Here is the lovely couple Mallory and Steve in their Engagement Session. When I met them, I found out that Steve proposed to Mallory at the Castello di Amorosa, and when I realized that it was a castle I was excited...when I realised the castle was the same one that The Bachelor Brad had some dates ...I was VERY excited they decided to do their engagements there! Now I have to say...once there, I forgot ALL about that...the castle was SO beautiful!!!! I hope these first few pictures capture the beauty of it....but most of all I hope that the beauty of the relationship of this couple is what really stands out, that should show through no matter what the backdrop is!
OK so here it begins...the first few pictures we decided to take outside the castle just before the drawbridge....yes a drawbridge!!!
Next we very quickly took a few pictures right inside the castle doors...
These two pictures I think are my very favorite!!! It's all about Steve and Mallory!!! JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!
As you walk up to the castle there is a little pen of sheep with a hay bail...when Mallory mentioned she brought this second outfit (WITH THE BOOTS!!!) we all agreed it would be perfect for this area!!! Love this look on Mallory!
These next two cute shots was a very good way to get more of the castle in them!!!
These are just VERY cute!!!
This shot was Miss Mallory's idea...love it!!!
After about an hour at the Castello di Amorosa, we started back towards Sacramento and stopped off in Downtown Napa...this was my second engagement shoot here, love the location! And from a pure photographer's perspective the lighting is just awesome here!!! EVERYWHERE here!
Love this little area by the table. They are so cute together!!!
This is just about my favorite area here...the get to really be themselves...and it is so funny to photograph people trying on hats...the girls get sexy and the guys get silly..a silly and sexy they would tend to hold back doing anything else then trying on hats!!! I guess it's kinda like acting!!!
This is just pretty...
Anyone who knows me KNOWS I love BRICK WALLS!
This is cute little area along the colorful shops...
I love this wall...I get some simple BUT great shots here...love them!
Here is the last outfit change...such cute shoes...love these close moments...
Here are the shoes...
Gotta end with a jumping picture!!!
