San Geronimo, the Bridge, & Wine Country. Weekend in Review

While most of my weekends I’m shooting for work, this past few days has been full with other fun. Saturday I was invited to the San Geronimo Golf Course for their Open House. I grabbed a camera as I walked out the door, but didn’t realize that it didn’t have a memory card in it. (thus the reason for bridge shots rather than Golf Course love).  The Golf Course is under new management and their staff invested a lot of their time and energy into the event. I also found out that they put me on their new preferred vendors list which is always exciting for me.

So here’s my little plug. If you’re a bride looking for a beautiful location in Marin than I suggest you give it a look. From a photographers point of view I love that you have the redwoods, a little river, and the open scenery of a golf course all right there. The options for creating beautiful images are pretty much endless (yes I’m regretting that memory card now :). The SF Chronicle has also rated this course as the best place to golf for the last 5 years running, which means the place is immaculate. But I think the most important thing when planning a wedding though is to surround yourself with people that are easy to work with and want to make your day a success. Jennifer and Kelly were super-sweet as well as having the organization of this Open House down. It feels like this is turning into a yelp review, but I really just want to say thanks publicly to them for hosting the event. It was great to meet some other photographers, florists, and videographers.

Saturday night Heather’s cousin, Patrick, was in town from the east coast so we went out to shoot the bridge. The first shot is the classic, “yes, I live in San Francisco”. While the second ones are a result of playing around with shooting Patrick’s profile while he was focused on the bridge. I didn’t bring a tripod so those ones’s are a little less sharp.

Finally, an image from yesterday’s trip to Napa. My favorite wine in the world here. Jessup Cellars Cabernet. mmmm…hmmm.

Thanks Patrick, it was really great to have you, and while I don’t think the shots are technically very sound (who shoots a night-scape without a tripod seriously what were we thinking), I had a lot of fun trying to take interesting pictures of you with the bridge as a backdrop.

I just stumbled upon these now! Your shots came out much better than mine did – ah well 🙂
