Helena & Albert @ Bordeaux, France
The photo shoot for Helena & Albert was our first day in Bordeaux. Helena & Albert were able to make a very special arrangement with Chateau Pontet-Canet, a Grand Cru winery producing well structured and balanced wine with a long and beautiful finish, so that we were able to shoot in their private and valuable underground wine cellar. We faced a challenging weather that day – it was cold, windy and rainy. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time shooting and visiting famous chateaux.
Let’s hear what Helena & Albert say about the trip:
“Shooting in Bordeaux and the vineyards with Philip has been a truly amazing experience. We had the pleasure of visiting and shooting at several world renowned chateaux, especially at Chateau Pontet-Canet where we had the privilege of taking pictures in their underground wine cellar and vineyard. (thanks Melanie!)
We were also pleasantly surprised by a magnum of 2004 Lynch Bages. A gift from a total stranger, a lovely French lady, to congratulate us on our marriage. A random act of kinderness that brightened all of our spirits!
Philip and Jenny (our makeup artist) did a wonderful job, kept our spirits up in the crazy rain and wind, and took some marvellous pictures!!! Thank you!!!”
