If you’ve visited my main website and checked out my faves page, you know I’m hopelessly in love with California. My mom’s side of the family is from the Golden State and my older siblings were born there. I would have been too if not for my military parents being stationed overseas (in Germany!) when my mother was pregnant. Despite being raised as a southern belle, I’m a “Golden” girl through and through.
So you can imagine my excitement when Animesh and Wanwisa contacted me to photograph their Sonoma engagement session! I’ve only had the pleasure of visiting the Napa/Sonoma area once before on a day trip from Sacramento. Of course I absolutely jumped at the opportunity to head back that way! This session was even more special because my cousin Mychelle, an aspiring photographer herself, assisted me. We arrived early to scout out the perfect locations, which wasn’t hard at all considering Cornerstone Winery is a goldmine of gorgeousness. Then our equally gorgeous couple arrived and made my job even easier. Animesh and Wanwisa are perfectly adorable together and complete naturals in front of the camera. Before I knew it the sun was setting and it was time to wrap up our session. But then Animesh invited Mychelle and I into the Obsidian wine shop for a quick wine tasting before we parted ways. I couldn’t think of a better way to end such a lovely session in my favorite place in America! Animesh + Wanwisa, I wish you nothing but the best for your Thailand + Nepal wedding and reception!
