Meeting lots of new people is one of the perks of our job. A good photographer can work with anyone, but its a huge bonus when the client-photographer chemistry is there. Right away we knew working with Miles and Christina would be a breeze. They are super friendly and laid back, and even in a non-business setting we’d want to be their friends. Our meetings tend to take 45 minutes to an hour, so when we had to cut this one off after an hour and a half, that was a good sign.
Last weekend we did our first styled engagement shoot and it was a blast. In addition to collaborating with the beauty produced by Petals and Greens Floral and Allison Escalante Makeup, a pristine 1972 Jaguar E Type Convertible was flaunting in the mix. What stole the show, as it rightfully does, was the chemistry of our model couple, Josiah and Allison, who are getting married next year. We struck gold when they won our Instagram contest; they made our shoot as natural and as lovely as could be.
We’re so stoked whenever a good friend gets engaged. Someone we’ve cared about for years finding the one they’ll spend the rest of their years with is some of the best news we could receive. Whenever there is a debate with said friends on whether they want us to attend (“enjoy”) their wedding versus photographing it, almost always our vote is the latter. Being the photographers at a friend’s wedding gives us front row seats to their best day ever. We couldn’t enjoy that privilege more!
