Sunstone Winery Masquerade Shoot | Santa Barbara Wedding Photography
What an amazing experience we had. Thursday June 21st, we headed to Sunstone Winery for a “Masquerade” themed styled shoot. Josh and I put these shoots on for other photographers and they are called Couture Clicks. The reasoning is simple.. we want photographers to be able to shoot for themselves and by piecing together a shoot of this magnitude it gives them an opportunity to participate in something they might not ordinarily be able to be involved with. We do all the set up, they arrive shoot and have awesome images.
This particular shoot I had been planning for awhile. I LOVE the Masquerade theme from watching movies such as labyrinth and Phantom of the Opera. I knew I wanted to put a modern twist on this style and the backdrop of the GORGEOUS and STUNNING Sunstone Winery was the perfect location. Not only is it a sprawling vineyard and winery, it has a jaw dropping Tuscan Villa on site. The owners live on the top floor but they allow the bottom to be used for events such as weddings or shoots such as this. Anna and Bion are so incredibly gracious and the care and details they have put into not only the winery but the Villa is 2nd to none.
For this shoot we had many models but this particular couple stuck out to me and I spent a majority of the time that I did shoot with them. They had just gotten engaged a few days prior so the emotion and feelings you get from these are 100% real. They make a gorgeous couple and I am excited about the possibility of shooting their real wedding!!!
Enjoy the photos and be sure to visit the vendors who made this shoot possible, listed at the bottom!
Special thanks to all of our amazing vendors who worked tirelessly not only the day of the event but in planning and leading up to it. Your participation made this event a success and we are VERY thankful for all you have done.
