Classy and sensational! That’s what I have to say about teaming up with the gorgeous Helwig Vineyards and Winery on their commercial shoot for a number of channels on television. Not only did I photograph some images of the bride and groom who were in the commercial shoot, but they asked me to jump in one of the scenes because they needed a burly bald headed dude with a beard to hold a glass of wine and just look cool (well, actually, that’s not all the way true). Kathleen Ahlers was gracious and asked if I would photograph some images during the shoot that day. If you’ve never been to the new Helwig Vineyard, you need drop in and check it out. Nestled away in the Shenandoah valley overlooking a breathtaking view is this American contemporary barn design with a maze of elegant lit caves, along with a large amphitheater for concerts, weddings, and other events. Their caves are marvelous and perfect for elegant weddings. Helwig is a great example of a business doing it well since they opened up last year. They were recently featured in Real Weddings magazine, among other publications, and are already booking weddings and putting on concerts.
I photographed Trevor and Tahnee for this shoot, and they were both more than kind, and allowed me to snap a few images of them during my time there. Here are some images I photographed from that day of Trevor and Tahnee!
