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.

Paris is always a good idea—and we can’t wait for that good idea to be a possibility again. But, until then, this gorgeous inspiration shoot from Wike Zijlstra Photography and Michelle Wever Photography will have to do. Taking a cue from the backdrop of the city, the team employed a palette that includes beige with golden accents with accents of dusty pink and a crisp green. The gorgeous elopement scenes are captured at the Petit Palais—with the giant, gold door, Jardin du Tuileries for some garden vibes and ended with a champagne at Le Louvre. Florals are by The Bridal Blush with stationery by Leintjes and the gown is NOYA by Riki Dalal. Take in all the sights and scenes of Paris in these stunning images!
