zach & kiele ~ hopland

When Zach contacted me about shooting his and Kiele’s wedding in Hopland in Northern California a couple of days before new years eve, there was never any doubt I would shoot it. Zach wrote me an amazing letter, telling me his and Kiele’s story, how they met, what they’ve been through and the personal loss they’ve suffered. It’s was a story of love and sorrow, of friends and family coming together, of joy, laughter and tears. But more than anything it was a story of love. I asked my good friend Nirav to come along and capture it with me.

awesome clicks, brother – clear eyes – full heart – can’t lose

Great images. I love all the oak trees and atmospheric shots. You get a real sense of place.

Jag har följt dig några år nu och jag längtar till varje inlägg du gör. Även den här gången blir jag tagen och rörd så att det känns i hjärtat, du är en sådan talangfull person som kan förmedla känslor i dina foton och det är en stor gåva! <3 Tack!
May the sun Always shine on you! <3
Susan

Your posts are like antique and unique jewels. It’s very strange see one appear on direct, like a post of any other photographer.

Now that is one epic wedding. Top work Jonas.

Adore the wide shot of the ceremony with the tree coming up out of the tent. Stunning! It was framed so perfectly.

Absolutely wonderful set of images- the image of the groom with a tear in his eye is one in a million! Magnifique!

Amazing work as always! Love it!

No tengo palabras para decir lo que me describe cada imagen. TODO ES BELLO Y SENSIBLE. Enhorabuena.

Bello reportaje!!! Bellas Imagenes!!! Felicitaciones!!!!

Awesome! Is a pleasure to enjoy with your images. Love it

cracking stuff – the story you’ve told is very impressive

Beautiful location! I always end up tearing up when I look at the work you do. The emotion comes through in bounds. Great job!

Legend. Love you Jonas. You never disappoint. Incredible imagery

Awesome work as always. Is that one of the actors from The Big Bang Theory I spotted towards the end?

holy shit Jonas! absolutely golden!

So yeah. This is pretty freakin’ good.

beautiful story. I love all the emotion. I got to the first shot of the groom and thought, “wait…how do I know him?!?!” ;-)

HOLY HELL! UM WOWZERS. Blowing minds Jonas x

Love seeing you travel into my usual wedding stomping ground and creating epic imagery… no matter where you are Jonas! Beautiful.

Also, doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge fan of Zach Gilford :)

Looking at your gorgeous, deep and meaningful imagery keeps reminding me of something Sting once said about photography:
“It takes a rare photographer to get behind that mask to reveal the vulnerable soul behind. I do not wish to give myself easy to the eye of a camera unless the person holding it is at risk, too. (Sting).
Mr. Peterson, you inspire me. Thank you.

Such an incredible reminder of what a great story teller you are Jonas. I adore them both as actors… what a sweet wedding.

Those photos are really great. They are gorgeous! Congrats Jonas!

Oh this is just so lovely. I adored the character of Matt Saracen on Friday Night Lights! Love love love these images.

After seeing this.. I want to get married, right now!

I love the compression of the tree in that black & white portrait…you or Nirav? Super clever! And you are quite the storyteller Mister Peterson :)

Beautiful pictures … and I just watched The River Why on Netflix yesterday – what a surprising treat for me. Thanks Jonas, you’re an inspiration.

Oh my gosh, I just went through this whole post swearing and kicking myself thinking that I knew the groom from somewhere but didn’t know where. Friend from college? No? Dated someone else I know? No. Then I saw the other comments, agh, Friday night lights, of course!!!!! Amazing stuff Jonas!

Wow! Whata set again! You guys rock!

What a set. You are quite the storyteller as Anushe quite rightly commented. I love the use of tilt shift on the dining room.

I’ve been rewatching some FNL this summer. Love me some Dillon peeps. Beautiful images of a gorgeous couple. And Landry’s lady is a lovely! ;-)

Wow!!! Wonderful point of view!

This is my kind of wedding. Love it.

I’ve never seen Lost and it doesn’t matter. Incredible emotion presented. Thanks for sharing it with us.

In these photos is everything.

wow. i’m such a big fan of your work. i didn’t actually know these actors but i think it helped in seeing the beauty of their day beyond the recognition of their work.

you, my friend, are an inspiration. love following your blog and witnessing your art. it is stunning.

Wow. You and Nirav did an amazing job capturing some incredibly emotional photos. Well done.

Once again I am left speechless by your work. just wow.

Holy sweet Jesus Hot damn. This is one of your best. Damnnnnn.

really nice! very warm and emotional! Great photos Jonas! Big fun of your work

YEAY ZACH! Congratulations!!!! … Amazeballs Jonas.

Awesome! Fantastic images and great moments! Texas Forever.

Full of so much love and deep emotion. Zach’s expression seeing his bride, amazing. So good. Love your work, Jonas.

I love your vision of Napa, and how the simple elegance of the wedding and reception unfolded through the images. This is probably my new favorite of yours.

I felt like I was there! Beautiful, amazing photos captured

your photographs are emotion perfectly framed.

I’m not sure it gets any more beautiful than that. Stunning work.

