Recently, I got to photograph and amazing wedding at the Villa Montalvo! It was a magical day for Thomas and Theresa and full of love and celebration. First off, let me just say that Villa Montalvo is an absolutely stunning venue. Located in the heart of Saratoga, California, the villa is surrounded by lush gardens, towering trees, and breathtaking architecture. As a photographer, I couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque backdrop for such a special day. The day began with the couple getting ready in separate suites at Villa Montalvo. As I captured moments of anticipation and nervous excitement, it was clear that Thomas and Theresa were both filled with joy and love. The sun was shining, and there was an air of excitement all around.
As the ceremony drew near, the guests started to arrive, and I couldn’t help but notice their awe as they walked through the enchanting gardens toward the ceremony site. The ceremony itself took place in a charming outdoor courtyard filled with blooming flowers and surrounded by majestic columns. It truly felt like something out of a fairytale. Thomas and Theresa exchanged their vows under a white arch adorned with delicate flowers and greenery. Overall, the atmosphere was incredibly romantic, and I made sure to capture every tear, smile, and stolen glance. The couple’s love was palpable, and it was an honor to witness and capture the moments that solidified their commitment to each other.
Finally, after the ceremony, we took advantage of the stunning grounds of Villa Montalvo for the couple’s portrait session. We explored the hidden nooks and crannies, the vine-covered walls, and the peaceful pathways. With every click of my camera, I could see the couple’s love and happiness shine through. Inside the villa, the reception space awaited us, and it was beautifully decorated with twinkling lights, elegant centerpieces, and a dance floor ready for an unforgettable night of celebration. Being a part of Thomas and Theresa’s wedding at the Villa Montalvo was an experience I will never forget! The love, beauty, and atmosphere were simply extraordinary. As a photographer, I couldn’t ask for more: a gorgeous venue, a loving couple, and the opportunity to capture their most precious moments.

“Amanda was AMAZING for our wedding! We loved working with her. She really captured so many beautiful photos for us, I am still looking over them almost every day and constantly sharing them with family and friends. She made us feel so comfortable during the wedding and brought so much energy to our day. We planned our wedding in the East Bay, but live on the east coast. Amanda was so accommodating and great about communicating and meeting with us despite the limited time we had on the west coast. I am so glad we chose her for to photograph our wedding, the results were beautiful and we will treasure the photos forever!” -Priyanka
