Western Sunset Styled Shoot - Amador Wedding Collaborative - Wedding Photography - Engagement - Amador, County
Our Western Styled Shoot was nothing short of a miracle shoot. The Amador Wedding Collaborative is a power team and if we could align our schedules more easily, we'd make this a serious, one stop business. We wrapped an afternoon shoot this same day, then hustled to get the Western Sunset Shoot ready and photographed. This shoot came close to the movement and bustle of a real wedding.
We chose Rancho Victoria Vineyard as our venue because their outdoor setting is beautifully cultivated, full of spring color, and is an indulgent rustic setting. There were even horses watching us as the sun went down. If I knew how to ride horses, I would have ridden one into the sunset myself.
Kristi designed with hues of orange, teal, and wood. She styled the table openly, with a cow-skin rug underneath for contrast. One of my favorite elements of the main centerpiece is the addition of butterflies. She is the magician that turned a run-of-the-mill western wedding into a fanciful ranch paradise. The bridal bouquet of preserved flowers is on another level.
Valerie is a pretty young woman with a dazzling smile, but Jenny O. brought out her stunning. Her up-do is lose and moving with flowers. She has a glowing, natural face with accented eyes and a shimmering pink lip.
I myself, will admit to creating the sunset in these images. By the time we arrived, the sun was heading beyond the horizon and we only got a few shots with natural light. Almost everything with the glow of the golden hour is created light. I saturated the colors in post.
