I adore Laura. The first time we chatted on the phone, I was intrigued by her Italian accent. When I met with Laura and Paul, I was floored by their intelligence. Both Laura and Paul come from the field of Rhetoric, and when Laura described she wanted a look that was not sweet and light (which I tend to go for), but more dramatic, I reached back into my art history vocabulary and said “chiarascuro.” She said “yes! Is that a photography term?” Well, not really, but I was definitely up for the challenge of creating photos with a heightened sense of drama and contrast, something reminiscent of Caravaggio (one of my favorite painters!). Laura and Paul were such a joy to work with! I would describe a mood and her body language would go there. So check the results for their intimate and sophisticated wedding!
Congratulations to Laura, Paul, and Hugo!
A big thanks to all the amazing people who made Laura and Paul’s wedding effortless!
