Thuong + Jeff | Calistoga Ranch | Calistoga Wedding Photographer

 

So many parts of Thuong & Jeff's wedding day just took my breath away.  The way these two connected with one another, as well as with their friends and family.  The beauty of the setting at Calistoga Ranch, coupled with the lovely elements that Thuong & Jeff incorporated into their wedding.  The king's table set up on the lawn in the beautiful end of day light - seriously stunning, and I love the intimacy of the entire wedding truly sharing a meal together.  Laura & Anton playing guitar & violin, with Laura's beautiful & hauntingly nostalgic voice gently carrying through the warm summer air.  Thuong in her dress - wow!!!  I dare you not to fall in love with her gorgeous smile and that stunning gown!!  And again the way these two gazed into each other's eyes - so inspiring and incredibly fun to capture through my lens. These are just a few of my favorites, or for many more, view their slideshow!

PS - On a little side note, I've been introducing some medium format film to some of my weddings.  It's been super fun to return to shooting film, and I've really been enjoying the ways that using film introduces another pace to shooting and composing images.  Working with and switching between both formats (digital & film) has been really rewarding & exciting!  I'm like a kid at Christmas waiting for my film scans to come back!  Can you tell which images below are film & which are digital?
