In 1942, the film Casa Blanca debuted to fans all over the world. It was a romantic tale of love and war. It was nominated for 8 Academy Awards and still to this day, is revered as one of the classic Hollywood fairy-tale films.
Today, I give you a modern day tale of romance, 2015’s Ilsa and Rick- Jamie and Joshua.They will debut their love story in just a few short weeks as they prepare to say “I Do”. Casa Blanca, was the theme, and love and romance just came naturally.
I enlisted the help of Elaine Fioravanti of Best Dressed Ginger. She styled this shoot with authentic 1940’s clothing. Joshua and Jamie donned hats from hats.com that married perfectly to their period clothing. The plane was from 1942, the same year that Casa Blanca showed in theaters, and it was the perfect prop to our shoot. Makeup by Trish did an amazing job with Jamie’s makeup by sticking closely to 1940’s makeup trends. Tia Mazy of Amazying Styles and Reclaimed Jewels, rocked Jamie’s locks by curling them to the tune to Ilsa’s Casa Blanca look. Thank you to the Millennium Aviation for allowing us to use the your hanger as our backdrop!
The whole look came together so seamlessly that I had to pinch myself to know that I was getting to shoot this!
I hope you enjoy the show….”Here’s looking at you kid”…
