{MAG}rouge feature... Road Trip Shoot by Sutherland Kovach

The theme for the first issue of the {MAG}rouge magazine was Road Trip so of course we had to go on a little one of our own to create our team shoot. Using our fabulous models Toni & Pierre, the idea behind the shoot was a couple heading away for a local road trip for their honeymoon - which in these still rather challenging economic times, seems like a great option. We had borrowed a very vintage land-rover for the shoot which posed some quite amusing problems for myself and my husband on the day. So apparently vintage land-rovers aren't the most straight forward vehicles to drive.. and with a 6ft 2 hubby and a seat that didn't move from it's position it made for a rather amusing start... I was literally doubled over in giggles for the first 10 minutes of driving!! So once he got used to driving it, we were cruising along the motorway, feeling quite cool in our very vintage getup (although not talking to each other as it was so noisy inside) and about 30mins into the trip, going up quite the hill (!!) the clutch decided to give up on us. We literally could. not. change. gears!! Naturally panic sets in, and we were in quite possibly the worst place to stall with no where to pull over, cars racing past us at 100km/hr!! Thankfully we made it to the top of the hill before it completely died, and we had to wait on the side of the road to be rescued by a fellow rougie and then scramble around for a stand in land-rover! It's amusing in hindsight but at the time my husband was pacing the side of the main road cursing that he'd offered to help me out... thank goodness Judit was at the other end with some of her magical sweet treats to ease the pain!

All of Toni's gorgeous outfits are from Trelise Cooper and Pierre's are from Three Wise Men

I had no idea one of my favorite shoots had such a wild backstory! The Land Rover is the perfect accessory, so I'm glad it got there!

This is so creative - and the colors are amazing. So perfectly captured.
