It was such a lovely day when an email from Sarah of Sarah Schweyer Photography popped in my inbox. She was inviting me to participate in a beautiful styled shoot she was putting together. As a photographer – this is like being invited to an all you can eat buffet of your favorite food. The team put together for this shoot was incredibly talented and I was so overjoyed to have been able to attend this shoot & capture it. There’s a movement in the photography industry that values community over competition. I love that so much – some of my very best friends are fellow photographers that I met when I became a wedding photographer!
It’s amazing what a group of creatives can put together when they get to dream up a wedding. I completely identified with so many elements of this European-esque wedding shoot. The colors, the old world feel, all the fantastic looking food elements – it was like a feast for the eyes! This was also my first visit to Yolanda Ranch and I was so impressed. This gem of a wedding venue in Yolo county was wonderful to shoot at. (It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a historic house).
Enough of my gabbing, and let me get on to the beautiful shoot! Hope you enjoy and feel as inspired as I did! See the end of the post for full list of vendor credits.
