There are quite a few perks that come with being a California based wedding photographer...
And one of them is being located 20 min away from Napa Valley. Not only am I a wine and cheese snob, but I am in love with the wine country, and besides France and Italy so far there is nowhere that can compare to Napa Valley.
This last wedding I shot in St. Helena was particularly special to me because Jenna Beck the bride to be was a prior portrait client of mine who I met through a very dear friend Lamar Engel. What made it amazing was the fact that it was her parents 40th wedding anniversary and yes it was Valentines Day. Tyler and Jenna are amazing in every way, but the best thing about them is their heart for their kids Ethan and Valentina. As a father of four I just love that about them. So when she asked me to shoot their wedding I was so excited and couldn't wait to get back out to St. Helena.
I have to say this was the chillest wedding I have ever shot. Most of the day we had to improvise and fly by the seat of our pants, from scheduling to location restrictions, but all in all we got some amazing shots and everyone seemed to enjoy our service.
I was recapping Tyler & Jenna's wedding the next day with my right hand man and best friend Mick Sweeney, and we both agreed that our favorite part of the whole entire wedding was when we got to go back to Jenna's parents and drink a glass of wine with just the two of them. We got to see how awesome Tyler really was ad how much he loved Jenna and her family. We could have stayed there all night.
This wedding will go down in the books as one of the funnest weddings I have ever shot. I hope you enjoy this gallery of their wedding.
Until next time......:)
