In April, I had the opportunity to work with Portland Sangria on a summer campaign for their wine spritz collection. I used the brand colors and the ingredients as the inspiration for the shoot and went for a fun, airy feel to complement the season and the fresh produce. Portland Sangria originally started with a rosé wine sangria with raspberries, loganberries, and cardamom. Since then, they've added a white wine sangria with blueberries and basil, and a white wine sangria with lemon, ginger, and rosemary. The fantastic Katie Burnett of Bull in China created several cocktails with the sangria, creating moments for action shots of pouring, bubbling, and fizzing.
Even though the weather in Portland has been persistently cold and grey for most of the month, I've been loving how Portland Sangria infuses a bit of summertime into even the darkest of days. They are dangerously sippable and, although I've heard from many that the blueberry-basil sangria is a favorite, I love the subtle gingery bite of the lemon-ginger-rosemary sangria. Here are a few of my favorite images from the photo shoot!
