Newlywed Photography in Napa Valley {Xia + Homer}

08/14/13 12:10 PM

Christophe Genty is a photographer specializing in weddings of all kinds based in Napa Valley who works throughout The San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. He recently received the prestigious “Best of the Knot 2015” once again by the well-known print and online magazine, The Knot.com.

A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a newly wed session with a lovely couple from China who currently live in the Bay Area. Having already gotten married, they were drawn to the allure of Wine Country for their post-wedding photo shoot. Originally from the Gansu and Jiangxi provinces, Huangmao (Homer) and Xia called me and set up an appointment to take pictures during their romantic getaway in Napa.

We met for our session in the Los Carneros area just outside of town. The scenery was so spectacular and the couple so dynamic, our options for great photos seemed limitless. In fashion, every shot was perfect.

This couple made my experience even more fun than I had anticipated: they didn’t just allow me to capture their love for each other, but also spent time sharing bits and pieces of their life with me. Xia recently completed her PhD in computer science and is looking forward to teaching in Boston. Homer works here in California and has a particular interest in photography, prompting a great conversation about some specifics of what I do.

I loved their enthusiasm and genuine personalities, which absolutely shines through their pictures. Homer and Xia, you are a shining example of unconditional love. Thank you for sharing it with me!
