We are officially in love with Sonoma! This gorgeous area created a perfectly dramatic backdrop to this beautiful engagement session by Emily March Photography. The perfect combination of southern charm and french architecture, this session truly stands apart from the typical California wine country session.
From photographer Emily March Payne: Napa might be the famous wine region in California, but Sonoma has a lot going for it too! Tori and Jeff are dear friends of mine, and exploring such a beautiful area with these two resulted in some of my absolute favorite pictures. That California sunshine looks good on these two! We started their session at Chateau St. Jean, a beautiful little winery in the heart of Sonoma Valley. I loved it's classic French architecture and romantic gardens. Even in the dead of winter, this place has plenty of beautiful greenery - I can't wait to return in the summer! Our next stop was just down the road at the Sonoma Valley Regional Park where we caught last glimpses of sunshine. This park is a hidden gem, and I still cannot get over those crazy Dr. Seuss-like trees! I know I'll have a lot more engagement sessions in Sonoma, but I think this one will always be a little tough to beat.
