Yesterday I got to photograph Jennifer & Chris' wedding at Tom Scott Vineyards in Napa.
It was a gorgeous drive there through Napa's winding highways, surrounded by fields and wineries and all things pretty. When I pulled in I immediately started to plan my shots. In the distance I saw a beautiful new barn amidst acres of vineyards, but what grabbed my attention was the rusty old 1950s Ford pick up on the side of the gravel road. Thats where we ended up doing Jennifer & Chris' "First Look." The texture of the old rusty truck against Jennifers white dress and Chris' grey suit couldn't have looked any better.
Timing things perfectly, Jennifer & Chris then walked down the aisle and had a tear-filled ceremony as the sun set on the mountain tops behind them. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. I even teared up as Chris started to sniffle and remove his glasses to wipe his eyes during his vows. <3
Then there was an intimate and cozy reception inside the new barn, dinner, speeches and dancing. I managed to sneak them away a few times for some staged wedding photos like the one pictured above. These are the ones that people will frame and cherish for decades, and I love creating these types of images for couples. To round out the night there was a whisky bar, cigar bar and frozen banana desert bar. YUM!
Congrats you guys, have a blast in Greece on your honeymoon!
