Lynn + JP | Napa Valley Ranch Wedding

What happens when a super fun couple from two farm families find each other and fall in love? … an amazing ranch wedding with adorable country kids, a stage made of flat-bed trucks, fresh pies, vintage metal chairs, lots of cowboy boots and lights strung among an olive orchard. But more than anything I saw a lot of love and goodness shared! I loved being a part of this day!

{Megan + Michael} Calistoga Ranch . Napa Valley Film Photography

Megan & Michael came to me and I instantly knew that I would love them. When they explained that Megan was a World Champion Equestrian, Michael had a million great questions for me about my work and in lieu of an expensive engagement ring they decided to go to Thailand…these are my people! Their wedding was so fun; complete with a hike into the creek bed (love it when my clients trust me), a Guinness World Record setting PingPong rally, and a push-up contest between the bride and her father. Seriously…couldn’t ask for a wedding more fun to photograph. But despite all of the hoopla, the best part…the absolute best part, is watching these two look at each other. Nothing can out-do simple, honest, love.
