Let me introduce you to Marnie – she’s as effervescent as her field of expertise: Champagne!
Bubble & Flute is an online venture Marnie created to share her reviews of all things Champagne and impart her knowledge in a casual, but professional way. She needed images that showed her bubbly personality and highlighted some of her collection of champagne. What she didn’t want was to come across as an ‘Ab Fab’ wannabe!
We set the scene at Brisbane’s The Emporium Hotel which has it’s own speciality champagne bar. Management were gracious enough to let us move the furniture, the flower arrangements, the magnum bottles, dirty so many of their flutes (those floral glasses were beautiful) and generally have fun in their bar.
Marnie is a shy type (or so she said…) so I wanted to put her at ease in front of my camera and assure her that her images would be just as she imagined. There was much laughter ensuing – and it didn’t take long for her to relax.
It was another of those shoots that just don’t feel like work to me.
