We had the privilege of photographing & filming Heather & Ron’s wedding at this beautiful winery in Napa’s wine country. They flew out from Illinois to have a destination wedding in California with a few close friends and family members. Heather was so nervous the whole day about crying that she kept using techniques to make her laugh and keep sidetracked from her feelings. It was very funny. The weather did not go according to plan for the ceremony, but we still managed to sneak in a few great shots outside between the rain showers. Enjoy a few photos from the wedding!

We started off the day hoping for no rain but by the time the ceremony started it was pouring. Luckily the people at Cinnabar Golf Club were prepared and had a tent set up. The wedding was still beautiful in all the shades of red that decorated the ceremony and grand room. We also caught a break as the rain let up just enough that we could still grab some romantic shots outside with the couple. Michelle clearly loves Francisco and he loves her and her daughter as well, as there was tears of joy and plenty of laughter through the night. Here is our Same Day Edit from the day… Enjoy!

I can’t remember when we’ve received as many compliments on a SDE as this one. Angela was so nice (and such a beautiful bride) and Steven was so funny – I can see why these two had so many friends celebrating their day with them. Their day was beautiful down to the last detail, but the weather did not cooperate. We all made the best of things and I think we shot a really solid video. Enjoy!

This wedding was great and we pulled out all the stops for this couple. Cathy & Lee were an awesome couple to work with. With a strong presence of friendship, family, and love, it was very easy to bring their story to life on their special day. We wanted to do something special for them so we started with a brand new concept on our enhanced 3D slideshow. It features dramatic lighting and effects timed to the music. We concluded the evening with a same day edit that showcased the day’s events.

Shylette & Christian got married on a beautiful day in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The weather was just right with a slight breeze. After a couple early morning flights (fresh from our two weddings on 10/9) we drank our wake up juice and we were ready to get started. We began at the all-inclusive Riu Palace for some getting ready shots and then headed off to the ceremony and reception at the Sunset da Monalisa Restaurant. The ceremony was held on a bluff over looking the ocean. The reception took place in the open-air restaurant with a view of the sea and featured a night of fun with a live band and drinks for all! We were glad to be a part of their special day and destination wedding. Here is the Same Day Edit that we shot and showed at the wedding… Enjoy!
