I had the pleasure of working with Sara & Derek when their extended family came up to visit this fall for a Maine vacation from Ohio. It was such a fun coincidence finding out that Columbus (where I earned by BA) was a special place to these folks as well.

Sara & Derek bought some land in this lovely state and wanted to share the amazing view with the fam when they had come up this fall! But it was wet. It had rained for three or four days, was windy, and everything was a soupy goopy mess, so we made lemonade (figuratively) and took photographs on firmer ground.

A few months ago, however, Sara asked me about getting some photos of her family in their new (wintery) surroundings. I can’t wait to see the home they build! With this view, it can only be amazing. I am so humbled to work with this family again and love the connections this crazy fun job lets me build. Ohio and Maine in one place. Go bucks!

Sunstone villa flanked by olive trees--a wedding venue in Santa Ynez, Calfornia built with old-world, European charm

In the world of California venues, there are many that take your breath and offer a luxurious space to enjoy your day. Sunstone is one of the most iconic. Noted for it’s old-world charm and homey interior, this space feels less like you’re getting married at an estate and more like you’re getting married at home. Your very, very beautiful, Tuscan-inspired home.

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
