Photography by Married Morenos Photography
Photography has such a wonderful storytelling ability. Of course we've all heard the adage "A picture is worth a thousand words," but this session from the Donny Zavala Workshop, photographed by Married Morenos Photography bring so much truth to this statement.
Every day, artists are creating a reality, telling another story besides their own through carefully curated details, and subtle techniques, to convey certain emotions. Frederica Benni explained the story behind this incredible session, and it just makes our dreams of traveling to Tuscany so much more powerful!
"The mood behind this boudoir is trying to imagine a bride-to be going through the various steps of her preparation. The environment, an ancient castle with its minimalist and organic aspect inspired the choice of simple elements to use for this boudoir like the water and the contact with the nature surrounding the bride.
"Like each bride on her big day, we imagined her all alone, dedicating some time to herself in the intimacy of her restroom, playing with the water slowly filling the tub, investigating her image on a mirrow, watching outside the window just like getting slowly ready to start her new life. We imagined her creating a romantic atmosphere and playing with the candles. Simple and delicate gestures creating such a lovely atmosphere all around. The marvellous robes by Melinda Rose Designs were perfect for this minimal organic boudoir.
"We imagined the outdoor shots both as a boudoir and as a proper bridal inapiration. We purposely used only a few elements, to keep the set very simple and clean. Right for this reason we wanted her to be dressed up only with a marvellous veil from Melinda Rose and with her engagement ring beautifully designed by Michaela Roemer. She walked down the narrow paths of the castle, just like to recall and say goodbye to her loved places where she has all her memories, getting stronger for the new life in front of her. She doesn’t need anything a part a green organic bouquet to embellish the set, in a spiritual communion with the nature. And then the final shots, with the bride finally dressed up in a very elegant and minimal Claire La Faye gown, enriched by the stunning headpiece by Melinda Rose, all around the castle which was bystander of the the transition to a new life."
