Carolina and Richard: V. Sattui Winery

Throughout Carolina and Richard's wedding there were these perfect little moments where everything just clicked--the light, the emotion, the people, the joy of the day.  I remember the first couple of times these moments surprised me because they came so early and so easily--sometimes it takes people awhile to relax and feel comfortable.  For Carolina and Richard these things seemed to come effortlessly, and I don't mean in a fairytale way.  This couple and their friends and families have all known each other a long time, they know and understand each other in a way I find hard to put into words, but it's really beautiful.  When I realized all this I took a deep breath and just leaned into it, grateful for every moment I was able to photograph.  

And yes, that dress.  Pretty amazing. 

Many thanks to V. Sattui and to an especially outstanding team of creatives.  A special thank you to my good friend and fellow photographer, Ken Viale, who helped photograph this wedding with me.  Thank you Ken--I always love working with you and seeing how our persectives comes together to tell a story.
