vogue sposa - bridal session - spoleto, italy

i can’t believe it’s been 4 days since i left italia! what an amazing almost 2 weeks spent in one of my most favorite countries. my time with max, cristiana and fede was so wonderful…the FOLLOW YOUR HEART TOUR was outstanding! it was such a great trip. albeit i missed my little family dearly, we had such a great time in italy!

one of the things we did on the tour was have a bridal session arranged with models. mmmmmm..yummy! and dear max & cristiana set us up so well..the models were lovely. the dress was lovely. the venue was lovely. altho it was raining, we made due inside..i had wished to do outdoor portraits..however..”joe” didn’t come thru for us. :)

vogue sposa, owned by the most dear Lina, in spoleto, has got to be one of the sweetest boutique’s i have been in. Lina has been in the business for many years and her timeless taste in dresses is amazing! when max and i went to pick up the dress on loan from vogue sposa, i took advantage and snapped some shots of this beautiful little shop in the heart of spoleto, umbria…

for those interested, i shot all of them on high ISO and with available natural light. i’m not a fan, nor a very strong off-camera flash girl, and “grain” doesn’t scare me (being a former film user for years..). i was pleased with them.. :) i know the others were experimenting lots with flash techniques..can’t wait to see their final ones!

thank you so very much lina, for the use of this GORGEOUS dress..for our beautiful models, paolo and michela..and to max & cristiana who organized it all…you, again, amaze me. xo
