figueroa mountain farmhouse, santa ynez, california

I’ve been almost everywhere in the country except for one corner, to be specific, the southwest corner that is dominated by California. I found myself finally getting the chance to tour the countryside in attendance  of a workshop led by one of the world’s greatest wedding and portrait photographers: Jose Villa. Amidst the artistic talents of California’s best vendors, it was a day of beautiful grounds, delectable food, world-class inspiration, and genuine souls. Thank you to all involved!!

All photographs were captured on Fuji medium format film with a Contax 645.
