A Delightful Romp Around Rome: Stylized Destination Wedding Shoot
I mentioned the other day that I was going on a trip so as you’re reading this now, I’m actually traipsing around Tokyo, Japan where my husband and I are belatedly celebrating my birthday (which was last weekend, in case you want to know. :) ).
And if you’re wondering who the mystery guest poster is, well it’s actually just a virtual me-from-the-past. Sorry to disappoint but I just wanted to have fun with you guys! I’ve scheduled posts to pop up every other day for the two weeks that I’m gone so don’t forget to tune in on Friday again for a fun and crafty DIY wedding!
But first let’s enjoy today’s feature. It’s a stylized wedding shoot featuring a gorgeous couple running and being cuddly all over picturesque Rome, Italy so I hope it proves inspiring to those among you planning an intimate destination wedding in the beautiful city. Tracey Manailescu of Tracey M Events has the details:
This was a dream styled shoot for us. We enlisted the help of photographer, Anna Nersesyan of Cinderella Images to help us arrange this beautiful styled shoot in Rome, Italy. Through Facebook, Skype, telephone and email we were able to come up with the vision of how we wanted the styled shoot to look and feel. The models were selected, dress chosen, invites and location prepared and agreed upon. When we showed up to start the shoot, the male model was nowhere to be found. He wasn’t answering his phone or email. Ms. Nersesyan decided to call the limo driver that was arranged to take us to the airport that afternoon that she had arranged for us to fill in. Claudio Roberti hopped on his scooter in his suit and saved the day! We laughed right away, because somehow this model was even better then the one who was supposed to be there…
We started off at a little cafe, where the desserts and owners let us have free run of the place for photos. We then walked all through the streets to get to our ending point at Castel Sant’Angelo. It was such a big jaunt through Rome, that we had to stop and buy the poor model some sandals, because she couldn’t walk in her high heels anymore. Locals were so happy for the couple that they were coming down from their apartments to get a better look, and some even got in the photos. It couldn’t have turned out better!
