I met Zak and Raney last year when they drove a zip car (brilliant idea by the way) to meet me at a local coffee shop to talk about their wedding. I can tell they were both in love and no doubt on their wedding day this is what was displayed.  They married at the Trentadue Winery in Geyserville, California with friends and family warmly gathered together for this special occasion.  Zak and Raney are classy and were very kind to us photographers, allowing us time to photograph their day creatively. The toasts were touching, the ceremony was sweet, and the reception was lively with Zak showing off his dancing skills to Michael Jackson.  Their dog was a little cute too. Thank you for allowing us to document your wedding day.  Congratulations to you both Zak and Raney.

Here are some coming attractions of Tim and Sarah’s wedding I photographed in the Bay area, livermore, California recently. The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the Ravenswood Historic Site, a victorian country estate, which has gardens, palm trees, a gazebo, and other beautiful areas to tour. What a beautiful fall wedding with colorful leaves everywhere. The family was was very loving and gracious. The men obviously loved football, asking every minute about the game (referring to Ohio and Minnesota). The sisters (bridesmaids), had cool Old Testament names (Sarah, Leah, and Rachael). Tim’s groomsmen were adventurous, and exciting to be around. Sarah was a beautiful bride and easy to work with in her simplistic wedding DIY approach. Very inspiring wedding, and refreshing to be a part of the wedding. What’s more, this old 1885-era Victorian house is perfect for weddings, and I hope to return again to photograph more weddings. Oh yeah, and the carrot cake was uber-delicious, really the best I’ve tasted. Alright, here is a peek of some of the images during the day.
