Justin & Adriana met me at a beautiful state park in Santa Rosa, CA for their engagement session. I met Adriana a few years ago through her cousin, Alexa who was one of my high school senior representatives. Just like Alexa, Adriana is a complete sweetheart and not to mention has a killer wardrobe. We spent the sunset hour walking around the hill tops and chasing light. These two effortlessly loved on one another and praised each other, a true delight to me as a photographer. Unfortunately, Im booked for their wedding day but Im so honored to have documented their love story. This is just the beginning you two.

Justin & Holli’s wedding hit a special spot in my heart. Maybe its the way they looked at each other, how calm, gracious and generous Holli was, or maybe it was because when I envision my own fairytale wedding I think intimate, outdoors and romantic, all three were the theme of Justin and Hollis wedding.

Believe it or not, their wedding day was the first time these two have ever seen or toured their venue, Simi Winery. Lucky for them, Simi Winery provides THE most beautiful backdrop for a wedding, finished head to toe in romantic details from the small waterfall in the background to the the stone inlay found everywhere, all surrounded by tall romantic redwoods.

Holli looked absolutely stunning in her straight line gown, hair pulled halfway back finished with amazing makeup by the very talented Brittney Rhoades, owner of Makeup by Brittney Lee. She was so calm and collected while getting ready but the minute her eyes laid on Justin, tears ran down. When Justin saw Holli his expression was priceless, beaming with pride and love.

Congratulations to you two!

Bret and Sylvia’s wedding hit a soft spot in my heart, probably because their vision was so similar to mine: GREAT good, BEAUTIFUL scenery, and LAUGHING with the ones you love the most. Vine Hill House, in my hometown Sebastopol, CA was a perfect venue to do so, with scenery of the gorgeous O’Connel vineyards, alongside with the Sebastopol heirloom of the Gravenstien apple and many other varieties of apples.

Sylvia was all smiles while getting ready in the guest house at Vine Hill House with her sister, mother and makeup and hair team surrounding her. The love between her and her family not only during her getting ready but through out the entire day was so fulfilling to witness. I think one of my favorite moments of the day was when Sylvia’s sister, Sossy saw her in her dress for the first time, immediate tears of joy rolled in. Sylvia and Bret opted for a first look in the O’connel vineyards, and Im so glad they did.

Encore Event Rentals over did themselves with their absolutely gorgeous lounge furniture. Pair the amazing furniture with amazing food from Grapevine Catering, you have a win win. Sylvia and Bret spend their Sundays cooking and eating together, they wanted this to reflect on their wedding day. A job well done! They had Sylvias Amernian food, gorgeous caprese salad to chicken and waffles. Comfort food done so elegantly. Loved it!

Photographing Nick and Lydia’s engagement session on Nicks fathers sheep ranch over 100 acres in the beautiful, Tomales, CA was a photographers/farm girl/sunset lovers DREAM!

Yes, you read that right. I grew up on a farm. Not any farm animals but an organic apple orchard in Sebastopol. When I was a kid, I hated it- all the chores that come with living on farm land or being part of a family in the agriculture business is hard work. Harder work than most know or will ever understand. My siblings and I AS CHILDREN would wake up at 3-4am on weekends while other kids slept to go help our parents sell apples at the local farmer markets. WE HATED IT. I say this as a total understatement. I think my sister told me once my Dad paid her only $20 for the entire day. Child labor much? On the contrary, those early morning wake up calls, those days other friends of mine got to sleep in from the late night shenanagins , coming home from a 10-12 hour work day as a young kid and teen on the weekends to work even harder to unload that old, falling apart flatbed truck to only reload it to do it all over again the following day gave me the drive and work ethic I have to this day. The same ethic that gave me the drive to become a nurse and pursue a successful photography business.

I moved out when I was an adult, I think right away if I can remember right. It took a while but up until we sold my fathers property I cherish the farm every time I would visit him. The hard work, the constant upkeep, the labor of those who loved it took years of wisdom for me to truly understand the beauty of the farm. Now, 4 years after it has been sold I think of it often, and miss it more than I ever thought possible.

So when I pulled up to Nicks fathers 100+ acre property in Tomales full of sheep (even a baby sheep, yes I nearly died) that sense of appreciation for all the hard work that land and livestock require rushed through me.

Then to top it off, Lydia had created a styled part of their engagement session that included Nick’s old truck, a country picnic set up in the back of it and even the smallest of details that would make any photographers heart do a little happy dance. We shot the first part of their session in the back of Nicks truck, then went to the eucalyptus trees up the road and ended on top of a hill on Nick’s dad property that had a sunset that would take your breath away.

