Happy Friday, you guys! Today I’m sharing with you a cozy Love Story photoshoot I did about two weeks ago. When I was discussing the idea with Ksenia, I came up with this moodboard. The idea was to do a cozy close and personal love story, that was sweet, gentle, and with natural light. For clothes we came up with knit cardigans we grabbed in H&M, a simple country-style casual dress and thick patterned woolen socks. St. Petersburg has lots of photostudios with different props and styles, so we looked for that beige-cozy feel and were lucky to get to shoot with the New Year’s ornaments in place to make a beautiful blurry background.
I love the idea of a couple’s photoshoot because many couples (and me and Martijn included) don’t have many, if at all, professional photos with each other. So, when the folks ask for pictures, you just keep on browsing through selfies, and those usually don’t have the right touch. And since recently I finished creating the english version of my portfolio website meant solely for my photoshoots (check it here: photo.taleofthegreat.com), filling it with cool photographs such as this shoot is bringing me so much joy! I am still working on the russian version of the website, but in the meanwhile, I’m sure you’ll find it interesting to browse and look through.
So, here’s where you guys, my readers, come in. I’d love to hear what you think about the photoshoot and was it at all similar to the moodboard we discussed prior to the shoot. So don’t hesitate to leave comments down below and let me know what you think! Scroll down for the rest of the pictures.
