A Love Story | Castello di Amorosa Winery

This old world charm inspired style shoot was one of the most interesting, enjoyable and memorable shoots I’ve done. Our photographer, Mariel Hannah, is extremely talented and if you visit her website, you’ll see how extremely romantic and unique her style is. Her and Abbie, her husband, are the most humble and greatest people to work with! Her style is very distinctive! When she approached me to be the makeup artist and hair stylist for this shoot, of course it didn’t take me long to say yes with enthusiasm. Please enjoy the photos below. 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 learned about this as I was about to arrive to Napa already. So, our planner and designer Reagan told me to go grab breakfast, and I did. Luckily Reagan found a replacement. However, she has very short hair, about a little longer than chin length. Luckily, I had a box of chestnut brown hair extensions with me in the kit. Her natural hair color was lighter, but I worked hard to make sure the extensions blend in nicely. Overall, it was one of my favorite shoots. I loved this amazingly creative team!
