From Caitlin of CJK Visuals – “Nothing says Valentine’s Day like champagne and chocolates! While I love the bright, fun side of Valentine’s Day that reminds me of opening up homemade cards and eating candy in elementary school I am also madly in love with the dark, romantic side of Valentine’s Day.

I asked local chocolatier, Mary O’Malley, to make some amazing homemade chocolate truffles for this romantic Valentine’s Day shoot and she did not disappoint! She created three amazing truffles: a dark chocolate truffle infused with earl grey tea, a red-hot chocolate truffle infused with crushed red pepper and topped with chili pepper, and finally a white chocolate truffle infused with rose champagne and topped with an edible gold leaf.

For the decor, I kept it very dark and classic, with lots of dark reds, blacks, and pops of gold throughout the table setting. The candles kept the setting looking warm and inviting. I borrowed some antique frames a local shop to use as a backdrop to the entire setting.

Models Sami and Shane have been together for four years and couldn’t have been cuter. We ended the session at sunset, and spent the rest of the evening packing up and eating lots of donuts, chocolates, and drinking champagne!”
