When Matt and I first sat down with these two, we knew they would be absolutely awesome to work with! They had all sorts of ideas for their engagement session, Chuck particularly had some very strange ideas which were vetoed quite quickly by Leslie. One of the ideas however stuck and we ran with it, Chuck desperately wanted to mock the famous American Gothic Painting
. They truly went all out; pitchfork, apron, right down to the pendant on Chucks neck. Yes, I did say Chucks neck…They decided to swap roles for the photo. On Sunday Matt and I arrived a bit early to the Salem Witch House where we had decided to re-create this shot. We were a little worried that we wouldn’t recognize these two. From a mile away we spotted a couple walking down the street in full American Gothic attire.
Matt and I are currently working on editing these wonderful photographs, for now I have posted one of the shots taken after the actual mock. Just to wet your appetite a bit.
Their enthusiasm continued throughout the rest of the shoot, they had lots of special places around salem they were excited to take us to! Not only did they do such a good job of planning the session but they made our job so easy! These two were laughing and joking around the entire time!
Thank you both for all the effort and enthusiasm you brought to the shoot!
We can’t wait to photograph your wedding next May!
Here I am at work capturing photograph number 5, thanks Matt!!
This is why we choose not to wear our Sunday's best to our engagement sessions!
