Recently I had the pleasure of enjoying tea at the lovely Bel Cafe with the two members of Ma-Luxe, a full service team that produces high-quality, luxurious photo shoots for brides-to-be as well as glamour sessions for women not counting down the days till the big white dress. I’ve been given access to images from one of Ma-Luxe’s Victoria based glamour sessions, done at the Dunmora Estate on Saanich Inlet and I am so excited to share it with you. Marion and Lisa and their team are a creative force to be reckoned with and in their early days of business have already been flown across the continent (to NYC!!) to produce shoots. Their work is fabulous. Please enjoy images from the Dunmora Diaries glamour session!

Of course a photo shoot isn’t a photo shoot without all of the wonderful vendors who provide the necessary details, from the clothes to the location: Ophelia PhotographyCarly FlintThe Magnolia HotelAdorn AtelierBlush Bridal BoutiqueSwasion Boutique in Victoria, BC, Ooh La La CupcakesPlatinum Floral DesignsStella Haute Coiffeurs and Dunmora Estate. A note about the beautiful estate: “Dunmora is a charming, classic English Tudor-revival home that was originally built in the 1920’s and designed by renowned Architect J. C. M. Keith. The historic Saanich Inlet house has recently been the subject of a very extensive restoration. The original charm and grandeur has been retained and the home now features beamed ceilings, French doors, panelled walls, high end fittings and equipment, four fireplaces, seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.” Wow. I’ll take two please!

What I love about the mission behind Ma-Luxe’s work is that they aim to empower women to discover their confidence by cultivating their own unique look. It’s not a dress-up-fits-all approach, but much more of a be your best self approach. I can’t wait to see more from this talented team!
