Napa Wedding Photographer – Adeline & Tadashi’s Wedding

It is always enjoyable to have the opportunity to photograph a couple on multiple occasions.  We photographed Adeline and Tadashi for their engagement photos in Yountville (see the post before this one) and again on this lovely sunny afternoon for their wedding at Brix.  It seemed like we have known them forever!  Their wedding took place surrounded by vineyards, just beyond the lovely gardens at Brix.  A few of our favorite photos are featured below, starting with this dramatic ceremony shot with a beautiful starburst sun behind them.  I must admit that besides all of  the lovely friends and family in attendance, a favorite guest of mine was the Akita, who was all decked out with his wedding day best (even his manners)!  The ceremony was officiated by Kimberly Thompson of a Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley, wedding coordinator was Sonja Beazley Burch of Intimate Weddings Napa Valley.

Napa Engagement Photographer – Adeline & Tadashi

Words cannot adequately express the emotion, spontaneity and fun that are captured in these engagement photos of Adeline & Tadashi!  It is our goal to capture images that are natural and lets the viewer immediately understand the feelings behind the photos.   We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to not only photograph them for their engagement photos, but their wedding as well at Brix in Napa Valley.

How to eat wedding cake, a step by step guide

Did you just accept a marriage proposal and are beginning the new year with planning your big day with a Napa Valley wedding?  If so, congratulations!  So many things to consider including the dress, venue, flowers, photography and the not-to-be forgotten wedding cake…a tradition you will find at most weddings.  Couples may spend hours deciding on what the perfect one is for them.  Clue:  tasting is the best way to narrow down your choices; after all, don’t you want a cake that is not only visually-pleasing but tastes good to you?  But, have you ever thought of how you should actually consume this tasty creation?  Should you take tiny bites or big bites?  The flower girl below demonstrates a variety of ways to approach the situation.  In my opinion, there is no right or wrong way…just enjoy it!  Cake supplied by Sweetie Pies, Napa.  


Napa Portrait Photographer – Patty & Paul’s 25th Wedding Anniversary

Patty and Paul celebrated their 25 years of marriage with a trip to Napa Valley and a stay at Auberge du Soleil.  Although we really enjoy photographing many weddings and the start of a couple’s life together, it was s a pleasure to have a part in documenting this couple’s long-time commitment to each other!  I truly wish all couples this kind of love on their 25th wedding anniversary and beyond.
