Raquel & Mike's Prewedding Shoot.

We got together this past Sunday after squeezing some time from their busy travel schedules. Raquel and Mike are old friends of and referrals from uber-clients Michelle and Bob Barlesi who's wedding I photographed last year.

Raquel and Mike have friends with property in Napa and we were lucky enough to photograph there. The setting was incredible as Sciandri Vineyards is situated near the top of a hill overlooking acres of vines. Much of the property has seemingly been sculpted with photography in mind. We spent hours there! After wrapping up we talked with the Sciandri's for a bit who said their first bottling was probably going to be released in 2008.

After a short drive up the road and through a private gated entry we were at the Caldwell Vineyard. The land in this area is very hilly with terrific western exposure and packed with row after row of grapevines. It is late Spring so they are not bearing fruit just yet, but the vines themselves are very picturesque as they wind along the hillsides. Views of the Napa Valley were awesome too. We made certain to hang around for some late afternoon shooting just prior to sunset.
