Lowell and Laura met and became friends through Lowell’s photography services at local wineries and through Napa Valley Life Magazine, where Laura serves as Editor. Always a fan of Lowell’s keen eye for capturing subtleties in his photographs, Laura fell in love with his photo of a single rose, which is displayed in magnificent glory on 601 Cellars Napa Valley Rosé wine label.
Downey is passionate about his community, where he has served on several nonprofit boards and been a strong advocate for the arts, social justice, and environmental causes.
