The Proposal

Michael and Ariel's engagement day September, 13 2012 Overlooking the Lancaster Estate, Michael surprised Ariel with a stunning ring, and she said yes* In from New York the couple were enjoying early fall in the Wine Country. It was on to a private tasting in the Library, before a picnic on the grounds. We grabbed some pictures along the way.

Sarah & Craig Engagement session

Sarah & Craig wanted to shoot their engagement session at Craig's old school, Santa Rosa High. Now living in the South Bay, the couple have set a fall date for their gorgeous Sonoma County wedding.

Both warmed right up to the camera and within minutes were laughing, joking and moving around. Time flew and this was a session that I didn't want to end, two hours passed, we had a collection of great images and sore faces from all the smiles. Making our way through the Junior College Campus and using the fantastic collection of sculptures as props. We chased the sun before the couple headed for dinner Sonoma county engagement sessions are spontaneous and fun events. Especially when your out with Tibidabo photography.

Liat & Ryan

It was Liat’s birthday and we headed for Julliard Park. The sun was setting on a gorgeous day. Ryan and Liat spent the whole day together, so squeezing me in for a quick photo shoot on the way to dinner sounded just the ticket. Ryan , a very talented artist, is someone I met through the local art community here in Santa Rosa: the SOFA district; and through him I've met the lovely Liat. They are heading North to tie the knot later in the year, as they are recently engaged.Together they design and install gardens, create landscapes and everything in between. The current exhibit at the gallery of Sea & Heaven has a great painting by Ryan. Looks like there are a few opportunities to come out and support the local art community and its artists.
