A Sonoma Summer Wedding

A family of twelve, a stunning estate, a beautiful day.. I had the pleasure of photographing Jaclyn and Mick's wedding during Summer, it was a very hot day in wine country; I arrived early to take some pictures of the bride getting ready and also to explore the property. I had the opportunity of getting to chat with all the guests and it was very nice getting to know them all.

 

Jaclyn was stunning and when she arrived in her beautiful dress accompanied by her father, emotions were intense. 

The ceremony was perfect, brief and fun, the groom's older brother officiated and made everyone smile. You could tell they couldn't wait to be married, oh the joy!

Despite being past 6pm, the sun was relentless, it took a lot of flash power to overcome it. I had my friend Monica assisting me and I couldn't have done it without her help, we had a 2 flash set up at all times and a 3 ocf with 600W mono for a few of the captures.

We had lots of fun playing around with the family pictures, great personalities call for exceptional photos..

We left the party at dinner time, as the day was done and the sun finally set, I had the brief opportunity of taking the few last images of the day.
