Thanks to my lovely clients, I'm so grateful that I had a chance to visit this beautiful country.
It is rather common for East Asian couples to take pre-wedding photos and make an album for their coming wedding. Here comes the couple from Hong Kong who were having a vacation in France and Italy and didn't want to waste those beautiful scenes.
Even it was our first meet, it felt like Julia and I have known each other since very long time ago. So was Andrew, he is just like an old friend.
It wasn't an easy work for us because we had two-day-shooting in different places with 4 hours driving distance. Poor Andrew had to drive us to Lago di Braies at 10pm after their half day shooting at Giardino Barbarigo Valsanzibio. However, the outcome is so worth it!
Julia loves natural makeup and hairstyle so I designed an elegant low updo for her, with the headpiece I prepared just a vintage touch to the whole style totally matching the beauty of the mansion.
We arrived Lago di Braies very late at 2am but we had to do the makeup and hair at 4am! With only one hour of sleep we actually felt like zombies....
It was so dark and made you think you were in the middle of nowhere the night we arrived. However, the view the next morning was breathtaking that made us have no regret lacking of sleep at all!
I wanted to make Julia like a fairy in this magnificent place, her style must be very natural. We tried two different looks with braids and both were suited for her.
The memory of working with these loving birds is still vivid and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with one another! I am based in England in summer and would love to travel around the UK and Europe, please feel free to contact me and let's chat!
