These two Texans were just completely charming to photograph during their Sonoma proposal. I had no doubt this would be the case since I first spoke with Case’s mom and she was just the essence of southern charm over the phone.

Case had it in his mind to propose on their vacation to Sonoma together and loved the charm of Gundlach Bundschu for the big moment. This is one of my personal favorite portrait locations and I was excited to return there for another proposal. Case orchestrated the perfect plan of arranging a car for a day of wine touring, with extra time at GunBun of course. Paige was blissfully unaware, excited only for a day of tasting Sonoma wines.

We had great luck with winter weather. The sun was shining, and so was Paige after she said yes to Case outside the tasting room doors. You can see the excitement in their eyes to begin this new, exciting adventure together.
