Ok. So we are totally smitten with all the romantic details in this workshop created and captured by Betsy Blue Photography in Oregons’s lush wine country at Villa Catalana Cellars. Gorgeous floral and styling by Kaleb Norman James Design with paper by Bespoke Strokes. Read on for design details and inspiration directly from the source!
Nestled in the hills of Oregon’s lush wine country, there sits an estate appearing to drop straight out of the countryside of Catalonia, Spain. Statues, stone masonry, ponds, pergolas, archways, sky-touching Italian cypress, vine-wrapped pillars, olive trees, stone steps leading from one garden sanctuary to the next. Villa Catalana Cellars is simply divine. Lusciously layered old roses and grape vines wind around every pillar, while tendrils of green vines emerge out of each stone crevasse, stretching towards unending sunshine and rain from above.
This private estate magnetized Betsy Blue Photography into hosting a private fine art film workshop, customized for one of her mentoring clients. Discussions of film and lighting nuances were held across the lush 14-acres, surrounded by Mediterranean gardens rich in unique flora. Kaleb Norman James styled a velvety table cascading with light-infused blooms along with multiple flatlays spread out in magnificent order with drama and simple romance alike…all richly fragranced with hints of Europe.
Betsy’s dedication to her mentoring clients is evident in the attention she gives to customizing each private workshop to her client’s brand style and business needs, giving them knowledge along with a rich gallery to walk away with that symbolized the culmination of months of study, practice and hard work.
