Russo Estate Modern Styled Shoot


Light and airy meets dark and moody in this cozy styled shoot at Russo Estate. We love the contrast from the romantic outdoor arbor to the dark copper tones of the indoor fireplace. Whether you’re needing inspiration for a springtime garden party or a cozy wedding in the winter, you’ll find it here.

This styled shoot was instantly inspired by the dark copper colours inside Russo Estate. Coupled with the fireplace, it reminded us of something modern yet cosy, that you and loved one would enjoy some couch time by the fire.

Inspired by the wall, we named the theme Dark Paradise, a moody setting offset by the light and airy feel of the arbour. Romance outside in the golden light before retreating inside for some adoration by the fire, wine and charcuterie.

With the arbour at golden light, we went with soft pastels to really help pull together the story of romance. Inside with went with deep hues to bring us into winter wedding vibes.

We also had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Jacinta and Jeff who were engaged in real life which helped to bring the shoot together. The endearing looks and the slight nervous giggles they gave each other during the day was a chemistry we could not have created. We look forward to seeing them again for their big day too!
