Once upon a time ..

How can anyone resist working in a place where the famous Mona Lisa was born! Yes I am talking about the mysteriously smiling woman portrayed by Leonardo da Vinci. The surroundings you see from the terrace are the ones depicted on the background of that same famous painting.

Our photographer Milos Dokmanovic had this location in mind for quite some time but we somehow never got round to organising something here. I was more interested in trying to do a white wintershoot to be honest and I was also not sure we could gain interest from such a stunning location for a styled shoot. But when we finally did contact them they were sò incredibly enthusiastic and on the day itself did seriously everything to accomodate our needs, that I consider this the best photoshoot experience yet.  

So on a sunny day in June we headed out with an entire team of experts to Villa Vignamaggio and did some seriously romantic stuff. Luscious creamy peonies and white o’hara roses were my main choice and really complimented the uber-romantic wedding dress by Regina Schrecker sposa. 

Thanks to the wonderful kitchen and home supply shop Bartolini we managed to get our hands on a Vera Wang dinner set and beautiful golden cutlery. So a BIG thank you to them for trusting us with such delicate table ware. 

We all really had a lot of fun that day and I hope everyone’s efforts shines through. Can’t wait to do the next one!
