Caryn and Todd // A wedding in the vineyards

California is full of little hidden gems, many of which can be discovered in the Bay Area’s wine country. Caryn and Todd took a trip to breathtaking Napa Valley to tie the knot. Inside the V. Sattui Winery amidst their aging barrels of wine, the couple found a gorgeous gala celebration prepared for them. The glowing candlelight flickered against the the wooden barrels and gave the impression of a place rendered timeless by old world charm. The beauty and grace of the cellars lent itself well for us to use our Canon prime lenses. In low light situations, these lenses have a chance to really display their ability to create a soft and warm feel in the finished video. Protected from the overwhelming outside light, they capture all the crisp details and enhance every crack and crevice of the aging barrels. We marveled at the century old architecture, and were simply taken aback by the scenery that surrounded us. It provides a wonderful backdrop to the beginning of Caryn and Todd’s lifelong marriage together!
