A ROMEO AND JULIET (1996) INSPIRED SHOOT

I have always loved romantic movies but when they did a remake of one of the most dramatic, passionate love stories of all… I FELL IN LOVE with it and it became one of my favorite films and of course since Leo DiCaprio was Romeo how could I not love it even more. So, when my super talented photographer friend, Andrea from Andrielle Photography came to me with the idea of an shoot inspired by her favorite movie (What?! Kindred spirits for sure), I just couldn’t say no. We went ahead and began contacting some of the best vendors from the industry and one by one began confirming and loving the idea.  I think my favorite part from the whole shoot wasn’t the actual shooting but the process. Guys, doing something like this is so stressful, exhausting and terribly exhilarating ( at least for my crazy photographer heart ) but I loved it. I got to make new friends, see others work and thrive in their passion and I got to shoot beautiful imagery for those crazy in love cats that you will see in the photos. Now, lets talk about those two cuties! I love working with real couples because their love is, well, real. Chad and Corey were up for anything and when I say they were troopers… yeah, they were serious beasts! The beautiful location we were blessed to shoot in was infested with mosquitos… and they didn’t complain once…not once even when we asked them to take off their shoes and wear practically nothing for those last romantic shots.

So, THANK YOU for reading this crazy rambling post and THANK YOU to all the amazing vendors who decided to team up with us and create a gorgeous inspiration for those couples bold enough to show off their edgy side and romantic souls.

Enjoy!
