The Cottage Vineyard And Winery Engagement
At first when you drive up the Cottage Vineyard and Winery in Cleveland GA it doesn’t seem much. And looks pretty basic, but the correct time, and environmental settings you can create some amazing images. Take our client Autumn & Aaron’s session for an example.
The first thing that came to my head upon entering the venue was that I was not gonna be able to create anything amazing here. But it wasn’t until we started shooting that I realized, oh my god. These are coming out beautiful.

We started off the session down i the vineyards. We stuck with just one lane of the vineyards since we had lights, I didn’t want to move around too much. This was also the getting to know moment with the couple since this was the first time we meet in person.
Aaron was warmed up right away, but I think Autumn needed more time. No worries, because the guys are the hardest to warm up to. We started to pose them a little bit in the vineyards and then I asked to start walking so we can grab some real natural shots.
The Cottage Vineyard and Winery has a huge open space right before entering the vineyards. Yes, I spotted and knew we had to take advantage of this spot. With the open grounds, and the blue ridge mountain in the background, this would create some amazing photos.
We had asked the couple to start heading in the open field and just walk around do whatever you like. My intention was to grab a wide shot of them playing in the big open field.
It was time for the sun to set so we started to head back up. With the sun setting and the mountains in the backgroud, I had to bring out my big flash to create an image I had vision as the sun was coming down.
We spent the next 30 minutes near the entrance to the Cottage Vineyard and Winery in Cleveland GA. There were big brown barn doors up here that I messed while coming up. So, of course it was getting late so I had to ask if they were up for few more shots.