I walked away with a full heart from their engagement session and I cant wait to document their wedding day.

I cant think of a better place than Indian Springs Resort and Spa to take your family pictures!

Sweet Nadya contact me to take her family pictures during their babymoon at the gorgeous Indian Springs Resort and Spa property. She, her husband Barney and their sweet little girl traveled from the hustle and bustle of SF to relax and enjoy the last few months of being a family of three. Nadya enjoyed a massage treatment tailored to pregnancy and enjoyed time with their daughter in the mineral baths, riding bikes along the gorgeous property and enjoyed delicious food at the delicious restaurant on the properties grounds, Sams Social Club.

When I have a little girl, or when my niece grows up I want them to meet men like Sean. Men that take care of their wives, children, and families. Men that support, cherish and protect their family.

Sean, is one of those men. I knew it from the moment he surrounded Julia’s car like a shield while she changed in the backseat.

And Julia, shes the kind of woman you want your little girl to grow up to be. Beautiful, yes. But even more beautiful on the inside, always so sweet and always so grateful.

Now when you have two amazing people like Julia and Sean its no surprise they created an even more amazing little one. Mia. And you can tell how amazing I think she is as shes in MANY of the shots below.

Enjoy this beautiful wedding taken place at the new gorgeous venue, The Crows Nest in Cazadero, CA.

Ive had the honor of photographing many beautiful couples, brides and families who are in the agriculture business. Growing up on a farm myself Ive always held an immense respect for families who give themselves to agriculture such as this family does. Mandy’s family has a beautiful ranch over hundred of acres amongst the gorgeous rolling hills of Tomales, where Graisson and Mandy held their reception.Their reception took place in the most beautiful barn with such a rustic feel with views of the rollings hills for days. Round tables with gorgeous flowers and decor perfectly paired the rustic feel of the barn. With its high ceilings, beautiful design, multiple different rooms there is no doubt this barn will be the next rustic venue trend!

Graisson and Mandy opted for a first look in the open field surrounded by their wedding party prior to their ceremony at St.Vincent’s Church in Petaluma. I never push first looks on my couples but also love it when they choose to do so as its gives the perfectly compliment to their full wedding gallery: bright images of mid day as well as sunset images. After their ceremony the wedding party and guests took shuttles back to Mandy’s family ranch and enjoyed a beautiful evening in their gorgeous bar.

We ended the night taking pictures at sunset with the cows surrounding us. I, like any other farm girl and sunset lover would be, was in complete heaven!  These two photograph so beautifully together and it was a pleasure to spend the day with them and their families documenting their love.

Congrats you two!

Karina and Jeremy tied the knot at the beautiful Mountain House Estates located in Cloverdale, CA. Surrounded by those who loved them most they promised each other forever and I don’t think there was a single dry eye by the end of the evening. If how stunning Karina looked didn’t make you tear up, then the heartfelt toasts followed with the sweetest brother sister dance would definitely make anyone shed a tear. Loosing a loved one is never easy and unless you’ve lost a parent/sibling/one you love its hard to put into words and the presence of that loss was evident during this beautiful day, but the love given by their biggest supporters surrounded them and created such a sense of support and hopefulness for Jeremy and Karina’s future.

Karina is one of the most beautiful brides Ive ever seen. Her choice of a classic, timeless look with her hair in a tight bun was stunning and a look that will stand the trends of a lifetime. Full of emotion she was all morning but you could see the ease in her body language and facial expressions when she was able to hold Jeremy’s hand at the altar. The events after the ceremony led up to some gorgeous sunset portraits. The kind of sunset portraits that make my photographers heart warm and happy.

Thank you both for allowing me to capture your beautiful wedding day.

soda rock winery wedding photography

 

Photographing Tatiana and Esteven’s beautiful wedding day at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg was a dream come true. I have been honored to photograph many important events leading up to this day including her engagement session, bridal boudoir session, bridal shower at Tudor Rose Tea Garden and now her wedding day. She has not only been a dream bride to photograph but has turned into a woman I now consider a friend.

From the floral arch by Wine Country Flowers, gorgeous backdrop of Soda Rock Winery, to the absolutely breathtaking light at sunset, this wedding is one of my favorites to date. No detail was missed and the love not only between Esteven and Tatiana filled the room and night, but the love everyone that witness their love had for them was so very apparent.

Thank you Esteven, Tatiana, and your amazing families for choosing me to document your special day. I know without hesitation that I will document so many more memories for you two and your family. You two remind me of how fortunate Iam to do what I love.
