Holly D Photography - Napa Valley Wedding Photographer

Reflecting over the past nine years of my life, I can recall a time when taking pictures was just a hobby. Today I am so thankful and blessed to be able to do what I love, while feeling very privileged to help couples preserve their happiest moments in still images and photo albums. Every girl has a dream for her special day and I've been honored to live my dream by documenting her dream day.


The first thing that I love about meeting new couples is hearing their story. Whether I'm photographing a couple that has just became engaged, or a couple that is looking for a wedding photographer, there's nothing more beautiful than hearing how two perfect strangers met or the romantic way he swept you off your feet as he got down on his knee to ask you to be his wife.

And that's why I loved Deondra and Michael's photo shoot so much. After Deondra and Michael had dated for some time, he knew she was the one and he planned a trip to Lake Tahoe, where he had every intention on proposing to her in the most beautiful location! However, the timing of receiving the ring didn't work out in his favor, so he improvised. They had a great trip and when they came back home (after he picked up the ring from the jeweler), and as she was getting ready to go out to run errands, he intimately asked her to put a different ring on that day, in place of the ring she usually wore. In that moment, he handed her the ring and proposed by asking her if she would marry him and of course she said yes!

I loved this photo shoot so much because the weather was so beautiful in the Napa Valley at the Castillo di Amorosa Winery with the beautiful vineyards as a gorgeous backdrop. I loved the way that Deondra and Michael paired their outfit choices together which made these photographs look so timeless and classy!

As I am photographing, one of my favorite things to do is make my couple genuinely laugh and have a great time. It really shows through the photos how happy you are to be with the love of your life. It is a privilege for me to photograph this beautiful moment in time so I want to make it as comfortable and flowable as possible. What I truly take joy in is seeing an amazing couple have the time of their life!
