Matt and Laurel Engagement ~ Picchetti Winery
Matt and Laurel are a wonderful couple, and I'm so happy that they allowed me to photograph their engagement session at the beautiful Picchetti Winery in Cupertino. I had actually been to Picchetti several times before (I used to be a member of their wine club), but it had been a while, so I decided to take a quick visit there to get it fresh in my mind and start planning the types of shots and poses I wanted to do with Matt and Laurel. Oftentimes, the couple has an idea of what type of shots they'd like, which makes my job as the photographer a little easier, but I still like to go in with a plan, even if we end up completely abandoning it. Another thing that I like to suggest is having the couple bring multiple outfits to change into. As you can see, Laurel was able to achieve 3 completely different looks, with very little wardrobe change.
If you know anything about Picchetti, you'll know that they're known locally for all of the peacocks that roam the grounds. Unfortunately, one this day, there was only one roaming around, and while he was male, he wasn't sharing his plume with us. There were quite a few chickens, however, and one even decided to make an appearance in our photo shoot (see below). After about an hour at Picchetti, we finished up and headed to downtown Saratoga to take some photographs among the beautiful storefronts and scenery along Big Basin Way.
Matt and Laurel were so much fun to work with, and I wish them many years of happiness together. Congratulations to you both!
