I’m so excited to photograph Bambo and Janice’s upcoming wedding in July.  Their wedding will be incredibly unique, and I look forward to being a part of it.  When I spoke with Bambo, he was very down to earth, and really appreciative of my fashion inspired wedding style.  Take a look at this amazing “Save the Date ” video filmed by Chris and Jennifer Mae of Major Diamond Productions

Gorgeous cover photo shot by fashion photographer Warren Difranco .  I absolutely love his work.

Kunde Family Estate is one of my favorite places on Earth.  I was tempted to set up camp somewhere on the property and never leave…..

Thanks to an amazing group of Wedding Professionals, and our gorgeous model Jessica, we had lots of fun on this shoot featuring an Ines Di Santo Wedding Dress.

The amazing Valley Flora in Napa created the perfect look with purple flowers and theme.  Sarah and Stephanie with Cole Drake Events pulled the look together with table set up and decor.  They never cease to blow my mind.  An array of Sugar Cakes designed and provided by Susan Garfield with Sugar Art by Susan completed the look.  My mouth fell open when I walked into the Dunfillan Ruins.  I just hoped to do it justice.
