a fall-time stroll through the vineyard

Meeting up with Lindsay and Johnny for their engagement was truly a blast! After a couple attempts to nail down the perfect date to weather ratio, we came up with Plan C; a beautiful fall-time winery engagement. We honestly hit a home run with weather, because we had the most gorgeous light (my favorite!). Both Lindsay and Johnny are the most easy going couple and we all hit it off right off the bat. It was the perfect combination of good company and a beautiful walk through the vineyards. I wish these two the best in their future together :)

Chris + Kelly's Wine Country Wedding

Where do I even begin with this one!? Chris and Kelly’s Sonoma wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more. Everything about this day came together in a way that really stuck with me. Kelly has been a bridesmaid in several of my past weddings, so I feel like I really got the chance to connect with her in a big way before I had the opportunity to shoot her wedding! All the details of this day, from the dress to the table settings, just screamed elegant, and Im so happy I was able to capture all of it for the two of them. Kelly is one of the sweetest, most caring brides and I can really see that she found her perfect match in Chris! Both of their families were so caring and welcoming from the start that I was really able to capture the heartfelt moments of the day. It is days like this one that really make me love what I do and when photos turn out as beautiful as these did, it makes me excited to get behind the camera the next time!!
