Wedding Proposal Photos at Auberge du Soleil 6

It’s always exciting experiencing the anticipation of a marriage proposal! Most of them are full of joy and a ton of fun! As you will see the hour I spent with Andrea and Adrian at Auberge du Soleil was a blast!

Adrian drove his girl friend Andrea out from the Central Valley to pop the big question. Here’s what happened on this beautiful sunny evening in Napa Valley…!!!

I love when I get to be there at the very beginning. I am invited often by the amazing Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford to photograph surprise wedding proposals, and they are so much fun! Never mind the amazingly beautiful setting, the perfect weather, just look at the joy and emotion from this wonderful event!

I am so thankful that I get to record these moments that they will share for a lifetime!

Alyse and Zach flew in from Saten Island, New York, for a bit of a get away. Unbeknownst to Alyse, Zach had other plans. Here’s how it went that day!

Now it’s time to share the good news with Mom! I wish I had recorded audio for this! Mom was shrieking with joy! It was very cute!

When she asked him “how did you pick out the perfect ring? The exact one I wanted?” he said “I hacked your Pinterest account when you were asleep.”

It was an absolutely gorgeous spring afternoon in San Francisco at Sutro Baths recently for Aida and Amiel’s engagement shoot. I just love this shot of them on the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

Ariel and Fernando are absolutely the sweetest couple! And their families are equally as loving and warm people! We had a wonderful time photographing their beautiful wedding at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Livermore and Diablo Country Club in Danville recently. Fernando is from Argentina, so much of his family traveled in for the big day. It was so wonderful seeing these two cultures and two families celebrate this beautiful union. I am always humbled to be invited to such amazing and sacred events.

Here are a few moments of their special day. I hope you enjoy them!

Ashley and Brian flew in from Texas to spend a week enjoying the spa, wine and fine dining at the amazing Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford. I was put in touch with Brian a few weeks ago to help him plan the big moment when he would ask Ashley to be his wife. It is so incredibly exciting being there at the beginning of these couples lives! The nerves, the excitement and joy is often overwhelming. I am so privileged to witness and document some of the most exciting times of peoples lives, and this moment between Ashley and Brian was no exception! The story told in the images below say it all.

Ashley and Brian are an incredibly fun and sweet couple! They insisted that because I was the only witness to their big moment, that I join them for champagne and cheese. I took a few moments with them to hear their story, hear their joy and laughter, and then left them to enjoy this precious time alone together.

The one funny thing that happened while Brian was proposing is Ashley kept asking “what’s that clicking sound?” LOL! Well, that clicking sound is the result of the moments captured below. I hope you enjoy seeing these moments as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
