One of my favorite places in the world is Napa. When my friend Ysabella Jones asked me to assist her for a photo shoot at Silverado Resort, you better believe I made my way there.
Shalom and Nilesh are from the South. They flew out to the West Coast for some wine tasting, delicious food and good memories with a bunch of friends. To make their trip even sweeter, they decided to book an engagement session to remember this time in their lives.
They have an undeniable chemistry and intense love for each other. I could see it in the slightest movements, like when Nilesh tucked Shalom's hair behind her face or whispered something sweet in her ear.
It really was magical, and I was so happy that I got to capture these moments. What some don't realize, the time during the engagement can feel like a whirlwind. There are celebrations to be had. Lists to be made. And a million things to be done for the wedding. So taking a few hours during that period of time and capturing photos can be precious. The engagement is a small window of time and the beginnings of your commitment to each other as life partners.
Shalom and Nilesh, it was so nice meeting you two! From the moment I met you, I felt your strong connection and dedication for each other. I'm glad we got to hang out and take some awesome photos at Silverado Resort. I wish you all the love, adventure, and peace towards your marriage. Let's grab a glass of wine when you're back in town. :)
