The Nella Terra Cellars wedding we photographed on Shannon and Kayhan’s special day had had everything we love about photography. This relatively new venue is located just 20 minutes from San Jose in Sunol. The setting was specifically designed for wedding celebrations and we’ve been looking forward to seeing this new wedding venue for a while now.

We love to get to know our couples and it was great to find out that Shannon and Kayhan work together, just like us. Shannon told us that they love natural light photos and they are looking for photographers who are not going to be intrusive. Check and check! :)

There was a Persian ceremony that included a beautiful sofreh and their dinner reception took place inside of the Aztec tent. This wedding had emotions, dancing, and plenty of time for natural portraits. We loved covering their beautiful day!

Thank you so much for your Yelp review, Shannon! We appreciate your kind words:

“Service: Like all of the wedding vendors, it was difficult to decipher which photographer to choose (especially when you don’t know anything about photography, and all the photos start to look the same). We met with several photographers before meeting Mike and Nat, but we weren’t swept away, and we wanted to be as it was one of the larger expenses. I chose to meet with Mike and Nat based on their yelp reviews and was impressed by how many awards they’ve won. Our meeting with them was the best one as they are warm and professional. They don’t pressure you into any services (they tell you that you can decide at any time). They even invited us over for dinner for us to get to know one another. I would recommend an engagement shoot if you can afford it, as it makes you more comfortable on the day of (I felt a little awkward during the engagement shoot, but by the time the wedding day rolled around we felt at ease, and I feel the pictures show that).

Quality: My friends who I shared our photos with raved about how good they were. Mike and Nat have a synergy that allows them to capture a full complement of beautiful formal and candid photos. What sets them apart is how innovative they are with the types of photos, backgrounds, poses, etc. and how well they capture light (I can definitely see how they won all of those awards!). We would definitely use them again for any family photos, events, etc.” – Shannon and Kayhan
