Miss Russia 2017 Official Photosession
The official photoshoot of Miss Russia 2017 Polina PopovaIn took place in
"The official photoshoot was a very emotional project for me. Me and the Miss Russia team got prepared to this event very carefully. Of course, I was very nervous before the shooting, but in a photo studio I met the best professionals and I saw exquisite outfits and gowns and beautiful decorations, and at that moment I realized that everything would go fine. The atmosphere was exceptionally positive during the photosession. The whole team was just wonderful: stylists, make-up artists, assistants and, of course, our photographer — the famous Jonathan Becker, with whom I had already worked before the Miss Russia 2017 finale.
The shooting was very dynamic. During 2 days we changed several locations: we shot in a studio, in a chic interior of a Moscow restaurant, in a park and even on a bridge in the heart of the capital. Perhaps, shooting on the bridge with a view of a magnificent sunset close to the Red Square is something I remember most of all. I remember how the team was constantly worrying that my crown would fall into the water! It was very windy, but fortunately, despite the rainy summer in Moscow, we were absolutely lucky with the weather. We tried very hard, and I hope you will enjoy the result", — Polina said.
