Villa Montalvo Engagement Session | Andora + William

William and Andora had a stunning Villa Montalvo Engagement Session. The Montalvo Arts Center is a non-profit center for the arts in Saratoga, California, United States. Open to the public, Montalvo comprises a cultural and arts center, a park, hiking trails, and the historic Villa Montalvo, an Italian Mediterranean Revival mansion. Villa Montalvo Arts Center is nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. All that to say, it makes a gorgeous location for any wedding or engagement session!

We explored the grounds during their Villa Montalvo Engagement session, chatting about their wedding day and how they met. Andora and William are both from the San Jose Area and have lived there most of their lives. Of all places, they met at a local CrossFit gym. They quickly became friends and built a community of friends and a support system there.

When William proposed, he knew that the gym they met at was the perfect location for it… they just had to get through a pretty intense workout first. All worth it in the end!

Andora and William are getting married this year in Gilroy, California. Gilroy, like their Villa Montalvo Engagement, is a beautiful place to get married! I can’t wait to capture their day!

Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of such a special time in your lives, William and Andora! Your engagement session was stunning, and I can’t wait to do it again on the wedding day!
