Wedding at Meadowood, Napa Valley, CA

I’m always in complete awe at just the sheer beauty and seemingly unlimited natural settings Napa Valley provides for magical wedding photographs and Meadowood is certainly no exception.  It is GORGEOUS!!!

Meadowood is located in St. Helena in the heart of Napa Valley – the property is a private haven nestled on two hundred-fifty wooded acres with abundant gardens and natural water features where there is a complete feeling of seclusion and privacy.

It is always a joy to work with another artist, and when I met Geoff and Kim, a very creative couple, I knew we would share a special day together.  They wanted to create a dramatic, yet whimsical visual for their special day.  We paired traditional formal shots with modern wedding photography in avant-garde dynamic angles and images.

The setting worked perfectly.  Because of the acres and acres of natural gardens and flowers I took advantage of the different kinds of light, shade and backgrounds to create a variety of dramatic and emotional, wedding photographs.

The ceremony itself was situated on the property near the reception area, and the convenience of a location like this creates a completely stress free environment for all concerned which of course is reflected in the photos from the day.

As you can see from their incredible images, the bride, groom, family and friends were thrilled with the wedding location allowing for truly unique wedding day memories that last a lifetime!

Baby Photography in Napa

My Bebe Collection has got me thinking…  these tiny, precious beings come to earth and change absolutely everything around us!  No matter what you think your life will be like when they arrive, it’s always very different.  The one universal in all families with new babies is love.

Babies deliver love to a family – the kind of indescribable love that takes you to a place you didn’t know existed, and this love for a child continues to grow for a lifetime.  As an artist and a father, I consider photographing magical moments between family members, nothing short of a privilege and an honor.  Now I’ve decided to offer something easily accessible for any family so they can capture this feeling and savor it forever.  It is called The Bebe Collection.

The Bebe Collection highlights each pivotal milestone in a baby’s new life with a photography session for babies who are 3, 6, and 12 months old.  I’ve learned that calm parents with a content, happy baby make the best subjects.  Through many years of experience, I have more than a few tricks I use to put everyone at ease during the photo shoot.  The results have been nothing short of  breathtaking and inspirational.

My Bebe Collection has been very successful.  Parents are thrilled to have three different stages of their baby’s life in one place to relish and share with others.  It’s quite simply beautiful.
