Its an honor and challenge at the same time when the client who hires us for a wedding shoot is also a photographer. An honor because they shortlist us from from amongst so many talented colleagues in the industry.And challenge because the pressure is on.

Susan, Allie's mom is also a photographer. She got referred to us via another photographer friend. Allie & Mike had a beautiful wedding at the scenic Nella Terra Cellars in Sunol. The beautiful winery was opened  for weddings only this year. So we were excited to shoot the first season wedding at this venue. 

The wedding day shoot started with getting ready pictures.Before ceremony started we also shot the first look and some couple pictures. The ceremony area in the middle of the winery had a beautiful valley backdrop and was tastefully decorated by LC Floral Design. We clicked some family pictures after the ceremony which led into wedding reception in the gorgeous white gazebo.We loved shooting the details, including the beautifully laid out dessert and cake table by Kristie's Wedding Cake Creations. The amazing DJ duo at the reception, Tri Valley Salsa and Entertainment, also gave a fun Salsa lesson to the guests on the dance floor. It started raining towards the end of the reception. I asked the couple if they were up for some pictures in the rain and they were totally excited about it. We managed to pull some great shots, thanks Allie and Mike for braving the rain.

Another highlight of the wedding was a vintage photobooth van by Bay Photo Bus,owned by Allie's parents. Guests had fun taking pictures with props there and we also clicked some couple shots there. 

Thanks Allie & Mike for letting us shoot your beautiful wedding. Sharing some fun moments  here.
