A 1960s Inspired Love Shoot For Valentines Day
ESTHER & GABE
Is everyone feeling the love? The web and the world is awash with hearts ready for Valentines Day! Did you see my visual ode to St Valentine yesterday – a romantic Inspiration Board of shades of red and gold! Today, I have the most fabulous Love Shoot inspired by the 1960s from Esther & Gabe Bell Studio featuring the most stylish couple and their ruby red VW Beetle – it is fair to say I am more than a little in love with it, and this shoot…..
Hanna & Milan are a gorgeous and real life couple who both work in the fashion world, Hanna as a model, Milan as a hair stylist. After years of being friends and travelling on shoots together, friendship blossomed into love – Milan says ‘with the help of sunshine, beautiful sandy beaches and some Ouzo‘!! They now work together in their own fashion studio where Hanna’s love of nostalgia and all things 1960s and 1970s, has rubbed off on self-confessed modern man Milan to the point where he was convinced to buy a 1968 VW Beetle, which takes pride of place in this shoot. For their wedding in Greece in December, they were unable to take their beloved beetle with them, so they decided to have a fun photo session before the big day. They were lucky enough to find Gabe & Esther from Bell Studio to bring the shoot to life with their beautiful film photography…..
I absolutely adore Hanna and Milan…..and their Beetle! Such a stylish couple, I would love to see what they did for their wedding! There are lots more fabulous photos from this shoot over on Bell Studio’s website – you can see it in all of its glory here. A big thank-you to Esther & Gabe for allowing me to share this gorgeous shoot, so perfect for Valentines Day! And to Milan and Hanna, who will by now be Mr and Mrs, many congratulations!
