Hi this is Lauren, for Bubbleroom!

Marrakech Photo Diary

I went to Morocco for three days at the end of January to shoot two editorials for a magazine based in Milan, F Moda. I went with one of my favorite photographer teams, the beautiful talented couple Andoni & Arantxa! The amazing styling was by Monica Rodegher assisted by Angelica Torelli. Make up by Marina D'Andrea and hair by Armando Cherillo. 

The first two nights we stayed inside the Medina of Marrakech at a Riad Dar Darma which was amazing. We shot the first editorial on the terrace of the riad under the hot moroccan sun. 

 We had our sunny lunch break on the terrace with home cooked meats and fresh salads, it was absolutely delicious! 

Best dessert ever....

The wardrobe room looked like an amazing vintage closet, all the creamy whites and safari khakis... amazing styling for the first shooting!!

 We walked around after the shooting having a look at all the beautiful things to buy and all the spices and oils and leathers and lights! Had some mint tea overlooking the Plaza de Yamaa el Fna.

wanted to buy all of them....

 The next morning we left the Medina and went to another hotel, The Taj Palace!

Monica, Martina, Aranxta & Angelica

Of course we were flipping out when we arrived to the next location, and we were greeted by roses falling from the ceiling, it was magical! We were greeted with cute little bracelets and delicious mint tea!

 And a cold moroccan beer of course!

 Unbelievably gorgeous hotel, and there was no one there! It was the soft opening, meaning its opened for only few guests, we we were free to roam around and view everything even the master princess suites! This is also the same hotel where they filmed the second Sex and The City movie.

 My room! I felt like a princess i was jumping up and down of excitement! 

My bathroom!

The lobby/library room! 

Now for the photos we shot while we were in these amazing locations!
