From Vitaly Ageev – “The biggest surprise for our crew was the venue. We chose the location in advance based on some pictures from google and the advice of locals from reviews but we never imagined the greatness of the Rixos Hotel in Sochi, Russia: the century-old walls and the splendor of the building. Around the venue were many other structures abandoned many years ago, devoured by nature and the never-fading beauty of the city. This place was our main source of inspiration.”
From Vitaly Ageev – “We did our best to underline the timeless style of the venue through the details in our shoot while still bringing in something new. Every single touch from the dried flowers to the magnificent calligraphy, jewels of the gown – all these gave the sense of connection between old forgotten times and the present.”
“Being fans of classic photography and harmonious combinations, we brought some movement into the pictures to showcase feelings of time, the sublimity of sunset, breezes, and the romantic love between two hearts.”
