Katie and Owen’s Sonoma, California wedding

A few years ago when I was living in the San Francisco Bay area, I had the great fortune to meet a group of wonderful friends who all grew up together in the Sonoma region.

To date, I have photographed four of their weddings. And I am very proud to now call them my friends, as well. Every time I travel to photograph one of their weddings, I am welcomed in as if I am part of the family. And not only am I very appreciative and honored to have the opportunity to be invited back time and time again to photograph their weddings and share in their special days, but I also leave with a twinge of sadness knowing that I have to leave them once again.

I recently photographed Katie and Owen’s wedding in the Kenwood area of Sonoma. Every wedding I have photographed for this group of friends could undoubtedly be featured in a wedding publication on “planning the perfect wedding“, and Katie and Owen’s was no different.

Their wedding was staged high on a hill overlooking the Sonoma Valley, and the reception took place at the beautiful Ramekins Culinary School & Inn. Hair for the ladies was styled by Jenny at The Loft Salon at Fountaingrove, and makeup was done by Kathy G from KG Makeup & Design.

Alas, I know the numbers of single ladies within this group of friends is dwindling, but rest assured I am doing my best to convince them that they need to invite me back at least once-a-year for vow renewals and family photo sessions.
