This is Brandon at Viansa Winery in Sonoma, CA. The moment you step onto the Viansa property you feel like you’ve been transported to Italy. From the vast vine filled fields to the stucco architecture with winding staircases and arched entryways with overbearing heavy wood doors this place has every detail to transport you half way across the globe. I had visions of monks inhabiting the barrel room but then had to remind myself that that probably was never the case.
This photo I took of Brandon was our 4-minute break of the day. Our videographer, Larry, was doing a 360 of the bride and groom gazing into each other’s eyes for the first time as husband and wife. He was definitely capturing a moment and I was happy to give him those precious 4 minutes.
Even though this was our time to rest I couldn’t resist taking this photo of Brandon. He looked so handsome with the 80 degree sunlight warming his face in the cool barrel room. Arms full of my lens bag, his D800, the mic boom he’s a man ready for action caught in a still moment. Even though the fake fur is called “dead cat” it still couldn’t ruin the mood and how handsome he looked at that moment.
