Speakeasy Photo Shoot Extra: The Unbearable Cuteness of Jane and John

ps 63

Or perhaps I should say, the off-the-charts adorableness of Rosalie Graziano and Matias Polar as Jane and John Allison?

The last shot of the day we did at the press photo shoot was a shot of Jane and John reading “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass”, the two books that respectively serve as the template for each of the newlywed’s through-lines in “Speakeasy“.

The kiss was the last shot Lissa Moira, our director, called for.  It had been a long evening’s shoot, and Peter Welch, our photographer, was already packing up, but Rosalie and Matias were game enough to pose a little longer just for me.  I felt like I was shooting two 1930’s Hollywood musical comedy actors.  They really do look like they hail from that era in these pictures, don’t you think?
