Alyssa and Matt flew all the way from the East Coast, so I knew I had to make this shoot amazing and worth the flight :D
When I asked Alyssa what kinds of movies and music would best describe them as a couple, she gave me great examples like Grease, Pleasantville and other great films to work with. What stood out to me was that they loved The Notebook and that they were both Italian. I began to design a shoot around a couple on vacation in the late 1950's in Italy. I pictured big Artesian springs, fountains, bikes and gondolas in Venice. This is the result of that thought process. We even had time for a wardrobe change afterward!
Thank you Beauty by Mish for the hair and makeup!
