Be still my heart! And then take me to the south of Russia! The mountains, the beautiful flowing dress by BLUEBELLS DRESS, the relaxed natural hair... I love all of it! MARINA MURAVNIK PHOTOGRAPHY & DMITRY MELNIKOF travelled to Adygea in the south of Russia during the northern spring, and were so impressed with the raw beauty and spirit of the landscapes they returned to do this shoot. They were inspired by "The story of love" as they tell it below;
Everyone knew that the Elf possessed a gift; he was a genius sculptor. One day he created a beautiful girl, lean and graceful, out of the softest cloud in the sky. At once the Elf fell in love with his creation. But at the same time he became very unhappy because the girl didn't have a heart and couldn't love him back. What was there to do for the poor Elf? The Elf gave her his own beating heart and thus the Nymph was brought to life. What happened to the Elf? Well, he disappeared but not completely. He turned into wind, playing softly with her hair, whispering the words of love in her ears.
