Drozian Photoworks » Photography that is Uniquely You

Megan and Jonathan’s wedding was a total whirlwind of fun! We were both in the wedding party and shooting (yes that’s totally us and Sarah in the pics) so we were all over the place the whole night! The ceremony and reception took place at Hans Fahden Vineyards in Calistoga, and it was such a gorgeous setting for the ridiculously class wedding that Megan has been talking about having since we were in high school. No wedding with the two of them would be complete without a pile of Walking Dead, Wonder Woman, and Star Wars details (Dusty especially LOVED the Star Wars part) that you would expect at a wedding in wine country. Boba Fett even showed up for a photo op!

Murrieta’s Well is such a gorgeous venue! The rows of vines there are so perfectly situated for beautiful light, and Alyssa and Vince get so cute whenever they’re within six inches of each other, that it makes for the most romantic shots! We absolutely loved the sweetheart-neckline wedding dress that Alyssa chose, and it fit perfectly with the style of the vineyard and barn. The ceremony itself took place in front of the tasting room/barn at the winery, with the reception following in the wine cellar. The tables were decorated with centerpieces made of pink and white flowers in painted vases, and we loved how they complemented the wooden wine casks and pillars of the cellar.

Naomi and Bryan have the cutest garden in their back yard, so we started off their session there with their dog, Loma. Bryan was super sweet and picked some flowers for Naomi, which made for absolutely adorable pics! They chose to wear shades of purple for their first outfit, and the colors looked so great in the middle of all the rich greens of their garden! After the garden shots, we walked down the street to Bidwell Park and did a few pics at the spot where Bryan proposed to Naomi. Then we all jumped in the car and drove up to Upper Bidwell to finish off the shoot with pics at sunset. The grass and the hills there always look so amazing at that time of day!

Has there ever been a cuter engagement session prop than a puppy!? Katelyn and Kevin brought their puppy Dixie along for their session, and Dixie was sooooo adorable the entire time! We did their engagement session at the same vineyard where Katelyn and Kevin will be getting married, and it was such a gorgeous area for pics. Katelyn wore a white, crochet dress and embroidered boots that went perfectly with the vineyard and surrounding hills. We also loved the different props that she and Kevin brought along, including a huge metal heart, a rusty ampersand sign, and the most adorable little sign for Dixie to wear!

Emily and Drew, along with their friends and family, are so quirky and fun that we literally spent the entire day smiling and laughing at their wedding! Scroll down to the “Evolution of the Groom” pic, and you’ll see a perfect example of the hilarity! Between the Garden Pavilion and all of the decorations they brought themselves, there were a million cute little details to shoot. Both Emily and Drew are doctors, so we loved how they incorporated all of their doctor-themed decorations like medical books, doctor bags, and candy favors in little bottles. Their dog Franky (whose previous starring role was at their engagement session) was hanging out for the day, too. Every time you pick him up he totally looks like he’s smiling, so he got plenty of attention, too! When it was time to do their sunset pics, Emily decided that she didn’t want to put her heels back on so she just went out into the vineyard barefoot. It was so adorable!
