Wine country style to me means a day of food, wine and gorgeous sunsets – pretty much exactly what we got on Verity and Nic’s day. This sweet couple was so laid back and genuine as were their families and friends. I so appreciated their attitudes about their day and their full trust in the team of vendors chosen. Cheers!

Ashley and Taylor have an undeniable love. It truly hits you right in the heart when these two look at each other. Both are energetic, young professionals (and college sweethearts!) that are making the perfect life for themselves. I immediately connected with Ashley during our first phone call and even though we had never met, we actually both grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same church! I am always amazed at how small the world truly is. Ashley had seen a wedding I had shot at her venue of a mutual friend a few years earlier and loved the photos! I loved how confident and trusting she was in hiring me; it made me so excited for their day. I got to meet Taylor a few months before the wedding on a rainy spring morning in Yountville. His charisma shows from the moment you meet him. He is so friendly and outgoing.

Ashley and Taylor’s wedding was on a beautiful summer afternoon in July. They chose to forgo a First Look and I am so happy they made that decision! No one could keep from shedding tears when Taylor saw his bride for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Even Taylor’s brothers and dad were overcome with emotion. Taylor warned me he would probably lose it when he saw her and he was pretty spot on! I always encourage my couples to not hide their emotions during their ceremony. It is so easy to get nervous or want to hold back the tears for the photos, but this is a once in a lifetime moment and it should be celebrated! Those raw emotions are what make such memorable moments to look back on. The ceremony was so heartfelt and beautiful. Ashley and Taylor exchanged personal vows and at the first kiss, Ashley’s dad released white doves. It was amazing! So happy to have captured this very special day for this sweet couple. Cheers!
