I was so excited when Destination I Do magazine contacted me for some "quintessential wine country" images for a feature they were planning to do on "Wine Country Couture." They had a particular vision in mind, and I knew that the detail images from a recent Wine Country Wedding at Atwood Ranch in Sonoma would be perfect!!
Thanks to "Destination I Do" for featuring my work in this amazing issue, also featuring some inspiring photographers I admire. You can find the magazine at your local Barnes and Noble, so be sure and check it out for lots of fabulous destination wedding ideas. Gorgeous cover image by Chris Schmitt.
It was a pleasure to photograph Charlotte and Coley who eloped in the Napa Valley. I love the intimacy and simplicity of these types of weddings. They flew in from Southern California that morning, picked up their little cake from Sweetie Pies in Napa, quickly got dressed, and met me downtown. Absolutely fabulous!!
An and Leven came out from New York to celebrate their vineyard wedding at the Rustic Atwood Ranch in Sonoma. The team at Atwood Ranch did a fabulous job as always, creating the quintessential wine country wedding. Stunning table decor and styling by Julie Atwood. Beyond scrumptious and mouth watering dinner and desserts by Sage Catering in Sonoma. Gorgeous flowers by Anne Appleman.

Cyndie called me on a Wednesday. She planned to elope on Saturday. Nothing was planned, but she was going to make it happen. We hit it off immediately, and quickly devised a plan! Within 24 hours, she had her dress, and a pair of sassy red shoes! They married in a field........... just the two of them, and I cried silently just like I always do at weddings. Their open and spontaneous personalities reflected in the images we created!
Congratulations to you both, and thanks for bringing me along! It was awesome.
