We were thrilled when we received an email from Oxford UK based photographer Rosie ParsonsÂ from Forever After Images with images fromÂ a shoot she recently completed in Venice, Italy.Â There is only one word to describe theseÂ photographs – wow.
This dramatic background was perfect to highlight the beautiful new collection of gowns from Italian designer Anna Molin.Â The dresses were accessorized with jewelryÂ and hair accessories by up-and-coming designer Hannah Salomon of Kutuu and vintage jewelry specialists Flo & Percy.
The next twoÂ images are two ofÂ my favorites – I adore the area around Doge’s Palace and there is something classic, timeless, but downright hip about these photos.
A great deal of the shoot took place inside two gorgeous Venice hotels – The Locanda Vivaldi and the Palazzo Stern.Â Rosie says:
The Locanda Vivaldi is a boutique hotel only a short walk from St Markâ€™s Square, and features Murano glass chandeliers. The Palazzo Stern has only just reopened after a major refurbishment, and I was the first photographer to be granted access to its prestigious interiors featuring Moorish design from its 15th century roots and filled with pieces of art collected by the owners, the Stern family.
If you’ve ever been to Venice, the next twoÂ photos will make you catch your breath.Â With one glance, they transported me back to Italy.Â Those small alleys with hidden treasures… all of the gorgeous buildings along the Grand Canal…Â the colors, the sights, the sounds…Â
Lastly, my favorite.
Rosie, thank you so much for sharingÂ your beautiful workÂ with Anne, myself, and our readers.Â Rosie’s blog is one we should all stalk!Â There is a great story here about the behind-the-scenes of this shoot!
