Wine Country Romance

This romantic photo session was meticulously planned, from wardrobe to location. We chose Gundlach Bundschu in Sonoma as a backdrop for featuring the love this couple has for each other and even borrowed a vintage car to complement the vibe we were trying to achieve. Jane and Shaun were amazing through it all.

It is always challenging to photograph under midday Summer sun, not only for the light condition but also because of the heat. It was over 90 degrees and I had to use a 3 flash set up at full power to override the sun. 


The vintage Volvo was such a great prop to have. I have to thank my neighbor for it. He had it parked outside of his house for such a long time I forgot about it and then a few days before the session I saw him driving it and he was so kind to agree to let us use it.

We ended up the session by walking around Gundlach beautiful gardens and we were lucky we could also enter into the wine cave, a must when in wine country. 




I was thrilled to capture Stephanie's maternity pictures, she was splendid and we had a blast all day long. She was a trooper till the end, thankfully we had Coleman and Jake to entertain us with exceptional basketball moves, playing video games, leaf blowing the dogs, drinking pink juice and what not ;-) eh eh, I love family life!
