Michael and Jessica married at the Anderson Luxury Ranch in Sonoma, California. We loved their style, their colors, the variety of stylish bridesmaids dresses and the love between them all. Married in the wine country is beautiful thing, but quite another to be exchanging vows overlooking valleys and plains from hilltop vistas covering 75 acres to hike and explore.

We worked with Lally Clark from A Savvy Event who did a phenomenal job coordinating. Catering by Ramekins, Florist by Venn Floral, Dessert and cake by Crisp Bakeshop, Make-up and hair by It’s a date, lighting by Twilight Design, Transportation by California Wine Tours, DJ – Boutique DJ’s, Rentals by Encore Event Rentals, Videography by Kindlewood Films. The groom and groomsmen got ready at the El Pueblo Hotel in downtown Sonoma.

Congratulation to Michael and Jessica on their commitment and their future together.

I just finished photographing Joe and Rachel’s wedding last night at the Sonoma Garden Pavilion, a Wednesday wedding, which rarely happens.  I usually post a handful of images from a wedding, and I know we captured some beautiful sunset images yesterday; images with the sun through the trees and through the vineyard, beautiful lighting as you typically see in some of my wedding blogs with wedding couples.  I try to experiment and capture different images each time I shoot a wedding, try out new ideas, and push myself.

Here’s a unique and artistic image that stirred my heart and my imagination (even though there were other images in this set that were dramatic, posed, and in focus).  This image creates mystery because I can’t exactly tell what’s going on, but I know it’s a couple and they are in love, enjoying their wedding day celebration. It creates romance because it’s a couple surrounded by a moody and colorfully lit pool in the later evening.  It’s a magical and provokes me to wonderment.  It even looks like a painting of some sort.  This image allows me to visualize love in a repetitive manner without getting bored after a few minutes.  I hope post some of their wedding day images soon.

(and I posted another one).
