Quince Photography Spanish Monastery
Hi guys today I will like to share this beautiful photo shoot that we made at the Spanish Monastery. The place is not so big but its architecture is amazing, all the arches and columns with all this beautiful light coming through is a delight for any photographer. The place has an incredible history, it was built in 1141 AD in Sacramenia, near Segovia in northern Spain. After several uses, In 1925, William Randolph Hearst purchased the Cloisters and the Monastery’s outbuildings. The structures were dismantled stone by stone, bound with protective hay, packed in more than 11,000 wooden crates, numbered for identification and shipped to the United States. The massive crates remained in a warehouse in Brooklyn, New York, for 26 years. One year after Hearst’s’ death in 1952, they were purchased by two entrepreneurs for use as a tourist attraction. It took 19 months and the equivalent of nearly $20 million dollars (in today’s currency) to put the Monastery back together. I hope you guys enjoy it it as much as I did. Thanks to Janelle, our beautiful Quinceanera for her great performance in this photo shoot.
