Yountville Engagement | Rachel + Chris

Rachel and Chris had a blast during their Yountville engagement session with us.  They both live and work in San Diego, but their favorite place to visit is Yountville and Napa Wine Country, so during their session, we revisited those locations as if going on a double date with them.  We had fun as well.

Rachel grew up on a farm in Reno, Nevada, so she loves the outdoors.  During the session, Rachel told us that she and her mom both love tall grasses, and we happened to walk by a patch of tall grass as the sun was setting, so we took a series of photos at this spot… it was perfect!

And of course, when in Napa we have to take photos of and in the vineyard!

The grapes were almost ready to be harvested when we were there.  We tried a few of them and they were so sweet!  🙂

We also stopped by Hotel Villagio for the session as they have beautiful grounds!  The flowers were blooming and we couldn’t have asked for a better day for the shoot!

We also explored 3-acre The French Laundry Culinary Garden down the street.  For all of you who love food as much as we do, Chef Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry doesn’t need much introduction.  If you are lucky enough to score a reservation at the restaurant and have their Tasting of Vegetables, all of the vegetables come almost exclusively from the garden!

And of course, we ended the session with some sweet treats from Bouchon Bakery, another marvel establishment by Chef Keller!
