Hard to believe it’s been almost two years since an incredible group of creatives gathered at Stone Tower Winery for our “En Plein Aire” styled shoot. While we’ve had a lot of beautiful images posted and published over the last few years, there’s a sweet little story that we want to share here today.
Our real-life couple, Kaitlyn and Dave, were married at Stone Tower Winery in November 2017. In Kaitlyn’s words:
We had an amazing day, and loved everything about it. Our particular day was 35 degrees – so while we do have some outdoor photos, we (I at first) loved the possibility of getting more through this styled shoot. After a little convincing, Dave was on board too.
Little did Dave know.
We put Kaitlyn and Dave through a marathon 7 hours, 6 stations, and 16 photographers on a gorgeous but hot May afternoon in the middle of Northern Virginia’s wine country. Throughout the entire event our real-life couple acted more like professional models, moving from air-conditioned comfort to outdoor backdrops with humor and enthusiasm for each of our photographers.
What follows (in alphabetical order) are a few images from 10 of those photographers. Each of them brings their own style – it’s amazing how the same couple and décor can be captured so differently through each artist’s lens.
We love them all, and hope Kaitlyn and Dave do too!
