A Love Story | Castello di Amorosa Winery

This old world charm inspired style shoot was one of the most interesting, enjoyable and memorable shoots. Loved Mariel Hannah‘s unique aesthetic. Her and Abbie, her husband, are the most humble and greatest people to work with as well!

A big thank you to all the participating vendors who made this day (with lots of unexpected surprises) possible. One of them being that the model we booked couldn’t make it. I was just about 20m away from the venue when the stylist/planner Reagan called and updated the news. Luckily Reagan found a replacement but we were still 1.5hr behind to start the process. And to make it more fun, our replaced model has short hair, about a little longer than chin length. I do not know how I had a box of chestnut brown hair extensions with me in the kit, but I did and turned her hair into longer, darker, tight curls hair. I’ll include some iphone shots to show the “in the making” journey here as well.
