A while back I had the opportunity to join Sam Hassas as a second photographer during his coverage of Jessica and Cory’s wedding at the Clos LaChance Winery in San Martin California. You can view Sam’s coverage of the wedding HERE. It was an enjoyable day watching the master work, and working along side him. My day started with coverage of the guys getting ready at the hotel.

Besides being a beautiful and joyful wedding to cover, my coverage netted me two awards in the ISPWP quarterly contests. The photo of the garter toss earned 6th place in the Decisive Moment Category for 2009 Winter quarter contest. While the picture of the junior bridesmaid taking a photo placed 6th in the Framing the subject category for the Spring 2010 contest.

  1. Keith, there is so much great work here. I bet the couple were over the moon with their wedding photos. They must of had a hard time choosing the images for their wedding album.

    Absolutely gorgeous photography! What a great setting for a wedding. We have some vineyards outside Washington DC but we’ve got a couple months before we’ll be seeing leaves.
