Rutherford Hill Winery is a special place to Lindsay and Brent and was a great backdrop to begin this Napa Valley engagement session. By the way, if you go you MUST taste the Port with chocolate covered blueberries…aaammmaaazing!! We had a great time with them driving down through the valley and scoping out beautiful spots for their engagement pictures. We didn’t have to go far to find out that these two can make any place look good! And it didn’t take long to figure out that we would end up laughing for the majority of the session. These two, I tell ya! They are funny. From “bringing the gun show” to being serenaded by Brent’s lovely vocals and choreography, I had to include some outtakes from our session, just to show why we were laughing so hard. What a great time!
What can we say except that Heleyna and Kyle are so easy to photograph and fun to hang out with? These two are not just beautiful, but also super genuine people. Damion had a blast with them in Laguna Beach while being grilled by Kyle about his entire medical history, from birthmarks to green eyes (just teasing you Kyle!). But seriously, Kyle’s passion for medicine and for the well being of people is contagious and impactful. He carries a rare and natural gift in the area of health and medicine. The thing I love about Heleyna is that not only is she gorgeous in the color images, but there is just something about her face in black and white that is incredibly striking! The B & W’s from the beach session were my (Julie’s) favorites of the entire shoot. Can’t wait to see you guys in a couple of months again!! Hope you all enjoy!
After Sarah & Noah’s ceremony, they were whisked away for a few “married” portraits while their friends and family noshed on delicious hors d’oeuvres created by Elaine Bell Catering and enjoyed a summer themed cocktail hour on the barn patio complete with green grass, hay bales and a bright celebratory color palette. They also shared their private reserve of wine, which the guests, of course, loved! Dinner was served under the tent while the after party was set up in the barn where they danced the night away!
Thank you to Noah & Sarah for allowing us to be a part of this great day! You guys were awesome and so chill…and so in love. We love seeing couples who adore each other–THAT is what makes the best pictures–true love. May you have many more years of happiness and true love!
