Engagement Photography in Carneros

02/05/10 5:06 PM

As a referral from one of my industry partners, wedding planner extraordinaire Sharon Burns, I was introduced to this great couple Sara and Zach who are to be married later this year.  As part of all of my wedding photography packages, I always hold an engagement shoot a few months prior to the main event which serves multiple functions:  the relationship between photographer and wedding couple is solidified as I gain a sense of the energy and personality of the bride and groom.  In the end, I have a much greater understaniding of who they are as individuals and as a couple.  That way, on their wedding day, I am better able to anticipate and capture every wonderful, loving moment on film to be savored forever.

For some time now, I have driven by an abandoned train station in-between Napa and Sonoma in the Carneros Appellation of Napa Valley.  I felt the bright colors and overgrown grass and trees would make for fantastic visuals.   I had a feeling this couple in particular would love shooting their engagement photos at this location.   Sara and Zach loved it, and we were all inspired by the colors and the aesthetic  –they were able to relax and just be themselves here and it shows!  The results are perfect.
