Meet: Sara & Mike

Happy Monday friends!!

Today we're going to kick your week off right with the absolutely adorable Sara & Mike! We got to meet up with these guys for a mentoring session while we were out at United. And since they never really had wedding pictures, they decided to use their mini-headshots for a couples shoot instead. From the second we started, I just fell in love with their love. I adore how comfortable they are with one another. How she makes him laugh and he brings her calm. From this line of work that we're in, we've gotten really good at knowing really great love when we see it. And I can tell you that these two have it! One of my absolute favorite parts of the whole shoot was when I asked Mike (who is a pastor) to pray for Sara. The instant change in the depth of their connection was palpable. And you could feel it in the air. It made me realize even further that this thing that we do is not about walking every couple through the same 27 poses in pursuit of pretty. But to look for the real connection between two people that only they have, and that's what makes it beautiful!

Enjoy!

Meet: Christy & Tsone

Last week Tsone came down from Canada to attend our Walk Through a Wedding workshop (it STILL blows my mind how far people have traveled in for these workshops! At this last one, we had folks from Canada, California, Atlanta, Chicago, Michigan, Maryland, Pittsburgh, and of course CT!!). And since he was coming all this way, he decided to go ahead & make a whole trip out of it with his amazing girlfriend Christy, including hiring us to do a couple's shoot of them all around Yale!

Now let me tell you, on the day of our shoot it was COLD! Coooooold! It was like Antartica wrapped in an igloo wrapped in an ice cream sundae. Cold! Like the kind of cold where you can't feel your fingers to push the shutter anymore cold. But these guys & they're amazing hearts just smiled right through it. And when it got too cold to cuddle, they would bust out some killer dance moves to warm back up! So I mean c'mon, how are you NOT going to shoot your heart out for two people like that?!

Christy & Tsone, it was truly an honor meeting you both. This thing that we do for a living has trained us to observe very quickly when a couple just fits, when everything about them works, when they will be one of the truly great couples of our time that inspires everyone around them. The way you help one another, the way you love one another, the way you take care of one another. That's what you guys are. I see it in you. And if/when the day comes that you two decide to get married....I am totally calling DIBS on the wedding!! :) :)

Love love love you guys!

Editorial: Beneath the Veil

A few faves from a recent fashion & beauty shoot we did!! There is nothing quite like the gray backdrop & Liane is a stunning model! We've been shooting a lot with the XL white umbrella from Profoto and we're LOVING it. It has all the soft pretty light & approximate size of a 5ft octabank, but it pops up in seconds as the umbrella so it's super portable. If you're thinking about starting to play with larger light sources, this is definitely the way to go! Enjoy!!
