On my recent trip to Europe (Spain, Italy, France) I spent four amazing days at the Ronda Mountain Retreat. Nestled among the rustic hills of the Andalusian Mountains and just 15 minutes from the historic/tourist section of Ronda we were firmly ensconced in the lap of luxury. Tended to by the on-site staff we woke to hot coffee and farm fresh eggs each morning, spent the days exploring the 700+ acre working farm grounds (dogs, kittens, horses, goats, and chickens, oh my!) with random trips into Ronda to see the famous bridge, the oldest bull fighting ring in Spain and to drink lots of wine and eat lots of authentic Spanish tapas!
The cortijo itself was just gorgeous! Rooms were beautifully decorated and space was ample. Several evenings were spent in the living room around the crackling fire, drinking local wine and snacking on local hams and cheeses while enjoying our rustic surroundings.
I’m looking forward to another stay at The Ronda Mountain Retreat and you should consider them, too! It’s an amazing space for a girls wine tasting weekend, weddings, workshops or if you just need to get away for awhile. If you need any convincing here are a few photos and a video I put together from our stay. Enjoy!
It was the morning of our first full day at Cortijo Rasero. We had just finished breakfast (an amazing omelette made of fresh farm eggs and local goat cheese!) and were… well, I was jet lagged and I have no idea what we were doing. I remember being in the living room, though, and noticing these trees, blowing in the wind. There was something hypnotic about the way the leaves caught the light as they fluttered about. And the sound of the leaves and the wind… it was beautiful. I knew I had to capture this.
I’ve been super busy this past week with shoots for Interior Designers, small business owners, Realtors and even a big online design retailer (more on that project in a later post)! Before I sign off for the weekend I wanted to share a fun Property Video I shot on Wednesday at the 7800 Plaza Condo building on Mercer Island. I was really trying to capture the modern, spacious, sleek vibe of the space. What do you think?
I spent the morning working on a project with Jennifer Carroll over at Bellefleur Lingerie in Fremont. The video is a few days away from completion but here’s a quick teaser! Enjoy!
I’ve mentioned a few times on this blog how much I enjoy working with and shooting projects for Shannon Campbell of Seattle Swank – she’s fun, has great style and I always know I’m going to walk away with new material for my portfolio! This project was no different.
This amazing mid-century modern was shot by another photographer but I was lucky enough to get in to shoot a little promotional video for Seattle Swank’s portfolio. I hope you enjoy!
One of the new video products that I’m offering is the Agent Intro/Outro. These are short clips designed to put yourself and your contact information around every Property Video we create.
Here’s an example of an Intro and Outro I shot with Bay Area Realtor, Regina Jacobs.
By clicking on the image to the right you’ll be taken to a playlist with three clips. The first is the Intro, the second is the Outro and the third is an example of how to use these with a Property Video.
These are super fun to shoot and only take about an hour. Give me a call to schedule your shoot!
