Elizabeth Messina Editorial Shoot
September 8, 2011

We all know that pretty much everything that the lovely Elizabeth Messina does turns to wedding gold, but this next shoot...it's not simply gold. It's sparkly and rich and layered with so many textures of beauty that I can hardly contain my wedding giddiness. Gold times about a million. Elizabeth shot the feature for the on-newstands-now edition of Munaluchi Bride, THE most gorgeous wedding magazine ever with an emphasis on brides of color. And the result was give-you-chills kind of beautiful. From the Twigs & Honey headpieces to the Tejani jewels and the drop dead gorgeous fashions, models and florals, every last bit of this is pure delicious. Oh and there is SO much more in the current issue of Munaluchi that will be sure to leave your hearts a-flutter.

From Elizabeth Messina...I was so thrilled when Jacqueline, Editor and Chief of Munaluchi Bride, asked me to fly to New York to photograph an editorial spread. Couture Gowns from some amazing designers....a Castle in New York...beautiful brown skin models....seriously this was a dream come true for me. As the mother of mixed race children I have longed for my work to reflect the beauty I see in my family. I love what Munaluchi is doing and I feel proud to be part of it.
