This beautiful Castello di Amorosa Engagement Session, captured in California’s stunning wine country was just too magical! It truly felt as though we were traipsing through the vineyards of Tuscany with that stunning castle creating such a perfect backdrop for the shoot. I had visited this vineyard before, but this time was my first time photographing clients there and, I have to say, I am really looking forward to heading back there soon! It was truly so fun to scout for locations and adventure around the property with these two. We ended up finding an amazing-looking ancient chapel, which was a little off the beaten path, and the images captured there were among some of my favorites. The light coming through that little window was just unreal. Wait until you see it!
Laura is such a fashionable client and chose this picture-perfect tired swiss dot maxi dress from Nasty Gal for the session. I have had so many clients since ask about it and try to find it for themselves! It really worked beautifully with the backdrop. I’ll be sharing Laura + Blake’s stunning wine country wedding, which took place at Calistoga Ranch, very soon, so definitely keep an eye out for that, especially if you’re thinking of getting married in the Napa area!
This dress had the best movement with the slight wine country breeze! I’m often asked by clients for ideas on what to wear for their engagement session and I always provide in-depth insight into what will photograph best and look incredible in our shoot location.
Check out the light we captured in this old stone chapel on the Castello di Amorosa property!
