Rio Seco Engagement / Vanessa and Keith / Paso Robles Engagement

Crazy winds engagement at Rio Seco

     A few months ago I had a booth at the Paso Robles Inn Bridal show. It was the first time that I participated in this show since I usually do the Madonna Inn show. I prefer the Paso show, it is more intimate and not as many vendors, as the Madonna Inn show is bombarded with vendors and seems to be overwhelming to many of the brides that attend. For this Paso Show, the Inn raffled off something from each booth. Instead of making a cute gift basket, I wanted to give something that allowed me to connect with whoever won it, so I donated an engagement session. As the show went on through the day, winners were called every fifteen minutes. In the last minutes of the show, my engagement session wasn’t called off for a winner yet, then I finally heard who won! The couples came over to introduce themselves; Vanessa and Keith. They were so excited they had won a free engagement session with me and as we were exchanging information their names were called again!! They had won a DJ package with the booth next to me (I want some of their luck!).

   Over the next few weeks Vanessa and I emailed back and fourth planning their engagement session. We decided to do their engagement session at their wedding venue, Rio Seco Winery and Vineyard in Paso Robles The first time we scheduled, we had to cancel the day before since the forecast was 98% rain and of course that day ended up being 100% dry and sunny. We were finally able to reschedule and the day was extremely windy but that doesn’t stop me! Vanessa and Keith was such a fun couple to photograph, they are filled with laughs, fun and excitement. Even though the wind was hurricane status, we all made the best of it and had a great time.

I can’t wait to capture their wedding in October and capture more of their fun personalities!
