This photo is from the new issue of Rue Magazine, it’s by the incredibly talented wedding photographer Elizabeth Messina (yes you can hire her to shoot you and your betrothed!) and I am completely nuts for it. It has a retro vibe without resorting to any sort of obvious retro processing. I feel like it could have been taken on the set of Valley of the Dolls, so 60′s and carefree. I love everything about it and you know I am not one for saturated colors preferring a subtle palette to anything with a pop but that’s the testament to Ms. Messina’s talent even someone as set in her color ways as myself can throw caution to the wind and embrace the vibrance of this shot. Summer is officially only 20 days away!
