Every so often you get a bride that you click with instantly. Itunu is one of them. She came in with her sister for her consultation. We started talking about her wedding day and what plans she had. She was very excited. The most used word: juicy (I love juicy images…that image is so juicy, looking through sample albums….). During the conversation, she looked at one of my canvas prints (30″x60″) and said: I want a picture like that. She was talking about a beach image that I took at on of my weddings at Ocean City. Although I was jet lagging (just landed at 4AM from San Diego), her enthusiasm was contagious. I was getting excited even though her wedding was months away. I wasn’t even her photographer at that point (but that would change by the end of the meeting). In talking with her (remember, she wanted juicy images), the wheels started spinning in my head. Now, I don’t know about you, but when I think about juicy and couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt come to mind. That’s what was on my mind driving home (and juicy images, I love juicy pictures, juicy, juicy…). I emailed her and asked her: “what do you think about Mr. & Ms. Smith?” …. that’s how the idea for this engagement session came about. We had a blast and combined her vision with some images from my …. juicy idea.
And now, Mr. & Ms. Smith …. hmmm …. Itunu & Tope
…… “Ask me about…” you will have to watch the movie if you want to finish the last line 🙂
