This colorful Villa Montalvo Engagement Photos Session was one for the books. We wanted whimsical engagement photos that had scenery that was whimsical ad romantic. We absolutely loved documenting this engagement session, and hope you enjoy it too!
Tucked away in the Saratoga Hills slightly outside of San Jose you’ll find this majestic venue that is perfect for your Saratoga Wedding or Engagements alike.
We had gone back and forth on locations for their beautiful session, and finally decided on Montalvo Arts Center. It is a nonprofit which does a lot of good for the community and also has stunning and impeccably kept grounds. You might feel like you’ve been transported to Italy or Lake Como, but we promise this is still in the Bay Area.
Our couple wanted a relaxed and romantic aesthetic that fit their personalities. We stuck with a neutral color palette to let the location shine and our bride-to-be had a beautiful pale blue dress with a simple little floral pattern. It fit the vibe really well of European Relaxed Glam and we are here for it.
Our groom-to-be wore a simple button up and khaki’s which suited him perfectly. We love that they picked a neutral palette which elevated the ambiance so much. We almost almost recommend to our couples to go with neutrals because a bold outfit (Like a bright red dress, or plaid can be really distracting from the romantic vibes that we normally go for.)
Ryan and Ana-Lisa plan on getting married in Mexico sometime next year. They want beautiful beach vibes and the Caribbean is the perfect spot for that. Wishing these babes the happiest of lives together! Also if you loved this list, be sure to check out our list of the best spots in San Jose to do engagement photos for more inspo.
And thanks for reading! We hope you love this session as much as we loved shooting it!
