Wedding photography in the rain has its challenges. However, the wedding of Kelly and John at Hans Fahden Vineyards in Calistoga, California on this rainy day was so beautiful that we didn’t mind getting wet!
An amazing wedding like this can only happen with the professional collaboration of a talented team. Here is ours:
Chateau St. Jean is one of the most beautiful wineries in California. They have been producing great wines in Sonoma for more than forty years. Cinq Cépages is the flagship wine of Chateau St. Jean. Each year, Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren selects fruit from Bordeaux varietal vineyards to craft a wine that showcases the best of Sonoma County. It combines the strength of the diverse region to create an approachable, well balanced and elegant wine.
On October 6, 2018, Chateau St Jean introduced the 2015 vintage of Cinq Cépages. The following images were captured at this beautiful event.
The fabulous event professional team that made this possible:
Paula & Dariush were married on the Sunset Hornblower yacht on San Francisco bay on a blustery day in August. We sailed out of Berkeley Marina and had a beautiful sunset cruise. Such a fun wedding! I”m really blessed with awesome clients 🙂
Deer Park Villa is just a short walk from where I live in Fairfax, California. It is in the most beautiful setting for an intimate wedding among the towering redwood trees. This is an incredibly photogenic venue.
The Sequoia Retreat Center is one of my favorite venues for photographing weddings. It is big but cozy. It is gorgeous. Your guests can stay in little cabins and you can have a true destination wedding in the forest. Definitely check it this Santa Cruz mountain location.
The fabulous wedding professionals who made this wedding possible:
I’ve photographed this event for the past several years and it’s always a hoot. It is completely sponsored by events industry vendors and they all bring their A-game to show off what they can do. This year, the event was at Temple Nightclub in San Francisco and had an 80’s theme. The industry association that throws the event is the International Live Events Association (ILEA).
The engagement of Ashima and Derek on Stinson Beach followed by a photo session on Mt Tamalpais. She lives in Georgia and he lives in Texas. His proposal marks the end of their courtship and the beginning of their life together. They say they’ll be back to Stinson soon 🙂
Beth Barton and I photographed the engagement session of Samantha and Victor in Golden Gate Park. We started in the Music Concourse and then went to the Japanese Tea Garden. Both places are always awesome. We finished up on Baker Beach for a nice foggy sunset 🙂
I shot an event at the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park earlier this year. It is such a cool space for a party because its also a museum with dinosaurs, a terrarium, an aquarium, and a live albino alligator! This particular event was produced by my friends at Entire Productions. They also produce AMAZING events and this was no exception.
