Photographing a Sunstone Winery Wedding is an absolute dream.

I had the pleasure of working with an incredible team of wedding vendors and capture some really stunning photographs. This Tuscan-inspired colorful wedding photoshoot is what dreams are made of! If you’re looking for luxury wedding inspiration, this is one editorial you don’t want to miss!!

I made a challenge before this shoot to really focus on the film photos. I’m happy to say I couldn’t be more pleased with how the film turned out! One challenge with digital photography is shooting in harsher lighting which was everywhere for these detail photos and ceremony photos. Film loooves light! This made it so much easier to shoot in harsh light and still retain detail in these photographs. I love how film retains detail in the highlights!

I chose to shoot on Kodak Portra 800 film and I rated my film at 200. Photovision is my film lab and I absolutely love them! My scans rarely need to be edited at all and they sell my favorite film stock which is – you guess it! Portra 800! Really loving these photos and film scans of this Sunstone Winery Wedding!

Sunstone Winery Wedding Editorial

Dutton Ranch Inspired is literally the way I would describe this engagement session with Joseph & Rachel! As much as I love shooting at my usual locations and creating unique photos for our clients, it’s especially fun when we get to explore private ranches and spaces for a session. It offers a level of uniqueness […]
