We want to congratulate one of our couples, Wendy and Neil, on the birth of their baby girl last week! We were so surprised to find out that they named her Sophia because Giorgio always thought Wendy had a striking resemblance to the famous Italian actress Sophia Loren. Giorgio was fortunate to make a portrait of her years ago (I'll ask him to scan the print and post it here some day). Anyway, he would often refer to Wendy as our "Sophia bride." Maybe you'll agree. This week's featured photo is one of Giorgio's all time favorites, which is of Wendy in the car on the way to the ceremony.
Wasn't Sophia Loren amazing at the Golden Globes! One of our all time favorites. Giorgio had a chance to take a portrait of her years ago....ask him to tell the story, it is better told in person. Anyway, came across this photo on the interwebs, no idea where it originated from, but what a fashion inspiration she is.
Both Victoria's and Marjorie's weddings reminded me of 1950s weddings of my parent's generation. Not that their weddings were overtly vintage, but there were some lovely hints there. While producing their wedding images some inspiration came from the following:
Music: The Platters "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"
1950s Pop Culture: celebrity starlets such as Grace Kelly