Lovely photos, I wish I had hired you to do our wedding photos!! You captured fantastic moments that this gorgeous couple will have for many years to come.

Visual story telling at its best.

Great images Jonas, keep up this amazing work! you are surely inspiring many photographers around the globe. i’m one of them of course.

This was a really cool wedding to watch unfold. It felt like a scene from Friday Night Lights! So wonderful!

That was such good story telling. It felt so very personal. Really good art.

Boom! Amazing amazing work JP

very impressive as always, what a venue and lovely couple!

This is so beautiful. My favourite photo is always the one of the groom looking at his bride for the first time <3

So beautiful! Another FNL fan dropping in to say CONGRATS!

These are beautiful, and thank you (and the wedding couple) for sharing these photos.

Congratulations! God bless!

great pictures…congrats!

Absolutely stunning. I’ve never seen wedding photos this real, this honest, or this beautiful. I’m speechless.

You always find the coolest trees! Love :)

The Owl in flight pretty much sums up this set of images.

It’s always such an experience to view one of your weddings…I leave happy and inspired, every time.

Love the way you can capture an invisible feeling…

Stunning shot of the groom as the bride walks down the aisle, simply stunning. Just awesome photos :)

Your photos are awesome!
you are my idol! I am inspired by your photos!

Simply stunning Jonas!

I never know what to say, I think its because I’m constantly speechless. This is breath taking. Once again asking what the music is?
Thank you.

Love the feeling and emotions. An amazing story. Great song too.

Beautiful Jonas, so heartfelt and touching..

The groom is a friend of my niece. Please do not let my 17 year old see this! Otherwise, her “wedding plans” will then include flying a photog in from Australia and substitute Napa for her current Martha’s Vineyard “plans.”

Amazing work!

This is so amazing and beautiful.

For anyone asking the music is Justin Vernon of Bon Iver covering ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ by Bonnie Raitt.

Jonas, I have to compliment you on that one. You did an amazing job at capturing all thos precious moments and the story of their day. It’s so nice to see some not overly-styled detail shots, too. This wedding has a very natural feel. LOVE IT!

The best photos I’ve ever seen of an event. Pure love, pure glory, pure…
I admire your work their work, a match made in paradise.
Incredible.
Thank you

Beautiful; I love the last 4 dancing shots especially. So intimate; beautiful.

Beautiful pictures! You are officially my inspiration for wedding photography. I don’t take the conventional/perfect pictures but convey a better feeling to me, than crisp, sharp photos, although there’s nothing wrong with those. I have a similar eye as you and your assistant and thank you for the motovation to continue to hone my skills (especially in editing). I don’t know who these newlyweds are, but your photography makes one feel like they were there, dancing, celebrating and sending best wishes for long, happy life to the beautiful bride and groom. Thank you.

Rachel E. Johnson

Beautiful as always Jonas, gorgeous couple, gorgeous setting and lots of emotion, as you said, clear eyes – full heart – can’t lose :) Fantastic work xxx

Gosh, these are BEAUTIFUL! You are an amazing photographer. You captured the best moments, smiles, tears, colors. This is the most beautiful wedding I think I’ve ever seen. They genuinly look happy and so in love. Those tears in Zac’s eyes… Sweet man. Just such beautiful pictures. Congrats to the happy couple. I hope one day I have what you guys have. You are so cute! And to you, you have such an incredible gift. Great job!

Wonderful pictures :) super set of amazing photographs..specially during the actually wedding ceremony..well done.

Wow – these are the most stunning wedding pictures I have seen. Felt everything all the way here to Moscow. Thank you and to the lovely couple for sharing this with us.

Stunning, no doubt why they picked you to be their photographer. I love the light during the ceremony so beautiful.

Gorgeous imagery of a couple clearly in love…I feel i attended this wedding by the emotions that were captured on this very important day in their life…Lots of mood & atmosphere in the photos…The bride was stunning and the apparent joy she and the groom were experiencing was evident in in every frame…Jonas your vision is photographing the feeling and not many can capture feelings as well as you have….I love it!
Blessings,
Elena

I agree completely with what Elena Hernandez said. Such a feeling of inclusion in these photos, like I was actually there! The emotions captured from the happy, obviously deeply in love couple made me cry! Everything about these photos is sheer perfection. This is what all photography should be. You should be so proud!

Incredible and beautiful. The emotion was tangible. l welled up when l saw that image of Zach with a tear in his eye when he saw his beautiful bride. Powerful images that will be passed on down generations of this family.

Ahh! I’m obsessed. Probably one of the most stunning weddings ever! And it doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom are both on my two favorite shows! Geez. So pretty.

what lovely photos. the one w/ the tear in the eye, and the last of the snuggly dance photos – both got me.

You are not only a talented photographer but also a talented writer.
You should write a book!? Beautiful pictures:)! Thanks.

Landry FTMFW!

Hi Jonas, Truly inspiring man work! I keep visiting your blog to learn from you. i am interested in your opinion about my last session, Grzegorz

Your photos were wonderful, lovely, evocative, and made wish I could’ve crashed the party. Lovely shots of the groom (like when Zach saw Kiele in the gown), who sometimes gets shortshrift.

