Beauty. Gardens. Romance. Those are the three words that come to mind when we hear Tuscany. Surprisingly, this shoot was shot in the coastal city of Vancouver. Inspired by Tuscany, Danielle Lucier wanted to bring that Italian charm to Vancouver and she achieved just that. Lucier Photography coordinated and photographed this shoot and we’re sure you’re going to love it!
With fall around the corner, we thought it would be a great time to share this Moroccan Vintage inspired wedding shoot. The shoot was held at Studio96, a new downtown venue space in Edmonton. Studio96 was formerly a church and was transformed into what it is today: a magical and inspiring venue. A group of local vendors worked together to create this enchanting shoot.
Modern minimalism at it’s finest. This styled shoot starts with a blank white canvas and ends with the slightest pop of gold metallic in hexagon shapes for a more dynamic look. The Vancouver based vendors behind this wedding shoot wanted to create a simple and obtainable – yet still beautiful – look to inspire brides-to-be.
Danielle Lucier is both a talented photographer and an avid daydreamer; she uses daydreams to calm her mind amidst tight deadlines and stressful moments, and also to let her creativity run free. During one particular late-night editing session, she found herself distracted by a video of Swan Lake. She envisioned a serene pond in the early morning mist, heard the rustling of tall grass and trilling of birds, and felt dawn’s first rays on her face. She imagined dancing along the water’s edge and running her fingers through the fog, watching it dissipate into nothingness.
The pale blue walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and myriad of textures and colours in the intricate décor of the Wedgewood Room beautifully represented the dream-like pond of our Black Swan cover shoot. Accents in shades of black and white mirrored the concept of duality that Danielle found most inspiring. She captured the internal conflict between light and dark, movement and stillness, and showed “that both can be beautiful and that they can meld together.”
Our Fall Winter 2017 issue will be on stands at Chapters and Indigo from mid August until mid January 2018. You can also order a copy online.
Today’s inspiration shoot is dripping with the hottest trends: marble, gold and tropical greenery! Marble has quite the history so it’s no wonder we’re seeing the rich texture continue to pop up all over, from kitchen tools and accessories to wedding cakes and backdrops. This is a trend that’s going to stick around for a while and we LOVE it!
This shoot united a team of creatives based in Edmonton, pooling their talents to bring the dignified texture to life!
