Good times coming your way for fall, are you excited? I know I am. You probably know that we limit our portrait sessions every year due to our crazy schedule. We get so many inquiries during the holiday season for portrait sessions, so we decided to do something a little differently this year instead of having to turn so many of you down. We are going to be offering Fall Mini Sessions. They will be taking place on two dates, November 3rd and 17th and will last for 20 minutes each. You will receive a minimum of 8 full res digital files to be used for anything you please, holiday cards, prints, gifts, etc. Aaaaaaaand, guess what? It gets better. The always amazing Sitting in a Tree is going to be styling them. YES! We wanted to give you some variety with locations, so on Nov 3rd we will be shooting at an outdoor session in the South/North Park area of San Diego, and on Nov 17th the session will take place indoors at our place in San Diego (South Park). For the pricing, it’s $289 per session which includes everything I listed above, including the styling by Tori (it’s not clothing styling, but setting styling and props). Then you will have your images delivered to you via electronic transfer by the last week of November, in time for any cards or prints. Soooo, interested? Space is limited and we are already halfway booked so email me right away if you want to get in on the goodness rachel@studiocastillero.com. I will send you a paypal invoice and once I receive payment you will be booked! Then in the meantime, check out some portrait goodies here on our blog. oxox

Now how was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Ours was EPIC, I must say. We spent it with some lovely friends and had some pretty darn AMAZING food (and I didn’t have to cook, yay!). Rico and I took a few days off as well from working which was much needed so here we are with a decorated home and feeling like new people. I sure do love the holiday season, love love LOVE it. Speaking of things I love, today’s post is a little different than usual. It’s about trees, I love trees. Not only are they beautiful but they are hugely important part of the ecosystem and our livelihood so how could you not love them? The environment has always been my other passion besides art and it’s protection is something that Rico and I try really hard to incorporate into our daily lives. Because of this, the San Diego based non profit Plant With Purpose is near and dear to our hearts. Well, guess what? They just so happen to be having a photo contest this week, BOOM, two important pieces of us collide, photography and trees. That’s right, it’s a photo contest with a trees theme. Even better, the submitted pics will be on display at our favorite coffee shop, Coffee & Tea Collective THIS THURSDAY….there will be a little get together there from 7pm to 9pm where we’ll be voting on the pics and celebrating trees and everything they give us. So you know what I think? I think you should DEFINITELY send in a pic to be displayed on Thursday, DO IT DO IT DO IT, Rico and I are FOR SURE and we’d love for you to share your tree pics with us. Here is a link to Plant With Purpose’s blog post that gives the submission details: HERE. You have until Wednesday and all you have to do is email an image over. Easy right? Piece of cake. Then also, even if you don’t send in a submission, at least come on down to C&T Collective on Thursday evening to celebrate and say hi, AND of course get in the AmigoBooth (yep, you’d better believe it will be there!). And with that, I leave you to the trees. xoxo

Mondaaaaaaay! Let me just say, I’m SO EXCITED for this Monday today, yep, this one, right here. Why? Well, we have a fabulous feature up on Green Wedding Shoes today that we are very excited about. We have the most amazing clients, we really do. And we just LOVE it when they trust us in our vendor recs and book the peeps we love to work with. This one, was one of those weddings. We will be sharing it in detail at another date so I won’t gush too much, but you should definitely head on over to Green Wedding Shoes RIGHT NOW and see the amazing-ness that is this Free People inspired wedding, designed by one of our favorite friends Sitting in a Tree events (Tori, we adore you and you’re brilliant, just brilliant). Go see! do it! you’ll die (in a good way of course). Enjoy!

Aaaaand, since we wanted to leave you with a few more extra goodies to take a look at, we thought we’d share a few below from our wedding we shot this last Saturday at the Parker Palm Springs for Jenny and Matt. It was another example of an amazing team of vendors (Sitting in a Tree, Floral Lab, DJ Austin Hendrix, AmigoBooth, etc) coming together with an amazing couple to create a pretty kick ass day…not even kidding, it was EPIC. Don’t you worry, more on this wedding later on as well, just a little something something for a taste.
