Kingsburg California, just off highway 99 Engagement Shoot | Matthew + Heather

Friday, June 24, 2011

Recently I was in Kingsburg California, just off highway 99, out in the middle of nowhere.  At least I thought that.  There was this gem of a place that was “there”.  I’m still not exactly sure where that is, but there are always sweet places to shoot, just like there are sweet people.  Kind of like this couple.  Matthew farms a few of my favorite foods, and my most favorite is peaches.  I must admit I got caught up eating them with Matthew and Heather while we were shooting, they were irresistibly good!  Matthew & Heather are getting married next month at Vina Robles vineyard in Paso Robles.  My favorite shots are from the sunflower field, which I passed by at 70 mph on the way down, and they caught my eye.  They made for a perfect location to shoot at as the sun went down. This day the light was amazing.  I could not have purchased it this good.  I can’t wait for this wedding!

Virginia Wedding | Keswick Vineyard Estate (teaser)

Thursday, June 9, 2011

On a quiet Tuesday nestled miles away from the busyness of city life, Chase and Jamie had their family join them at the Keswick Vineyards private estate in Virginia.  One of the top vineyards in Virginia out of the 160 total, Keswick has a unique feel atop a knoll in the countrside.  They had mostly their family and close friends attend their intimate ceremony and reception.  Set in early summer, every living plant was exploding with green.  The smell of gentle humid afternoon sustained a warm aroma of the flowers, vegetation, oak trees and vines.

I look forward to presenting the full feature of Chase, Jamie and their beautiful vineyard wedding soon.  Congrats and have an amazing time alone together in Costa Rica on your honeymoon!
