Castello di Amorosa Napa Engagement Photography

Castello di Amorosa Engagement Photography
Photographer:  Charleton Churchill

I drove to Calistoga to photograph one of my gracious engaged couples with probably one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen in the Napa Valley. Jennifer and Jason are a New York couple who flew out to the Castello di Amorosa for some engagement photos. They called me early on to capture their pre-wedding photos, creatively. I did my research before arriving, but when I showed up, the Castle was more complex than I imagined, with more tunnels, chambers, hallways, courtyards, lakes, and rivers throughout the property. In fact, nearly all the images you see below were envisioned while walking through the tour; we had to think fast and we were on a time schedule with a very kind tour guide. I had my trusty Profoto B1 light with me the whole time and I’m so glad I did because much of the medieval castle areas were dark.  While I had not even met Jason and Jennifer before arriving, and they had some ideas of what they wanted, they were the sweetest couple and just told me to do my thing with the camera.  I love my job and working with couples who want me to create magic for them. Here are some of the images below of what was created together. Congratulations to Jason and Jennifer who are planning their wedding next year in New York.

Engagement Session in Amador County

This couple showed up to my door in Amador County ready to have their engagement photographs taken when all of sudden it started raining. Despite the unexpected conditions, they were up for getting photos wherever and even getting wet,…and of course, so was I. We first went downtown to shoot under shelter, but then soon decided to head over to the river to get wet and shoot in the rain. In fact, both Nick and Annalesa volunteered to get in the water with their clothes in the rain, getting his new leather boots soaked and her dress wet. It was all for the shot we kept saying, and so it was…
