So, after shooting Amy + Sam’s wedding in Napa Valley, I had a day to kill the following day. I decided to take a short bi plane ride over the area to see what I could see. It was a great experience, and I’m so glad I did it. Afterwards, I headed out to a park near Oakland for a little hike in the woods. Then it was off for some food in San Fransisco and a beer at a pub, Sorry, no photos of the eating and drinking. Here are a few photos of my day. Enjoy!
I was so honored that Amy + Sam thought so my much of my work to fly me out to Napa Valley to photograph their big day! This was my first time in Napa, and it was absolutely gorgeous! After getting in my rental car at the San Francisco airport and driving out to Napa, I thought the clock in the car was stuck on 1:04. It wasn’t until I stepped out of the car for the first time that I realized that 104 was the temperature! Heatwave! This, however, did not phase either Amy or Sam. They were total troopers, just going with the flow. And speaking of flow, I think the reception flow had been altered as it was just way too hot inside the reception area. After eating, guests all migrated outside by the bar and the pool to cool down! It was more like a really relaxed friends and family get together. Amy and Sam got married at the uber cool Durham Ranch. It’s such a chill spot nestled within wine country, and the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Also, I got to see my friend and awesome photographer, Cliff Brunk, who second shot for me. I had a wonderful experience shooting Amy and Sam’s intimate wedding! Thanks, and congratulations guys!
WOWZERS! What an incredible day! Not only was Christina + James’ wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Crossed Keys Inn, not to mention the amazing weather, including a small but drenching sun shower, and all of their wonderful family and friends, especially Christina’s bridesmaids who were all awesome, but most importantly, Christina + James are just one downright cute couple who are obviously in love! Wait until you see how expressive and fun Christina is, you will fall in love too! Seriously guys, thank you SO much for having me photograph your wedding, it was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Congratulations!
I just love tropical locations for weddings. Well, just in general really, I love tropical locations! So, I was super duper excited when Anna and Eugene contacted me about their destination wedding in Cancun Mexico. It was my first time in Cancun, and it did not disappoint! PLUS, I got to work with the amazingly talented Miss Citlalli Rico! I think what I love most about destination weddings is that only the closest people to the couple make the trek out to help them celebrate. And because of that, I find them to be filled with more emotion. Anna and Eugene had a wonderful day surrounded by family and close friends. It was my absolute pleasure and honor to have documented their day! I also loved photographing the Mayan Dance that was performed during the reception. It was so interesting! I also enjoyed grabbing a few extra shots of Anna and Eugene the day after the wedding. Many thanks to Ro, who assisted me! Congratulations Anna and Eugene!
I had a blast photographing Allison + Ira’s wedding! Although it rained all day, and kept us indoors, it didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the day one bit. While I was with Allison in the morning I remember her on the phone with someone, and she had such a placid and calm demeanor about her. When she hung up the phone, she plainly stated that Ira’s boutonniere had been in a car accident. This struck me as quite funny. No one was hurt, but the car containing Ira’s boutonniere was involved in an accident and would be delayed. Despite the rain, it turned out to be a wonderful wedding with lots of emotion and laughs along the way. Thanks for having me along guys, and congratulations!
Heidi + George had a sort of low key and laid back wedding, well, except for the “exploding” cake that is! It was a wonderful day spent with friends and family. And of course, when there are kids at weddings, I will most likely photograph them! Heidi and George’s wedding was no exception. I had a great time hanging out with these two at the Pleasantdale Chateau here in New Jersey. Congratulations guys!
Julie + Ran had themselves a wonderful wedding day surrounded by tons of family and friends! And even though the weather didn’t exactly cooperate, it didn’t put a damper on the day. Ba-dum-bump! We did their first looks outside, and then one quick shot after that, and the skies opened up. So, I naturally headed for the parking garage to see what I could come up with. That’s one thing about being a wedding photographer is that you have to be flexible at the drop of a hat, or in this case a rain drop. I had a great time documenting the entire day. Congratulations Julie and Ran!
