Engagement session in GuernevilleCorey + Ming

Engagement session in Guerneville

I shot an engagement session in Guerneville last July. Guerneville is close to where I live and I love the area so much! It’s so cute with little shops everywhere. Of course, there is the Russian River and the Pacific ocean close by, which makes it one of my favorite places in California. The beauty of the coast in the area – to me anyway – is just as beautiful as Big Sur :)

I loved working with Corey and Ming, they were so sweet together and I was glad to also be shooting their wedding soon after.

Wedding at the Boonville HotelSam & Erez

Wedding at the Boonville Hotel

Last summer I shot a wedding at the Boonville Hotel in California. The Boonville hotel in lost in the hills of Mendocino County. It’s cute and intimate ; perfect for a laid back wedding!

I had shot Sam and Erez before and I couldn’t wait for their wedding. I knew they wanted candid photos. Something that captured beauty and simplicity, as well as the moments of the day. I loved it!

Private Residence Wedding in CaliforniaAnnie & Bret

Private Residence Wedding in California

It’s pretty rare to shoot a private residence wedding in California, with all the gorgeous venues piling on top of one another, but it’s really fun. I like how it bring a more personal touch, especially when the residence holds memories for the bride or groom (or both!) In any case, it’s intimate and that’s exactly what Annie & Bret wanted for their wedding: a laid back celebration in the beautiful heart of Sonoma Valley.

The first time Annie contacted me, she said: “we will get married in the field out back overlooking a dahlia farm and barn, and party afterwards around the pool. The whole feel I’m thinking for this event is very “Palm Springs cocktail party” set in the middle of Sonoma. I am hoping to get a food truck to cater the event.”

So… Well done ;)
