Styled Shoot: Dulce Como El Amor/Sweet as Love by Barbara Jacqueline Photography

Happy Valentine’s Day! This sumptuously detailed styled shoot, brought to us by Barbara Jacqueline Photography is truly a celebration of amor.  Here’s what Barbara has to say about the shoot:

As a wedding photographer I am inspired by many things, my clients and their real life and their real love stories. Fascinated since a young child with 16th and 17th century paintings which capture the true essence of “painting with light”, as well as my mother’s own photography talents and career as a portrait photographer in Cuba, I feel strongly this has helped to mold me and inspire me.

See more after the cut!

The original inspiration to this editorial is my heritage. Being of Cuban descent and Spanish ancestry, I was inspired to style a Spanish wedding that was not only beautiful and romantic; I envisioned something not so typical in a Spanish wedding bringing in elements of passion and beauty to accompany this culture.

Many small details that aren’t so small were brought into the editorial such as surnames from the Spanish, the bride and other names themselves were my grandparents names and throughout the stationery place cards were also created with names of this region including names of my mother, uncles, aunts, friends and more. All names which derive from Spain.

The objective was to showcase and style a wedding that embraced the location, region to showcase the venue, and to invite talented wedding professionals I have had the distinct honor of working with these past few years. The team was constructed very carefully and we worked diligently to create the ideal setting for a perfect wedding in the Napa Valley.
