An Italy Workshop: The Engagement Shoot

When it comes to dreamy landscapes and gorgeous photography, Jose Villa is our go-to guy. He proves time and again that this is a winning combo. For his latest Italian adventure, Jose set up shop at Villa Cetinale, sharing his talent and knowledge with a handful of photographers. The result is this vintage inspired engagement shoot styled by Summer Watkins and beautified by TEAM Hair And Makeup. Check out the full gallery and we’ll be back a bit later with the wedding shoot!

From Jose Villa… This was Day one of the Italy Workshop where we photographed models in an engagement style shoot. This gives the students an opportunity to learn how to pose couples in a natural way.

Italian Boudoir Shoot Full of Romance

I’ll be the first to admit that the idea of boudoir can be a bit intimidating but in the right hands, it’s nothing short of perfection. This session is stripped down to the natural beauty of the Bride. A beauty thoughtfully enhanced by Mar Of Team Hair And Makeup and styled by Summer Watkins. And then there’s the photographs by Jose Villa that could stand alone as pure works of art. See even more here.

From Mar… Of course it’s always a pleasure to work with Jose Villa! This was a special shoot because it was for one of Jose’s amazing workshops in Italy.

I wanted the look to be soft and to enhance her beauty. I chose to only soft waves and added in our Team Bridal extensions for some extra volume. I love effortless hair, no one has to know it took an hour to create! With her makeup I wanted totally natural skin and only winged liner and some highlighting in the right places. Makeup can often be distracting in boudoir and I wanted the man behind the camera to see her and not her makeup! Oh and we must not forget her wardrobe, wowza! Summer did an amazing job pulling pieces which are romantic and soft, just like the style of the shoot!

Tuscany Wedding Inspiration Shoot from Emm and Clau

I have such a soft spot in my heart for inspiration shoots. They fill our screens with picture after picture of pretty, and allow us all to dream a little bigger. So this beauty from Emm and Clau is right up my alley. It’s filled with gorgeous florals from Stiatti Fiori, designed by Varese Wedding and all takes place at the stunning Villa Dianella - making this gallery one inspiring place to be today. See it all here.

From Emm and ClauIn April we had the pleasure to shot an American destination wedding in Tuscany and because we wanted to do some traveling also and had some spare time for shootings, we decided we wanted to photograph an Italian styled shoot. So we got in touch with Varese Wedding and started planning everything.

We wanted this project to be something very chic yet simple, in pastel colors. We loved the venue, the stylish wedding table, the delicious candy bar and our lovely Italian bride for the day. But to finish it all with something unexpected, we incorporated a crazy sweet maid of honor to spice the story. We are so thankful for the whole team that did such an amazing job, and were so nice and supportive. We hope you enjoy the photos and get inspired!
