Napa Valley’s Benzinger & Kunde Wineries Engagement Photos | Vania & Jason

Vania and Jason hail from Chicago, but absolutely love the Napa Valley.  While in town for Thanksgiving with Jason’s family, they chose the Benzinger Family Winery and Kunde Family Estate as their locations for engagement photographs, and I think you’ll agree their choices couldn’t have been more spectacular.

If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to have photographs taken during a storm, this is it.  Many couples believe they need perfectly clear weather for beautiful photographs, but stormy skies often make for dramatic images.  We spent the afternoon together ducking in and out of the rain, having fun, and loving every minute.
