Wine Country Wedding Photos at Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford by Brian MacStay Photography 17

Jason and Laura, along with many of their family and friends, traveled into the Napa Valley from Texas and to enjoy a little time in wine country before their beautiful mid-week wedding at the magnificent Auberge du Soleil. It was a beautiful summer afternoon for Laura and Jason’s wedding as you will see. I photograph a lot of couples and their families from Texas at Auberge. For some reason the people from that region of the country are always so wonderfully welcoming, warm, and accommodating. This couple and their family and friends were no exception.  From the moment Michelle and I arrived at the bridal suite we felt like welcomed guests, not just vendors. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed photographing this wedding. Not only was it visually beautiful, and full of wonderful moments of emotion, but also the couple and their guests were a heck of a lot of fun! As was the live music by The Apple Z Band who rocked the house that night!

Here are a handful of my favorite moments of their day! Enjoy!

What a gorgeous summer day it was at the amazing Meritage Resort & Spa for Vanessa and Joel’s wedding! It was an emotional day for everyone. The love and excitement from the big event filled everyones heart, and it showed in the tears of joy that flowed all day. The wedding was beautifully planned and designed by Vanessa (bride) and her sister Vahina, along with Alex and his team at Quintana Events.

I was thrilled to have been a part of this beautiful wedding, and am excited to share a handful of my favorite memories with you. I hope you enjoy.

Wedding Photography at Brownstone Gardens in Oakley 19

Amy and Justin’s wedding at Brownstone Gardens in Oakley was a day to remember for sure! It was my first time shooting at this venue, and with temperatures in the 100’s this week, the shade from the beautiful tree canopies was a welcomed reprieve from the heat!

The lush gardens of Brownstone made for a beautiful backdrop for this fun and emotion filled wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and full of emotion. Oh, and after there was a party and a bit of dancing. Okay, I lied, there was more that a BIT of dancing. Check out the photos to see for yourself! Ha!

Here are a few of my favorite moments of the day. Enjoy!

Engagement Photos at Moss Beach in Half Moon Bay 1

It was a beautiful sunny evening at Moss Beach in Half Moon Bay for Christina and Greg’s engagement photos! I love this location! Every time I shoot here it’s not only always beautiful, it’s also deserted. It’s almost as if no one knows about it. We hardly saw anyone while we were there!

Michelle and I spent a couple of hours photographing them in the wooded area above the beach, and headed down to the water for a spectacular sunset. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session.
