It was a night that I won’t soon forget. It is always an honor to get the opportunity to capture love in life. To be a witness, watching something become more than two people simply in love. Beholding a love grow and watching it come to the conclusion on the wedding day. It doesn’t get better than that. Being a Chicago wedding photographer I love my city scapes and bigger than life shoots. However, living in northwest Indiana, I get the opportunity to slow down and capture some very personal and amazing couples.
We began our session in the actual barrel room in Tabor Hill Winery, which is located in Michigan just outside of Three Oaks. Here is where they store they wine, let it age so that we all can enjoy and perfect glass of wine at their amazing bar and restaurant. Chael + Tyler love their private time they get when they visit Tabor Hill. This shoot was as much personal as it was creative. Being able to get these personal images at a place they love to come to to get away meant the world to them. Of course we had to get them in the “barrel room”! As a matter of fact, these two will be getting married at the amazing https://www.journeymandistillery.com/, Michigan next year!
We continued our shoot with a gentle carefree stroll through the vineyard. The grapes are coming into season and the branches were lush with ripe grapes and full leaves. So green, so gorgeous.
Oh…. we can’t forget to take our wine with us!
Once the sun started to get a bit lower we began or dramatic portion of our session. This is my personal favorite time of any session I do. I get to bring out the lights and we get to have fun and create images that bring out the color and boldness of the setting.
Once we completed our tour of the premises, we HAD to go inside and check out the gorgeous venue.
I think he loves her….
Of course! More wine!
Before we started to wrap things up we made one more trip outside to capture the little light we had left for our final shot of the night. We made a stop on the terrace facing the vineyard followed by kicking up our feet on some comfy wooden chairs on the property.
And… to complete our night we made sure to get an epic shot of our couple showing off the amazing vineyard here at Tabor Hill Winery.
Thank you Tyler + Chael for allowing me to capture your engagement and your future wedding in 2020.
