Above anything else, traveling inspires me most of all. There is just something about being out of my comfort zone that really makes me open my eyes a bit. So I totally understand Amanda Drost's desire to capture Italy's stunning essence right in her own backyard. With the help of Don FloritoStudio Met MarjetNINA Weddings and Sweet Appetite she whipped up a shoot that will have you craving la dolce vita, and you can see it all right here

From Amanda Drost Fine Art Photography...Italy is such an inspirational country and we just adore i's beauty! That's why this shoot is very close to our hearts, filled with Italian en rustic details.

As we live in The Netherlands the weather is always unpredictable and we do have a lot of rain, therefore we choose a indoor location. It's a fairy tail, dreamy and stunning old greenhouse, with a raspberries backdrop. It hasn't been used for years and fitted our style perfectly with amazing light and creamy floors. To give this inspirational shoot a real Italian feel, we asked model Marissa, as she is a 100% italian girl.

This shoot is all about rustic italian styling, mediterranean feel and romance. The gorgeous elegant and simple bridal dress from Rembo styling combined with the perfect hair and make-up gave Marissa a natural refined look. The table styling with olive branches, a perfect naked cake, wine, citron, candles, stationary and oil, made us literally want to site down and enjoy a glass of red wine and take us away to Italy for a couple of hours. We had some stunning bridal accessories from Sibo Design, long laces to perfection. You can create something styled and beautiful for your wedding at any location and give your friends and family a true and heart warming experience.

The images are captured on film as well as digital by Amanda Drost fine art photography and filmed by the talented Koen from Narratief. This fun and talented team worked perfectly together and we absolutely love the results.
