Sarah & Read | Stony Hill Vineyard | Wedding  |  St Helena, CA

G​ood friends and family, superb​ wine and ​delicious​ food and​ a gorgeous location make​ for a perfect wedding​! We had an amazing time photographing Sarah & Read’s wedding at Stony Hill Vineyard in St. Helena, California​. Stony Hill is famous for its delicious and balanced Chardonnay. Stony Hill​ was founded by Fred & Eleanor McCrea who planted the first grape vines on the 160 acre property in 1947. Today, they continue to produce elegant wines suitable for aging. Sarah is the McCrea’s grand-daughter. She represents the third generation of McCrea’s dedicated to continuing the families tradition of producing great wines. The family history of the wedding location made this day even more special. Take a look at their images below. Congratulations Read and Sarah!

I don’t normally post commercial work on my wedding site but I thought I’d share this very special shoot here.  I had an amazing time shooting the Teavana campaign for Starbucks and Oprah Winfrey in Seattle.  At the end of 2013 , Starbucks and Oprah announced a joint venture to co-create Teavana Oprah Chai Tea.  I photographed Oprah as she developed the tea with Teavana’s leading teaologist , Naoko Tsunoda.   It was inspiring to watch!   The images were shot in a very natural and organic style.  Oprah was  incredibly down to earth.  I feel very fortunate to have worked with such an inspiring woman.   This shoot was one of the highlight of my career thus far.  Take a look at Teavana’s website, and look at some of my favorite images below.

SCOTTI & BOB | ALPENTAL MOUNTAIN, WA | ENGAGEMENT SESSION

The mountains have always been an incredibly inspiring and relaxing place for me. When Scotti and Bob told me they wanted to take their engagement photos in the snow, I was thrilled! I had a great time working with them and meeting their family. Alpental Mountain, located in Washington was a perfect choice for their engagement session. Take a look at their stylish snowy engagement session below.

2013 was an amazing year for Rubin Photography!  We had weddings and photoshoots in 6 different states, across California from Napa to Los Angeles, and in destinations including Maui, Hawaii.  We begin 2014 grateful for all of our incredible clients!   Thank you all for the privilege and honor of capturing some of the most important moments of your lives.  Happy 2014!

2013 was a great year for the commercial photography side of our business as well.  From magazine covers to celebrity shoots,  it was by far our busiest and most successful year!  Perhaps the greatest moment of the year was a shoot for Starbucks Corporate which included a very special guest….Oprah!
