The past few years have been a dark, gloomy, waiting game. Well, this couple and a team of Italian vendors were done waiting, and they said, let's elope, along with so many other couples recently. The great thing about eloping is that you can do literally whatever you want. If you want to wear a completely sheer lace gown with nothing under it, go for it, if you want crazy modern art pieces hanging in the background...do it! Now, doesn't that sound liberating?
Emoilab wanted to create a shoot that would be pure fun for their fellow vendors and real-life model couple, Aurita and Claire. They decided that they all deserved a little joy and entertainment after what we've all been through. Set in Lost And Found Studio, an edgy photography studio, they started the design with bright, bold floral arrangements by Amor Vincit Omnia Design. Memento Story Film was there to capture every kiss and every piece of confetti falling in this lively editorial while Cristiana Martinelli took these vibrant photos. You can see even more from this fun elopement in the full gallery. Keep reading to hear more from the photographer, Cristiana Martinelli, about how they brought this vision to life.
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW
This inspirational shoot was planned by a team of women. Our models, Aurita and Claire, are a real couple too. They contacted us saying, "We want to come to Rome in August and we must create something together!". So we did. The shoot took place in a photography studio where many movies and video clips were filmed. Every detail (dresses, shoes, and headpieces) was made in Italy. After this year we all need fun weddings to bring us back up. So, we set up a fun, colorful, and crazy shoot. We wanted to express freedom and smiles and to enjoy ourselves...and we did!
