Record memories of the beginning of your love. This session focuses on the relationship as the centerpiece. Choose your location - SF or the Napa Valley, (my most popular), but I am open to going anywhere within 50 miles from Napa.
This special package is for die-hard romantics who want nothing more than a short and sweet, mid-week (Monday through Thursday) wedding ceremony with minimal guests.
Creating a relationship and setting up a timeline results in an a well planned & seamless wedding day. I am comfortable in different photography approaches; being invisible, showing you poses & how to be natural within them, setting up the scene like a movie director and posing your guests ...

Christophe Genty is known as a one of the top wedding photographers throughout Napa Valley, Sonoma, the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as other locations throughout the United States and abroad.
Born and trained in Paris, France, Christophe was still a student when he had his first photography exhibit in 1991. After his studies in optics, he dedicated himself to photography. His work as a laboratory photographer in the prestigious Albert Kahn Museum provided him with invaluable experience in photo composition and enhancement. This extraordinary experience created opportunities for him as a free-lance artist and allowed him to craft and master his unique style. Over the years, he has developed a diverse and highly acclaimed portfolio in wedding photography, portraits, commercial photography, and photojournalism.
Finding inspiration from his love of theater and music, Christophe captures our imagination with images that flow between reality and fantasy. Always sensitive to the rhythm and harmony of his subjects, his artistic passion is further expressed through an ability to capture and communicate sentiments that language alone cannot.
Today Christophe enjoys an exciting career including a very successful wedding photography business and a large portrait photography clientele. He resides in Napa, California with his wife Nancy and their son Raphael.
“What Christophe has to offer is hard to find, European sophistication, a touch of class… combined with a wonderful, warm, candid and giving personality and to top it off, a good sense of humor. He is professional and has the most amazing eye for esthetics… he can capture beauty like no other. I highly recommend him."
I can't really express how grateful I am to Christophe. He is energetic and you can really feel his enthusiasm when taking the photos. I love every single photo he took. The composition, the lighting and especially the photography style. My husband and I don't normally like to pose for photos but with his enthusiasm we did it so naturally and the photos came out beautifully!
I also like that Christophe arranged an engagement session with us several months before the wedding and it really helped us building confidence and trust in him. Meeting him before the wedding in a less stressful environment is great so he could know us more before the wedding.
Love love love the photos!!!
I truly don't even know where to begin! First, I should say that I don't typically take out time to do reviews, but this is without a doubt the best review I will ever give! My husband and I were married on February 17, 2017. We chose Christophe and his team to document our wedding. It was absolutely first class! From our engagement photos (which were a fantastic added bonus he gives!), to the professionalism of him and his team, to the gorgeous professional shots we just received of our wedding… They are hands down the best in the business! All of my shots of my husband and I and all of our guests are exquisite. We unfortunately had rain on our wedding day, but you never would have known with Christophe and his team! Each portrait depicted a special moment and memory in every single one. My only regret is that I can't work with him on a daily basis, but would recommend him above any other vendor I came across. I truly am so impressed by their work, support, and attention to detail. Trust me, do the right and bright thing...have Christophe capture YOUR day!
LOOK NO FURTHER!!!
We first came across Christophe Genty's obvious eye-catching work while searching Napa wedding venue/bride/decor pics on the internet. We then came to find he was the highly- coveted and chosen photographer of our Napa wedding planner. We knew at that point we would be in safe hands! Christophe Genty gave nothing but 5-star service from day one of inquiry, every second during our event, and even through many months after our special day has passed. He was an integral pillar of fun, laughter, excitement, comfort, style, and fluidity during the day we worked so hard for. We are forever grateful for his professionalism and true ownership of the art and beauty that made our wedding day so unique and breath-taking. We are still in awe as we look over memories. THANK YOU Christophe Genty!!!!
Christophe and his team were the best decision we made for our wedding. By far, the GREATEST photography!
We have nothing but positive things to say about Christophe and his artistic photography skills! He did our engagement photos at Castello di Amorosa Winery in Calistoga and our wedding photos at V. Sattui Winery in St Helena. We could not have asked for anyone better! Christophe and his team captured all the excitement and love in their creative photos and were a pleasure to interact with on our special day. They were extremely friendly with our guests and professional in every way. They are all phenomenal and I can't thank them enough for how accommodating and perfect they were. The whole process was fun and relaxed. We didn't feel a single bit stressed because they were always there to make us smile and lighten up the mood.
Christophe has an eye for beauty, is a true professional, has a genuine spirit and is very easy to work with. We would 110% recommend him to anyone looking for stunning wedding photography. His pictures are exquisite! There are so many epic shots that we are still having a hard time picking out our favorites for print.
Christophe was a wonderful addition to our wedding team and provided absolutely amazing and artistic photos that I am still staring at daily. I didn't want my day simply documented, I wanted intensely beautiful shots and candids as well - I certainly got all I was looking for.
Being in front of the camera is not my favorite thing (or my husband's) and he made us both feel very comfortable by providing us with great direction.
Not only this, but he was very communicative and easy to reach throughout the entire planning process. Any time I had a question, even the smallest little thing, I was met with a very positive attitude and my question was answered right away. This was so amazing throughout my stressful planning! ;) I was very impressed that he worked so closely with my wedding planner and other vendors to make sure that our day was perfect.Kenzie
If I had to do it all over again, Christophe would be the first vendor I would call. He should be the first one you call, too.
Thank you, Christophe!
"Christophe was unquestionable the best decision we made for the wedding (flowers, location, etc.). He was very responsive, took the most amazing pictures we've ever seen (both for engagement photos as well as the day of the wedding), provided all the best input to get us to take better pictures, yet still found a way to emphasize the attributes that made us "us". It was a great value for what we received. We found Christophe through his website and not a prior referral, but I promised him to openly and frequently refer him to anyone having a wedding in the Sonoma/Napa/San Francisco area. If he has ever received negative feedback, I would be dumbfounded. Best, Jeff"
