Location: Castello di Amorosa (4045 North Saint Helena Highway, Calistoga, CA 94515) & Brix Restaurant (377 St Helena Hwy Napa, CA 94558).
MT and Alan are a wonderful couple! They came with tons of energy, there was never a dull moment in their photo session. Everything from MT’s beautiful white wedding dress & Alan’s sharp tux to their elegant evening outfits all looked great.
Their personality brought along some really cute and creative ideas that we are proud to capture. To sum it up, the photos has elements of romance as well as fun and goofy!
The locations choices fit their style and personality perfectly. The Castello di Amorosa was a wonderful location, the entrance fees were $18 per person which included free wine tasting; but we ended up shooting mainly outside and didn’t step foot in the castle (although we did pay the fees.) The second location was behind the Brix Resturant where we could see the railroad tracks. They also had an outfit change for this session; we couldn’t ask for a better combination! The sun was at the right spot for photos at the railroad tracks, giving us nice soft sunset lighting. The railroad tracks belongs to the Napa Valley Wine Train (which is a great experience, if you haven’t done so yourself, you should certainly check it out!). This railroad tracks is also where we photograph another couple, Peony & Michael (http://dkweddings.net/engagement-peony-michael-peju-winery/).
In all, the photos had a dream fairy tail feeling to them, we are sure their family and friends will love these photos!
