Alex flew in from New York to join Kira and I at the beautiful Gamble Gardens in Palo Alto for their fall engagement shoot. The weather and the light could not have been more perfect! I can’t wait to shoot their wedding at Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club in Menlo Park this spring!

For Hillary and Joe their big day in Rutherford at the spectacular Auberge du Soleil with their family and friends was a destination wedding come true! There was a slight chance of rain that day, but it held out perfectly, and the cloud cover coming in and out just made for the most amazing light and backdrop for their beautiful ceremony on the deck overlooking the Napa Valley.

I was privileged to be a part of this beautiful union. Here are just a small handful of my favorite moments of their special day.

It was a beautiful and warm evening in San Francisco for Lisette and Joe’s engagement shoot! The Palace of Fine Arts was practically empty, and we lucked out with a nice warm session on Baker Beach as well! After the beach we headed down the pier for a few night shots.

Here are a few of my favorites from the evening. Can’t wait for their wedding coming up this weekend in Sonoma!

La Soie Bridal is a leading bridal salon in California. They have six locations including, Valencia, Torrance, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Sacramento and the recently opened Walnut Creek Store. Our studio has been sharing a new relationship with La Soie, starting with sponsoring the grand opening of their beautiful Walnut Creek location (see the photos here).  We recently had an opportunity to work with La Soie on an amazing editorial shoot featuring a handful of their new 2015 collections! The shoot features five gowns from La Soie and Enzoani lines. If you are in the market for a gown for your wedding I encourage you to contact the store and make an appointment.

We had the privilege of working with some amazing talent for this shoot, including the outstanding stylist, hair and makeup artist Armando Sarabia of Get Your Do Up. Armando is incredibly talented, and is one of our studio’s preferred vendors recommended to all of our brides looking for the best artist and service in the business. We take great pride in recommending Armando!

We also had an outstanding professional model fly in from New York to help us create these beautiful images! Anelisa Durham was outstanding.  She has a gift, and is a true professional!

Special thanks to Shadowbrook Winery in Walnut Creek for giving us a beautiful backdrop for our photographs! This winery is celebrating their 100 year anniversary this year!

Also, thank you to Vicens Forns Photography for coming and assisting!

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.  I hope you enjoy!
