Sweet Lane Gardens is a hidden gem tucked into Sonoma County and it is amazing. Lupe and Donald had an amazing day with their friends and family enjoying beautiful weather and what the venue has to offer. Not, to mention, their son is the cutest! I was so excited to capture their day!
Lori and Johnny's wedding was a garden party-themed in Sonoma at Kenwood Farms and Gardens. It fit them perfectly! The awesome thing was that the officiate was a close friend and some of their close friends and family participated in parts of the ceremony. It was intimate and beautiful.
Venue & Caterer: Kenwood Farms and Garden; Wedding Planner: Sandy Green; Florist: Maria Cabada, Whole Foods Market, Sonoma
Shooting in the same location on more than one occasion is great because you know the best spots, you know how to work with the light, and it gives you a sense of comfort. The challenge is to keep the creative juices flowing and create new moments with each couple. The beauty of what I do is that I get to work with different personalities and styles of people. Getting to know the couple at our consultation and on the engagement shoot allows me to be creative, bringing out the personalities of the couple. I love that part of what I do. I find engagement shoots also help with helping the couple be more comfortable with photography on their wedding day. They are more at ease, know how I work, how I pose them, etc. and it just adds to the enjoyment of the big day!
Hillary, Ross, and I went to a familiar location for me and we had such a great time utilizing the mustard fields that were in bloom. I am so excited for their July wedding! Such a fun, down-to-earth couple - we are going to have a blast!
Stephanie and Tony picked the perfect setting for their close family and friends to celebrate their marriage! It was the night before a big storm and the wait staff and I saw the clouds coming in, but the night was perfect!
