The neon lights were mesmerizing as we twisted and turned up and down the alley ways of Tokyo at night. We wandered into the tallest of buildings for shopping and cocktails and in the alley ways we found doorways that led to secret underground restaurants. The streets were colorful, chaotic and wonderful.  I wandered with such big heart eyes soaking it all in that I often forgot to take photos. Sign of a great trip, right?!

    Catherine Heigle - Amazing photos! How do you take photos with such colors and contrast? Tokyo is among the most amazing cities in the world and, of course, is one of my dream destinations to visit. 🙂ReplyCancel

La Crema at Saralee’s Vineyard | Windsor, CA

I was recently asked to photograph the new La Crema tasting room at Saralee’s vineyards for a feature in SFGate.  I have been a huge fan of La Crema wines for a long time so this was such an honor to be a part of! If you find yourself in wine country, I highly recommend a tour and tasting here. The views are stunning and the wine is delicious.
