I’m thrilled with this recent shoot in Tuscany with Jill Lafleur and her styling on this Italian bridal gown Inspiration editorial. A Villa Borgo Santo Pietro Wedding would be an incredible setting. Enjoy!
With much excitement we are proud to announce L’Arte del Martrimonio, a luxury photography and design workshop being help November 11- 15 on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. Brought to you by Alchemy Fine Events, we are offering photography students the chance to learn under the talented shutterbug Jana Williams, and myself. And designers and planners will get to learn under the direction of Vanessa Van Wieren of Alchemy Fine Events with beautiful styling and florals by Krista Jon from Archive Rentals. In addition to these creative talents we are also very excited to announce that Rebecca Crumley, photo editor of The Knot Magazine will be there to instruct, critique, share trend forecasts and talk about how to get published in this competitive market.
Students will be staying at the luxurious Hotel Imperiale and shooting at the incredible Villa Passalacqua, vacation home to Elton John, Victoria & David Beckham to name a few, in addition to outdoor and lake locations. Student’s will get to work with each teacher in smaller groups as well to learn not only technical skills but also how to communicate more clearly with each other as the designer photographer relationship is crucial. We will also be offering specialized breakaway groups such as boudoir shooting with Jana and portraits with myself while planners and designers will be able to talk about the details the clients love, styling tips and tricks, and walking through the creative process with the ultimate goal being client success; and of course, getting published! Students will get to work with an incredible level of talented models and couture fashion designers such as the swoon-worthy gowns by Galia Lahav and other beautifully crafted works of art.

This sweet couple I had a chance to shoot with comes frequently to Italy and we spent some time with them documenting their favorite locations they frequent as they get away while on vacation. Most of these photographs are from the Chianti area in northern Tuscany. Just south of Florence is the mountains of tuscany that separate it from Siena. Tuscany has so many sweet little hidden spots to explore and shoot! Perfect for an engagement shoot. Enjoy. Part two of the shoot here (here).
Congrats Robyn & Chris! A Savvy Event brought this black and white wedding to an incredible level. The historic roots of this Sonoma Sebastiani family was evident in much of the details and emotion of the day. Beginning with perfect northern California weather in the Sonoma Valley, sweet light & a lovely Private estate to be at, and ending with a wonderfully sweet group of friends, everything made this event extraordinary!
