As an alternative, I’ve been suggesting studio shoots to my couples. They give engagements and milestone shoots an extra edge, or elevation. It’s a blank canvas; a creative space open to all possibilities. I’ve found recently that working in-studio has made me feel even more artistic and inspired
Their wedding had already been so lovely; it was hard to imagine it getting any lovelier. Let me paint a scene for you: Manny’s on stage, microphone in hand, singing his heart out in karaoke while Jade lines up the perfect break in a game of pool. Plates are filled with mac n cheese, cocktails are abundant, and everyone’s fits look like they belong on a rolling stone cover. There’s laughter, there’s song, there’s cheers-ing and cheering.
This handsome couple hails from Michigan but came out to visit and celebrate being newly engaged. Spending an evening with them, I realized I’ve never spent time with a couple quite like them, the perfect balance between whimsical and sophisticated. They’re so naturally photogenic and genuinely had fun from start to finish. I think you can tell by those sweet little smiles.
