This picturesque destination has long been on my list of California gems to explore. Originally planned as an engagement photoshoot in Yosemite, Michelle and Jonathan's plans took an exciting turn due to unexpected complications caused by March's heavy snowfall. However, I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity it provided—to venture to northern California, spend time with my best friends, and capture their love amidst the beauty of nature!

Located approximately 2 hours north of San Francisco, Michelle and Jonathan's engagement photoshoot at Point Reyes in Inverness, California, was a truly memorable experience. We were met with a formidable combination of icy 40 mph winds and a seemingly untamable mane of hair. Despite the challenging weather conditions, Michelle and Jonathan exhibited unwavering resilience and support for one another. It was heartwarming to witness their bond and how they embraced the elements with such grace. Our session took us to the famous Cypress Tree Tunnels, which not only provided a slight refuge from the wind but also added a sense of movement and playfulness to our photographs.

As I reflect on their incredible engagement session, I am filled with anticipation for their upcoming wedding at the enchanting Hans Fahden Vineyard in Calistoga, California. The celebration promises to be a joyous occasion, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of the vineyard and the love that radiates between Michelle and Jonathan.

Stay tuned for their wedding day, where we will gather at Hans Fahden Vineyard in Calistoga, California, to witness the beginning of their lifelong journey together.
