• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Allegra and Mark, Married! | Paradise Ridge Winery Wedding

You are in for a visual and emotional feast everyone, this could not have been more perfect wedding. The weather up in Santa Rosa was perfect for this Paradise Ridge Winery wedding. All the stylish touches you see in this wedding stem from Allegra’s exuberant spirit and fun approach to life (when I saw her Pinterest boards I knew that it was going to be an amazing wedding!). Mark first fell for her when she ordered bacon with a side dish of maple syrup, and so they had a dessert buffet that featured bacon.

Mark wore a John Varvatos suit. Sharp.

Art deco and glittery jewelry

I love it when brides pick dresses that seem made JUST for them. Allegra’s Sue Wong dress is such a dress – from the beading down to the ostrich feathers

Don’t forget the deodorant!

We had a really great opportunity to do a dress reveal for Allegra’s dad

Seriously working it, this woman!

First Look

Giggling flower girls. So darling

They had a beautiful unplugged wedding ceremony full of beautiful readings, tears, and heartfelt vows

The reception continued the art deco theme with art deco escort cards, luscious flowers in silver urns (my favorite), dinner dahlias, and plenty of eucalyptus. Great job ETC Designs!

Sunset photos. If you can find some time during your wedding, I highly recommend sunset photos. Also, big thanks to Jenny at Baciami Events for coordinating this wedding flawlessly

I’m a foodie. I love it when my clients are foodie people too

Did I mention that the dessert bar had dessert inspired by bacon?

This photo features several of my Booth classmates dancing to our class song – Taio Cruz’s Dynamite

Thank you Allegra and Mark for being so very thoughtful and for having me at your wedding! Your wedding reflects your hospitality and your fun personalities, and thank you guys so much for the birthday card as well!
