El Dorado Hills Photographer | Passport Weekend

By |May 6th, 2024|Event Photos, Travel, Wine|

Nestled in California's Gold Rush Region, El Dorado County boasts a wealth of wineries often overlooked by wine enthusiasts. Adjacent to South Lake Tahoe, this picturesque landscape hosts the annual El Dorado Wines Passport Weekend, a two-day event showcasing the region's finest wines and culinary delights. As the official El Dorado Hills photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing the event's essence—the laughter, camaraderie, and the wines—while sharing the experience with friends and even my dog. Join me for a weekend of wine, friends, and unforgettable memories in California's hidden wine country gem. Cheers to wine!

Crafting Brand Identity: Sierra Foothills Winery Photographer

By |February 26th, 2024|Commercial Photography, Tips for Creatives, Wine|

California winemaking is a fiercely competitive market, and while wineries in the Sierra Foothills aren't exactly trying to compete with Napa and Sonoma by any means, they also understand the importance of establishing a distinctive brand identity to thrive in the tourism market.  This identity is going to reflect my backyard: the region's unique characteristics, values, and personality, which are infinitely more relaxed than the hustle and bustle of California's larger cities. Crafting a compelling brand identity is essential for fostering consumer trust, loyalty, and recognition. I was recently hired as a Sierra Foothills winery photographer to help position the wineries of El Dorado County as a sought-after destination.

Triple S Ranch Wedding | Calistoga, CA

By |March 27th, 2023|California, wedding, Wine|

Sarah and Nathan picked quite possibly the best wedding venue in Napa, CA. It’s beautiful. It’s unique. It’s luxurious without being pretentious. It has all the elements a venue needs to make your wedding day unforgettable. From the stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains to the exquisite gardens and elegant indoor spaces that make you feel like you’re in a villa in Italy, this venue has it all. I fell in love with both Calistoga and the rolling hills of this Triple S Ranch wedding and you will too.

Ali and Seth LOVE bikes. They love bikes so much they wanted their Holly's Ocean Meadow Wedding to be filled with them! They love bikes so much they were going to go on a bikepacking trip across Europe as their honeymoon. I ALSO love bikes! Seemingly, this was an absolute match made in heaven and I was so excited to return to Holly's Ocean Meadow in Mendocino, CA to capture their amazingly perfect bike filled wedding day.
