Typically, we meet our couples before they ask us to shoot their wedding. Katie and Mitch were referred to us by a friend who was a groomsman in the wedding we shot last year in San Fran. So, after checking out our site and a series of emails back and forth, it was a done deal — we were shooting Katie and Mitch’s wedding!
Of course, not meeting beforehand meant we did some speculating about what Katie and Mitch would be like before to arriving to shoot their engagement session. Particularly after Mitch said that he had an idea for the shoot, but would tell us about it when we got there because it was a bit weird (the suspense was killing us!!). We knew it would all be fine though — their only “musts” were that we shoot in the Junction where they’d just bought their first house and that their pug, Baja (pronounced bay-ya), be included. Location that is personal to them — perfect — and we love dogs — awesome.
Mitch’s idea wasn’t so weird after all. Mitch and Katie are huge vinyl fans so we did some shots in front of their records and turntables. A couple after our own hearts! Sadly their collection is slightly bigger than ours though! (off to the record store for us?)
Inevitably, at least once a shoot, one of us will come up with a hair-brained scheme. Something a bit different or quirky, if our couple is game. This time, it took the form of “So, how’d you feel about racing around in a laundry cart?” How did Katie and Mitch react? Well, they didn’t take much persuading:
Such an awesome time with you guys. We can’t wait to post your wedding!
