Garré Vineyard Wedding – Livermore Wedding Photographer

Livermore Wedding Photographer, Maria D Photography is based the the Tri-Valley East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. Available for weddings and other photography needs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.


I recently had the pleasure of photographing Gisela and Gabriel’s wedding at the Martinelli Event Center at Garré Vineyard in Livermore. I loved working with this adorable couple and wish them a lifetime of happiness together. Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post and view their wedding slideshow!

Their wedding venue has lovely views of rolling vineyard hills from the ceremony location, a large indoor hall and a spanish style courtyard for a beautiful outdoor reception.

This venue has a comfortable bridal suite where the bride and her bridesmaids got ready for the ceremony.


There is a separate space for the groom to dress as well ensuring the bride and groom don’t see each other until the ceremony.


The winery grounds offer many beautiful backdrops for wedding photos.


The courtyard was fantastic for a warm summer evening reception and a great place for a first dance as husband and wife.


No wedding is compete until the bride and groom make their grand exit. The double doors at Martinelli Event Center are perfect!

Meet The V Family | Santa Clara Photographer

Had the best time meeting the whole V Family for their photo shoot. All ten adults and eight kids! What a lovely family and I just love that these lucky grand parents have amazing daughter-in-laws who felt it was important to capture photos of the entire family. L.O.V.E. IT!

Nonna & Nonno


I really enjoyed chatting with Nonno (Mr. V.) as we walked from one location to another. He told me about his life and immigrating to America. A story so similar to that of my own grandparents it felt a little like Déja vu.

Fundraiser Photographer | Bay Area Event Photographer

I had a great time photographing the Step and Repeat at an Alamo Elementary School Fundraiser. The Event was held at the beautiful Round Hill Country Club in Alamo, CA. It was truly a red carpet event. More than 280 guests and nearly all of them posed at the Step and Repeat for a red carpet photo.

The fundraising  continued beyond the evening with a special fundraising photography program I offer. A portion of the sales from guest ordered photos was donated to Alamo Elementary School!
