Derek and Jackie's Autumn Engagement Session, Central Park Fall Foliage Engagement Photography on Film

There are some couples that the moment I meet them I know we're meant to work together.  I fell in love a little bit with Jackie and Derek during our Fall engagement session- but really when you look at this gallery- who could blame me?  I knew Jackie really wanted some beautiful Fall colors and I was keeping my fingers crossed that the weather would hold up because this Fall has been crazy jumping from the mid 60's all the way down to the teens with lots of wind and rain battering all the pretty leaves.  However, on this gorgeous afternoon we totally lucked out and had a mild afternoon filled with sunshine and the most gorgeous red, yellow and orange leaves a California girl could dream of!  While I was shooting I was literally jumping up and down with glee repeating over and over again I can not wait to get this film back and it was worth the wait!  Downloading these scans may have resulted in an embarrassing little happy dance alone in my apartment.  Counting the days till their wedding next March!  See more of their session today on Style Me Pretty!

Diana and Gerry's Romantic Wedding at Gainey Vineyard, Santa Ynez Fine Art Wedding Photography

I had such a blast with Diana and Gerry at their gorgeous and fun-filled California vineyard wedding!  The day was full of elegant and glamorous touches while still embracing the rustic vineyard setting in Santa Ynez.  The bride sparkled in her rhinestoned Jimmy Choo’s and Kate Spade earrings while the groom looked sharp in his bespoke blue suit.  The couple’s favorite movie is Up so they incorporated the brightly colored balloons into their reveal before the ceremony and the bride surprised the groom with a very special “Ellie Badge” grape soda bottle cap pin from the movie.  Watching the golden hour light shine through the great big California Oak Trees while Diana and Gerry embraced each other under a bouquet of brightly colored balloons was one of those surreal moments that make my heart skip a beat and make me so appreciative of how friggin cool my job is!  The Jersey natives made the day extra special by bringing their dogs along to California and they were dressed for the occasion in a bowtie and tutu.  The couple said their vows under a beautiful California oak tree as the sun set behind them lighting up the Santa Ynez Mountains.  After the intimate ceremony guests danced the warm summer evening away under rows of bulb lights strung up in the courtyard next to the vineyard.  This wedding had me wanting to pack my bags and move back to CA for good!  See more from their wedding on Style Me Pretty today!
