WAY too long blog post ? Why YES, is the answer to that question. But in my defense Sherri and Drew had such a beautiful wedding at one of my favorite places to shoot AND I had my best-ie Rachelle shooting with me AND they are both so dam good looking ! So that is why I am posting such a LONG post. Much thanks to Monte Verde Inn for having such a lovely venue and for being SO good to the vendors and giving us a DELISHIOUS meal. And a huge shout out to Joe from SJ’s Disc Jockey, he is one of the most seasoned in the business and we LOVE his lighting and easy going nature. Always a pleasure to work with such a pro !
I am so grateful to have been a part of this special day, one of my favorite memories is of Drew stating that Sherri was the love of his life ! What a doll !
Please get a snack when viewing this post lest you get low blood sugar, here goes :
Super hot photos, thanks Rachelle !
Endless great spots to photograph at the Monte Verde Inn !
I LOVE the photos of Sherri laughing the MOST ! Boy can that gal light up a room !
Drew was such a sweetheart ! Loved his light blue eyes !
The groom seeing his bride for the first time…. PRICELESS !
I warned you it was a long post, hang in there, maybe have a drink of water ?
Almost there !
Because I am doing an engagement session mash up. Perhaps because I am taking off for a week ( lets hope the world does not stop spinning on its axis because I turn off my phone for 5 days ) or because I would hate for any of my brides to wonder why they never got blogged ( who am I kidding, I have about 34 blog readers ) but here goes my sexy Engagement session mash up. I hope to do Finn and Rachel proud.
JAMIE AND WILL are getting married this fall. A series of events brought us together so it just felt like this magical fate that I get to be their wedding photographer. I am so in love with these two, they are any photographers dream couple.
Smokin’ HOT !
This was one of my favorites, at the very end of our shoot I finally persuaded him to take off his shirt
Matching tattoos ! Now THAT is true love people.
MIXED with what they call ‘SHERRI AND DREW’. These Super soul mates were MARRIED this July at the Monte Verde Inn ! So easy breezy to shoot, just a joy in every way. More of their love story and movie star good looks to come:
And last but not least CRISTY AND ERIKK ! They were full of ideas for their engagement session. I LOVED their enthusiasm ! Cristy reminded me of the actress Isla Fisher from the movie ‘ The wedding crashers ‘. She is one of the most vibrant girls ever to roam the earth , Erikk is not just another pretty face ! He is actually very deep and soulful. Together they are just plain AWESOME. They are getting married next may !
This is one of my favorite photos ever.
Did I mention how perky Cristy was ?
The groomsmen all danced to ‘ Tonto, jump on it ‘ by Apache. Anyone knows me this, is a part of my vocabulary oft telling friends ‘ tonto jump on it’. Come on ! All though out Becky and Adams’ s wedding I thought to myself ‘ this wedding is awesome ‘. Held in their parents yard, we watched the sunset in Napa while enjoying the true love union of this spectacular couple. Becky’s maid of honor, Monica Lynn of In full bloom by MLK did an awesome job with her flowers and Kinyon Culinary Services fed us well with a delicious meal that included a whole clove of roasted garlic ! Gotta love those Napa weddings.
Just to name a few things I LOVED about Becky and Adam:
I LOVED how they booked me on the spot, let me do my ‘ thing’ and wanted to focus on the moments vs loads of portraits. Their chiseled ( Adam ) and Smokin’ hot ( Becky ) good looks factored in, and one of my best friends Thais ( aka Thai-bo, she is one of the best photographers in town ) shot the wedding with me. So I it was like the super lotto of wedding photos. One of my favorite moments ( other than a bunch of guys dancing to one of my favorite old disco tunes ) was a part of their toast where their friend said ‘ Friends are like white tigers, if you have a couple of really good ones you are happy ‘ True ! I will always be thankful for being a part of this magical day !
One of my favorites !
We were so goo goo ga ga for Rebecca, what a beauty and she could strike a pose like nobodies business.
Adam, to know him is to love him.
LOVE this shot from Thais ( aka Thai-bo )
This is the white tiger guy : )
