I am so very pleased and excited to announce a new opportunity I am offering for couples (anyone...you don't have to be engaged or married...just happily together and looking for a way to document it!) to have a fun couple of hours, doing what you love, where you love, and be captured all the while.
I started thinking that sometimes engagement shoots are so predictable, and somewhat generic. The same spots (I am totally guilty of this!) and the same look. I wanted to break free of that and showcase the individual and unique love every couple has that I work with. So I came up with a plan. I have had the pleasure of working with Emily from Emily Elizabeth Events on numerous shoots and I am a big fan of her talent and what she does. I approached her about offering a collaboration for clients: a styled lifestyle shoot. That basically means that we come up with a concept based on the couple's interests, their style, their favorite places, etc. It is uniquely and totally them.
We work as a team closely with the couple to develop the final concept. Emily makes sure it all looks fabulous, working with the couple on everything from what food they might eat, to what they will wear, to making sure collars are straight and makeup isn't smudged during the shoot. I capture it all in an authentic way, because really...the whole shoot is about WHO the couple is. What they love and where they love to be! Emily makes the couple feel completely confident in how they are in front of the camera, and it allows them to be completely themselves!
These lifestyle shoots could mean anything from canoeing in a lake to attending a baseball game, or even something as simple as going out to your favorite restaurant. Whatever you love to do, that's what we're interested in. No more picture perfect backdrops that is someplace you have never even seen...we want to celebrate what makes your relationship unique and special and truly YOU!
The above shoot was our first and couldn't have been more fun. Food, champagne, laughter, sun, the sound of the waves lapping the shore, a canoe ride, and a sunset...all just so perfectly them and it was so causal and comfortable!
If you're interested in more, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out more! Be sure to visit Emily's site to see her wonderful work too!
Hopefully we'll get to work with you in the near future! xo
