Fine Art Bridal Photos at Southern California Villa | Santa Ynez, CA


We have some secrets to share with you today. We basically have a little Europe nestled away in Southern California. No, not Solvang, but close. The nearby Santa Ynez Valley is the perfect place if you want to do an over the top bridal photos session. Your wedding will fly by so much faster than you expect it to, we promise. So why not do something extraordinary to document the short time in your life?

The inspiration behind these Fine Art Bridal Photos at Southern California Villa

Our bride wanted something that was luxurious and felt like she was in Europe. Her gown was an exquisite chiffon layered french blue dress. Isn’t it amazing?! We love unique dresses that scream individuality and this dress most definitely does that. It was important to ur client that we have her fine art bridal photos at a european inspired venue. So that’s exactly what we did. With the stone walls it felt like we were in a castle in the French Countryside.

The inspiration behind the florals

I know this is what you really wanted to hear about. This curvy flower arch was intended to be the centerpiece of the room. It was one of the most relaxing environments I’ve ever photographed in too. The room had a pleasant floral sent that overwhelmed your nostrils as soon as you walked in. Really glad I wasn’t allergies to any of the flowers! But this unique arch drew from rainbows, fine summers days, and promises of a better tomorrow.

Final thoughts on these Fine Art Bridal Photos

We highly recommend adding a bridal photos session to your wedding collection. It gives us a chance to get to be comfortable in front of the camera, and gives you exquisite photos that you can pass down for generations to come. Good photography and a session that leaves you feeling full and loved is worth the investment! Plus your boo will ooh and ahh over how gorgeous you look too (we promise!)
