When I saw this submission we didn’t have room in the magazine, but I immediately fell in love with the black and white photography (I think everyone knows how I feel about B&W photos … love them!) and knew I had to share it with you. Not to mention, Switzerland is an incredible location. Add designer fashion, a gorgeous couple (who also happen to be newlyweds), to-die-for photography and a love that is so obvious like theirs and it was the making for an amazing photo shoot.
According to the photographer: The idea of the shoot was born about 1.5 years ago. I loved the idea of a fashion-inspired shoot in a vintage luxury hotel. The Beau Rivage was the perfect location because it still has this kind of “old Hollywood glam” feeling. It took long from the idea to realize the shoot because I couldn’t find the right dress. When I saw the Dolce & Gabbana dress in “VOGUE” I fell in love with it and it quickly became the inspiration for the right styling, fantastic shoes, illustration, etc. The couple is actually a real couple. Danielle and Patric got married just a couple of days before the shoot. Danielle is Brazilian and Patric is Swiss. Danielle even moved to Switzerland just for Patric. They are both amazing. We loved shooting them and the atmosphere was beyond fantastic!
Thank you so much Danielle and Patric for letting us share this with our readers and a huge thank you to Andrea & Marcus for letting us share your incredible images!
