Leal Vineyards Hollister Wedding


Tiffany & Todd were not about to let a pandemic get in the way of their Happily Ever After! Their immediate families joined them for a beautiful summer micro wedding at Leal Vineyards in Hollister.  Although their celebration was not at all what these two originally had in mind, it still ended up being a joyful, romantic, and might I say- epic wedding day tucked into the rolling hills, vineyards, and summer roses.

About The Couple

This pair has been through a crazy few months. If you don’t already know from their engagement session post– Todd and Tiffany have been in a long-distance relationship for quite some time. Todd was camped out in Boston, finishing a fellowship. The plan was for him to finish the program, and head back for the wedding so that they could start their lives together.

I’m sure you can imagine the stress they must’ve been under not only trying to plan a wedding while living across the country AND during a pandemic, but also trying to see each other during a time when it’s not safe to travel PLUS trying to setup their first home here in California together. Talk about a triple whammy! Todd managed to return safely home just one week before the wedding and the pair quickly moved into their home mere days before their celebration. Poor Tiffany had a few bumps and bruises come wedding day from moving boxes! I pray they can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing they are married under the same roof, pandemic or not.

Tiffany & Todd

Tiffany and Todd- thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding day. I know life has been so crazy for you both. As if a long-distance relationship and moving during a pandemic wasn’t already difficult enough! But you took the lemons life gave you and made lemonade! Your strength and reliances inspires me. If you two can get thought this year, then I’m certain you can get through anything life may ever through you.

Tiffany, I won’t forget how magnificent your smile was as you walked down the aisle towards Todd. Even though you two had already seen each other for the First Look, you are still glowing with joy!

Todd, don’t even get me started on those precious vows! Oh my gosh friend, I was tearing up behind my camera! It’s clear from your spoken promises that you and Tiffany have been through so much and deserve to finally have your Happily Ever After.

Thank you again for the honor of witnessing and documenting you two tying the knot. I am so excited to see ya’ll again next year where we can hopefully party it up without face masks. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Hayano!!

Thank You!

Client’s Review: “ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Corinna is a must-book photographer for any wedding or special event. She wonderfully captured the beautiful memories of us at our Engagement session and on our special day. She was one of the most kind and accommodating people we’ve ever worked with. Corinna was so bubbly and energetic which made it easier for us to relax and enjoy our photoshoots. She was very professional and made everything easy for us, even during a pandemic!!!

We sought her services when we were searching for a photographer who could capture a bright and dreamy look to our wedding. Corinna provided an amazing value by covering so much for our Engagement and Wedding days at such a reasonable price range. Once we met her for our Engagement session, Corinna had a cheerful and kind personality which made us love working with her. You could tell how passionate she was in her work and the quick turnaround of her astonishing photos confirmed we had made the correct choice.

She remained in constant contact with us throughout our wedding planning and when the pandemic struck causing us even more difficulty for our wedding day…Corinna already had a plan. She was quick to devise a plan to capture everything we had hoped for on our “new” wedding schedule and remained as accommodating as ever. We had decided to have a “Minimony”/”Microwedding” celebration with only our immediate family members to create a safe environment for all. Corinna and Sarah came prepared to respect the social distancing restrictions, but still allowed us to capture the important moments of our wedding day. We were always asked permission before proceeding with group photos to ensure comfort levels were met. Once again, it attributed to how thoughtful and kind Corinna and her staff were throughout the entire process.

HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Corinna was a true “diamond in the rough” and has provided us with the lasting memories we dreamed of on our wedding day. If you are looking for a wedding or special event photographer, please look up Corinna as you will not be disappointed. We would go back to her again 💯 out of 💯 times if we had the chance…and we will when she will cover our 1-year Anniversary celebration when we (hopefully) celebrate with all of our family & friends in 2021!”
