Elopements in beautiful Napa Valley, California

Elope in Napa Valley California

It’s been such a pleasure of mine to edit the thousands of images I have taken of couples who have decided to elope in Napa Valley California. I capture all of the images in color and then during the editing process. I choose images to convert to black and white and then create a separate gallery of for the two of you enjoy. We don’t see many black and white images these days. It warms my heart when my couples who choose to elope in Napa Valley California let me know how much they love their black and white images. They have mentioned that they are “timeless”, “enduring”, “everlasting”. Those are the same words and emotions that I would use to describe black and white images.

After you receive the collection of color images, you can request that I convert additional images to black and white. You can turn any of your weddings images into a work of art for your home or office by having me convert it to black and white for you. I then send you a black and white image that you can send to a custom photo lab for printing.

It’s great that many couples are recognizing the immemorial quality of black and white images once again. It has become very popular in the past two years. Some couples are asking about whether I can shoot their elopement with film rather than digital. Perhaps it’s time to dust off my old film cameras and shoot and wedding on film once again. Stay tuned as that may be right around the corner.
