Kristel and Jason were not in the mood for any old engagement session, they wanted an experience that celebrated Kristel’s appreciation for the 1940’s. So, they rented their costumes from Western Costume and had their hair and makeup done professionally. Allie and I filled in as art department, bringing in some of Allie’s grandfather’s old newspapers and suitcases . This was a dream for us, not only because it reminded Allie so much of her modeling days, but that it was a true collaboration between our awesome clients and us. Thanks Kristel and Jason – we had a blast with you guys!
This blog post was especially challenging as we could have easily added forty more photos…so many great shots to choose from!
A note on vintage photo treatments. Our philosophy is to use this post-production technique sparingly: when the theme or attire of the shoot / wedding is vintage (such as the final two photos below), when the mood of a photo is begging for it (dramatic B&W’s come to mind), or when a client asks for it. We do it well, but not on every photo.
Special thanks to our wedding coordinator Alexandra Rembac of Sterling Engagements and Jeff Cooper of Hollywood Locations – Union Station. Without your help, these photos would not have been possible. (sounds dramatic, but it is true!)
