When Maia and Alex approached us at Tinywater about shooting their wedding, they said they loved our personal, intimate approach and vintage wedding photos. We knew that with the ideas and location they had in mind, it would be a match made in heaven! Joining the lovely couple at Ocean Song Farm and Wilderness Center in Occidental, California, we were able to capture vintage wedding photos of the couple atop the “rolling ridgetop grasslands, rugged canyons, oak woodlands, and redwood groves hosting fields of colorful wildflowers” throughout their big wedding day.
The fog began to roll in just as Maia and Alex’s traditional Jewish ceremony came to a close. The fog diffused the light just perfectly as we snapped some of our favorite vintage wedding photos and couple portraits of the day.
Maia looks so lovely in this light! It also helped that she was the epitome of a glowing bride on her wedding day. We had so much fun taking both posed and candid portraits of her throughout the Ocean Song property.
The mix of soft brown grassy fields, lush green forests, and wildflowers throughout the Sonoma landscape allowed us to take a variety of vintage wedding photos all within a walk of each location.
Maia and Alex were great to work with, and we couldn’t wait to play around with some portraits including their bright blue vintage car.
We couldn’t stop giggling with these two, it was more like play taking these couple portraits! The large boulders sprawled across the landscape was a fun texture to play with as a backdrop to these vintage wedding photos.
The best part of being a Napa wedding photographer is capturing real love between two people. It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
As the fog settled in, so did the chill in the air. After the lovely traditional Jewish wedding ceremony and couple portrait session, we slowly made our way out of the wildflower fields and into the cozy Ocean Song barn for Maia and Alex’s fun vintage reception. We couldn’t have asked for a better couple to spend the day with at one of our favorite locations in Nothern California’s wine country!
