Italian alfresco

From Blush and Bowties: We had the incredible honour of shooting in one of Canada's iconic landmarks, The Art Gallery of Ontario. Walker Court (in the Art Gallery of Ontario) has always been one of my very favourite spaces in Toronto. I was attracted to the court's expansive ceiling and natural light. As a designer, I've always been drawn to European lifestyle and old world influence. I've been lucky enough to travel to Italy many times and I was inspired to bring the feeling of an Italian alfresco dinner to Walker Court.

classic Italian + simplicity

To me, the shoot is an expression of classic Italian meets modern simplicity. I longed to explore the intimacy of an Italian alfresco celebration juxtaposed with contemporary artistry of the AGO.
