Dream Photoshoot

The Castle Experience

When given the possibility to play dress, in an 18th-century Victorian castle, we take it.
This is your party, modern or classic, do whatever you want to do, this is an experience you will remember. The dream shoot is a fabulous way to celebrate, including wardrobe styling, hair and makeup and access to a grand castle.

“Our moments together were enchanting; I was photographed everywhere, – on the grand staircase, and the long hallways, in the ballrooms. It was a magical experience, a once in a lifetime bucket-list worthy memory.” – Sophie Brock

“I invite you to a personal session with me,
I’ll show you a side of you that doesn’t usually get to be seen.
I want you to be able to see the
beautiful, natural, confident woman in yourself.”

Cristina Stoian

The Castle Experience

What you get



This is where we'll start designing your photoshoot. What to wear, what style, how to prepare, we will have a consultation pre-shoot.



This session is all about you. Hair, make-up, you’re totally pampered, we go through the outfits you choose. It’s important you feel beautiful in order to feel confident in front of the camera, and this session will definitely make you feel it!



This is where the fun with the camera starts. Forget all you thought you knew about when people take shots of you, let me work my magic and we’ll see what happens. Which side of you will come bursting through? Only time will tell…



The you, you’ll keep forever. We’ll go through your shots and you can choose which ones you’d like me to keep. The package includes 25 images and 1 enlargement.

My name is Cristina and I am a portrait photographer. I’ve learned through the years that photographing the lives and hearts of women runs so much deeper than just getting your picture taken. It’s an emotional experience, one that exposes vulnerabilities, but all the while empowers and uplifts. It’s an experience I want every women to have. One where she realises her beauty is unmistakable and the role that she plays in this world is both irreplaceable and imperative. My promise to you is that once you step in front of my camera, this will happen. And it’s an experience you won’t forget.

I look forward to seeing you in my studio.

Yours truly,

"I was overwhelmed with the posing and smiling, but after a while I was really enjoying the fact to be in the spotlight."

"Everybody should do that to pamper yourself for one day. I had the pleasure to do it with 2 good friends and that was the best experience at all. To share these moments together and discussing the impressions we made back and forth was really great."

During my experience with Cristina, I was a bit shy in the beginning and felt quite insecure, but she created a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere so that I could just be myself without any artificial postures and facial expressions.

"I really enjoyed the day at your "studio" with getting styled and put into poses how I had never done before. So it was a very special experience of feeling beautiful and discovering new facettes of myself."
