Wedding Photographers and Videographers





Natural, Timeless, Narratives.

Sonoma Pictures is an award-winning photo & video studio led by husband and wife duo, Renzo Zanelli and Annika Beaulieu.  Our documentary approach takes inspiration from the West Coast Photographic Movement as well as the Neorealist film school which emphasized a balanced & clean style with the use natural light. Keeping in step with these great artists, we believe that beauty is already there in front of our cameras, all we have to do is take the time to look at it.   As photographers and filmmakers we work to remain as unobtrusive as possible with our subjects.  We have revolutionized event documentation by seamlessly integrating photos and video into a single process, allowing you to relax and enjoy your day. With just one camera crew we are able to produce the highest quality images (4k cinema coverage available) possible for all of your photo and documentary needs. 

After 14 years of professional experience, we love what we do. And we’re really good at it.    




Our Latest Shots





For more than 14 years I have been working as an internationally award winning filmmaker, photographer, editor, and producer. After studying cinema at the University of Chicago, I began a life long passion for producing films and photography in New York City. I am constantly inspired by the rich cultural traditions I encounter around the world through my lens and the amazingly creative ways people interpret the universal celebration of love. Throughout my career I have also won a numerous international film festival awards for my narrative and documentary work in Peru, Italy, China, Canada, the US, and the UK. I am borderline obsessed with cameras and all of the creative possibilities photography affords. I love collaborating with my clients and bringing fresh eyes to my cinematic lens.


I began my filmmaking and career, by accident, in Germany in 2003. I missed a flight, one thing led to another, and I ended up interning for the prestigious documentary film company, Oval Filmmemacher, in Berlin. I was hooked. Ever since I have dedicated myself to producing documentary films and photography around the world in place as far off as Africa, Peru, and Bangladesh. The films I have worked on have won awards at Sundance, Berlin, and Silver Docs. In 2008, I met Renzo Zanelli working on a feature film in Argentina. One thing led to another and I began a rich career collaborating with my husband in New York, using my deep knowledge and passion for documentaries to tell the oldest story in the world; how we fall in love.
