We love this vintage inspired story of love! Such a sweet and sentimental imagery story that tells the details of this story so well.
from the creators: “Our creative team is dedicated to infusing each of our editorials with vibrant characters that tell a story. Each of our shoots are meant to inspire the real couples who see them with joy and a wistfulness for old-world romance. This shoot told the love story of Jack & Hazel.
Childhood friends that hadn’t initially considered one another. Jack a Jazz singer, thought is life was complete, until he saw Hazel with new eyes. The greatest of love’s is friendship caught on fire and their’s is a love, a flame, found roaring 1920’s Paris.
The moments caught on camera are meant to be moments after they return to Hazel’s Paris apartment after privately eloping together at a near by church.
Jack serenades Hazel with a song written just for her, they eat a dinner she’s lovingly prepared for them, before dancing the night away to jazz music on an old gramophone. Shy and love struck, Hazel prepares for their wedding night but Jack takes the time to wash her feet before hand, as a symbol of his dedication to serving her and their family for the rest of his life.”
from the planner: “Jack and Hazel remind me of my grandparents, and so I dedicate this shoot to them. They were a beautiful example of love, especially when sometimes the only example of black love was broken. As we developed this story, it was so important to me that we showcased black love in this way: made of pure adoration, wholesome, and beautiful.
My grandfather was a gentleman, he spoke of garden parties and dressing in his Sunday Best. My grandmother was a seamstress… and there is something just beautiful about seeing this couple dance and sway and adore each other… that was so important to capture.
I imagine there were many moments in my grandparent’s early marriage that looked just the same.
Rest in Peace Hope (August, 11 1929-2018)and Richard (April 9, 1919 -2001) Davis.
