Photography for Blakeslee Vineyard Estates

July 26, 2016

I was really excited to work with Beth Eriendson of the FAB Marketing Group on a website makeover for Blakeslee Vineyard Estates. We first started with portraits of Bill and Sheila Blakeslee, both in a production context as well as outside in their vineyard with it’s stunning views of Mt. Hood. I have to admit that I love creating portraits on-location, so I was very pleased when they agreed to work with me at two locations. The portraits taken with their wine barrels are a bit more formal in how they are posed. I thought that doing something a little bit more relaxed and loose would be nice to reflect their warm and engaging personalities as well. So shortly before sunset we headed back to the vineyard to finish up with the portrait session.

The following week, it was time to style images that  showcased the beauty and hospitality of the the wine tasting experience at Blakeslee Vineyard Estates. Beth did a wonderful job in organizing the “models” and clothing colors. The day was  beautiful and very sunny, which of course for a photographer brings it’s challenges. While hoping for overcast, to make my life easier, I was prepared for full sunlight bringing my strobes and battery packs. In the end, I was happy that it was sunny because a cloudy day would not have created the happy ambience that come across in the photographs. As I write this, the new website is not yet finished. I can’t wait to see the website when it is finished.
