Reminiscing today on my last workshop at Sunstone Villa in Santa Ynez, California. It was such a joy and pleasure to teach budding fine art film photographers the art of female portraiture captured on medium format film. I can’t tell you how much teaching this workshop fueled me, as mentorship has always been a passion of mine.
With the help of an incredible team of wedding vendors, in part one, we dreamt up a story of a girl getting ready for her wedding day. She dons her Claire Pettibone robe during that calm and peaceful moment after just waking up. As the morning fog rolls away, the anticipation and excitement builds. Sporting her gorgeous Susie Saltzman ring, she gathers her Galia Lahav gown and her Bella Belle heels opening up the doors to a bright and sunny day – perfect for her Sunstone Villa wedding soon to come.
Don’t miss the video by the incomparable Anna Lord at the bottom of this post!
Stay tuned for more in Part 2. The entire shoot was seen on Style Me Pretty!
