Megan + Taylor {Engagements}

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Today I want to talk a little about inspiration. As an artist, inspiration can come from a variety of sources. Sometimes its a perfect song. Other times its that little artifact that takes me back to another time and place and makes me want to play pretend. Occasionally, at least for us photographers, it can be a location. Most people would just drive by it and think none the less of it, but to us its a gold mine!! Take this little white house for instance....

To your average person its just a run down old shack... to me its charming and dreamlike. Perfect for a couple like Megan and Taylor.

I like to call this next part love is sweet! Cheesey I know, but let's be honest, there's nothing sweeter then a newly engaged couple in love!

But more then anything with my job, the thing that inspires me the most... is YOU! That cute happy couple that I meet with and make plans with! I love to hear what things my couples love to do together or what their interests are and incorporate them into their sessions!! After all it is all about the who the two of you are and who you are together!

That being said... Taylor, is a videographer and I have had the pleasure of working with him a couple times already! Megan is a talented florist! When I was brainstorming ideas for their shoot I knew I had to have an antique video camera! We had fun pretending like my camera was the other one for some really funny candids! Just wait til you see Taylor trying to imitate Megan!

And last but not least... not only one of my favorite parts of their session, but one of my favorite engagements shots to date... came from a very last minute inspiration. While picking out what video camera would be most perfect for this session, I laid my eyes on a gorgeous old film projector. Instantly a scene came into my head and I had to have it! This was that picture in my head....

Everything about it turned out absolutely perfect!! Major warm fuzzy feelings for this girl here!! :) What is more romantic then a movie on the lawn and Casablanca?

This picture makes me laugh... Megan didn't think they were suppose to EAT the popcorn and Taylor wad helping himself! They are going to make a great married couple! haha