Thank you (and those involved) for sharing.

Great coverage as usual Jonas. They had chosen such a lovely setting for their wedding ceremony.

breathtaking. just breathtaking. these images capture what was certainly an amazing day. thank you for sharing these jonas.

Storytelling and images off the charts as usual JP :)

WOW guys that was AMAZING! I don’t know Zach & Kiele or their story but through your images I felt the emotions as if I did. I follow both you and Nirav and I just wanted to say what an incredible team you make….thank you.

This wedding brought tears to my eyes. You have such a gift for photography and using it as a link to bridge the people who were there with the people viewing these images from afar. I wasn’t at this wedding, but I feel like I was. Every amazing emotion was captured. The groom tearing up as his bride walked down the aisle; the bride trying to hold back her own tears at the same moment; and the joy and relaxation written all over their faces a few images later when they are standing up there, together. This is beauty, perfectly captured. Thank you for sharing this day with the world.

So I saw a local photographer comment on Jonas Peterson’s photography work and I did
what any curious person does-GOOGLED YOUR NAME!
I’m so glad I did. Just went thru these wedding photos. Obviously, I have never met this couple, but their story told by you brought laughter and tears to my morning in viewing the anticipation, love, solemnity, joy and festivity everyone experienced!
Thanks for this…

Best,
Kathy Keller

So beautiful. Top shelf.

This is amazing. I’m inspired every time I look at your photos.

Beautiful pictures, beautiful wedding! I’m very happy for Zach and Kiele! Congrats from a brazilian fan! Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose! ♥

The details, the tones, as always are superb. We love the party photos.

These photos brought tears to my eyes….

Jonas, great photos again, but I wonder some of the photos are the same as in Nirav’s blog?

Azlan: Yes, Nirav second shot this wedding for me.

love the black and white images. have you tried the black and white Agfa Scalia filters on the new VSCO Film 4 pack? I think that’s my new favorite black and white set.

Jonas, thanks for clarifying. Great work!

Great ambience in these wedding photographs!

The quietude between them. That is what I see when I look at these images. Magnificent.

You have an eye for trees! Beautiful work.

Amazing imagery… I particularly like that dress shot.

jonas – these are absolutely stunning. zach and kiele were beautifully captured in these moments – what a story you have told through your visual talents. it was a pleasure to meet you, even though briefly. we hope you will visit hopland/campovida again soon (not to be confused with napa btw.)

The light in your pictures is so soft and subtle. The bride and groom also look great together. A fab set of pictures and well done too no going through till so late in the evening.

Oh my god, Matt Saracen got married!

He was a smart man to chose you to photograph his gorgeous wedding. You did a splendid job. You don’t normally see weddings at that time of year and it makes me wonder why; you captured the quiet stillness of this pre-winter perfectly!

The tears filling up his eye when he see her… Oh my god! Absolutely beautiful!

Hi Jonas,

I just wanted to drop you a note and say that I have been a fan for some time and that your work has moved me time and time again. I began my career with a pretty dreadful view of “wedding photography.” A not so uncommon stance.

But today I have begun to offer this service entirely because you showed me that there was both art and something deeper – an honoring of two people – held within this practice.

My work is a long way off from yours, but I wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for your work.

I hope to see you running a seminar in my part of the world, as well! :)

Sean

beautiful work as usual!

Love it, the party looked awesome :)

Very beautiful, Jonas! Love the intimate feeling!

As usual stunning stuff.

Got some lovely wedding photos here. Some nice artistic shots. Very inspirational.

I assume Julie wasn’t invited. Awwwkward!

What a magical day! Fantastic work Jonas

shots are amazing. You can feel the love, though I never witnessed their love story. It’s nice that they chose a location this intimate & close to nature.

This whole things makes me long for cool winter nights and cozy bundled up romance. Just stunning and so heart felt. Him in tears as she came down the aisle got me, as well as her wiping his tear during vows. Beautiful.

Jonas you are insane. In a good way of course. Stunning work as always.

I’ve been casually browsing for wedding dresses and I can’t get Kiele Sanchez’s dress out of my mind. Every dress I see I compare to hers! Jonas, do you by chance know the designer of her dress? Beautiful photos of a stunning wedding!

Found this blog a few days ago. Been open in my browser ever since! What an outstanding set of images. You have a great way of seeing things. Got me thinking more about how I shoot and will now be looking even harder for images that are not the status quo.

A story full of details. Congratulations.

The pictures are beautiful–that is beyond dispute. But does anyone else feel like jonas’s pictures are so somber and serious looking? Even the pictures of the bride smiling are really “heavy” looking to me. Just wondering if anyone else sees what I see. Still love the pics though.

Well, you are one of the best. I like your images a lot! I am happy that the tree from your logo came back home :)

Such beauty and emotion captured. Great storytelling too.

Those field shots *SWOON* just bliss to look at! xx

Great wedding pictures! Did you taste the moonshine in the picture? :D

[…] My good friend Jonas Peterson asked if I would help him document Zach & Kiele’s story. Thank you for having me Jonas and thank you to Zach and Kiele for welcoming us like we were family, being so incredibly kind hearted, and letting us into their lives.
