The Sunday R&R 090

Good Morning Trulovers from the Loire Valley!  Today is the second day of shooting the #teamamour styled shoots at the breathtaking Chateau Challain.  Since arriving on Friday, it has been a non-stop creative dialogue amongst the team, but the results from yesterday’s shoots are just AMAZING and as soon as sneak peeks are ready I will be sure to share them.

As I mentioned today is a change of pace from the bridal shoots yesterday, to the more sensual boudoir sessions today.  Set in one of the dramatic bedrooms, Victoria Farr is at work on hair and make up, before our gorgeous real model Rachel takes centre stage with Cat Hepple behind the lens.

If you are curious as to what happens behind the scenes of a photo shoot, don’t forget to follow #teamamour hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!  A short and sweet Sunday R&R today full of French wedding ideas, but there is a fabulous real life wedding for you tomorrow and normal service will be back from Tuesday onwards.

For the Sunday R&R I started the week off with epic proportions with an Out of Africa styled shoot that is something out of a movie set!  See the full Out of Africa wedding themed shoot here.

Tuesday started off with a different tone, of soft pastels for a calming and relaxed wedding, see my pretty pastel wedding ideas.
