Amanda & Ethan were referred to me by my good friend, Matt Guyot, from Brix Restaurant & Gardens. To my excitement they booked me sight unseen, based solely on the work I've done for Brix over the last several years. Going to Napa on the edge of fall is probably my favorite time of year to shoot in the vines. With the threat of heavy clouds and the grapes and vegetables glistening with rain from the night before, I was home. There's just no comparison to the smell and color of this gorgeous garden venue in early autumn. Amanda arrived in a wave of beautiful bridesmaids and we got straight to work shooting. Amanda & Ethan were a total riot right from the start, relaxed and easy to work with. Ethan was worried he'd shoot to serious, which was absolutely not the case, but then I found it pretty easy to tickle his funny bone when I needed to. The day only got more beautiful; the clouds started to part just as the ceremony started. As it turned dark the party was off like a shot! I was having such a great time I just had to stick around for a tiny slice of pie! Of course I didn't have much of a choice with the couple passing their own "cake" around to their guests. Thanks Amanda & Ethan, you were wonderful hosts and I had a ball!
