Somerset Ridge Vineyard & Winery

This past Sunday, Paul and I drove down toward Louisburg to Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery.  I had met Cindy, earlier this month at the Healthy Food and Good Wine fundraiser.  Cindy and her husband, Dennis, are amazing, and run their family owned vineyard with great pride.  Their hospitality and friendliness are unmatched.  To walk in the doors of their winery, is like walking into your own home.  Each person is greeted as if they are family, and are welcomed into the tasting room with open arms.
Cindy and Dennis, handcraft their premium wines from Kansas grown grapes.  Somerset is an amazing place, and I highly recommend a visit!  Their tasting room is open from 11-5pm Wednesday through Saturday, and noon to 5pm on Sunday.

Make sure to bring your friends along!  Paul and I plan on going as often as we can!
















Cindy and Dennis, it was so great to meet you both, and visit your beautiful vineyard.  I can't wait to come back!

Cortney and Matt :: Engagement

I know I've said this before, but I have the best clients in the world!  Matt and Cortney are no exception! I met them a few weeks ago, after they were referred to me by a bride whom I had met with a couple years ago.  It's always such an honor to be referred by others!

The moment I met Matt and Cortney, I knew they were going to be special... and a ton of fun!  They exceeded my expectations, and I had an absolute blast photographing their engagement session last Saturday!






















We began at the Plaza, and ended the session with a glass.... ummm... bottle of wine at the Celler Rat, located at 17th and Baltimore.  What a great place, I highly recommend it!






We hung out for a bit after our session, and I got to know Matt and Cortney even better as we shared stories, and opinions on life, relationships, and of course... good wine.  I feel so lucky to have met these two, and am so honored that they chose me as their photographer!  I truly treasure this opportunity!  Be sure to check out my FACEBOOK PAGE for more images from their session!

More Healthy Food and Good Wine!

Last Saturday, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend, and photograph the Healthy Food and Good Wine fundraiser for St. Joseph Medical Center.  It was a farm to table event which featured local producers, and restaurants.  The fundraiser also included an Iron Chef competition, which was sponsored by Somerset Ridge Winery, and featured the following chefs:

Jasper Mirable, Jr. of Jaspers Restaurant
Michael Foust of The Farmhouse
Tate Roberts of EBT Restaurant



















Hungry yet?



Tate was the winner of the Iron Chef competition.  I'm sure the judges had a tough time deciding.  All the chefs did an amazing job!






Proceeds from this fundraiser are going toward enhanced imaging technology for patients with critical neurological diagnosis.  It is the goal and aim of St. Joseph Medical Center to provide the foremost in neurosurgical treatment opportunities.

Over 400 people were in attendance for this great event.  I am proud to have been one of them!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
